It's a slogan a movement, an organisation.

At its heart it was a lot of fed up people protesting against police brutality. There was way too frequent footage of black Americans being horrifically murdered by police. It was organic, it spread worldwide, sports people got on board if they chose too, most did.
So you support what you thought it originally meant, but now you oppose it because you don't think it has any meaning?

To be honest, I don't think you even have more than a basic media understanding of what it stood for.
And your opposition to it is just as influenced by media and your lack of understanding.

If you think the main 'blm' movement in Australia was based on some meaningless organisation in the US, you've no actual idea of what really happened.
You've also spent no time trying to educate yourself.
You're just being taken advantage of.

I'm sorry if that sounds offensive. But let ignore offense and get into some depth and discuss the problems.

Yeah, too much Sky News and Murdoch media for me, basically lobotomised.

Maybe I know something you don't.
I asked why you called another poster a paedophile, and you doubled down with more vile bullshit...

It was left over from the most offensive thing I've ever typed on this forum, which I decided against posting. As you wish, I'll remove it.
Instinctively 'fu** you'... you're not the victim.
You're the one that should either state they were wrong for their repeated allegations, or provide evidence for the repeated allegation.



Would you like to address any of my observations on BLM?
WHY is any connection to BLM in Australia, bad?

I don’t need to provide evidence for anything after said poster asserted that he could read my mind.

Whether it’s “bad” is in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it?

“Disrupt the nuclear family”, abolishing police, overt left-wing political demands etc. Some people agree with these views, some don’t. Nobody should be compelled to support them.

My contention was actually that the sport of cricket should avoid such political affiliations at all costs.
