    I have not heard a peep from BLM in months. Did they go under? Do black lives not matter anymore? Was the organization just a George Soros funded pro-Hillary campaign? The website looks virtually dead. They have almost nothing scheduled. Whats going on with them? I thought that since Trump was elected the cops, sheriffs, and just plain old racists rednecks were now empowered to start assaulting blacks and wrecking havoc? After all the news about "hate crimes being up" (even many here at PRSI claimed hate crimes were up) BLM should be up to their eyeballs in lawsuits, protests, and riots. So why are they so quiet?

    seems that they lost their funding when she lost the campaign.

    But how can that be? Black Lives Matter to democrats. I can't ever believe that the democrats would use black lives as a means to an end alone.:rolleyes:

    To be fair that Iron Lung is very hard to transport.

    But lets stay on topic. This is about BLM. We may need to put out an APB.

    All this proves is that people are going to the site. Perhaps others besides myself are wondering where the hell they are and why they stopped caring. And I appreciate the insult. Keep it classy, buddy.

    They are active here...today.

    If the media doesn't report it... does it really happen at all?

    They are probably out protesting instead of scheduling movements. Not like anyone cares. Soros and the far left corrupted it. All Live Matter (butthurt white people and cops) groups just fight against it at every moment.
    We don't really need organizations to defend us. I got cameras ready on my car and I know when Cops are trying to act 'funny'.

    Interesting. Any info on how many participated? I didn't see it in the article.

    So you don't agree that all life matters. Interesting.

    Not sure how accurate counts are going to be. Since it's targeting highschool kids to take a skip day I would assume the school halls are pretty empty. However it's raining pretty hard and it's a bit chilly out; both factors might reduce the number of participants going to the York Woods Library.

    I think the "interesting" part is that BLM thinks that if you don't support BLM's particular method of self-promotion, then that must mean that you don't support the idea that any lives matter, which is just hogwash.

    It's unfortunate (and personally, very frustrating) that the BLM movement hasn't taken the opportunity to address all of the violence carried out against black people.

    Nope. That cause is literally a response to another cause that has been misconstrued, yet they riot and start twitter wars just like them.
    Both movements can #FrenchKissMyA**

    Forget the cause. Just respond to the question: Do all lives matter?

    BLM would answer "no" to that question.

    You'd have to ask BLM leadership in both counts or it's just self confirmation otherwise.

    Of course I don't think many if any of the BLM people would say no to that. The problem is people have used that phrase to dismiss the concerns about violence against blacks. It would be like saying the fire department doesn't care about all houses when they are just focusing on putting out the fire in the house that is burning down while ignoring the other houses.

    If a doctor tells you that you have a broken arm, do you blurt out, "But, all bones matter!"

    Or, you're sitting at the dinner table, and plates are being handed around, but not to you. You say, "Hey, I'm hungry." And, someone else responds, "We're all hungry." Are you less hungry now that you've been dismissed? The plates still aren't coming to you.

    The phrase "Black Lives Matter" is not "Only Black Lives Matter" or "Black Lives Matter Because They're More Special."

    This is a basic idea that people continue to intentionally misinterpret.

    Of course, all lives matter. But, the dichotomy between how police treat people of color differently continues to crop up with deadly, horrible consequences.
