    The Watchman,

    Exactly, less than 1% of the white population is a nonstarter.

    Still has nothing to do with the BLM movement. Now you are two-for-two in the wrong department.

    Wanna go for a hat trick?

    The best part about these articles is the people discussing the topic are African Americans telling YOU that this was a lie.

    You far left wing radicals don't let facts get in your way

    shouldn't the focus here be on a fellow human being being killed instead of bashing BLM?

    The Watchman,

    you read too much into my post. I was simply pointing out the irony.

    Except that nothing in the article indicates that he didn't matter to other black lives.

    Was the irony that you sounded like you were making a point, but in fact were expressing the opposite of that?

    irony
    n. The use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning.
    n. An expression or utterance marked by a deliberate contrast between apparent and intended meaning.
    n. A literary style employing such contrasts for humorous or rhetorical effect.

    Mr. Drone,

    When did I say it had anything to do with the BLM movement. I was simply pointing out the irony.

    I think you assumed to much. And you know when you assume, you make an ass of you, believe me....
    Thanks from LT Greenbean

    first of all, the slogan, "Hands up Don't Shoot" was just that. A slogan. Since when do slogans have to be factually accurate. Second of all, it was the Justice Department under Eric Holder that determined that witnesses were mistaken. Third of all, witness testimony is often unreliable. Finally, I find it very amusing you're arguing about what's a lie in this case. Given the fact that the narrative that BLM was started on the "Hands up Don't Shoot" slogan is a lie.

    Haha that's the biggest load of crap. They literally testified that Mike Brown had his "hands up and said don't shoot", and then was shot. That was not proven to be true. The "slogan" is from Mike Brown. I cited the sources for you to read. The BLM activists tried to say mike brown had his hands up and said don't shoot. Reality? The thug tried to kill a cop with his own weapon, and is 6 feet under where he belongs.

    Mr. Stan,

    You left out:

    a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.

    As in this guy was big into BLM, but his black life didn't matter to other black lives in the neighborhood.

    a state of affairs or an event: BLM big dog

    that seems deliberately contrary to what is expected: his life didn't matter to other black lives.
