6. BLM is not the only way to get it done

In fact, their actions are pretty much going the opposite direction, and dragging the movement down in the process.

We need to address police brutality and racial injustice and a host of other issues. BLM could have been a strong part of the movement, like the flag coming down moment. Instead they exposed themselves as partisan operatives.

If the main BLM leadership disavowed the event in Seattle, that may have made a difference. Instead they are owning it via their silence and shutting down the apology. If they are swift boating, and it is not officially disavowed by the organization, support should and will be withdrawn and redirected to a more honest set of champions.
