The Black Lives Matter organisation should be looked at more critically, according to the leader of the Social Democratic Party William Clouston.
Speaking to talkRADIO’s Mike Graham, he said “Black Lives Matter is a great slogan and it’s actually a masterpiece of marketing.
“It induces the idea that if you criticise the slogan you are in someway not interested in the welfare of all people, which is nonsense.”
He urged listeners to read up on the anti-racism organisation’s beliefs and aims, beyond its rallying cry.
Black Lives Matter campaigns include calls to redirect police funding into community projects.
Mr Clouston added: “What has really astounded me about recent events is the extent to which a lot of BLM claims have not been treated critically.”
