    So yesterday Black Lives Matters Protesters crashed a speaking event at the Netroots Nation featuring Bernie Sanders:



    Now if you don't know, Bernie is against the death penalty, thinks the economy/jobs are the biggest issue for the Black community, is against stiff sentences for non violent offenses and wants tougher bank regulations. He has voted like this for 5o years.

    Meanwhile, Hilary Clinton was for the death penalty, helped destroy Africa re: Libya, is instrumental in keeping Haiti under occupation, her husband passed bills that allowed Blacks to serve stiffer sentences for selling drugs, her husband passed a bill allowing banks to give Blacks predatory loans and she waited well after Bernie Sanders to speak about the Charleston Shooting.

    So why did the Black Live Matter movement choose to put pressure on Bernie and not Hilary. Well, here is the logic from Dream Hampton:



    I get it....police brutality, but only 1000 people die every year due to police brutality. How many Black people are dying simply from poverty? When these online feminist think transphobia and police brutality are the main issues plaguing the Black community, are they really doing us justice? If Black people were being employed at a higher rate, if less of us were being imprisoned and thus could be productive citizens, if the government did indeed give us some kind of stimulus then could we not fund our own communities and protect ourselves from the very violence that they are complaining about? It seems myopic.

    No surprise black lives matter leaders are "black feminists" and lesbians/gays. :sas2:

    I wonder what the employment statistics are for gay blacks. I wonder if it's higher than non gay blacks :ohhh:

    They are middle class.

    They never been to the hood which is why they think unemployment isn't an issue.

    Black people have always been killed over stupid petty stuff. It isn't until recently that attention was put on it. Blacklivesmatter is a trend that makes people feel like they're the next Malcolm X.

    there just attention whores at the end of the day. they actually believe running around screaming and creating twitter hashtags makes a difference. not surprising because it's a bunch of women and gay dudes.

    That whole #BlackLiveMatter hashtag is futile because why are we advocating something that people should innately know ? It's really getting to the point that everyday I wake up infuriated because everything they're saying from how we frequently get killed by cops , Lack of jobs etc THEY ALREADY fukkING KNOW ! because for the most part they made a concentrated effort for the conditions to remain that way so why would they put something they benefit from to a cease to appease to us ? Cats need to stop the constant desire for white acceptance and build our own infrastructure from scratch , until us as a whole don't realize that our primary problem are economic and we continue to put our bread in the white business while we act oblivious to ours and not supporting we're just running on a treadmill for the meantime ..

    I don't like the blacklivesmatter, it's like begging to me. It's asking for acceptance and mercy. You don't ask for respect, you demand it.

    Seems to me that these gay and lesbian feminists are being funded by rich cacs with the ultimate goal of ruining movements, switching it to gay, lesbian, trans and women issues and for the gay feminists to be accepted into white society. But the later won't happen.

    Violence is a product of poverty, mostly, but they want the violence to be the main concern :rudy:


    Poor people are going to rob, steal, kill, regardless if a cop stops shooting us. Economy first.
