Ishkur: SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Ishkur: SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Ishkur: SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Obviously it was founded by self professed Marxists

How do you know this? Do you even know who they are? Their names?

The org has three founders.

Patrisse Cullors : "We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular, we're trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories." Said in response to criticism by other black leaders that BLM didn't have an ideology.

Alicia Garza : See above

Opal Tometti : No info

I said obviously, since this comes up all the time with documentation. https://youtu.be/HgEUbS​zOTZ8

Ah, I see the problem now.

You use Marxism in its colloquial (re: pejorative) context whereas they use it in its ideological context.

Me : BLM was founded by self-professed Marxists

You : Says who?

Me : Here they are saying they're trained Marxists

You : But wharrgarbl

I clearly say the answer was given as a response to people saying they don't have an ideology. The ideology appears to be a Marxist one. Who doesn't agree?

Nobody. I stand corrected.

But you seem to think it's a bad thing. Why?

Do you expect them to be Capitalists? What has Capitalism ever done for them?


I'm saying it's a political organization in addition to a social movement and in addition to a phrase that everyone believes in. It's an overloaded term.

If a government starts flying flags of an ideological political organization because the name of the organization is a nice phrase that nobody could disagree with, you need to be suspicious. Especially if people start getting attacked or fired for even questioning it.

If cities started flying Make America Great Again flags, it would be a problem, even if the statement is a nice aspirational phrase. I'm guessing some people would have an issue with that.

LOL, it's just a wacky coincidence that this is your same opinion for any group that is fighting for the equality of black people. Your bullshiat, it fools nobody.

So.  She's painting over yellow paint with black paint.  It still reads BLM..soooooo....  Oh kay.
Not to mention, she went there with one can.

Funnt shiat though, who cares.  Paint it then.


Good point but no one ever claimed that racists were smart.  Yellow paint and easily make the L an E.

Then you have "BEACK LIVE MATTERS".

Obviously it isn't if black people are still dying and disenfranchised.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: If a government starts flying flags of an ideological political organization because the name of the organization is a nice phrase that nobody could disagree with, you need to be suspicious


Why? Pushing ideological agendas is literally all governments do. They can't not do it. Each Administration has a framework of values they want to enforce, from child labor laws to maternity healthcare.

The only thing the government cannot push is a religious point of view. Church and state stays separate as per the First Amendment (although that hasn't stopped some state legislatures from pushing religion anyway).

If you dislike the values that the government has chosen to legislate, then do your democratic duty and vote them out next election.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: If cities started flying Make America Great Again flags, it would be a problem


No it wouldn't. In fact, some of them do that now. Especially during election season.

Saying Apples are delicious doesn't mean Apples are better than Pears.

The statement that Black Lives Matter is a refutation of the counter-point that Black lives do not Matter. It says nothing whatsoever about White Lives, Old Lives, or Young Lives.

I want these people to have to walk door to door explaining that they were stupid and now they want to beg for forgiveness.

You don't get it.  The movement is saying that society is not currently valuing black lives and is letting black people be murdered because of racism.

Shaggy_C: Short attention spans in USA. Another few months and the rain will wash it away anyways. You really think governments are going to pay to keep repainting that year after year?


If they used the same paint that's used for marking road lines it would be good for roughly 3 years.

Skarekrough: Most of you are missing the point....

They did this in the middle of the day with the knowledge that very likely someone would see them.  Their operation wasn't so effective and vast that they would actually cover the ENTIRE thing.

They did it so they would be seen and eventually prosecuted, to which they would pay the fine and that would be it.  And from that they get to be right-wing celebs and lionized by Trump and get a booth/panel at CPAC.

The message here is that white folks can do whatever the fark they want and when they behave badly there is no consequence, matter of fact it's inevitably the opposite of consequences.


In that case, they shouldn't be fined but instead be forced to do community service. Say 500 hours, consisting entirely of cleaning up the BLM sign each time it's defaced. And all of the other throwbacks who perform the same act of vandalism can join them in the cleanup. It'll get quicker and quicker, and the hours will drag on and on since less time will be taken up doing it.

These people make me really sad. The culture of racism runs silent and deep. They simply can't understand. The greatest achievement of systemic racism is making the beneficiaries believe it does not exist.
