Since you used the "becoming" I'll check yes, because I think a growing segment of their members are interested in terrorizing police officers. It's a shame, because I think most of them started off with good intentions.

I believe so, yes. Although not all of the members murder, they are using terror, on a level, to change something that we can't. We can't ever control Racial Profiling or racist cops. But what they are doing may be wrong. Not their ideas, but the execution of said ideas. But they are attacking law enforcement members, and using the phrase, "Black lives matters". They should of stayed calm, and been political to change it, not murder out of prejudice, or harm anyone.
They are already a terrorist group. Let's define "Terrorism" in order to prove this assertion: || FBI Definition of Domestic Terrorism; Link -- https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/investigate/terrorism/terrorism-definition || Terrorism -- "Domestic terrorism" means activities with the following three characteristics: 1) Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law 2) Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping 3) Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S. || Let's break that down now item-by-item with examples of violation: 1) They insight riots against police officers, create anger and animosity against authority, promote violence against police; some individuals have even cited these promotions of violence against police by direct quote just prior to committing violent acts against police and even killing them, they place one skin color (black) above all others time and time again by getting verbally and visibly upset when people say white lives matter or all lives matter, even having the leader of the "Black Live Matter" group and other representatives go on TV and other media outlets attempting to justify to the world why "Black lives matter more than all others" (that is actually by definition, racism); they forcefully trespass and even commit assault in order to forcefully take over public speeches, debates and interviews. These items on top of others fulfill the first requirement. || 2) Coercion by way of forceful and illegal takeover of political assemblies, threats of, and actions against, including harm to police and public possessions. These and much more are followed by a ton of ridiculous demands, law changes, policy changes, law enforcement tactic changes, and more with the accompanying threat of riots, violent protests, violent actions against police and government, and much more. This fulfills the second requirement. || 3) This group is operating on all fronts strictly on domestic jurisdiction. This fulfills the 3rd and final requirement. || So, reading the above information and applying it to the provided FBI definition of domestic terrorism; you make your assumptions on whether this group is currently or is becoming, a domestic terror group.
There striking a cause they know so little about, they harass our hard working police force and there just becoming more and more violent and just horrible people all because some idiot child decided to bring a bb gun in public without the orange tip, which is illegal and then not expect anything to happen how stupid are you people...
Though "terrorist group" may be a stretch, I'll side with it (a hate or hypocritical group may be more applicable). So, the initial, underlying intentions are fine, but the methodology employed (or at least, allowed to occur within/around them) and "aesthetic only" goals of this group is atrocious. Regardless of what they stand for, I understand the slogan...if you think about it, but the common Joe is just going to take it at face value, and this will likely be interpreted as racist/biased/preferential. So BLM...bad slogan. Always address equality issues with neutrality; otherwise, it screams biases and agendas. Lastly...bad "stuff" just happens when this group is involved. Tactics are contradictory to demands...disrespectful, closed-minded, uncivil, oppressive, violent, etc. Even the demands are not well thought out, and preferences and differences ARE NOT the same as racism. Heck, I've yet seen anyone use the word "racism" or "racist" correctly...just wow...open a dictionary people. And absolutely DO NOT give in to demands just because there's a bunch of whinny, screaming people massing to force a decision. Again, agenda, they want it to "appear bad" if you don't answer and give in ASAP...just stop, think, and respond objectively, fairly, and practically...yes, you'll likely be made into a "racist monster" by the media, but the rest of American won't buy into their claims...even if the media says everyone thinks otherwise. Bulk of what media says is biased/manipulative, and we know it.
It promotes separatist values.
yes. they burned baltimore. I mean, white police kill white people too. No one hears about that, do they. you dont see whites on the streets in mobs burning down cities do you? that organization needs to chill a little.
Heh "Becoming" as if it isn't already.
Yes, Many BLM protestors assault opposing ideas with physical violence very often because they're to filled with hate and deceite, Many are on there way to become there own enemys and are basically the same as antifa.
They're racists, but not terrorists.
The last time i checked, BLM still had the same goals in mind (Which have nothing to do with terroristic acts). Separatists that impart in violence shouldn't be considered part of the BLM movement.
I wouldn't say "terrorist"... I'd call them a hate group. Or irrational group of bigots. Or violent and unruly misguided people with a superiority complex.
if BLM is a terrorist group than so is the Tea Party
In what world? Some of you people are so eager to slander this movement that you resort to nonsensical comparisons like this...
