Improving the lot of ( coloured is an antiquated term) is not a specifically partisan issue.
However, conservative Republicans tend to be protective of the police and don't seem to join in criticism of the police very much.
This isn't to say that #blacklivesmatter is about being anti-police. I certainly don't see it that way. My impression is that it's about the way US society and the media deals with black crime victims , and black people who've been arrested who've died in police custody.
Republicans in my opinion, tend to not see race as a factor in many situations that many people of color do , or see discussions of race as unnecessarily stoking conflict. Sometimes they may be right, but often they are minimizing or obfuscating.
You'll get " black on black crime is what we should be talking about " " we don't see groups, we see individuals" " oh, where is Al or Jesse? " " it's easy , don't commit a crime,. Or if you're arrested , don't resist."
Is The GOP wasting a golden opportunity to gain African- American support? Should the GOP embrace #BlackLivesMatter
