[Background: In response to Intervarsity Christian Fellowship's support of Black Lives Matter, I sent this Email to an official Black Lives Matter Email address as of a few minutes ago. I doubt they will contact me back, because who am I that they would contact me? But we will see what happens.]




I have a request for Alicia Garza. My name is Greg. I am the son of a retired military police officer. Alicia Garza has said several times that BLM does not condone violence against the police, but then there have been multiple, multiple Black Lives Matter protests put on by official Black Lives Matter leaders where the crowds are chanting "What do we want? Dead cops!" or "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon!"


Yes, I have seen Ms. Garza say on multiple occasions that BLM does not support violence, but compared to everything else that BLM does it's so passive. To be honest, it seems to me that BLM is screaming for the death of police on one hand and whimpering that it doesn't support violence on the other.

I can say from experience that most cops are good cops.

My request is this: I would ask that Ms Garza speak out against the anti-police violence, and against the calls for violence. She has so much passion, and she could easily get on TV and call for respect for the police, and people would listen. She could help to build bridges, rather than burning them.

I would also ask that BLM stop misrepresenting the facts in so many of these cases. Every time a black suspect is killed, BLM screams "racism" regardless of the circumstances. It doesn't matter if a black cop kills a black suspect in self-defense, BLM still screams "racism".

And it is getting very old.

We can all come together to help both the black community and police officers without crying "wolf". We can build bridges between police and black communities, and we can create a civil, and productive dialogue about the need for justice for African Americans in this country without demonizing or alienating white americans, and the police.


Thank you for taking the time to read my Email,
