I think it is important for me to state that I believe black lives matter, however am very against the #BLM movement. It is a Marxist organisation which manipulates the media, taking small snippets of footage and dramatically twisting it in favour of their narrative. In accepting this debate, you believe that #BLM is a necessary movement, as black people are being targeted by a systemically racist police force.
It is important to note that Jacob Black had a history of assaulting police, Past charges of domestic abuse and sex crimes which resulted in a warrant for his arrest. Is there any evidence that this was racially motivated? No. Is there evidence that there was no weapon in the car? No. Does the video show Jacob Black resisting? Yes.
- Systemic Racism exists against Black Americans in many different ways and is concerning
- BLM is meant to solve this issue that exists
- BLM is necessary
Bolded sentence illustrates a fallacyby ignorance. Pro did not prove that there WOULD BE weapons in the car at all.Jacob Blake, although was guilty of some crimes, does not deserve to be shot tonear-fatal states compared to other crime committers, especially WhiteAmericans.
- Suspected of a "severe" crime,
- Posing an immediate threat to officers, and
- Actively resisting arrest.
- In the case of Jacob Blake, the suspect was indeed involved in a severe crime. Officers were informed by the dispatcher that there was a wanted man at the cite of apprehension and that there was a warrant for Blakes arrest for a third-degree sexual assault.
- Jacob Blake was indeed an immediate threat to the officers when he reached into his SUV and reached into the cup holder. At this point, officers could not determine what Blake was grabbing , which immediately raised the threat of which they were in.
- This point is quite self explanatory. The whole video captured Blake resisting arrest. He ignored all orders to drop his knife, and even forcefully put one of the officers in a headlock. According to the police union,
"Based on the inability to gain compliance and control after using verbal, physical and less-lethal means, the officers drew their firearms,"
You have a white teenagerillegally carrying a gun and killing/injuring people on the scene and not beingshot once by the cops whereas the cops killed a kid that has a weakened gun andisn't even shooting it. Is this fair at all?
The defence of one's person or interests, especially through the use of physical force, which is permitted in certain cases as an answer to a charge of violent crime.
He's scaring the sh*t out of everyone... [the gun] is probably fake
disarm and inspect the gun, butno, they shot him
Claim: Black people are killed in more proportions compared to whites.
Claim: They would also be moreprone to get in the jail for similar crimes, and that they may serve longersentences
Claim: Black people also earn lessthan their white counterparts, on average
Claim: Teachers are also morelikely to label black students as troublemakers, for some reason
In Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser emblazoned the enormous yellow words "BLACK LIVES MATTER" on 16th Street. Protesters quickly added "DEFUND THE POLICE." One month later, 11-year-old Davon McNeal was shot in the head while heading to a family cookout on July 4. His grandfather, John Ayala, lamented: "We're protesting for months, for weeks, saying, 'Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter.' Black lives matter it seems like, only when a police officer shoots a black person. What about all the black-on-black crime that's happening in the community?"McNeal was just one of the latest victims of a wave of violence gripping America's major cities. Last weekend, at least 89 people were shot in Chicago, leaving at least 17 dead. Shootings in Philadelphia have spiked 67%. In the first week of June, Los Angeles saw a shocking 250% increase in murders from the prior week. New York City's shootings have skyrocketed 44% over last year's numbers; every person shot there the week of June 29 — 101 — was from a minority community.
It turns out that the agenda of Black Lives Matter, which includes fighting against the prevalence of police — a call taken up by Democratic mayors and city councils around the United States — endangers Black lives far more than the presence of police.
Correct, but it's not what you think. Consider this for a moment. If you picked 100 people randomly, 13 would be black and 76 would be white. Now, if you had 100 dead bodies in a room, 53 of them would be because of those 13 people. Think! If you had another room full of robbery victims, 54 of the victims will be because of those 13 black men.
Not only that but it is actually illegal to pay someone less because of their race. Like I mentioned in my last paragraph, if this were the case, then where is the law suit? There will be an extraordinarily large pay out to anyone who puts an end to this injustice. Of course, the reason this hasn't occurred is because it is false.
Also correct. However, you once again neglect a key factor by ignoring the critical data regarding disciplinary disparities: do black students in fact misbehave more than white students? You assume that black students and white students act identically in class and proceeds to document their different rates of discipline, a fatal flaw.
#BLM does not care about black livesBack in May, when this whole situation arose, the #BLM folks did indeed protest against police brutality (doesn't exist). However, they quickly evolved into an organisation which debates over the validity of rioting, looting defunding the police and tearing down statues of Christopher Columbus. The following is an exert from a piece written by lawyer and chief editor of the Daily wire, Ben Shapiro.
Marxism-Leninism is real communism, National Socialism is not real communism. You cannot blame on Communism the examples that are not real communism(The mass crimes committed against Jews should not be counted under Communism, despite the name "National Socialism"), for that if Communism is necessary, these examples do not make it unnecessary.
How are black people oppressed?
What would you have done if a boy pointed what you thought was a gun at you? (Since you continued to mention Tamir Rice)
What would you have done if you came in contact a man whom you knew had a history of assaulting officers and he reached into his SUV? (Since you continued to mention Jacob Blake)
How did Barack Obama get elected in a supposedly racist country which only has a population of 12 percent black people?
Such a movement is not onlynecessary (considering racism exists in the US), but it is somewhat working. Myopponent would need to deny the facts of racism against Blacks, which he didnot.
Local leaders have backed efforts to remove statues in some cities and states.
Such moves have not been limited to the U.S.: In Bristol in the United Kingdom, protesters tore down the stature of a slave trader and then rolled it into a river.
Redirected at least $100 million to $150 million from the LAPD budget to disadvantaged communities and communities of colour. The mayor expressed support and pledged additional funds to support the Black community.
The Miami Police department banned officers from using a “carotid restraint,” known as a chokehold.
The Louisville City Council unanimously passed Breonna's Law banning no-knock search warrants after the killing of emergency room technician Breonna Taylor March.
Because they commit more crimes? Because they are less rich.
There is about a thousand people killed bythe said group per year.
It is ironic that in 2019 only 22 people arekilled on death penalty machines
the usageof a model gun by a kid, and a FABRICATED CHECK grants for death. I reallydon't. BLM is there to stop incidents like this.
