  1. The similarities between BLM and the various social media movements of the Arab Spring have a lot of similarities. BLM propagates a completely false perception of crime, race and police violence, one that justifies violence in return against whites and against police.

    • That’s intellectually dishonest, I have never ever heard a BLM speaker incite to violence, this is a false blame, they only want equal rights for black and minority folks. Black lives matter is, basically black lives matter too.

  2. No racial inequality here in Texas. All inequality is social. The inequality is between Trump and Clinton in their pace for presidency is something we can see and discuss. The inequality of blacks is all about black’s set of mind. Yes, i would hate to see blacks in my neighborhood. Why? Because their kids are unfriendly and aggressive against white kids. That is the result of black set of mind in black families and crowds. My doughtier was initially critical to my stance but ones she got in black trouble, she changed her mind. My son was as a kid insulted by blacks, so he is even more ‘racist’ than myself.

    • BLM is a racist organization with much of its FUNDING comes from G.Soros, a billionaire who desires to bring down America and the West.
      I notice BLM does not care about blacks being murdered in America’s cities, 600 so far this year in Chicago alone, murdered by other blacks.

    • Correct. I married a very young girl. She was small too. Wanted her to finish school so asked her to go. After two days she refused. I asked why. She told me the black girls were beating up on the white girls. This was in 1955 in California. Obviously nothing has changed.
      American blacks are so coddled by government they know they can get away with just about anything, so they do. It has been the destruction of the civilization, nothing less.
      Only the media whines about the “poor blacks” these days.

    • My son was greatly helped by a black origin man when he had an accident so no generalised badmouting of black people from me.

      Imo and experience many, or more posiively put, at least some texans, are racist towards indians and hispanics. An important factor here is that in may poorer schooldictricts the funding, and therefore quality, of the education systems is often dubious.

      • Funding is not the problem. Baltimore and D.C. schools are at the top of the list for school funding but at the bottom for student performance. Blacks discourage ambitious blacks by telling them not to “think white.”

        Atlanta school officials went to jail for falsifying black student test scores. Blacks just can’t get a grip academically and parents don’t care about schools. Blacks fail because of their culture and resulting attitudes. Period.

        Hooray for that black gentleman who helped your son but we need to stay focused on what the majority in any group do. Blacks are heavily invested in criminality, rejection of civilized norms, and hatred of whites. But they’ll never man up and admit to their own deplorable attitudes and practices. Job number one is to blame whitey for “discrimination.” Right.

    • This is a nonsense GOP talking point without proof, blaming Soros for everything that they need to fool their supporters with. BLM is a decent group of people for the self defense of blacks.

  3. We all want social justice. I know a lot of white people and NOT one of them want Black folks to fail. NOT one white person I have known wants Black people to fail.
    When a Black person fails, the rest of society must PAY for their failure.
    We the crackercolored (which includes Asians, Latins etc) must pay for their jail time, special set aside bonuses, quota systems etc etc. as an example the ‘SAT’ scores are adjusted, minus 35 points for Asians, plus 160 points for those identifying as Blacks, and our lying liberal media calls that a level playing field!
    Lastly, I want to ask Brad Blankenship, why he holds such a racist viewpoint against non-blacks?

  4. The USA as a terrorist state must be destroyed! I hope once black people will rise and crush the Empire of Evil.The US will pay a high price for crimes against humanity around the world and this is inevitable.

    • If white America goes under, as is your fondest dream, Dark nof, you and your peeps will be back to hunting with spears and dying from easily treated diseases. Then it will be, “Why was we so stoopid to throw it all away when we had it so goooodd?”

  5. mmm. The Fadels oppose Soros’ Arab Spring in Syria and support Soros’ Black Spring in the US! I always felt that the only thing that has awakened them from the Left’s slumber is the near loss of their nation! After spending years on Ziad’s blog I feel that many Syrians are like that.

  6. The only racial inequality in the U.S. is the constant dicrimination against whites. Anyone who writes anything different is either totally ignorant of the situation or a firm believer in Soros type bullshit.

  7. I am not anti Black….rather a person who calls it like it is, since slavery ended…. many other subgroups have been persecuted in the US…further to assume black means poor…is not accurate….meanwhile traditionally Black colleges…dot the US landscape…the notion is racist itself…and they get away with it, since slavery ended…black citizens by 2019 have murdered more white people then they were slaves…lower economic black citizens abuse the system any way they can…BLM is a joke…Black citizens should have chosen a movement that poor black inner city single mothers at least have a chance to raise kids…no…they want more…they have a magazine Ebony celebrating the life of black culture….but if there were an Ivory magazine celebrating the life of white culture..it would be shut down…black America has received too much already as other minorities suffer…but that’s ok for black Americans…give me give me give me…don’t call us n****r…only to hear themselves do it…..they change rules no amount of anything will ever make them happy…and this is really the bottom 25 percent economically…75 percent live as well as any other group…reciprocity is over the day more white people were killed then were slaves…BLM is the perfect example, police are the least of their problems…but the whole country has to pause…for there overstated movement, that does not even begin to show black citizens matter…all the schools specifically for them…is proof they were treated important enough…no other race gets colleges
