Has attempted to co opt, Black Lives Matter, into standoff, over which side one is on. This is really reckless retorhic to pit one against each other. It's no accident that law enforcement vs young men of color, is the choice.

It's either okay with you that, cops are allowed to shoot you with your hands up, your back turned and running, holding anything, already down, etc or you don't value blue lives.

Trayvon Martin, is my hero, in this war on kids by LE.
Zimmerman was allowed to be cast in an authority role and to get away with murder. It has snowballed ever since. With us or agaist us? Who is this other IF they dont mean POC?

See if that doesn't give you some sense of your white privilege?
