Black Lives Matter is nominated for a Nobel peace prize

BLM was nominated for the humanitarian honor by a Norwegian politician who hailed its multi-racial breadth, calling it “a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice,” The Guardian reported.

The pol, Petter Eide, a member of Norway’s Parliament, brushed aside questions of the movement’s occasions of violence on Friday.

“Studies have shown that most of the demonstrations organized by Black Lives Matter have been peaceful,” Eide said.

“Of course there have been incidents, but most of them have been caused by the activities of either the police or counter-protestors.”

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump has been nominated for a second time, by another Norweigan pol.

Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a far-right member of Parliament, cited Trump’s role in normalizing relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.

The Norway-based Nobel Committee is expected to choose the winners in November.
