I say "silent" as in not drawing attention from individual acts of brashness and verbal hate. The majority is expressing themselves with actions, thus the peaceful protests. People outside of the movement are not commonly informed of the protests that went by without any incidents, but of those with detrimental effects. Its common practice for anyone who distributes information, the unlikely is more interesting and oeople look for that. It's like the feminist movement, an idea that simply wants to promote awareness for the troubles of a group of people becomes distorted by loud, obnoxious, and selfish individuals who seek to be better than others, rather that establish a level of equality. The fight against racial discrimination and feminism hold many similarities, with the most observable constant being that the latest generation of the respective movements (the BLM Movement and Third-Wave Feminism) having prople who push their own selfish agenda under the label of such movements. The BLM Movement is doing its job, it's just unfortunate thatthis site gravitates towards mostly negative events related to BLM.

also, thanks for being respectful and discussing this issue with maturity, most people on this site dismiss my view of this situation as retarded or , ironically, misinformed.

From what you're saying and others have said this sounds largely like the issue GG had. However Unlike GG the damage these people are doing is observable, examples can be given that aren't obvious trolls, and the movement 'seems to be based entirely on imaginary beliefs brought on by personal, biased, perceptions.

But this leaves one last thing in my mind, If I discuss GG what ends the Argument is that despite peoples views on it, its successes are provable and undeniable. So I suppose what I'm asking for is a list of BLM Successes. In order to at least redeem the overall movement to the point of being more open minded towards its 'silent' majority.

Although I admit that the BLM has had large portions of its members engage in hostile protests, we cannot overlook the silent majority that promote peace and awareness for dicrimination not racism of black people, who as well represent the BLM Movement's true goal. Don't let the misinformed people who twist the goal of the movement towards hating cops mask the true intentions of the BLM Movement, to create a more positive image for the black community. It's a shame that some still don't understand what this movement is about and recklessly make it harder for those with good intentions.

a silent majority in an activist group might as well be a non existent group. the point of activism is to draw attention.
