Is The Group Black Lives Matter A Racist Organization?


TEXAS - More than a few Texans are convinced that the organization named "Black Lives Matter" is a racist organization. The title in and of itself seems to promote one race of people over another and from what I was taught that is a sign of classic racism. If someone started a group called "White Lives Matter" they would certainly be told they were racist, so what's the difference? It's sad to see what has happened in our country over the years. Rather than us moving toward a color-blind society where content of character is judged rather than race and/or religious affiliation, groups like "Black Lives Matter" seem to be working hard to divide rather than to unite the people of Texas and the United States. Sadly, there are too many organizations in the world today using the anger and bitterness of Americans to promote their political agenda. That is why "All Lives Matter" is the slogan everyone should embrace.

Bush smiled, swayed and moved his arms up and down while holding the hands of wife Laura Bush and first lady Michelle Obama during the Dallas Police Choir’s rendition of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” At one point he said something to Michelle Obama, who smiled and laughed. Video of Bush at the event has sparked a strong reaction online. Some criticize Bush’s behavior as inappropriate given the solemn occasion. Others are using the moment to post videos of Bush dancing awkwardly in the past.
