Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter movement 'needed in UK' - BBC News



Personally, I think that all lives matter. Whether they are Black, White or any other colour.

Re: Black Lives Matter

Yes, Lives Matter, if set up in the UK, would get my support.

Re: Black Lives Matter

All lives matter.

But causing disruptions like that is tantamount to causing civil unrest, not only should it not be tolerated but any and all of the offenders should be severely punished with hefty fines and community service.

Hear! Hear!

I have just read the BBC news item contained in the first post and to be honest, I could not believe my eyes. The BBC item just describes these demos as ‘events’. Try telling that to people who missed their flights.

The very first line was not about the substantial disruption being caused, but:

"Activists have voiced hopes that a strong Black Lives Matter movement can be built in Britain following the growth of the campaign in the US."

WHAT?? Isn't that incitement to civil unrest, especially if you go on to read the rest of the article?

Re: Black Lives Matter

Black lives matter.
Blatant racism is ever I heard it. What about white lives, or brown lives, or yellow or red lives, don't they matter?
I'm so shocked by this! I'm off down the garden to hug a tree.

Re: Black Lives Matter

I was talking to a friend of mine earlier this evening and no matter what I said he wouldn't hear any of it, but insisted it should happen nationwide regardless of consequences, and no he had absolutely no remorse whatsoever for the people who may of missed their holiday or business flights or held-up in traffic.

Now that's what I call racism. (no, he's not a white person)

Re: Black Lives Matter

Blacklivesmatter only seem to be interested in black lives taken by someone who is not black.
It's a concept imported into the UK, however the UK does not have the same issues as the USA.
If you try to argue the Alllivesmatter perspective all you get in return is the answer 'That's why you're part of the problem'.....or you're called a racist.

Now that does surprise me Oldfogy having had some rather interesting conversations with the person, if you had asked my opinion I would have said `the person` would have had the opposite opinion. Having said that I think both he and I would have an enjoyable debate on the subject as he is such a likeable `person`
Interesting.
