It is still unclear to me what the far left mean by equality.They can scream the word at the tops of their voices but until they are willing to engage in exactly what they mean by it and what their goals are nothing will change.I have no idea what this means.
What are you struggling with?

Noticed on Sky Sports last night for the Charlton/Millwall game that the people in the studio weren't wearing Black Lives Latter badges and had been replaced by Kick It Out ones.
It is a shame Sky and Premier League and the BBC did not do their research and go straight to the non-political Kick It Out slogan and stance.

As it says,Equal military is proportional Static military assigns 100% to whitesIs that not straightforward enough?Both sets of figures demonstrate a significant deficit/burden, so getting bogged down some in James O’Brien style weapons grade pedantry isn’t going to help your cause.
All you are doing is repeating what the site says you are not explaining anything which is not stated on the site.

However if they presented the initial stats then some people would say they aren't accurate as they attribute the spending of 'white mans war' to black people other minority ethinicities and the stats are therefore innacurate. They therefore provide an equivalence excluding Military spending 'white mans war costs (although lets not talk about Obama and the 5 wars he engaged the USA in) as another statistic which also validates the point.
So the fairly obvious answer was that military spending is not significant.
I was looking at how he calculated income tax paid by race in his Race and Tax Payment in 2014 data table. He said he used data from the Tax Foundation and he came to the conclusion that:
This comes out to $4529.52 billion paid by whites, $528.30 billion paid by hispanics, and $485.67 billion paid by blacks.
So if we add these up we get a total of about $5500 billion paid in income tax. Which is $5.5 trillion.
If we look at the Tax Federation's Summary of the Latest Federal Income Tax Data, 2016 Update
The first bullet point in this report says:
In 2014, 139.6 million taxpayers reported earning $9.71 trillion in adjusted gross income and paid $1.37 trillion in individual income taxes.
Now either I've misunderstood the figures (possible) or someone is telling porkies.

So you don't mind the $4 trillion discrepancy in his figures? If that's correct then it would undermine the point of the statistics.
Do you think it was a genuine error or an attempt to mislead people?

Are you making a distinction between support for BLM and support for BLM Organsiation?
Read the OP Charlie.
The sentence 'black lives matter' I do not know anyone disagrees with.
But the people that started BLM and started the use of the hashtag blacklivesmatter are trained Marxists. The organisation in the UK also have Marxist goals. Of that there is no doubt.
