The White House has confirmed what most logical Americans know: Black Lives Matter is not a terrorist organization. President Obama's administration delivered the news after a We The People petition gathered over 141,000 signatures.

We The People is the White House's official online petitioning service. The Obama administration responds to all petitions that earn more than 100,000 signatures. However, 4chan — a site full of misogynistic and racist trolls — failed to thoroughly research terrorism before submitting the petition.

The White House made that much clear in its response.

Y.S., the petition's creator, wanted Black Lives Matter labeled a terrorist organization for using "violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims."

"Black Lives Matter has earned this title due to its actions in Ferguson, Baltimore, and even at a Bernie Sanders rally, as well as all over the United States and Canada," Y.S. wrote in the initial petition. "It is time for the Pentagon to be consistent in its actions — and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare Black Lives Matter a terror group — on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety."

However, 4chan failed to note two things: the White House doesn't determine what groups are federally-mandated as hate groups, and Black Lives Matter isn't one of them.

The U.S. Department of State determines what constitutes a foreign terrorist organization, but there is no formal tracking of domestic terrorist organizations, like the Ku Klux Klan.

"The White House plays no role in designating domestic terror organizations," the response read. "The U.S. government does not generate a list of domestic terror organizations, and therefore we are not able to address the formal request of your petition."

However, the Department of Justice isn't turning a blind eye. In October, the DOJ announced the creation of the Domestic Terrorism Counsel "to identify trends to help shape our strategy, and to analyze legal gaps or enhancements required to ensure we can combat these threats," according to CNN.

Currently, domestic terrorism poses a greater risk to the safety of Americans than foreign terrorism, according to assistant attorney general John Carlin.

"Looking back over the past few years, it is clear that domestic terrorists and homegrown violent extremists remain a real and present danger to the United States," he told CNN. "We recognize that, over the past few years, more people have died in this country in attacks by domestic extremists than in attacks associated with international terrorist groups."

Which brings us to the second point: Black Lives Matter isn't a terrorist organization.

President Obama said as much during a July 7 statement, given in response to Baton Rouge police officers fatally shooting Alton Sterling.

The White House quoted part of that statement in their response to the petition.

"I know that there are some who have criticized even the phrase 'Black lives matter,' as if the notion is, is that other lives don't matter," Obama said. "And so you get 'all lives matter' or 'blue lives matter.' I understand the point they're trying to make. I think it's important for us to also understand that the phrase 'Black lives matter' simply refers to the notion that there's a specific vulnerability for African Americans that needs to be addressed. 
It's not meant to suggest that other lives don't matter. It's to suggest that other folks aren't experiencing this particular vulnerability. And so we shouldn't get too caught up in this notion that somehow people who are asking for fair treatment are somehow, automatically, anti-police, are trying to only look out for black lives as opposed to others. I think we have to be careful about playing that game, just because that's not obviously what is intended."
Fighting for the unalienable right to live doesn't constitute terrorism.

The Black Lives Matter organization agrees.

The organization has a specific mission, which it as an “an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks' contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression."

Black Lives Matter calls for an overall reduction of violence, not an increase in targeted hatred toward police officers.

So, in conclusion, bigots, Black Lives Matter isn't a terrorist organization and the petition was a waste of time.

FInd another hobby.
