Black Lives Matter

I certainly support the goal of Black Lives Matter to stop the police shootings of black citizens, however, the organisation has behaved abominably. I think it should be sued out of existence. It hijacked the gay pride parade and would not let it continue until the gay pride people promised not to allow police to participate in the parade. Their complaint with the police has nothing to do with gay pride. It is pure extortion. They pulled a similar stunt on the Caribbean parade.

By analogy, they would be invited to Thanksgiving Dinner, then demand that some of the guests leave. They are guests. They have no right to determine who is welcome and who is not. If they don’t like the other guests, they should leave and host their own dinner.
