    Makes me laugh because BLM is being portrayed as the equivalent of KKK, EDL and other racist groups but thats based purely on the existence of these groups.
    If these groups didnt exist, BLM wouldnt be compared to them or wouldnt be seen as racist.
    But unfortunately, we seem to only be only to understand BLM based on the models of pre existing white groups.
    So because these white groups tend to be racist. We then in turn assume a black group is also racist.
    Yet thats not what BLM was born out of. It was created to raise awareness for circumstances where blacks are poorly treated.

    EDL exists under the guise of preserving english heritage yet they spend more time talking about other races and little time actually discussing english heritage.
    They never support white people and their downfalls but if a black person had an issue they know BLM would be there to help.
    EDL would be too busy yelling at muslims outside a mosque to do anything.

    Will there actually be black people at this protest, or will it be the same, upper class white kids who blockaded Heathrow a few months back?

    Just because a large group of white people tend to be racist doesnt mean a large group of black people will be

    If you could read, youd see the protest already happened.
    Also if you could read, youd see they protested for white families affected. So yes, white people where there.
    Supporting each other.
    Nice, right?

    Well the 9 who held up planes at london city airport were all white so....

    And its a large organisation so there may be many but thats not the majority and if you were to go to a BLM meeting or gathering, youd never hear them say "today lets kill some white people/disrupt lives/cause a riot" all they want is for law enforcers to start respecting their lives.

    You heard nothing about this protest until this thread, why?
    Because it was a peaceful trouble free event.
    If there was any trouble you'd have known about it but there wasn't yet many many people attended this demonstration.

    Why not? Should we start expecting endangered animals to protest for themselves then?

    See that's a racist stance because black people don't exclude based on race. White people are more than welcome in BLM because all BLM does is fight for rights of black people.
    They have nothing against white people.

    But in this particular instance they werent so your point is irrelevant.
    Yawn, stop trolling or get off your high horse.

    When your own post scrolling down it mentions a lot about America, you then say me thinking its more about America is irrelevant.

    Get off your high horse and/or use your brain.

    It doesnt mention it "a lot" its only mentioned when discussing the origins of BLM which is american.
    So calm down.

    Which it was.

    In this particular post they are fighting a British issue not an American one.

    Even if they have latched onto anerican issues which I wholly agree with, that's not the case in THIS instance.

    Except your post mentioned the history behind it, it was to highlight issues not just in the UK but America.

    So overall it had more focus on America rather than primarily British which just had focus around the world.

    As if it was about ethnic problems worldwide why mention just UK and America unless it was to focus on America.

    Also you would have read that the UFFC have been demonstrating against police brutality for18 years so they HAVEN'T latched onto american issues they were birthed as a direct result to issues in the UK.
    In fact this is the first year that BLM has protested with them.

    Because BLM is the one people are focusing on as the media attention is being given to them, that in itself is what I am annoyed about because as you say there has been ongoing protests for years (which go pretty much unnoticed) only because BLM is involved does it get attention but then BLM are essentially taking it as their own.

    No, fool.
    Someone asked "will there actually be black people protesting or will they all be white like the airport protest?"
    And i said in this protest it was a mix of races.
