Statement: Black people don't choose their battles wisely.

Question: Do you agree or disagree?

Context: I was talking with a guy that reads a lot about civil rights and black history. We have talked about the BLM movement and also about what happened at Mizzou. At risk of misrepresenting his opinion: He feels that the young man who went on a hunger strike to get the school president overthrown was a bit misguided in his attempt. He feels like, okay, what did that actually accomplish? The president was fired.. does that actually change the lives of the Black people on campus any? Increase graduation rates? Help need based financial aid? He would argue, no. It's mostly a hollow victory that brought about no real change. And he feels that the only way we will every bring about real change is to use our financial powers.

So what say you?

In this case I agree. But on the other hand lots of people in Louisiana, black and white, are using black on black crime to defend keeping the Confederate monuments up and it disgusts me. Saying resources should be better spent and the monuments aren't the ones killing people. But yes I been said that Mizzou shyt was petty. To me is a case by case.
