Round 4: Rebuttals/conclusion

I am arguing that the "Black Lives Matter" (BLM) movement is not effective in its main purpose of bringing racial equality. This extends to all parties using the term BLM.

Con

I accept the debate. It is important to note that Pro has the BoP since he is instigating the debate and is making the claim; the resolution.

The BLM movement's goal is bringing racial equality. Since the establishment of the BLM movement, if society is any farther towards reaching that goal, then the BLM movement is effective and I win the debate.

Four comments and 50% are racist (sans this comment). That's an amazing and disturbing statistic. The point of the very name of the movement is that participants observe that black lives do not matter within the current status quo. None of the two bigots below have offered anything to suggest that this observation is wrong.

By the way, one could argue the very posting of this topic negates the truth claim of the resolution. (IE: if it was so ineffective, it would not be a debate topic here to begin with.

Its effectiveness, or lack thereof depends on their motive. Is it truly to affect social change? Or is it a publicity scheme (as some commenter already mentioned) that seeks to intimidate law enforcement via bad publicity. I honestly don't know what their goal is. It seems to me its solely to alienate the ethnicity (by choosing to exclude other lives) and advocate for people who have no respect for law enforcement.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro forfeited three rounds. Due to those forfeits, Pro was unable to fulfill the burden of demonstrating the resolution true. As such, I vote Con on arguments and conduct on the basis of the BOP and the forfeits.
