Description

Organizations such as the National Urban League, Black Panther Party, NAACP, ColorofChange.org, Southern Coalition for Social Justice, and many others strive to promote social, political, and economic justice. A very current movement named "Black Lives Matter" has stirred up a lot of controversy, giving rise to a backlash of people who assumed that Black Lives Matter was about being Anti-white. In return, the All Lives Matter Movement came about and attracted some white supremacists. Around the time that BLM and ALM were created, there continued to be mayhem, not only between minority and majority groups, but also violence between law enforcement and minority groups. The street war between law enforcement and minority groups inspired others to cleverly create Blue Lives Matter, in vocal support of the lives of law enforcement officers. This created a triadic relationship among these movements to be explored in this presentation.
