I don't even bother discussing it with them.

If you're naive enough to be tricked into buying the BLM narrative, there's really nothing I can argue from an educated position that will get through to you.

I can sympathize with the general feeling that black peoples lives don't seem to matter. Black people experience a different America than white people. However, that doesn't give anyone any justification of violence. The fact that people don't seem to realize that BLM movement is about violence is what keeps them trapped supporting the movement. In otherwords, I agree with the premise of BLM. However, I completely disagree with everything else about the organization.

Play ignorant.

"Isn't that the group that shot all those cops?"

"I thought blacks killed more of their own than whites, why are they so mad at whites?"

"It seems more like domestic terrorism to me. Makes me scared to be around them when they are stabbing innocents."

Don't be friends with people who support BLM. Anyone who gets all their news from Facebook and Buzzfeed is scum.

Yea but then you're just as bad as the people who cut you off for not liking BLM. Sometimes those people can be family members or childhood friends, those people aren't worth losing over something as dumb as BLM

BLM is just the excuse for the mindset. If you're stupid and gullible enough to argue family members over this nonsense, to ruin familial ties, then those ties weren't very strong to begin with.

I've got family members that are True Blue Retard Hillary supporters. For no other reason than "cuz vagina." I haven't yet sent out my ribbon-tied parchment paper, hand scrawled and wax sealed letters of rejection from my familial empire quite yet, but I certainly don't take anything they say about politics, race, religion or the weather with any sincerity or seriousness whatsoever.

Like, at this point, it's like having a talking dog that's not very smart. It was frustrating at a point, trying to get this stupid talking mutt to see things correctly or at least amicably, but at a certain point you just have to realize the dog's not very smart, despite being able to talk. So now whenever it talks, whatever, that's just my stupid talking dog, don't listen to it, it thinks it's smart like people.

Wrong. Anyone who gets all their news from Facebook and Buzzfeed is a fucking dumbass, and nothing of value will be lost when you cut those types of people out of your friendship circle. I stand by my statement.

The difference being that BLM is a terrorist organization in everything but name. That's like saying "You're just as bad as people that cut you off for not liking ISIS".

BLM extremists and their sympathizers deserve no pity, only scorn.

...or introduce them to sources of news other than Facebook, TV news, buzzfeed etc

It's a fact that most will choose comfortable lies over the truth, and it's probably best to limit your exposure to people in that state. But you have to at least offer them the red pill.

I'm just guessing here as people see what they want to see and believe what they want to believe.

Try with pointing out the language. When language is not clear, it leaves room for all sorts of interpretations. If "White Lives Matter" could be seen as anything other than all lives matter then so can "Black Lives Matter". Unless all races are expected to give special treatment to the black community because they are black, which is racist. The unclear language can also be used to fuel racism and has in my opinion. How would an already racist black man view the phrase "black lives matter"? The same as a white racist man would view "white lives matter". The emphasis is put on the race and that race is the one that matters.

Good luck, no one likes to be wrong. Especially in public.

If it is implied then why not hold a sign that says "white lives matter"? Would that be okay at a protest?

How do you respond when one of your friends expressed support for Feminism? Or for communism?

The thing to remember, they don't actually support those... movements. They support what they think those movements are. They are probably still very close to you in actual opinions, they just give it a different (and wrong) name and different (wrong) facts.

Like I'm sure most of your friends who claim to be feminists are actually for equality, both ways, and believe that you can have PIV sex without affirmative consent on every single step, even if both sides had a couple of drinks, without it being rape... I assume most of your BLM friends are against shooting unarmed innocent people of any race, but understand the shooting of armed attackers of any race.


So there's no need to explain or respond to anything. They will find out on their own in due time. The great thing about regressive leftism... is that it's all connected. Once they get redpilled in any one regressive-left lie (say, a GF hits them and they get blamed, or they see what Islam is doing, or they find out how stupid anti-animal experiment people are....), then it all comes crumbling down together.

Basically, you only need one red pill to be red-pilled for all of the regressive left. It'll happen. Just make sure you're still there when it happens to them.

Well, technically the post title is open to interpretation and it could have been used ironically or in a degrading sense.
