Blm is bad for the black community due to the fact that the organization refuses to acknowledge the facts, stats, and the reality of what is truly going on. They refuse to admit that;
1. Over 90% of all black homicides are committed by blacks
2. More blacks are shot by hispanic and black cops than white cops.
3. Black males commit more than 50% of the homicides despite being only 6% of the population.

In addition, they tend to create divisiveness by saying things like "pig in a blanket fry them like bacon." and jumping to conclusions before having all of the facts: Example:
1. The shooting of the man in New Orleans was of a man who had an illegal gun, who is a pedophile, and who has a history of resisting arrest. The cops may have used too much force, but isn't this what the court system is for? 2. The cop that shot the man in Minnasota is Mexican. 2. He believed the driver fit the description of a suspect. 3. The Trayvon Martin case was tried on television by MSNBC and other outlests way before all of the facts were in. Trayvon was actually 4 inches taller than Zimmerman. Yet from the pics being shown on tv one was lead to believe that Trayvon was a cute little 10 yr old boy. He had slammed Zimmermans head into the ground hard enough to cause bleeding. He also broke Zimmermans nose. Trayvon went back to get Zimmerman according to the phone call.

Why not talk about the fact that 80% of black children are born out of wedlock? Why not fight for the legalization of drugs? Why not fight for min wage? Universal healthcare? All of these things would help blacks much much more....


BLM is an activist movement campaigning against police brutality and racial inequality in the criminal system. The movement arose in 2014 after the death of Trayvon Martin. The movement is to help remove racism from the justice system

(I recommend citing your sources)
While your stats in the beginning of your argument may prove your point globally, notice how they in no way support the argument that Black Lives Matter is bad for the African-American community
You also said that the one black was killed by a Mexican cop in Minnesota, this has no value to support your argument of BLM being seen as bad for the African-American community. Same goes to your other argument of Trayvon Martin.

The BLM movement is good because not only are they seeking to, demilitarize the police, stop racially inspired killings,and raise public awareness, they are also uniting the black members of society to speak out against unjust and unfair treatment.

The BLM movement is a good movement and has a positive impact on the African-American community. The movement has caused racism to decline at universities and even lead to the resignation of Tim Wolfe at the University of Missouri. The movement is causing several different social communities to unite and unify bringing everyone closer together.
