Black Lives Matter started as a hashtag on Twitter. Now it's a national movement. This Bloomberg QuickTake video explains what it seeks to achieve, how social media has changed it, and why it's now an election issue. Warning: This video contains graphic images.

^^^^ From the news l found, the police were called to Skid Row, LA to investigate vandalism of a car. Allegedly, the man stapped a police officer, and the police shot him with bean bags and tased him.

US police have a history of lying, even when caught on video. I'm skeptical. 

Not that the man with a wheelchair committed vandalism. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. I doubt that they needed to shoot the man in the face (with beanbags or taser) to keep the community safe.

Zimbabwe summons US ambassador over Floyd's death

Quote

“Zimbabwe does not consider itself America's adversary. We prefer having friends and allies to having unhelpful adversity with any other nation including the USA,” Nick Mangwana, a senior official of Zimbabwe's Information Ministry, said on Twitter.

But Brian Nichols, the US ambassador to Zimbabwe, would have none of this after meeting with the country’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Sibusiso Moyo, reminding him of the African nation’s worst rights violations.

Trump’s National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien gave an interview Sunday to the country’s broadcaster ABC claiming foreign adversaries were capitalizing on the ongoing protests in the US, pinpointing Zimbabwe and China in particular.

UN chief urges investigation into police violence against US protesters

Quote

"All cases obviously need to be investigated. Police forces around the world need to have adequate human rights training," he told reporters.

Floyd's death on May 25 in Minneapolis has reignited protests across the US that have flared repeatedly in recent years over police killings of black Americans.

Dujarric said that Gutteres is also concerned about police attacks on journalists during the protests which have hit dozens of US cities, in many cases turning violent and resulting in arson and looting.

"When journalists are attacked, societies are attacked. No democracy can function without press freedom," he said.

Salam,

The slogan is good.

But Islam has stopped racism from the very beginning, through the narrations of the Holy Prophet. And whoever displays his racism and nationalism has moved outside of the religion.

Nevertheless, here is what Malcolm X has experienced during the Islamic pilgrimage, the Hajj, as written in his autobiography:

And after his arrival:

OPINE:  l am watching the news, and as yesterday, they are showing the breadth of international solidarity protests for BLM.

l have not seen such international orchestration since the Commies organized the same in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Well, the US did co-op the communist parties after the collapse/dissolution of the Soviet Union.

And there are a lot of socialists in the Demoncratic Party.

salam alykum wrwb,

alhamdulillah, just saying all lives matter insha'Allah, ant, gnat, Burma, Nagasaki, Marikaka, Palestine(Jerusalem), Iraq(womd), Afghanistan(Obama ibn laden), Syria(isis), colunar virus.

we belong to Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) & to Him(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is our return.

Making noise about cain(la) slaying Abel(عليه السلام) is not going to make him(la) stop. The other day cain(la) was barking telling that they 'shoot' when 'he' cain(la) loots.

So insha'Allah Day of accounting will sort out the cainians(la) apart from the Abelians.

Day of accounting does not depend on anyone's beliefs.

alhamdulillah

:salam:

So I had a very interesting discussion with a neighbor this past weekend. She is a Republican, Conservative, Catholic who is Pro Life, Anti Immigration, Anti Govt. Regulations, etc...and a Trump voter. I recently put up a BLM yard sign in my yard and she caught me outside doing some gardening with my 12 year old daughter. I would like to say that we've always maintained cordial relations as neighbors (the occasional hi/hello when we see her or her family outside, etc...). Here's how the convo went...
 

Quote

 

Hi Syed, how are you?

Hi Marlena, hanging in there and yourself?

Well, not bad...I just wanted to ask you about the sign you put up.

Sure, ask and ye shall receive.

Why do only "Black Lives Matter" ?

I've never said only "Black Lives Matter"...In my heart I believe that all life is sacred.

But your signs says "Black Lives Matter", what about everyone else?

My sign is not a reference to ONLY Black Lives Mattering, its a negation to those who say "Black Lives Do NOT Matter". My sign is up to those people as a response to that. 

but that's not what "Black Lives Matter" means.

Are you sure about that? I can give you a link to various websites where it is being explained what the term means. 

No, that's ok. I have some websites too that say that its only about Black lives.

Well, that's not my intention, nor is that my message. 

Why don't you put up a sign that says "All Lives Matter"?

I would if that term wasn't weaponized by certain bigoted people who's intention is to negate the "Black Lives Matter" movement. 

What do you mean?

Google it and you'll find out what the real meaning behind "All Lives Matter" really is. Not that I don't agree with the belief that All Lives Matter anyway, I just avoid using it because of the weaponization of it.

Why don't you put up a sign that says "Muslim lives matter" too. 

I already did last fall, remember? It said "Hate has no home here" and I remember you watching me put it up. 

Oh that one...yeah, I forgot. So why don't you put it up now?

You know what that's a great idea, let me go get that one too.

At that point she realized I wasn't going to take it down, nor was she able to goad me into an argument. She just said ok and walked away.

However, the moral to this story is that there are indeed many people that don't want Black lives to matter. Not saying they hate them outwardly, but they view them in a less than humanistic perspective. As I mentioned she is a hard core Republican who is in her 50's. She was nice to us until she found out we were Muslim, so she's a bit of a bigot anyway.

I've attached pictures of the two signs that are currently up in my yard...its ruffling her feathers everytime she sees them...lol.

