Is there a such
thing as white
flight?

Social media
plays a huge
role in the
important of
the BLM
movement
Is the BLM
movement a
movement with
prosperity?

Does
#BlackLivesM
atter and
#AllLivesMatte
r stand for the
same thing?

Big-named
AfricanAmerican
figures should
be more vocal
about the
BLM
movement
AfricanAmericans
need to stop
accepting
these
stereotypes

Does the fear


of the black
man cause
racial injustice?

We need to
remove the
fear from
white people
alongside
officers so
justice can be
set in place.

Is oppression
and police
brutality the
same as slavery
and Jim crow
laws?

Blackaphobia
cause whites
and officers to
fear AfricanAmericans

Does Jim Crow


still exist?

Is racial profiling
acceptable based
off a few
members of a
certain race?
Is it fair that the
officers do not
receive the
punishment they
deserve?

Does the BLM


movement
cause the war
on cops?
The war on
drugs is
another form of
racial injustice.

A spirit of
conciliation
needs to occur
to stop the
violence.
The war on drugs
breaks apart
many families
and causes
poverty in the
African American
community

The countys
experience also
suggests that
racism is
entrenched in
the structure of
policing, and
that it is highly
resistant to
change due to
its functionality
in the broader
national
socioeconomic
system
BLM is
responsible for
the senseless
crimes being
committed.
The court
system needs
punish more
serious crimes
rather than
these types.

The BLM
movement
would not exist
without social
media

The variety of
local
campaigns
associated with
Black Lives
Matter
confounds
attempts to
portray the
movement in
fine detail

Any large
social
movement is
shaped by the
technology
available to it
and tailors its
goals, tactics,
and rhetoric to
the media of its
time
The BLM
movement is
more than
about the
killings, but
also the
acknowledgme
nt of black art.
(Acting, Sing,
etc.)

All members of
the movement
and even others
who are not
apart of the
movement
helped blow up
situations with
social media
Are hash tags like
#OscarsSoWhite
diminishing the
purpose of the
BLM movement?

Black Lives
Matter does not
mean that all
other lives do
not matter as
well.

Black Twitter, a
constellation of
loosely formed
multifaceted
communities
created
spontaneously
by and for
black Twitter
users who
follow or
promote black
culture

America must
see that riots
do not
develop out of
thin air

Black lives
matter is both
a call to
action and a
societal
indictment

Does the
negative
effect exist
within the
social media
scope of the
movement?

Is social media
the cause for
the outrage of
the BLM
movement?

Tweets related
to the Black
Lives Matter
movement
suggest that
sadness,
rather than
anger, might
be more
effective in
galvanizing
people into
action

Black Lives
Matter is
loosely made
up of various
groups and
organizations
advocating for
Black health
and progress on
various levels
of society

Does The BLM


movement exist
without the
hash tags?

It wasnt until
two black
men died in
the summer of
2014 that
Black Lives
Matter began
to flicker to
life as a
Twitter hash
tag

The BLM
movement
needs to keep
pushing the
social media
platform
