The Black Lives Matter movement has increasingly been misidentified as a terrorist organization, rather than a campaign for recognition of the injustices against black and brown people in the United States. The Black Lives Matter movement does not invalidate the lives or sufferings of non-black people nor does in encourage violence. Instead, the movement aims to highlight the history and on-going systems of oppression against this specific minority group. The movement believes by shining light on these injustices, resolution may begin.
