Trump says Black Lives Matter is 'a bad name, so discriminatory'

Trump says Black Lives Matter is 'a bad name, so discriminatory'”

Delta Air Lines is receiving praise after it upgraded the seat of a Black customer after she was reportedly harassed by a white woman during a flight last week.

Poe, a 25-year-old kindergarten teacher, detailed the interaction in a Facebook post and spoke with The Washington Post.

"I think the narrative that the police are on some epidemic of shooting unarmed black men is simply a false narrative", Barr stated Wednesday on CNN "The fact is that it's very rare for an unarmed African American to be shot by a white police officer".

Poe said the woman continued to provoke her with further comments (such as, "Having Blacks in America has been the best thing for them because they can work [their] way up"), at which point a couple of White passengers came to Poe's defense.

Poe said in her post that after she helped the woman with her bags, the woman left her seat and swapped her original face covering for a "Blue Lives Matter" mask.

"That woman was trying to entice me into an argument because there was no need for her to flip that mask in my presence", Poe told USA Today.

"Dear Ms. Poe", the note began.

"It's a deeper meaning, because you're saying Black lives matter as a major company, you're saying you do see the struggle.you do see the injustice.you do see the hatred.and you're not standing by it", Poe said. "You matter to us, Demetria".

Google's automatic search suggestions for "Black Lives Matter" reveal a strikingly positive image of the movement, with nearly all negative references appearing to have been cleansed from the automated results.

Different phrasing generates different results, with some search questions bringing back results suggesting that Black Lives Matter is a controversial movement.

"We have a lot of work to do for true equity to be within reach for the Black community, and it's part of our culture to represent efforts our customers and our employees care about". She says she's pleased with how Delta handled the situation and says she'll only fly with the airline from now on. "But I will say that I don't want to have to go to one like that ever again", she said.
