Why Presidential Candidates Can"t Ignore Black Lives Matter

Since the lethal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, a year ago, examinations of race in this nation have been strained. His passing, and the resulting killings of unarmed dark men and ladies because of the police, have lifted the discussion on race out of dark family units and onto the national stage.

As the 2016 race cycle gears up, the longstanding issues of imbalance, racial equity, and police fierceness tackle another earnestness. Pretty much as the social equality development battled for legitimate acknowledgment of African Americans' principal human and social equality, the Black Lives Matter development looks to political pioneers to react to this foul play.

I have been watching to see what the presidential hopefuls say"and what they say they will do"about Black Lives Matter.

"The Democratic candidates responded to a question on Black Lives Matter during their debate earlier this month: "Do black lives matter or do all lives matter?" Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner whom pundits deemed the winner that night, answered, "We"ve got to do more about the lives of these children. We need a new New Deal for communities of color." Her response evaded the question and was nebulous at best"given the fact that she never explained what this "new New Deal" entails. In another question, she mentioned employing police body cameras and addressing mass incarceration."

Black Lives Matter movement protestors are not just looking for vague answers though, anyone can say anything if the people want to hear it.

"One of these candidates will be elected as the next President of the United States of America. He or she will sign or veto laws that address systemic inequities at the federal level. In other words: he or she will have the ability to "let justice roll down like waters" (Amos 5:24), so that it might drench those who have endured the scorching heat of injustice for far too long."

"In view of their platforms, policies, and strategies, regardless of our political leanings, we can and should look for candidates who demonstrate sincere concern over oppression, disparity, and injustice. These are not "niche interests." Nor are they merely a way to appeal to African American voters. Instead, these are areas where the government can hear the concerns of its people and create better systems to sustain the "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" held by all."(http://www.christianitytoday.com...)

What do you think the upcoming president should do about the BLM movement? Shouldn't it be "All lives Matter?"

It irritates me, to no end. The whole movement. Look at this quote, from a black man.

"Black Lives Matter" is a great slogan. As a black man, I agree that black lives matter just as much as the lives of any of our racial counterparts."

How selfish.

According to the definition of "Black Lives Matter" BLM- Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence toward black people.

What I find funny, it that statistics show that blacks are more aggressive, even to their own color.

Why don't they create a movement called "'Black-on-Black Violence"?

I'm not saying whites are perfect, because some Cops have acted unreasonably aggressive to blacks.

I'll be the first to tell you that I understand why cops are more nervous around blacks than they are around any other racial group, but what that quote above meant is "All lives matter." That's not something I can disagree with.

But I'll also tell you that I think there's a real discussion to be had about why black communities are so much more violent than any other racial group's community. This seems like it would be something worth more concern than, say, some black graduate student's hair issues.

You all should love this.

2011 US Crime Statistics by Race (from the FBI)

According to the statistics, more murders have been done by blacks (http://www.whiteoutpress.com...)

Various other crimes are also broken out by race, but the percentages are all similar to the above. Since the FBI stopped including Hispanics, some reports have turned to local major city statistics. One article from Yahoo News seemed to take the above-referenced "push-back" tone while hand-picking murder numbers from 2008.

2008 (Jan-June) New York City Crime Statistics by Race (from Yahoo News)

-83% of all gun assailants were black, while making up 24% of the population

-Blacks and Hispanics together accounted for 98% of all gun assailants

-49 of every 50 muggings and murders were carried out by blacks or Hispanics

-Blacks and Hispanics commit 96% of the crimes in New York, but include only 85% of those stopped during "stop and frisk" incidents.

Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence toward black people. BLM regularly organizes protests around the deaths of black people in killings by law enforcement officers, and broader issues of racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.

Well white people also aren't usually being shot by the police in the way that some of these people are.

All in all, I barely know what I'm talking about, other than "why does it matter"?

It irritates me, to no end. The whole movement. Look at this quote, from a black man.

I agree that the movement is complete nonsense, but what you say below here raises some issues even though I know you're kidding.

"Black Lives Matter" is a great slogan. As a black man, I agree that black lives matter just as much as the lives of any of our racial counterparts."

How selfish.

According to the definition of "Black Lives Matter" BLM- Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence toward black people.

What I find funny, it that statistics show that blacks are more aggressive, even to their own color.

I don't know that I'm comfortable agreeing with all of that. I know you're kidding, but that's not something I'm willing to totally joke about.

I'm not really joking?

Why don't they create a movement called "'Black-on-Black Violence"?
What would the purpose of this movement be?

I'm not saying whites are perfect, because some Cops have acted unreasonably aggressive to blacks.

Well, what's the purpose of the Black Lives Matter movement now?

Blacks commit violence against their own race, all the time.

So do many other races...
I'm not saying I'm all in for the idea of BLM, I'm just wondering what would be the point of a BBV?


Tell me Vaarka, why don't we have a White Lives Matter?

idk, because if we did, it'd be shot down?
But seriously, what would a BBV do?

Have you heard any national news about a white guy, who has refused to be arrested, who have fought against the police officer, who has tried to take away a gun from an officer?

Have you seen on the news, a black man, who's tried to take away a gun from a police officer? I have.

Show me?

"The fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager Saturday by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb came after a struggle for the officer"s gun, police officials said Sunday, in an explanation that met with outrage and skepticism in the largely African-American community.

"The killing of the youth, Michael Brown, 18, ignited protests on Saturday and Sunday in Ferguson, Mo., a working-class suburb of about 20,000 residents. Hundreds of people gathered at the scene of the shooting to question the police and to light candles for Mr. Brown, who was planning to begin college classes on Monday."

They say he was unarmed, but trying to get the gun. http://www.nytimes.com...

Yep. You're reading that right. Why are your lives more superior than whites, Asians, Hispanics? People from every ethnicity die everyday. And when a black person gets shot, its always "the white mans fault."

He just asked if it was selfish to say their lives matter just as much as everyone elses, and you said "yes, why are their lives more superior then others?"

Great answer, definitely answers exactly what he asked.

Also, it's probably because of stereotypes.

You're aware that there are far more (black) communities and organizations that work on gun violence (etc) in black communities then there are groups like BLM right? Like...orders of a magnitude more.

.....-.-

Lets go over the definition, again.

1.Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence toward black people. BLM regularly organizes protests around the deaths of black people in killings by law enforcement officers, and broader issues of racial profiling, police brutality, and racial inequality in the United States criminal justice system.

"campaigns against violence toward black people" this is merely saying that all ethnicities are out to get black people, which isn"t the case. The group merely is arguing "Hey, I"m black! Everyone is out to get us" and that"s not the case, at all.

The statistic I showed about violence, blacks committed more murderers, and assaults with guns.

Why isn"t there a Black on Black violence group? Oh, that"s right, because only white people kill blacks, right?
