I guess I'm the opposite.

I get triggered by Blue Lives Matter. :lol:



because it should be Blue Liars Murder.

:mrgreen:
I understand.

It sucks because by being so triggered to the words "Black Lives Matter", the people pre-programmed to respond with 'Blue/All Lives Matter' already have had the conversation with the Trump Trolls attacking them (foreign and domestic) so often that they have all their responses all cued up before the person can get their entire point about police brutality to our minority communities out.

Which uses all the trigger phrases we (non-Trump cultist) get spammed with, putting us into a defensive position. Then with the continual spam trolling conversation style (that generally ends up with people LARPing as their favorite hate-radio sock jock yelling at the other person) it is next to impossible to not trigger.

This hardens the bubbles of 'both sides' of the conversation and makes it that much harder for people to come together and realize what is happening before it is just easier to not talk to each other.

Signs set the tone at the Embrace help centers and shelter for victims of domestic and sexual violence in rural Wisconsin. They declare a “safe space,” prohibit firearms and welcome people who are LGBTQ.

As of this summer, they also include “Black Lives Matter.”

In an overwhelmingly White and conservative stretch of the state, those signs of support for victims of color and their struggles with racism have triggered a firestorm — stoking tensions in towns a couple of hours from Minneapolis, where George Floyd died in police custody, and north of Kenosha, where Jacob Blake was shot by officers.

Embrace executive director Katie Bement says she expected “tough conversations” but nothing like this: a parade of board resignations, the loss of $25,000 in funding, the end of valued partnerships with many police departments in the four counties where the nonprofit serves a population of about 90,000. Voters there in 2016 went decisively for President Trump, who has called the Black Lives Matter slogan a “symbol of hate.”

Law enforcement and victim services organizations often work closely, advocates said. But Embrace’s public support of Black Lives Matter came at a time of huge upheaval, as many domestic violence coalitions take a hard look at their relationships to the criminal justice system, said Casey Gwinn, the president of Alliance for HOPE International.

The Alliance helps domestic violence and sexual assault victims at centers bringing together police, prosecutors, advocates, doctors and others. On a call Thursday, Gwinn said, organization leaders from around the country spoke of “incredible stress and strain” from activists in these centers who are saying “we don’t want to deal with the cops anymore.”

Dozens of state coalitions against sexual assault and domestic violence signed onto a June letter that endorses Black Lives Matter and describes a “moment of reckoning” after Floyd’s death under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer. The letter declares the groups’ “failure to listen” to warnings about turning to policing, prosecution and imprisonment as a “primary solution.”

Kelly Miller, executive director of the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence, said the letter was not meant to sever ties with law enforcement. It was not a call to “defund” the police, she said, but a call to look beyond police.

Yet three Idaho groups — the Chiefs of Police Association, Sheriffs Association and the Prosecuting Attorneys Association — responded with letters saying they were ending their relationships with Miller’s group, she said.

None of the associations responded to requests for comment, and Miller declined to provide the letters without the other groups’ consent.

Practically, Miller said, the fallout means these organizations will no longer join her coalition in a years-long Idaho initiative to address bias in the criminal justice system.

“My hope is that over time folks will be able to come back together in the same room,” Miller said.

In Wisconsin, Bement said, she decided it might help to write an “anti-racism” statement explaining her organization’s commitment to Black Lives Matter.

People of color are overrepresented among those seeking Embrace’s help: Just 5 to 6 percent of its four-county service area is non-White, but people of color make up 15 percent of those the organization serves in person.

So we really feel that we can’t remain silent and neutral when we have survivors that we serve, saying that they’re experiencing racism in our community,” Bement said.

She says she brought a draft of the anti-racism statement to a Sept. 24 meeting of Embrace’s board, encountering reservations about language but not outright opposition: “Police brutality” was changed to “police violence,” she said, while the “attempted murder” of Jacob Blake became just “shooting.”

“Racism, police violence, sexual violence, and domestic violence all have the same root causes, and they interact and compound on each other both in society and within the survivors we serve,” the final draft read in part.

One week after it went online, she got an email from the Barron County’s health and human services director: The director was resigning from Embrace’s board as well, and the Barron County Executive Committee had just voted to pull $25,000 in funding.
The next day, an email from law enforcement in Washburn County arrived saying they would have ” no ongoing affiliation” with Embrace.

Burnell Hanson, second vice chair of the county board, confirmed the funding cut was driven by Embrace’s signs and statement.

“If they’re gonna be blowing the horn for Black Lives Matter, we’re not gonna give them that 25,000,” he said, denying the opposition had “anything to do with race.”

“The violence and looting and all that stuff that they’ve been pushing has nothing to do with protesting,” Hanson said of Black Lives Matter. “It’s just violence and looting. Between that and antifa, we’ve got a bunch of crooks running around the country doing bad stuff.”

Barron County officials say they are ending partnerships but still referring victims to Embrace, at least until they find an alternative. Price County Sheriff Brian Schmidt said Embrace has “taken a stance I can’t agree with” but added that the “victims will always come first” and that he will still refer for now, too.

In Washburn County, law enforcement have reached out to another agency based in a county nearby, according to the sheriff department.

