Too many people are hooked by emotionalism. As some have commented, Black Lives Matter is a Marxist group. There are black people being killed by blacks and they ignore it. Their purpose is to get rid of the police and promote rage and chaos, not lift up their people. Recently their website was changed from bluntly proclaiming their Marixst and Communist platform to eliminating that, and now there are glowing bios of the three women founders. If you go to donate, it shows you that money is actually going to ActBlu not BLM. If you go to the ActBlu civics page and ActBlue financial reports, the money is being directly diverted to far left liberal organizations and candidates. See for yourself how easy it is to get snookered. We are too easy swayed by flattery and sad stories.

This so comes to the heart of every issue -- the only lasting answer that has the power to heal and strengthen and unify us individually and collectively. May all that is happening aid us to humbly seek and draw upon that most cherished blessing.

You do know that BLM is a marxist organization and their platform includes destruction of the family. I ask the same question as others: If black lives matter, then why isn't anyone protesting the innocent black lives in Chicago, Detroit, and New York that are being taken? The statement "Black Lives Matter" is absolutely true. But then so is the statement "All Lives Matter".

Plain and simple: only two races exist, good people and bad people, and only the Lord can change the nature of those who are willing.

I agree completely w this perspective. Thank you for sharing this.

This article was like a breath of fresh air to me. Finally an answer to racism that I can support. I became curious about Black Lives Matter and, asl often, took it to Google. I opened the Black Lives Matter Utah site and learned that this organization is not affiliated with the National Black LIves Matter group, and does not support all of the extreme positions taken by the National Black LIves Matter organization. They focus on eliminating police brutality and racial targeting through police training, body cams, and other enforceable means. They work to eliminate discriminatory practices in the workplace such as unequal pay and discriminatory hiring practices. lI seems to be focused on meaningful reform working within social and legal systems.

I am a Black saint who believes black lives matter. I agree with Issacs. How do I show it? I show it by serving a second mission with my husband in Jamaica. I show it by living as the Savior would have me. I do not believe in violence and destroying property, wrong is wrong. May we all live in a manner that exemplifies the teachings of Jesus Christ. May we all love one another and find a way to show it and respect our brothers and sisters. We are all children of God.

Absolutely true and consistent with the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. The sad part of this whole thing is that not all will see the problem as the heart of man (the natural man), nor see the solution as Jesus Christ. They will be blinded by the cunning arguments and lack logic spouted out by loud voices.

I think Isaac hit the problem square on the head. To live a Christlike is truly the best and only answer to the world’s problems. What a place to live if we all would follow a Christlike life. I’mTolerance patience kindness niceto each other Brotherly love caring service would replace violence and hate. Martin Luther King “Returning violence For violence multiplies violence,adding deeper and deeper darkness to a night devoid of stars.Darkness cannot drive out darkness only light can do that Hate cannot drive out hate only love can do that “. We all need to practice being kind and thoughtful

I read this article with some judicious circumstance. I agree that Black Lives matter, but I do not support the radicalized Black Lives Movement. As a Christian, all lives are important and precious unto God. As an American, I believe that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." The Black Live Movement is run by trained Marxists teaching Liberation Theology. They teach that there must be a "collective salvation" before any "individual salvation." I believe that there is but ONE salvation and that is through Christ Jesus. IF I would accept that there must first be a "collective salvation" before any "individual salvation" then I would be denying the Christ and become an anti-Christ. I will NOT deny that Jesus Christ is my personal savior. Period.
