    Black lives matter has two ways to look at it..

    1)BLM on a personal level is true as well as all lives matter.

    2)BLM the group is an organization run by Marxist terrorist.

    more and more it's becoming like the days of Noah

    And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Genesis 6:13

    But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24:37

    This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1

    Hate never turns out well no matter which side of the political line in the sand you fall under.
    Whether a hater is a BLM supporter or a hater is a white supremacist supporter people get hurt.

    White supremacists have committed at least 73 murders since the far-right rally two summers ago in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    Intolerance of differing opinions has gone to insane levels anymore.

    No one is all right or all wrong. Never has been true except for the few unique cases in the scriptures.

    But people are not accepting the fact that they could be wrong or that someone else has a better idea than they do.

    Instead of "a more perfect union" we state that we have created "a perfect union".

    There is no beatitude stating "blessed are the theologically correct for they shall..."
    But the theological debates sure do make it look like people believe that there is one.

    I read a book once called "Freakanomics".
    And what I found fascinating was how many of the subjects and situations it talked about had been made political positions but that neither side's solutions were actually correct. But a third party solution that wasn't political were the actual solution to the problems.

    We have people today talking about how they don't want quarantines or masks or vaccines and somehow want to equate Covid-19 to an influenza type virus...none of which are good positions but actually have an underlying good concept that if we choose to be reasonable we can understand and agree with.

    But we, for whatever reason, have grown to be comfortable with the level of narcissism in the world. Being average is unacceptable. Being one of many doesn't work for anyone anymore.

    We all want to be heralded as exceptional and wonderful even when the truth is that our accomplishments are sub-par. The pictures of dinner and cakes and acrobatic bloopers and fitness on social media tell us all too well how things are progressing and what they are progressing towards.
    We don't accomplish things for others seeking no reward but instead are interested in our own accolades...the problem is that eventually if things progress the way they are there aren't going to be any accolades by anyone...only fault finding and eventually violence.

    So...someone was arrested for the shooting and they were shown to be connected to BLM or were one the people who she was in the argument with? Because when you remove the narrators obvious attempt to use this woman's death to advance HIS agenda what you have is: one group of people had an argument with another group at 3:00 in morning and when they seperated a woman from one of the groups got shot by an unknown person. :sigh:

    Or it could be that when they say their slogan of "Black Lives Matter" what they really mean by that is something akin to Black Supremacy...which is just as evil as "White Supremacy" or "Asian Supremacy" or "Arabic Supremacy" or any other type of supremacists vision.

    Just being black can get you killed. By cops, nonetheless.

    That is not what BLM is about. IMO BLM is only tangentially about race.

    Yes, especially when you think about the 20th century. My point is more about the changes I've seen over my lifetime. Every day I see more acts of violence, many unprovoked and random, even against the very young and elderly.

    Violent crime has significantly dropped over the last few decades. The reason you "see" more of it is due to increases in media reporting of such.

    There are some fascinating correlations between changes in media reporting over the years with people's perception of the world. We're highly influenced by the information we take in.

    That may very well be true. Certainly makes sense.
