It was quite understandable – ‘no politics at the Thanksgiving Dinner table’. So when Rebecca Malstorm wore a Black Lives Matter T-Shirt to her family’s Thanksgiving dinner, her family asked her to change into something else. She did… She changed into another Black Lives Matter T-Shirt.
“We had a strict ‘no politics’ rule, so when one family member asked me to change, I followed the command and changed… into another BLM shirt,” the 19-year-old University of Maryland student told Mashable. She posted photographs of the two shirts on Twitter and the internet loved it.
After changing into her second Black Lives Matter shirt and returning to the dinner table, Malstrom said the reaction from her family members “wasn’t as exciting as it could’ve been.”
She decided to cover the shirt with a sweater to avoid conflict, but the following night at “friendsgiving” with some of her additional family members in attendance, Malstrom proudly wore the same shirt without the words covered. “That’s when I told everyone that my tweet had blown up. Their reactions were priceless!” she said.
“I love my entire family to Pluto and back, but we don’t see eye to eye on politics. However, they have all shown their support and are so proud of me for standing for what I believe in,” Malstrom told Mashable. “Even though not all of my family agrees with my political views, everyone was ecstatic to see how much of an impact I had on the internet.”

Have you ever wondered why Black Lives Matter even exists? It is because of crooked cops who use their badge and gun to murder innocent people, And it’s also because of people like Maria Daly, who filed a false report claiming her home was burglarized, and that Black Lives Matter did the crime.
In this case, the wife of a Massachusetts police officer blamed Black Lives Matter for what turned out to be a bogus invasion of her home. Maria Daly faces charges for filing the false report.
Daly, who is married to an officer on the Millbury police force, claimed in an Oct. 17 police report that robbers busted into her home and stole jewelry and cash in the middle of the night.
The burglars spray-painted “BLM,” shorthand for Black Lives Matter, on the side of the house before dashing off with about $10,000 worth of loot, she told police.
“We woke up to not only our house being robbed while we were sleeping but to see this hatred for no reason,” she wrote on Facebook after she reported the “crime” to cops.
The cop’s wife continued: “If you would have asked me yesterday about this blue lives and black lives matter issue my response would have been very positive. Today on the other hand I have so much anger and hate that I don’t like myself.”
After giving birth to her second child and thanking well wishers, the ‘Scandal’ star took to twitter to “rant” about the recent police killing of Deborah Danner, the 66-year-old woman with schizophrenia, killed by a New York police officer.
“It’s a quiet Saturday afternoon. So, a few things I wanna get off my chest…,” she started. “I saw all your very kind & thoughtful congratulatory tweets. So yeah we thank you. Xo”
The “Scandal” actress also addressed the death of Danner in the Bronx, where Washington grew up.
“Also the loss of #DeborahDanner has rattled my core. Not only becuz of painful truth that we must continue to affirm that #BlackLivesMatter,” she tweeted. “But also becuz #DeborahDanner was killed in the community where I was raised. Community filled w/people I know & love. So when I #sayhername.”
Washington continued, “My heart aches. For lives lost and for the lives we must protect. For the humanity we must work to illuminate and preserve and affirm. #BLM.”
The actress ended her self-described “rant” by encouraging her Twitter followers to check out “Moonlight,” a film released Friday that centers on the story of a young black man in Miami coming to terms with his sexual identity.
“It is artful food for your soul,” Washington said. “At a time when so many of us need to be lovingly nourished.”
She concluded her series of tweets with: “End of rant XOXOXOXOX.”
The question was a simple one, but it caused a reaction on the Charlotte officer that caused the photo below to go viral. What was the question? Was the job worth more than the Black lives killed?

It is sickening to think that there are people in this nation who supported Sarah Palin. And it is even more sickening to think that someone like Sarah Palin was considered to be our vice president. Oh wait! We now have Donald Trump and he wants to be President!!!
Black people in this country have been lynched, beaten, stoned and murdered since the days of slavery. There have been advancements in race relations since those days but thanks to cellphone videos and the Black Lives Matter movement, the rest of the world is getting a look at what black people go through every day in America… land of the free…!
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin however, says the Black Lives Matter movement is a “farce” and said Americans who hyphenate their racial backgrounds — such as African-Americans and Asian-Americans — “further divide our nation.”
#BlackLivesMatter is a farce and hyphenating America destroys us,” the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee wrote on her Facebook page. “Shame on our culture’s influencers who would stir contention and division that could lead to evil such as that in Dallas.”
“Shame on politicians and pundits giving credence to thugs rioting against police officers and the rule of law in the name of “‘peaceful protests.’ It is a farce. #BlackLivesMatter is a farce.”
The former vice presidential candidate said black lives matter more than activists “can grasp.”
“Black Lives Matter? Yes – more than BLM “protestors” can grasp, as evidenced by their self-destructive provocateurism,” she wrote. “Doesn’t it go without saying that Native lives matter, too? And Asian; and Eskimo; and Hispanic; and Indian… and every other race comprised of people who see clearly the agenda at play to weaken America through disunity.”
While campaigning for his wife, the former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in Philadelphia, former President Bill Clinton had a heated confrontation with protesters from BlackLivesMatter, telling them that they should “tell the truth!”
The protesters at this particular event were specific. They held signs criticizing some of of the bills Bill Clinton signed into law when he were president. Some of their signs read; “Clinton crime bill destroyed our communities” and “Welfare reform increased poverty.” And they accused Bill Clinton of destroying black lives with these laws.
But Bill Clinton was not having it!
“I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out on the street to murder other African-American children,” Bill Clinton told the crowd. “Maybe you thought they were good citizens. She didn’t. You are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter. Tell the truth.”
He is a regular face on Fox News especially when Fox is looking for a black person to talk bad about other black people. And he has called the BlackLivesMatter movement all sorts of names in the past. So him saying “Black Lies Matter will join forces with ISIS to being [SIC] down our legal constituted republic…” is nothing strange. Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. is just saying what he is getting paid to say.
Today, Fox’s favorite black sheriff took to his twitter account and tweeted this;
