"Black Lives Matter"is a terrible 
phrase. 

There are many that would be better. It is polarizing, non-inclusive, 
excluding, limiting, lacking in pride/integrity, pity-begging, subservient, speaks to lower self-esteem, harmful to young psyches. It begs condescension. It is "weak". Basically, it is a bad way to frame the issue--and even, I suspect, many in other organizations(NAACP) have tried to put the damn thing to rest. 

The conflict-seeking media--in conjunction with the trio of women who coined the phrase... who've expressed motives BEYOND cops killing folks as their initial hope(immigration)... have conspired(possibly inadvertently) to promote this thing along at the 
expense of folks in misery, looking for ANYTHING to help their situation. 

Fact is, the phrase has done more harm than good. Think about 
this--it's effect is max polarizing/alienating when chaos, murder, conflict is at its highest. 

I challenge other organizations to supplant the BLM bad idea with 
something better-conceived to address the issue. 

There is a HUGE problem, no question. 'Been going on for years. 
But BLM is NOT the best solution. It is a badly conceived idea. 
There are far better, MORE EFFECTIVE ways to frame the issue.

NOTHING BETTER THAN A GOOD COP.  NOTHING WORSE THAN A BAD ONE. MOST ARE NOT THE CLOWN PORTRAYED, ABOVE.  A BETTER JOB MUST BE DONE TO WEED OUT THE INCOMPETENT WHO SNEAK IN, GET BADGES AND GUNS, BUT WHO ARE NOT POLICE MATERIAL. 

SOLUTION: PAY COPS A LOT MORE, DEMAND MORE OF THEM.  ATTRACT THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST--
AND HOLD THEM TO THE HIGHEST STANDARD.  'WON'T NEED AS MANY.  SUB-STANDARD WANNA BE'S MAKE 
LIFE DANGEROUS FOR THE COMMUNITY AND DANGEROUS FOR "REAL" POLICE OFFICERS.

                                               "FENCES" and "ALMOST CHRISTMAS"

Saw 2 excellent Native Black American movies this week that spoke to generations-deep
Black American Legacy in a nuanced, refreshing way.  FENCES and ALMOST CHRISTMAS.  
"FENCES" captures a time and place, perfectly.  Being from a very small Western Pennsylvania 
town not too far from Pittsburgh, I can testify that Denzel and excellent cast nailed it 
with their portrayals of August Wilson's "folks" from his monumental theatrical achievement. 
Possibly should have been BEST PICTURE instead of the one that was; certainly Denzel 
was, hands-down, BEST ACTOR.  
 Not even close.

And on ALMOST CHRISTMAS?!  Wow!  Had it all.  Comedy, drama, deeper meaning, "legacy"
--and a fantastic cast giving first-rate performances all-around.  

Thank you.  We needed that...
