The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the five Nobel Prizes established by the will of Swedish industrialist, inventor, and armaments (military weapons and equipment) manufacturer Alfred Nobel, along with the prizes in Chemistry, Physics, Physiology or Medicine, and Literature. Since March 1901, it has been awarded annually (with some exceptions) to those who have “done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses“. ( Wiki) So From this.. we see the root word if this special prize is PEACE.
Since it’s beginning, we can deduct that most of the winners or nominee’s are politically nominated. For instance, Mr. Obama, though dividing a nation through his actions and words, won this prize..oddly. Ghandi was nominated many times throughout his life and never won.
A Norwegian lawmaker has nominated Black Lives Matter, the global racial justice movement, for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. Maybe if the lawmaker lived in one of the burning…looting cities..he would change his mind..
The definition of BLM-Black Lives Matter at the heart of those 3 words are true, as white, hispanic, jewish, and so on matter as well. What is being done in the name of BLM is not peaceful….so lets review the Nobel Process.
What are the criteria for the Nobel Peace Prize?
The will specifies three different criteria for awarding the Peace Prize: the promotion of fraternity between nations, the advancement of disarmament and arms control and the holding and promotion of peace congresses. I can assume the last criteria would be what BLM was nominated for. But the promotion of peace is not what has happened in the name of BLM.
So holding this sign-which those words are so true as they do matter, does not belong with that background behind it- looting, burning-hurting innocent police officers. So 99.9% of the population sees this on TV and it gives BLM a horrible name. I , personally do not believe that the destruction has been day in day out was truly what the founders of BLM wanted.
I have to end here as I will keep getting upset and at a lost for words. What is America coming too? Stay tuned for the next 4 yrs.
