Black Lives Matter: All About Black Men?

Hey folks, I'm back from my break from the Org and thought I'd post a question.

Do you all find that Black Lives Matter is mostly concerned about black men more than black women? I saw a clip once of comedian DL Highly being interviewed and he said black women in America were "fine" but not black men... discuss

No, I don’t find that true at all. You have to remember that there are various BLM groups all over the country, so it would be wrong to assume they only have their interests and concerns centered on Black men rather than the Black community as a whole. He also don’t agree with DL Hughle seeing how many Black women experience racial profiling as Black men, among other similar, negative experiences in this country.
To the Latino, Black American and Caribbean communities in America. You are the communities trump dislikes and degrades. Use your vote to vote trump out of office.

I do not think there is a distinction. The issue is who seems to get killed more? Most of the highly publicized cased were black males being killed. But Black woman also die.


And I assume that the movement is not meant to be at the expense of any other group despite some using that banner as such.

So, I would say it may have been motivated by the killings of Black Males (Mike Brown being one) it doesn't seem to be gender exclusive.

That has zero to do with this topic. Please stay on topic.

Sounds like the same cycle as the book But Some of Us are Brave..., back in 1982. I've seen someplaces on the net that feel very strongly this is true. Personally, I don't know. I have a very unpopular opinion that a segment is dominated by the adrenaline junkies, which is sad, but it happens to all groups. It's just a matter of whether that segment gets all the public attention while the other segments get pushed in the shadows.

Well yeah it seems to me that with rare exception, black women's abuse doesn't get a fraction of what black men get in these cases. The fact that women founded an organization that (to me) became cause celebre of patriarchal types is painfully ironic.

Do you know of cases where women have been overlooked?

Hey thanks!! But feel free to chime in, It's good to get different perspectives.

Someone asked about when black women are overlooked but it seems like the media only covers stuff that happens to black men. Even Millenial black men seem to have an expectation of support from black women that doesn't seem reciprocated...

No, I don’t find that true at all. You have to remember that there are various BLM groups all over the country, so it would be wrong to assume they only have their interests and concerns centered on Black men rather than the Black community as a whole. He also don’t agree with DL Hughle seeing how many Black women experience racial profiling as Black men, among other similar, negative experiences in this country.

Agreed. I have no idea what DL was thinking. If you want to hear it for yourself, look up his appearance on Bill Maher from this past August. I'd post it but forgot how to post YouTube videos lol smile
