        The idea that the lives of African American people matter in society is a true statement. However, BLM as an organization has some internal corruptions, violent groups, and oppressive acts towards other races. Racism does not specifically apply to the White population, any race can be considered having negative, even as far as racist ideologies. While Black Lives Matter is not necessarily racist, pushing African Americans to the top of the "Racial Totem Pole" has the result of forcing other races below it. This can be seen after the abolition of slavery, where the White race was granting itself more authority to control and overcome the other races. Ultimately, I do believe that black lives do matter, but I do not agree with the core values of the organization.

          @uahj "However, BLM as an organization has some internal corruptions, violent groups, and oppressive acts towards other races."

          Citation needed.

          "While Black Lives Matter is not necessarily racist, pushing African Americans to the top of the "Racial Totem Pole" has the result of forcing other races below it."

          Good thing that's not actually what BLM is about. This is a lie spread by white supremacist, ie.e. the people who ACTUALLY put their race at the top of a totem pole. BLM is about being sick and tired of not being treated EQUALLY. It's about police violence. It's about racial disparity in sentencing. It's about how a white man carrying more guns than the Terminator can blow people up and still be brought in alive, while unarmed Black men get whole clips emptied into them because they were "tall for their age" or had a cell phone, or a soda can.

          "Ultimately, I do believe that black lives do matter, but I do not agree with the core values of the organization."

          Considering that top among those core values is that police should not abuse their power if you disagree with that, that makes you a fascist. Period. You are effectively endorsing police brutality with that awful comment. You are arguing in favor of people who shoot men in the back then plant their own stun gun on them. You are in favor of murdering a child and getting away with it despite video evidence showing the cop lied about how much time past between his squad car rolling up and him opening fire. You are in favor of choking a man to death for selling loose cigarettes. You are in favor of people who pressure sex workers into sleeping with them before arresting them for "solicitation." You are in favor of people who steal from suspects who haven't even been charged with a crime, who shoot dogs out of spite, who share racist memes on Facebook, and charge men beaten by whtie saupremacists with assault despite being the victim of assault (at least until they get shamed into dropping those charges by the media).
