AMERICAN POLL ON OPINIONS OF BLACK LIVES MATTER


The news is much better than I thought. It's possible my own foul mood over Yvette, Alton, and Philando is responsible for my surprise at the positive news. But first a little history graphic, adjusted just for you.

"The Black Lives Matter movement, which came to national prominence in the wake of the 2014 police shooting of an unarmed black 17*-year-old named Trayvon Martin in Ferguson, Missouri, continues to gain attention following other incidents involving the deaths of black Americans during encounters with the police. A recent Pew Research Center survey conducted Feb. 29-May 8, 2016, found that general awareness of Black Lives Matter is widespread among black and white U.S. adults, but attitudes about the movement vary considerably between groups."
