Comments regarding the recent attack in Israel[edit]

I think this is notable and should be added to the article.

What do others here think?

Not noteworthy. This is just one single local chapter, and the step of ephemeral interest. Its inclusion would be recentist. Also, for second source is surely not reliable BobFromBrockley (talk) 00:13, 12 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think it's too recent to be added as well, as Wiki prefers a long-term view of things. 23impartial (talk) 00:48, 1 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The 'B' in Black people should be capitilized because it is then defining it as a ethnicity, not a color. from an article in the Columbia Journal Review "in the absence of the identifiable ethnicities slavery stole from those it subjugated, Black can be a preferred ethnic designation for some descendants." To capitilize Black is to strip the word from past being used as slavery. Many people used 'African American' to describe Black people in the past however, that is no longer relevent considering not all Black people consider themselves from Africa and perfer the term 'Black people'. Capitilizing the 'B' in the 'Black People' gives respect to that ethnicity group and stips the term of any negative meaning. Also, the Black Lives Matter webiste also capitilizes the 'B' in black people. I am asking that all the 'Bs' in 'Black people' to be changed to capitlized.

Perhaps use: "Allegations of mismanagement of funds arose after the funds were used to purchase a home that cost $6 million in southern California. The property includes six bedrooms, a recording studio, and a swimming pool."

    • corrected the placement of "of funds," changed "have been after" to "arose after," and made the list of property features parallel by using "six bedrooms" instead of "6 bedrooms." 2600:1000:A120:4140:99B2:949C:227B:DD8A (talk) 08:11, 9 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I cannot parse what change you're wanting made. — The Hand That Feeds You:Bite 10:36, 9 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Me neither, since Black Lives Matter is not an organization and has no funds. A house priced at 6 millon dollars was purchased by the unaffiliated organization Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation and is covered in a section about its real estate investments.
