‘Black Lives Matter’—a Year From Now

In the post-civil rights era of the last half-century, a number of black triumphalist slogans and movements have come and gone.

“Black is beautiful” was an informal self-help attitude that sought to encourage blacks not to emulate so-called arbitrary constructs of white majority aesthetics, but instead to rediscover a natural black essence — from Afros to Ebonics and Kwanzaa — that need not be discouraged.

    Back in the civil rights movement the goal was to unit all and become one but blm they seem to want to set the black movement back 50 years.

    • Easily as the lies are so transparent.

        I find this sad what the great leaders did in the 50’s and now this young punks are trying to undo all of it.

          The civil rights movement was based on a lie and was a tragic mistake.
          If what I am saying sounds too extreme, just wait five to ten years and it will all be mainstream thought.

            your existence is a tragic mistake, much like the existence of all your down-syndrome afflicted children.

      When they adopted the slogan “Burn, baby Burn” they lost all credibility, and they still haven’t gotten any back.

        If she got a bit part on the Walking Dead she wouldn’t even need makeup.

    I think ebonics should be discouraged; it’s not a language it’s slang and teaching kids that as their primary language will disadvantage them in college, university and the job market. I know when I review resumes the ones written in bad grammar and any usage of slang or text speak in a cover letter is an automatic filling in the circular file.

      I tell my kids not to talk ghetto.
      At work, when someone says webegone I say we don’t talk that ghetto talk here.

    Sorry VDH, but your brand of half-measures are indeed part of the problem.
    Kwanza, Ebonics, “black hair”, and general black anti-social criminality are ALL expressions of being Anti-White.
    No VDH, black is anything BUT beautiful.
    Black is never beautiful and that intentional false-thinking built upon lies designed to make some inferiors feel better will never have a place in a modern and just society.
    It’s a lie!

    I agree that this “black lives matter” slogan will fade as well, but the general tone of the article seems to be saying we therefore shouldn’t worry or fight about it, and on that I have to disagree. As the author writes, it will be replaced soon enough with something else. The more minor skirmishes these people are allowed to win, the more empowered they feel and push even further. They need to be fought at every turn (while not losing sight of the big picture). It’s like Adam Carolla’s bit on NRA and smokers.

    Black Lives Still Don’t Matter, as long as most blacks don’t care about blacks killing blacks. White people who say black lives matter are just as bad since they’re support is mostly for show.
