The Black Lives Matter movement has been officially nominated for a 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination was made by Norwegian Member of Parliament (MP) Petter Eide. The Guardian reported that Eide said he made the nomination because, “The movement had forced countries outside the US to grapple with racism within their own societies”.

Nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize are accepted from any politician serving at a national level. The deadline for 2021 submissions is Feb. 1st. A winner is chosen in Oct. and the award ceremony is Dec. 10th.

Ironically, the Daily Caller reports that 91% of the riots that took place last summer in the U.S. had ties to Black Lives Matter groups “which resulted in the most expensive property damage in insurance history”.