What do you mean the US did co-opt communist parties after The Collapse?

I'm not disagreeing with you (I hate communism with a passion), I just want to know how & why they did this considering that the US was supposedly anti-communist during the 40 years of Cold War.

If this is true, this has horrible implications.

When the SU/CCCP collapsed, all these in-country communist parties had no financing. The US came-in with reduced funding an began directing their activities. For example, France. The French Commie Party was behind the anti-hijab, burkini-banning and other anti-Muslim garbage; all at US direction. Pointing this out is what got this hate stuff dropped.

In the same post as you quoted, l commmented about 'looking around.'

So last week, l was watching France24 and it showed a protest in some US city, likely one shot in any of several cities they were showing. In one shot, this girl is holding a brown cardboard sign promoting Angela Davis who ran as the vice-presidential candidate with Gus Hall on the CPUSA ticket and is infamous for involvement with the Soledad Brothers.

The Christians’ “‘god’ incarnate,” in their view, is a white Aryan who looks, acts, and talks just like a sinful human being.

Christianity = white supremacy and selfishness (hence ties between Christian idolatry, homosexuality, and fascism).

Simple equation. Also explains why Christians rather than Jews invented Zionism to eliminate a religious rival.

Except that the overwhelming majority of Western Christians don't believe that at all, and emphasize Jesus' (عليه السلام) Jewishness frequently, and have moved away from the evangelical consensus of twenty five years ago that Jesus was "white", a "christian" (I swear there were people in my own city who believed this) and the "father of European civilization" because well... he wasn't.

These are the "moderate Christians" that we need to "have on our side" :shifty:

US Police kills another black man amid ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests

Quote

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation released surveillance footage from outside Wendy's restaurant, where Brooks was shot. The video captured Brooks running away with what appears to be the officer's Taser, before he turns around and points it at the officer, Sputnik reported.

According to the GBA's press release, police responded to a report at around 10.33 pm about a man sleeping in his vehicle in the restaurant's drive-through causing difficulty for other drivers. He failed the sobriety tests and initiated an altercation.

Footage shared online shows Brooks grabbing what law enforcement believe was an officer's Taser and trying to flee. As one of the officers runs to chase him, the camera looses them from sight, but records the sound of three gunshots.

"During a physical struggle with officers, Brooks obtained one of the officer's Tasers and began to flee from the scene. Officers pursued Brooks on foot and during the chase, Brooks turned and pointed the Taser at the officer. The officer fired his weapon, striking Brooks," the press release read.

Photo and video footage posted on social media shows protesters gathered at the site where Brooks was shot on Saturday, demanding that Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields resign — which she did shortly after. According to local media, there is a whole list of more protests scheduled to take place across the city, including at Police Headquarters.

"Black Lives Matter" protest in London turns violent

Quote

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Trafalgar square, central London. Black Lives Matter protesters here yet again to stage a peaceful protest against police brutality and racial injustice against people of color, in particular black Britons.

What happened with 17th century slave trader Edward Colston statue and of war time Prime Minister Winston Churchill touched a nerve.

Despite leaders on both sides of the protests calling off today’s event to avoid a clash, more than a hundred on either side decided to come. The BLM protesters here say they had to come and take a stand:

It didn’t take long for the peaceful protest to take a violent turn. Instigators from the ranks of hooligans and other extremist groups provoking the BLM protesters. Within minutes, yellow vested riot police stepped in.

These BLM protesters say, this is not a fight between black and fight. That all they’re asking for is an acknowledgment of the injustices of the past, and an end to the inequalities of the present.

3 people killed in stabbing incident in Reading, England

Quote

Six people were injured during the incident at Forbury Gardens in Reading's town center. Three people died and three others suffered serious injuries, police said.

"There is no intelligence to suggest that there is any further danger to the public, however we urge people to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious by calling police," Hunter said.

Officers near Forbury Gardens in Reading, England, where police responded to a stabbing incident on Saturday, June 20, 2020.

Police asked members of the public not to post images or videos of the incident on social media, but instead to report these to the police. Police also said there was no indication the incident was related to a Black Lives Matter protest that took place in Reading on Saturday.

At least two people suffering from stab wounds were being treated at the nearby Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading following the incident Saturday, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

The South Central Ambulance Service confirmed it responded to the incident to treat "a number of casualties who had sustained injuries as a result of the incident."

"The park was pretty full, a lot of people sat around drinking with friends, when one lone person walked through, suddenly shouted some unintelligible words and went around a large group of around 10, trying to stab them," 20-year-old Lawrence Wort told PA Media.

"He stabbed three of them severely in the neck and under the arms, and then turned and started running towards me, and we turned and started running," Wort said.

The man stabbed another person in the back of the neck, Wort said, before running out of the park.

"My thoughts are with all of those affected by the appalling incident in Reading and my thanks to the emergency services on the scene," British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote on Twitter.

"Deeply concerned to hear reports of an incident in Reading," UK Home Secretary Priti Patel said. "My thoughts are with everyone involved, including police and emergency responders at the scene."

Actually, generally speaking the 'all lives matter' people are firmly against abortion and have been accused of appropriating the BLM slogan for their cause (things like 'Both Lives Matter') whereas the Black Lives Matter group and their legions of supporters wholeheartedly support it, in fact in the early days they had their pro-abortion position as part of their  manifesto, but seem to have removed it (or I can't seem to find it)
