    the name "Black Lives Matter" is tearing me and my my country apart:xf.frown:

    Virginia Beach where I live happens to be the largest city in Virginia, and the largest resort city (by population) in the world.

    Virginia Beach made World News on May 31, 2019 when DeWayne Craddock a deranged and disgruntled (black man) went on a rampage and shot and killed 12 of my neighbors before killing himself. btw, the only reason I put (black man) in parenthesis is because that happened to be the color of his skin, and I thought readers should know.

    My neighbor Mike Melnyk, a Master Police Sargent was one of the first cops on the scene, and you can't possibly imagine what he witnessed. I saw Mike this am on my way to the gym and told him about two names that I'd just registered; "Black and Blue Matters" and "Black and Blue Strong". When I told him about the names he immediately knew why I had registered them....for the purpose of bringing Blacks and Blues (the cops) together. He asked that I email him information about the domains, and he would carry them to the Chief of Police. For the record, Virginia Beach has 800+ sworn officers and about 130 support staff.

    I'm hoping this will rise to the level of our Mayor Bobby Dyer who I know and helped get elected. It's not like Bobby and I are best of friends, but he remembers me from inviting him to speak at Virginia Beach Kiwanis.

    Can names like "Black and Blue Matters" and "Black and Blue Strong" help mend a Nation? I don't know, but I'm sure as hell going to try. Please, share thoughts, suggestions, recommendations and it wouldn't hurt to pray for the USA! Thanks

    Black and Blue also signifies getting your butt beat,bruising, physical abuse and therefore currently a negative.

    The fact that you are even thinking of doing something good for the humanity is admirable.

    Domainers are in a very special situation which allows them to come up with some names that can effect change in the society in a good way.

    So far the legacy for most domainers has been that those with the most domains owned or sold when they die win, but even a bigger and better legacy is if you have thought of or used domains to make a change for the better in the World.

    So don't give up, keep thinking of new domain names and soon you will find one that no one can put down.

    IMO

    That's the negative side of things like I would expect from my critics. Try being a little more positive and maybe life will approve for you:xf.wink:....sorry your glass is half empty.

    Oldtimer...thanks for the compliment. I feel pretty Blessed because my physical health is good and my mind still works. I don't know if you know anything about Virginia Beach, but we have a Boardwalk that's almost 4 miles long, so yesterday after I shared with my neighbor my idea's for Black and Blue Matter(s) and Black and Blue Strong I headed to the Boardwalk where I had an opportunity to meet and walk with a young black couple who were vacationing here from New Jersey. We walked for maybe a mile together and I was able to welcome them to Virginia Beach and have a short chat with them about "Racism" in America. Although Don Lemon of CNN insinuated that I'm a racist because I don't fit his mold, little does he know I could give a "rats ass" what color any human is. I've personally employed/hired hundreds of people in my lifetime and not once has race figured into a hiring decision....and any businessman/woman that does won't be in business very long.

    The last thing I'll share with you, if I were asked, "Richard have your ever said or used the "N" word?" To which my answer would be "yes", but the last time I used it in any context was in 2003 when I was with my brother who lives in Colorado and is a big time environmentalist and a spokesperson against "fracking". When David and I were younger, on occasion we might tell a joke with the "N" word, but we knew even that wasn't right thus we made a pact to never use it again. Oldtimer, that was 17 years ago and things in life change, mostly for the better in my life:xf.wink: Thanks again for chiming in Oldtimer, and God Bless assuming you believe in any kind of God who lets you breathe, see, smile, feel, taste, love and yes create domains:xf.smile:

    The meaning and the movement need to be the same.

    Brad,
    Oh ye of little faith....i know you don't like me, and that's OK for I have plenty of love all around. It appears the domains i created,.BlackandBlueMatters.com, BlackandBlueMatters.org and BlackandBlueStrong.com with the "Blue" meaning "police", has legs. And by that I mean they're being considered as names that UNITE vs. names that DIVIDE. Fortunately I live in Virginia Beach, the largest resort city in the world and we like Indianapolis your hometown have over 800 sworn police officers. Why don't you join me Brad in trying to make a difference in this world:xf.smile: Are you up to the challenge?...make your NamePros family and your personal family proud(y)
