Chris Maverick But that is not what we are arguing. We are not arguing whether or not Black lives actually matter. You presented their premise as the reason for your assessment that they are “good”.

No?

” the base ideology is “please don’t kill us, mmkay?”

I made a counter argument. Saying they were bad because of the effects their movement has had. Based on the premise that.

“you are not being killed/hunted any more than anyone else”

These things are not actually mutually exclusive. As your reasoning for them being “good” is based on the idea that not wanting to be killed by police is good. My reasoning, that basing a movement on such a divisive subject, especially when it is not supported by the actual number of people being killed, is also true.

Isn’t that kind of the point of this type of argument?
