Very well said.


Supporting the concept of Black Lives Matter doesn't mean blind allegiance to the BLM group. In fact I would venture to guess that the majority of people seeking justice and change by supporting the concept haven't searched out a "mission statement" or position paper. I constantly hear the dog whistles of Marxist organization and "they want to destroy the family unit." Scary sounding notions and put out there to pigeonhole an entire movement towards equality and justice. I believe in the family and also believe in Black Lives Matter.

I am a Christian (Catholic) but, like most people I don't blindly accept all the Church's positions or teachings but I still believe in the tenets of the faith. It sure would be nice to have discussions on these issues without the pejoratives like Marxist and Facists being thrown around.
