BLM is a racist, terrorist hate movement.

The majority of black people who are getting killed by police are violent armed thugs, one of the names I noticed on the UK banners was that of a local (to me) black man who mugged 2 children at knife point and knocked over a mother and her young daughter trying to get away. Perhaps the tendency toward violent behavior is the main reason these morons are getting killed.

I watched an interview with a black lady in a rough black neighborhood in the US, they had recently had a BLM protest in the area, again in protest to a violent thug who pulled a gun on police (or something similar), she told a very telling (and sad) story, recently a little black girl was killed doing her homework in her bedroom by a stray bullet from warring black gangs, she said BLM where nowhere to be seen when it happened, they carried no banners with her name during their protest. They don't care about normal, decent black people, they are fixated on low life thugs.

The biggest cause of the deaths of black people, is other black people, research crime stats if you want verification. They do not want to deal with reality. If they truly cared about black people they would be looking into why there is so much black on black violence, they'd be dealing with gang culture and absent fathers, all big problems in Americas black community. Instead they just try to place blame, that's not constructive.

Other things that 'hint' at them being a demented hate movement:
They are black supremacists, they call for racial segregation, they are inspiring terror attacks, their organiser is on the FBI's most wanted list for terrorism offences and killing a cop, they shout slogans like "what do we want, dead cops..." they demand financial compensation from white people for slavery... and the media do not DARE to call them out on any of this for fear of being called racist. I've even seem the BBC glorifying them, no surprise.

This video absolutely nails down what BLM is really about, please watch it: https://youtu.be/sJHvppVEBTY

To be fair they are slaughtering coloured folk in the states, someone needs to take a stand against it.

Stopping traffic has to be the best way to **** people off. Well, actually maybe if they started knocking door to door or telemarketing.

Unfortunately the Police would be deemed racist if they did, which would play into the protestor's distorted worldview.

Yeah, it's reverse racism. If I went and lay in the middle of the road I'm sure I'd soon be removed.

#BlackAugust why wasn't I told about this? Does this mean I get to go and block off the M5?

What a bunch of toilets for causing this, stopping people from getting to Heathrow and other commutes is just out of bloody order.

You want to protest about Mark Duggan fine but do it in away that doesn't effect others.

It just shows someones intelligence if that the first thing that comes of there mouth is something racist.

Do some people believe they don't have a right to protest?
The whole Mark Duggan saga infuriates me, I don't believe the police did anything wrong but the events that followed were. Is this not the very reason they are protesting in the first place? Their lives are not equal to those of a different colour. Some of the comments posted in this forum( misc)just go to prove that they have a point.
Some of us like to talk about British values but how many of us practice what we preach?

To be fair more black African Americans are slaughtering more black African Americans than anyone else in the states, someone needs to take a stand against it.

Fixed that for you

they have an identity crisis so they have a phantom civil rights movement because that is where they feel comfortable and empowered. it's very sad but lucky it's just a small minority.

Exactly - in the case of Heathrow they are obstructing the highway which AFAIK is an arrestable offence

It's the political elite and their political correctness - they'd sooner turn the other cheek instead of grabbing it by the balls.
Margaret Thatcher wouldn't of put up with such defecate

And lets not forget the political elite can re-arrange their meetings and find other means to continue to work whereby the average worker or holiday maker are the ones to suffer.

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr <<me venting anger

The problem is these activists think this will help fix racism

I wonder if we'll see another riot and mass looting spree this weekend to mark the five year anniversary.

They have a right to protest, but they have no right to prohibit others going about their lives.

I couldn't agree more. I am not a fan of groups like this, they may mean well but come across differently sometimes.
I don't think its appropriate for this to happen on Mark Duggans anniversary considering the chaos the whole fiasco caused. I do believe they have the right to demonstrate/ protest, what I don't believe is causing obstruction or disruption.
As another poster commented i hope the chavs don't use this an an excuse to go another shopping spree.

The problem is that demonstrators/protesters want people to notice them and the best way to do that is to get some publicity. And the best way to get publicity is to inconvenience as many people as possible.

If the media wasn't so keen on reporting every (in the way of things) minor occurrence, these sorts of protest just wouldn't happen. A lot of the blame should be at the doors of the 24/7 news organisations.

I don't doubt that some bright spark at Sky News has already got plans to get news camera crews to the usual troublespots within minutes of any sort of riot kicking off.

Black Lives Matter movement 'needed in UK'

Organiser Joshua Virasami told the BBC black people should come together "to achieve justice and equality in Britain and all over the world".

I think social media has changed the way things are reported on mainstream news. if things are trending and popular, mainstream news feels it needs to cover the story to reflect 'popularity' of said event.

Sam the Eagle who, presumably, could fly, would be able to travel by car then disappear once in France.

Call me cynical but I see this as a ploy for Aid/funding via establishing as a cause representing a specific demographic. They will be registered as a charity and applying for all manner of sponsorship's to 'fund their cause' etc.

Something like this really isn't appropriate in the UK as the original movement was in a completely different context. UK policing and the policing of the USA differ in every regard, from funding levels, equipment, approach to the public, training skills, social challenges they face and even the most basic laws are different.

If anything the most persecuted demographic in the UK is the football fan, be he black/white/red/green or blue!!!

Racism is long gone in the UK, I'm not sure what they're hoping to achieve?, They probably don't even know themselves.
