I can't remember the exact topic but I think a few people predicted the same thing - that the BLM movement would cause an increase in violent deaths of young black men, ultimately doing more harm than good.
And so it has: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41391333
An 8.6% rise in the homicide rate is pretty appalling by any standard unless it started at very low levels, which we know it didn't.
This is why I object to movements based on false premises and invented media lies / selective coverage. The people who suffer the most are not the ones marching in the streets. This is a mess that was invented and promoted by the media and the Obama administration. It's now being perpetuated in the form of the ridiculous "don't stand for the anthem" protests in the NFL.
The fact is, as it always has been, that the police are not the biggest threat to the black community as some like to make out. It's going to be a hard truth to admit.
There is simply no solution now. BLM will not step down and say "oh, we were wrong and stupid" and the police cannot clear up the mess by hugging it better. What will be needed? A clampdown on those committing crime. Which means they finally get the narrative they wanted - more black people incarcerated. Maybe that was the point?