“The Washburn County Sheriff’s Office takes its responsibility to serve and protect all our community members very serious and will continue to do so,” it said in a statement.

Gwinn, the president of Alliance for HOPE International, said he understands police’s frustration with the intense scrutiny they’re under but believes “this is not a time to declare war on domestic violence agencies."

“This is the time for law enforcement to lean into the conversation on how we can do better,” he said.

“Saying you lose your money if you support this,” he added, “or you don’t get our engagement anymore if you say this — that just breaks my heart.”

Amen brother. They’re not just murders. They’re also rapists, and some of the most immoral people you will find on the planet.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Fed up with white people calling 911 about people of color selling water bottles, barbecuing or otherwise going about their lives, San Francisco leaders are set to approve hate crime legislation giving the targets of those calls the ability to sue the caller.

The Board of Supervisors will vote Tuesday on the Caution Against Racial and Exploitative Non-Emergencies Act, also known as the CAREN legislation. It’s a nod to a popular meme using the name “Karen” to describe an entitled white woman whose actions stem from her privilege, such as using police to target people of color.

All 11 supervisors have signed on to the legislation, guaranteeing it will pass, despite some criticism that the name is sexist and divisive. It comes amid a national reckoning on race compelled by the police killings of Black Americans and instances where white people called for officers to investigate people of color.

In May, Amy Cooper, a white woman, called 911 from Manhattan’s Central Park, falsely claiming that a Black man — who had politely asked her to leash her dog — was threatening her. She’s been charged with filing a false police report.

In San Francisco, a white couple was criticized on social media after video was widely shared of them questioning a Filipino American stenciling “Black Lives Matter” on a retaining wall in front of his home in June. They later called police.

James Juanillo said he chose yellow chalk to match the color of the house. When the couple approached him, they repeatedly demanded to know if it was his home because he was defacing private property.

“They tried to cast it as a criminal scene,” he said. “It was me calmly applying chalk, not spray paint, not in the middle of the night but very deliberately. The only thing that was missing was a pinot grigio.”

Supervisor Shamann Walton, who introduced the legislation and is Black, said, “911 calls and emergency reports are not customer service lines for racist behavior. ... People of color have the right to do everyday activities and should not be subject to being harassed due to someone’s racial bias.”

Supporters of the legislation say it is crushing to be confronted by police because someone saw you as a threat, possibly as a criminal or as not belonging. It’s especially terrifying for Black people, whose encounters with police could end in violence.

“This is not hyperbole,” said Brittni Chicuata, chief of staff for San Francisco’s Human Rights Commission. “This is an established pattern reflected in the disparate treatment of Black people and other people of color in our city and in our country.”

Other places have moved to make placing racist 911 calls a hate crime. California’s governor recently signed a measure making the crime a misdemeanor punishable by jail time and a fine. New York approved legislation allowing the victims of racist 911 calls to sue.

The San Francisco legislation gives people the right to sue a 911 caller in civil court, and supporters hope it will make some think twice before turning to police. The discrimination need not be only racial; it can also be due to the person’s sex, age, religion, disability, gender identity, weight or height.

The legislation does not spell out the standards needed to sue but notes that qualifying calls are those that caused the person to feel harassed or embarrassed; damaged the person’s reputation or business prospects; or forced the person from an area where they had a lawful right to be.

The board has received written complaints from eight people — several whose names have different spellings of Karen — saying they support the legislation but object to its moniker, which they call sexist and ageist.

Vic Vicari wrote that the insensitive use of the name “as a general purpose term of disapproval for middle age white women needs to stop.” Carynn Silva said she loves the name her mom gave her and called it a racist term against white women. Caren Batides asked if the supervisor would want his name mocked.

“Yes, I am named Karen, and I do speak up for injustices on a regular occasion,” wrote Karen Shane. “So could we attempt at coming up with some other acronym that doesn’t vilify a whole group of people named Karen/Caryn/Caren?”

Reached by phone, Shane, who lives in a San Francisco Bay Area suburb and describes herself as a middle-aged white woman, readily pokes fun at her first name and said she’s aware that even complaining about it is something that a “Karen” would do. But she feels the supervisor didn’t need to cheapen what she agrees is important legislation.

“By using the name CAREN, he’s just perpetuating a racial divide,” she said. “Granted it’s not a protected class, but it’s somebody’s name.”

Walton has dismissed the concerns, saying the legislation does not refer to any individual.

I wish there was not the commentary, sorry about this guy not allowing the video to just play.

But you can see the person is clearly triggered by the propaganda that is being pushed about 'Black Lives Matter'.

Right on, I just figured it may be worthwhile to understand that the propaganda you are seeing about the 'BLM' movement is designed to make you think that what you had said was the reality, and it is not.

I DO NOT SUPPORT ALM OR BLM. ALM is just plain stupid but BLM is a good idea (hence I said Idea) i don't support the movement at all simply because of they ways they 'protest'/riot and the BLM organization literally said that they were trained marxists-leninists plus the leader of the organization used $200k from the donations to spend on himself.BLM hasn't even done anything for Black Lives aswell all they have done is try to make a white saviour complex within society and try to force radical-liberalism on the USA. During some of the riots they literally said "Death to all white people." just think are you seriously ok with this?
