I know this is kind of late but...
What should Christians' perspective on the Black Lives Matter movement be?

Do black lives matter? Yes! Is it a good name? Absolutely.
Is the most commonly know movement that calls themselves blm good? No. Unfortunately, the leaders are very corrupt.
But black lives always do matter, you can still say it loud and proud! Don’t let them discourage you.
Everyone matters. ❤️❤️

Yeah, I mean the overall idea of BLM, not the people who give it a bad name.

Who voted no?
As a black person, should I feel offended right now?
Of course we matter. We're still people no matter or skin colour or race :S

Someone's been doing their research. ;)
Unfortunately, their corruption is way worse when you dig deeper.

Wow. The poll votes are a lot closer than I thought. 4 pro-BLM and 3 anti-BLM.

Who is against BLM? I'm serious. Who doesn't think Black Lives Matter? Why are people voting no? :unsure: :dry:

Black History Month is to celebrate the rich culture and history of black people, since they are so discriminated against in so many ways. It's also a way to remind others to stop racism and treat everyone as equal, no matter their skin color. Oftentimes Black history is overlooked, especially now in the 2020s with people wanting it to not be taught in schools, so that "[white] people don't feel ashamed of their race."

They might be doing it based on the people who make the movement look bad.

Black Lives do Matter. It should be quite obvious. However, the issue is with the overly-zealous people that support and promote the cause.

I put no because I think it's stupid and idiotic to protest to make a race more important than the other. All races are equal. Not one matters and the others don't. Might as well say every race matters why only back? Tbh the majority of people are racist. Black people against white people, white people against Asian people, etc.


Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Ooh.. I didn’t know about the “wanting it not to be taught in schools” part.

I did. I’m also black. I do believe that black lives matter. But, the movement called blm, is not actually standing for black lives. They are about division and breaking down the family structure. It’s also founded by marxists and deeply spiritual, not the good type of spiritual either.

Have you heard about all the shootings and killings of black people? Have you heard of asian hate crimes? There is definitely a time and place to focus on fixing certain problems. That doesn’t make one race more important than the other.

I agree although the fact that they're marxists means nothing to me. I see that Marx got some things right, and with other things, he didn't.
If you think about it, the BLM Movement contradicts biblical principles. In fact, some of the things these protesters and supporters have done can be considered racist.

I didn't say it makes a race more or less important then the other. I just think the protesting is idiotic.

I never really thought of that...but I don't think that's usually the case.

Ok, so let's say it isn't the case. But saying #blacklivesmatter isn't the same as saying "black people matter more than white people."

I wanna know, which do you hear more? Black people experiencing racism or White People experiencing racism?
Which do you think they're gonna promote more? Black Lives Matter or White Lives Matter?
No, I'm not being racist. We are all people but if you see one race being discriminated against more than the other, it's going to be promoted more that their lives matter than the other race. I bet you my last dime that if White people were experiencing more racism than black people the #blacklivesmatter would be #whitelivesmatter and the problem would be the same.

Anyways, it all comes down to, everyone is equal, no matter their skin colour, race, background because we're all equal at the foot of the cross.
