    Don't see the issue. You can't have double standards. If they want to plaster black lives matter everywhere. Then why can't someone say white lives matter?

    This banner may not directly be a racist statement, but it was certainly a dog-whistle for racists, and was definitely in bad taste given the current political situation.

    Black Lives Matter is a movement to specifically raise awareness of and campaign against institutionalised racism and brutality in the police force against black people. Displaying a "White Lives Matter" slogan above a football stadium that has shown solidarity towards BLM both undermines and mocks the movement. White people are a majority in both the UK and the US, and do not face discrimination from society or law enforcement. Good call on Burnley for doing this.

    BLM in the USA is a wholly open and honourable campaigning organisation that was formed in 2013. There is interesting investigative journalism emerging on the leadership, aims and objectives of the UK arm of BLM - BLMUK - which seems to have tentuous, at best, links to the original USA organisation, attaching itself to the umbrella Black Lives Matter Foundation Inc.
    It seems that BLMUK is run by those who are marxist, left wing political anarchists and ajitators, and a coalition of long standing, likeminded organisations with the avowed aim of abolishing the police, smash capitalism and closing all prisons. They seem to be not so transparent as they will not reveal the names of the Leadership, but seem keen to assure and promote that all the organisers are "Black and of the Black African and Carribean dispora" - no mention or acknowledgement of the Asian community.
    No doubt more details will be unearthed and it will be determined if they stand up to transparent scrutiny.

    I think you will find that Burnley's fan numbers will drop considerably - there is a call to boycott all their matches.

    Yes, I understood that was the case. The original BLM has been infiltrated from within their numbers.

    I have better things to do than act as your own personal search engine.
    If you are too lazy or don't know how to use search engines such as Bing or Google that is your problem.
    You may want to look at the disclaimer message on www.blacklivesmatter.uk where they state that they are "NOT affiliated to the activist coalition using @ukblm on Twitter or @blmuk on Instagram" who are looking for Gofunding donations.
    This acknowledges the subversive left wing anarchist infiltration.
    PS Type into your favourite search engine "black lives matter UK" or "blm UK political agenda"

    I'd have said "Black Lives Matter" was certainly a dog-whistle for racists. Especially in conjunction with the black power fist, which has been seen many times on the T.V.

    They are stirring a hornets nest. The far left have already got their neck hairs up thanks to Brexit. Now they are all bored and frustrated due to the Covid virus. This is like lighting the blue paper.

    We have to fear the left taking any excuse to cause trouble, they have a history of mindless violence
