    BlackLivesMatter is a racist organization.

    BlueLivesMatter is a racist organization.

    Both are, in their own way, advocating for a specific race.

    Both are ok.

    Preposterously true.

    To many on the left in America, that is considered a racist viewpoint. Do you see where the problem lies?

    And hence why we have HOAs

    Many cities here In the US effectively mandate them, because the HOA saves them time and money in not having to deal with busybodys or maintain residential streets, or what not.

    Does that change the fact they are a horrible idea? No. It just means the city is lazy.

    No, you just have many more miles to go for those words to actually mean anything beyond simple platitudes. When those words were first written, they meant nothing to a large part of the population (note I don't say citizenship) and they still don't to this day. There are also huge and very rich vested interests in making sure those words are never meant to come true. The groups and foundations will always have more influence, money, time and energy than those trying to achieve the present you think exists.

    Especially money., they fund science, research and books designed to make sure all lives are not seen as equal. This is a long way from the blue lives matter subject of the thread but equally, that phrase resonates because of past problems.

    Yeah, the words were never really meant to apply to all were they. Certainly wasn't what the founders actually thought they meant.

    Both are ok.

    Racism advocates the superiority of a certain race.

    As far as I can tell, neither movement does that and it is often the people who interpret it otherwise who reveal a hidden sense of feeling superior based on their race.

    Homeowners Association...there's your first problem. Probably the only group in all of America that is allowed to rule with an iron fist.
    Everytime i think of the HOA, i think of that one X-Files episode with that anal retentive gated community with the sludge monster.

    Second thing: How's it racist? That's stupid as hell, but that is the mentality of almost everything in America these days. This is racist...that is racist. Piss on those race-baiting pricks. Anti-BLM? Please! A group that has connections to many incidents of hateful Anti-Cop rethoric and acts of violence and destruction. Those pricks make MLK do 360s in his grave everytime they "protest".

    Freedom of speech and freedom of expression are fundamental rights that when truly embrassed, lead to some folks saying things that may sound a little contravertial.

    Freedom and liberty are a cornerstone of this country.

    France is supposed to be that way as well -- Liberté, Equalité, Fraternité. However, after decades of socialist progression, France has outlawed the burqa, and restricted freedom of speech.

    We may have disagreements that we air out in public, but I prefer that to the alternative where the government tells me what I am allowed to think, and what I'm allowed to say, or how I'm allowed to express myself.

    This story is about a home owners association and their rules for a particular neighborhood. The government in the US doesn't have the power to restrict us. We, however, have the power to give others the ability to restrict us, like a home owners association.

    I guess what I'm trying to say here, is that I would be at least reticent in my condemnation of other countries if my own had problems that in some views are even worse.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    On that I have yet to see true evidence. I am hopeful given that it has become more of a cornerstone since the civil rights movement but nobody could argue that the years before that applied to all born in the USA equally.
