It seems to me that when it comes to shooting by a white/hispanic policemen BLM, but they don't matter when it's comes to the terrible loss of black lives in gang violence. Whilst the police shootings are deplorable, it's such a shame that these folk can't also turn their attention to trying to sort out the gang violence problem, which is often in their own communities
White shoots Black, Black shoots Black, Black shoots White.... White shoots White....same old shameful shit.... just listen and reflect... Murder is not a Blacks Gang exclusivity!!!.

No, but itís not an interracial gang. Not in either direction. 85%of white murder victims and 93% of black victims in US were murdered by people of the same ethnicity.

I really can't think of a suitable alternative but as it's clearly not a pudding, perhaps black sausage?

It's blood sausage in the rest of the world.

Finally, after another weekend of violence, shootings and deaths in Chicago and elsewhere, an African American managed to get on tv and say that they, African Americans, should be marching in their 1000ís, in their own communities and shut them down until they can get it right.

I doubt there will be many others that would join them.

The only way to try and get a handle on the issues in those communities is for the communities themselves to finally stand up, all together, say enough, then actually deal with it, not just feel good programs and study committees.

Defunding police and slogans, pure window dressing and fund raising.

So when are the protests going to start in England over all the lives lost over the weekend by black on black shootings, or the couple of thousand deaths since 2019 until now by the same people?

Which Blacks of the Blacks lives matter most now?

That banner states little more than what should be the blindingly obvious, white lives, black lives, brown lives, yellow lives - any and all lives matter - but not just in Burnley, but everywhere. Frankly if you can have a banner that states "black lives matter" there is no earthly reason why another banner proclaiming a different hue should not be allowed.

What gets me about the story surrounding that banner flown over the football match, is that the wording of it seems to be causing outrage. If it's perfectly OK to promote the slogan "black lives matter", then it must, without question, be OK to promote slogans lkike "white lives matter", or "yellow lives matter", or whatever.

We cannot have one rule of acceptability for one race, and different rules of acceptability for others. Surely being outraged at this sign is pure, unadulterated, racism, isn't it?

Either all races are equal (something I firmly believe in, always have done) or they are not.

Seriously? You really don't see any problem with it? Can you not see it's like your neighbour saying "all houses matter" or "my house too!" when the fire brigade turns up at your house that is on fire.

When the only world you know is on social media and you have no critical thinking abilities, why is this a surprise? I am also baffled about what I need to do in my life to comply with this messaging.

Should I treat my friend or colleagues, whatever, colour they are, differently from now? I actually don't even remember what colours they are, they are just friends or colleagues..

It's not about colour, its about ignorance and stupidity and until they are made crimes we will continue to see banners and stupid slogans.

The point I was trying to make is that all lives matter, perhaps I didn't make it clear enough. There are white people in sections of the UK population who also suffer discrimination and hate speech, similarly people from the Far East. In the UK we don't, thank heavens, have a police force that is all too ready to resort to firearms, and seemingly disproportionately towards the black population, that has recently once again been highlighted as a US problem that requires a US solution.

The Blackpool company that flew yesterday evening's banner did reportedly also fly a similar "Black Lives Matter" banner a few days ago.

The uproar about this banner is because only white people are racist...

Totally and utterly agree, either you allow them all or you ban them all.

I believe that was written tongue in cheek; I hope so, because in reality being racist runs through the human psyche, I've met Asians who express racist attitudes towards white Europeans, and I'm sure that you'll find the same kinds of attitudes displayed among Afro-Caribbeans, Chinese, Japanese at some level toward others who are "different" through language, colour of skin or religion, thankfully usually fairly low level and attitudes that are not violent. It is probably just a tribal thing.

You can normally spot a low level racist when they start a statement with "I'm not racist, but......"

Definately not true, Racism comes in many forms against many religions and colours. Go look at India and Pakistan, indeed look at India and its caste system.
