"Black Lives Matter will shortly be history, like the age of Obama that empowered it, as it falls by the weight of its own contradictions and hypocrisies."

The most abject racist could not have invented a more effective way to achieve racial polarization than the many current manifestations of the “Black Lives Matter” movement. Did a racist think up the movement’s absurdities: its criticism of “All Lives Matter,” the implicit encouragement of violence against the police who alone battle barbarity in the inner city, the constant whine about white privilege that is sloppily addressed and often reverberated by whites who enjoy it against other whites who do not, the cynical use of the movement by black elites whose privileges sometimes derive from the disparities of the underclass — and the reluctance to discuss and address the epidemic of inordinate black illegitimacy, crime, drug use, rap vulgarity, social service dependence, and the romance of the violent cult of the male, all of whose assuagement could lead to parity?
Huh. Seems like somebody else made this point a while ago.
"And when you put it terms of 'Black lives matter,' that implies that white lives, and Asian lives, and Eskimo lives, and every other kind of lives don't matter. So we get the feeling that if this is all about some sort of race test that we can't hope to pass to your satisfaction because of who we are, not how we act, then screw you buddy, we're not gonna play that game. So the rest of us get the feeling that if our lives don't matter then why the hell should we care if you think 'black lives matter?' And it's just a little ways from there for the rest of us to conclude that black lives DON'T matter either."
"That's right," said one of the black ladies softly.
"So if you wanted a slogan that the Klan could understand and use to recruit with, well, brother, that's it. So that slogan is either the worst kind of stupidity or the bastard who thought it up is trying to separate you from your natural allies or get you killed, or both. I can't think of another slogan more calculated to get an American Hitler elected, and I HATE Nazis."

It's not a coincidence the "national rhetoric" calling for "dead cops" is occurring on Obama's watch... #BlueLivesMatter

The only live that matters to me is one that respects itself and others. If you have so little respect for yourself and others that you feel justified in committing violent acts on others for no other reason than fun or perceived "racism", if you live your life like an animal with rabies, then your life means less than shit to me.

My ammo is colorblind. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

The most important thing to understand about #BlackLivesMatter isn't the lack of internal logic or real-world utility, the inane details which illustrate the nonsensical fundamentals of the movement, or even the life-cycle of the movement before it is overwhelmed by resistance to it's patent absurdities.

The important thing to understand is that #BlackLivesMatter was explicitly designed to be as ridiculous and obnoxious as possible, so as to serve as the seed of a Hegelian dialectic thesis/antithesis/synthesis strategy for advancing a new version of 'moderate' policing in which overwhelming force and constant surveillance are accepted as necessary but placed "under control" by vastly increased Federal oversight and coordination. In other words, the point is to craft a narrative in which the problems arising from militarization of the police are the fault of not enough centralized authority and funding, rather than because of the militarization of the police.
