What Black Lives Matter means to me

No, this is not a valid statistical study. But watch:

By the way, they had the wrong guy. Yes, this is a different police force..but..

And listen to a conservative Republican:

So, what does Black Lives Matter mean to me?

It does not mean that I embrace “critical race theory”, Marxism or other theories that a BLM website might have or that others might espose.
It does not mean that I approve of everything that someone with BLM chants at a protest.
It does not mean that I approve of rioting or looting.
It does not mean that I approve of things like this:

It does not mean that I deny that there are Black criminals.
It does not mean that I think that some who are arrested behave badly or foolishly.
It does not mean that I dislike the police. I like the police, in general.

It means that I think, statistically speaking, Black people are treated worse that non-black people in the same situation and I think that is unjust.

Let’s have a more fair, more just society. Let every citizen be judged by their own actions.

And, it sure appears that Black lives are not as valued by society as non-black lives.
