    hmm missed that if she did, then she is ignoring the published facts. Still like her main points, a bit of common sense in this row.

    As a journalist in the LA times said "the words could be serving as a political rallying cry or referring to the activist organization. Or it could be the fuzzily applied label used to describe a wide range of protests and conversations focused on racial inequality.". The founders of the activist organisation's politics has no bearing on BLM as "a wide range of protests" etc.

    This has happened. That doesn't mean it's a characteristic of BLM as a whole. Also whatever the anti-capitalism there may be across the pond, it is considerably less the focus than the UK.

    I will have to buy them a teacup. Not sure if its the Gazette or the parents who can't spell.

    Not helpful to turn everything into a race issue, it probably gives young ethnics less hope for their future. Think the major problem is inequality which has been driven by low skilled immigration. If your parents are manual workers you have less chance of high achieving than those born to affluent parents regardless of ethnicity. There's some predominantly white deprived places in the UK. Best approach is to ignore race and focus on improving lots of all lower skilled workers.

    OK so you are apologising for an organisation that is campaigning based on proven lies and has driven deaths up astronomically in the US?

    Black Lives Matter led to record number of mass shootings - Opeds - Israel National News

    In Portland, where there have been over 100 days of BLM riots, shootings shot up from 299 for all of 2019 to 488 for the year so far. In the first month of BLM protests, shootings nearly doubled from 31 in 2019 to 61. In August, the shootings nearly tripled relative to 2019.
    In Austin, the murder rate rose 67 percent. At the end of August, the city recorded three murders in 24 hours. A homeless woman was shot when 60 hurricane evacuees began fighting in the street and shooting each other.
    “We know we have at least 23 rounds discharged last night,” Chief David McKichan mentioned at one press conference.
    In New York City, shootings rose 140 percent since the period roughly overlapping with BLM riots. And murders rose by over 50 percent. Behind those numbers are 90 murder victims. They’re part of the political price that Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Democrats paid for their support for BLM.
    Using weasel words to claim an organisation that is openly wishing to work towards anarchy is pretty offensive.

    Judge people and organisations by their actions, there are plenty of things wrong that need fixing where the door is already open. Slavery still happens across the world including Africa's favourite customer for slaves Arabia, stop and search appearing to target BAME, poorer education & Job outcomes. To name a few.

    The actual actions of BLM seem to be pulling down centuries old statues of merchants that took part in a millennia old trade which the UK decided needed to be stopped. Or vandalising statues of national heroes on tenuous grounds. Hardly moving the argument forward.

    If being saddened by that is in your opinion is being "triggered" it says more about you than me.

    OK, triggered, do you know the difference between causation and correlation?
    Is the increase in shootings purely being carried out by those involved in BLM?
    Is your logic that if someone shoots a protestor that the protestor is 100% to blame?

    And, of course, your chosen source is choosing "BLM = Democrat, therefore everyone MUST vote Trump to end all shootings in the US."

    Some ethnicities/cultures will achieve better outcomes than others, much of this is down to cultural differences not discrimination. Why traditionally do Pakistanis do worse than Indians in UK education until 60 odd years ago they were the same country?

    Oh I forget you believe in things happening in mysterious ways. So the twofold to tenfold increase is just random and nothing to do with the Police either being tied up policing the demonstrations or by protestors either side shooting each other or their own or even completely innocent people.


    10 seconds of googling and 5 people killed as a direct result of BLM lawlessness.

    Two teenagers shot in Seattle'''s Chop autonomous zone - BBC News

    A teenager has been killed and another critically wounded in a shooting in Seattle's autonomous zone.One teenager, 16, was fatally shot and died after being taken to hospital. The other victim, 14, is in intensive care.


    The zone, initially known as Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (Chaz) and now called Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (Chop), was set up amid protests over the killing of George Floyd.


    As it is part of a protest against police brutality, it is self-policing.
    Although the site was initially occupied by hundreds of peaceful protesters, this is the fourth shooting within the boundaries of Chop in the last 10 days.In the first shooting, which happened in the early hours of 20 June, a 19-year-old man called Horace Lorenzo Anderson was killed and a 33-year-old man was injured.


    A second shooting the next day left a 17-year-old boy injured, and another person was wounded in a third shooting two days later.

    Father of 8-year-old fatally shot in Atlanta addresses BLM movement: 'They say black lives matter. You killed your own'

    The father of an 8-year-old who was shot and killed in Atlanta over Fourth of July weekend issued a strong message to Black Lives Matter activists following his daughter’s death.Secoriea Turner was shot and killed Saturday when a group opened fire on a car she was in near a Wendy's where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed. Her parents, Secoriya Williamson and Charmaine Turner, joined Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms during a Sunday night press conference, where Williamson addressed the Black Lives Matter movement.
    “They say black lives matter,” Turner’s father said. “You killed your own. You killed your own this time. … They killed my baby because she crossed the barrier and made a U-turn. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody,” he said.

    My source was the Israel National news their writer may be anti democrat but they did quote figures from reputable sources. Do point out a democrat explaining the issue.
