Thank you, Olivia Ford & POZ, for this terrific article. Racism continues to create injustice & tragedy in every aspect of our culture, & #BlackLivesMatter is the most exciting, creative and hope-inspiring movement in many, many years.

How dare you even give Black Lives matter time or attetion on this site. They insite violence towards Police and others. Black lives dont seem to matter in Chicago, why are they not protesting in So Chicago. Im angry that you allow such a pathetic group as black lives matter. When blacks kill white people where are they. Lets stay white lives matter. What a joke you have become ..

Excellent article, fantastic activism at intersection of common causes lead to fighting violence and HIV. Oppression through criminalization is a conservative strategy that KILLS.

Thanks for the article! BLack Lives Matter is doing the work that will liberate ALL OF US. Without the pioneerin and relentless social justice movement of Black people, there would have been no Stonewall, no ACTUP. Blacks have consistently resisted the oppression we all face every day in this country to varying degrees and by doing this teach and inspire all of us to fight for our rights as human beings. Pay no attention to stupid paid trolls. You know your worth!

Excellent work, Olivia. I really appreciate your insight into how Black Lives Matter activism and HIV-focused activism can and need to grow together. Mickey Bradford's comment that HIV criminalization is â??a perfect storm of patriarchal masculinity and anti-blackness" is SO important. Recognizing the connections between sexism, transphobia, homophobia and racism is essential! I am incredibly hopeful and inspired to see a truly intersectional movement finally coming together. Thanks for your view

Black Lives matter has done much more to alienate the populace than generate empathy. They're a loud, obnoxious, clueless and hypocritical group. Get a clue.
