That dweeb from the Law School posted that endorsement of BLM and all hell broke loose.

?

I am not what would be considered a "big money"donor, but I am a faithful contributor to the athletic foundation. I was sent a TAF email and part of my response was this:

"I am not able to donate in good conscience to an organization, even one that I support as much as LSU, until LSU makes clear their stance on this anti-American Marxist organization. Black lives matter as much as anyone else’s, the BLM organization is, however, an affront to any decent human regardless of their color, creed, or ethnicity."

I added that the very things the disgraceful BLM org is advocating for (destroying the nuclear family, defunding police, etc) are completely antithetical to the idea of ensuring that black communities are safe places for its members to thrive in.


This was part of the response I received:

"During the weekend of June 12th, the phrase “Black Lives Matter”, was displayed on LSU scoreboards and in social media to coincide with a peaceful “unity rally” organized by LSU and Southern University students. The phrase does not endorse a specific organization, or a specific set of policies and it was meant to demonstrate LSU’s understanding and support for concerns expressed by students."




Has LSU said anything like this PUBLICLY?

Not long ago every major athletic program was tripping over each other to present the best virtue signaling statement.They all used terms like " we must listen", "I must do more", etc etc. No specifics about how they had been deficient before or exactly hat they would do.I bet six months from now nothing will have been done. It was just lip service to appease the mob and prevent them from becoming targets.

re: LSU blm status
I have personally always wondered what exactly the so-called "community leaders" are doing to curb all the violence and gang activity within the communities they claim to represent.

The undeniable facts are that black people commit over half of all murders and robberies in the US despite comprising only about 12% of the US population. And it's more than a black on black problem because blacks victimize other races at a higher rate than other races COMBINED victimize blacks. So I would like to know what tangible things are being done to curb these issue within their communities.

I would add that glorifying a violent career criminal like George Floyd is not productive. This is a drug addict and violent criminal that once held a gun to a pregnant woman's stomach so that he and his friends could rob her. That is an irredeemable act in my opinion. Chauvin was wrong but the fact is that the world and the community is a safer place now that Floyd is gone. And yes, if Floyd was white I would be upset at the way the officer conducted himself, but I certainly wouldn't shed any tears over a dead career criminal. I wouldn't be painting murals of him and holding candlelight vigils.

The fact that this is happening shows you something in rotten to the core in those communities

If that's the case, then they need to take that shite off their homepage.

You raised some great points. There are never any specifics , just the usual " we all know there is systemic racism. Then when an incident like George Floyd occurs they all rally around it like this is the norm.

The despicable and deplorable media twists and spins the narrative, fueling more people to get involved. Then the Hollywood glitterati jump in and give it more notice and all the vapid celebrities weigh in with their trite bull shite. Academia is always there to seal the deal and will invent more and more radical ways to discriminate against whites, while ignoring the failings of blacks and lowering standards to accomodate their deficiencies.

That's a cop-out to me. There are other ways of saying the same thing without using the exact words of an anti American and Marxist organization.

Actually it sounds like a feeble "cover my arse so the big money guys don't get pissed" to me.

re: LSU blm status
Until you realize LSU took the athletes to register to “vote for change”. What do you think that means?

LSU knew exactly what is was doing. If it’s real, then they can make an official statement that they do not support the Marxist, terrorist organization that the moniker they use on the scoreboards represents.

Wanna bet they won’t? I’m done with LSU until the renounce the political nonsense.
