The movement is also inherently racist. When they say "people of color", the BLM folk are only referring to African Americans; they are not actually speaking of other ethnic groups. They don't care about Hispanics, Asians, Africans, or Central and South Americans. This movement isn't a sweeping, universally accepted cause - it's a petulant cry for attention from a people who would rather complain than work to change the narrative. As such, it's attracting the less desirable members of the black community - thugs with nothing better to do than smoke weed and run their mouths and act violently.
And that brings me to the point of this article - the assertion that the movement isn't responsible for violence against police and others. I'll sum up my thoughts in one word - bullshit. By understanding the points I made previously, you'll grasp the truth that BLM is a pro-black, anti-white movement. Don't believe me? What color are the cops being killed? White. What about the white reporter and her coworker, who were shot to death on live TV by a disgruntled black former employee.
Black police aren't being targeted. Black politicians aren't having their speeches interrupted. Black news anchors aren't being blown away in front of a national audience. While Black Lives Matter may not be giving the directive to perpetrate these acts of violence, they're indirectly responsible, due to the fact that their message is decidedly anti-white, anti-white cop, anti-white establishment, and is attracting the comment members of the African American community, and the leaders of the movement aren't doing our saying anything to quell the violence.
This movement is counter productive, myopic, petulant, and self-serving. I implore to stop publishing articles like this. The articles - and therefore your "news" agency - are doing a disservice to everyone who reads them. If you're going to continue to publish this passive aggressive, racist drivel, at least publish articles which hold African Americans equally accountable for many of the situations they find themselves in. Until you can do that, your publication is nothing more than an aide to a movement that will only hurt the lives of African Americans in this country.
