Which demographic should the Black Lives Matter target with their messaging?
They should target that message toward the people who are most likely to kill them.
So, blacks, obviously.
That's what I was gonna say, lmao. They should pay attention to the crime rate
Those in power, systems that appear to act contrary to the idea that black lives matter.
What, in your opinion, is the real source of their angst?
Could you be more specific?
Judicial system abuses- police brutality and racial profiling, harsher sentences for black people
What part of systematic do you not understand? Perhaps a dictionary or google might help you. Perhaps if Jesus came down and did a PowerPoint presentation for you would that help?
Do you think police commonly beat on black people even without warrant? They just like to beat them up?
They have good reason to profile certain groups more... when 40% of all homicides are committed by 13%, and most cops deaths from shooting comes from that 13%, I'd expect them to be more cautious around the 13%.
13% is the Black population.
I guess Jesus better get down here with that PowerPoint presentation fast. What I think if fucking irrelevant. While we are waiting for Jesus to get here here's a link to google.
-Luftwaffe- Didn't they teach you anything in school? Are you not capable of comparing and contrasting things or is it all white noise to you? Of course there's bias out there. Thanks for stating the obvious. What is this take your brain out before you post Friday?
Google is rather liberal and promotes liberal results first. There's no denying this just look at YouTube's (Google owned) recommendation list.
Are you stuck in retard mode or is today an exception?
The part where you saying its systemic is simply your own perception and not based in reality. How's that for starters?
I believe Luftwaffe has given you some facts to get your research going. Try starting there.
Where is Jesus with that damn PowerPoint? The guy made a post and used the word systemic. You seem to not understand what the word means so when Jesus is here maybe you might want to hit him up for a dictionary next Christmas.
Ah, you're one of those that covers up their lack of intelligence with humor. The only problem is you're the only one laughing.
Prove systemic racism exists.
I've got to agree with Luft about Google results... Fox News reports aren't anywhere to be found. Just cnn, pmsnbc, and the rest of the left leaning media.
Whites. Black Lives Matter target their message to blacks is just preaching to the choir. Blacks already know the problems facing the black community. We live it!
Seeing as how they apparently know where the problem lies, don't you think that where the solutions lie as well?
According to a Rasmussen Reports poll taken in Nov. of 2015, 57% of black voters say more oversight and training of police officers would improve the justice system, while 37% of white voters say more cops on the street is the answer.
Polls are based upon people's feelings and perceptions.
Neither. Terrorists shouldn't be negotiated with. Just wiped out.

Black on black crime is a high statistic. Just like white on white is a high statistic. So is Hispanic on Hispanic.
I hate it when people cite the black on black crime statistic because of course that number is going to be high. Crimes are committed within the communities that you live in and the circle of friends you have. It's simple sociology that black people hang around other black people, just like its more likely for white people to hang around other white people. So when a crime is committed, it's most likely going to be within your race. 83% of white murder victims were killed by white suspects but I don't see anybody calling that an epidemic (FBI).
Paul, while what you're saying is common sense, you miss the fact that there is a real epidemic amongst the black communities. White neighborhoods don't have the same high numbers of murders. They also don't have the same amount of poverty and drug abuse.
Everyone who doesn't agree with them.
Democrats, liberals, and progressives.
