Deep breaths, people. The worst has happened, & now we need to think about what we can do to deal with it.
Together we can propose plans for a democracy and economy that work for the vast majority of people living in them, calling out the system as rigged, showing the ways men like Trump rigged it and charting a tangible way forward. That socialist Bernie Sanders remains one of the country’s most popular politicians should inspire some hope, as should the fact that large majorities of Americans favor raising the minimum wage, reforming the criminal justice system and taking on climate change.

BLACK LIVES MATTER IS NOT A HATE GROUP

BLM is NOT a violent group. They don't hate anyone
They advocate against police brutality for all people, not just blacks. They also participate in marches against inner city violence, but many people do not know that or conveniently ignore it.

BLM - What does it mean?

The name BLM IS of critical importance because it highlight to the atrocities and unfair practices the police and the law against the African-American community. Every time a black man or woman is gunned down, and no one is held responsible, it sends the message that Black Lives Don’t Matter.

What’s Wrong With ‘All Lives Matter’?
In the wake of the recent killings of unarmed black men and women by police, and the failure to prosecute the killers, the message being sent to black communities is that they don’t matter, that they are “disposable.” Posters reading “Black Lives Matter,” “Hands Up. Don’t Shoot,” “I Can’t Breathe,” communicate the reality of a specific kind of racial vulnerability that black people experience on a daily basis. How does all this communicate to black people that their lives don’t matter?
