3) The socialistic / marxist ideas behind BLM

 

DISCLAIMER:

 

The following evidence is an attempt to show that socialist / communist forces, anarchist groups and others are associated with BLM and other potential black power movements.

 

All information gathered for this post comes from blm founder interviews easily found on youtube and the internet itself. I take NO CREDIT for any interviews or other potential copyrighted items in this post. I am simply trying to expose a dangerous, racist movement that provides nothing for those who follow it and those who have to deal with the protests and criminality associated with is happening in the USA and elsewhere.

 

As I previously mentioned in part one.

 

“BLM DC is a radical collective of Black artists, infrastructure builders and movement healers and strategists from the future, organizing in the here and now around two movement equations. These equations inform how we live as our highest selves while dismantling White Supremacy, Patriarchy, Capitalism, Imperialism and the role the state plays in supporting them.”

 

“The first is BLM DC believes Organized Resistance + Continual Healing + Consistent Spaces for Centering Black Joy = Liberation. This means we believe that we can be liberated right now through centering healing and joy in our daily lives. We also think there are obstacles like state sanctioned violence that limit our ability to live as the liberated people we are capable of being and thus organized resistance is necessary. The other side of this equation is one we have borrowed from the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, it helps us frame the way we integrate healing with organized resistance. It is a similar equation of Building + Blocking + Being. Our organized resistance BUILDS campaigns to dismantle systems of oppression while BUILDING liberated spaces, our healing spaces BLOCK oppressive beliefs and racial trauma while BUILDING resilience, our centering of Black Joy reminds of why we fight and lets us BE resilient and free together thereby making us stronger BUILDERS.”

 

“BLM Programs that Build: M4BL DC Steering Committee, Black Organizer Dinners, Emotional Emancipation Circles, #KeepDC4ME, Black Joy Sunday, Re-Envisioning Masculinity Workshops”

 

“BLM Programs that Block: direct actions [occupations, highway shut downs, disruptions, blockades etc], Non-Profit Accountability Campaigns, Weeks of Action.”

 

“BLM Programs that Sustain and Elevate our BE: Emotional Emancipation Circles, Men of Color Consciousness Building Groups, Black Joy Sunday, Black Organizer Dinners, visioning sessions,  Well Examined Life analysis building.”

And this continues with:

 

“ABOUT US: Movement for Black Lives”

 

“The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) formed in December of 2014, was created as a space for Black organizations across the country to debate and discuss the current political conditions, develop shared assessments of what political interventions were necessary in order to achieve key policy, cultural and political wins, convene organizational leadership in order to debate and co-create a shared movement wide strategy. Under the fundamental idea that we can achieve more together than we can separately.”

 

“We are Abolitionist:”

 

“We believe that prisons, police and all other institutions that inflict violence on Black people must be abolished and replaced by institutions that value and affirm the flourishing of Black lives.”

 

“We believe in centering the experiences and leadership of the most marginalized Black people, including but not limited to those who are trans and queer, women and femmes, currently and formerly incarcerated, immigrants, disabled, working class, and poor.

We believe in transformation and a radical realignment of power:”

 

“The current systems we live inside of need to be radically transformed, which includes a realignment of global power. We are creating a proactive, movement-based vision instead of a reactionary one.”

 

“We build kinship with one another:”

 

“We draw from political lessons, grow in our leadership, and expanding our base to build a stronger movement.”

 

“We are anti-capitalist:”

 

“We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system.”

Alicia Garza

Individual Last updated: June 13, 2020

 

Overview

 

Co-founder of Black Lives Matter

    Marxist

Views America as a racist, sexist, homophobic nation

 

“Born in 1981, Alicia Garza is a self-described “queer” social-justice activist who reveres the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, and convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur for her contributions to the “Black Liberation Movement.” Garza is likewise a great admirer of Angela Davis (another Marxist and former Black Panther), Ella Baker (an avowed socialist who had ties to the Communist Party USA and the Weather Underground), and Audre Lorde (a black Marxist lesbian feminist). “These women really attempt and attempted to tackle some of the biggest questions facing our society,” says Garza. “Learning about them and in some cases getting a chance to meet them really underscores that everyday people, when working together with a shared vision, can accomplish extraordinary things.”

 

“In 2013, Garza collaborated with Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi to co-found Black Lives Matter (BLM), an online platform designed to stoke black rage and galvanize a protest movement in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman, a white man who was tried for murder and manslaughter after he had shot and killed a black Florida teenager named Trayvon Martin in a highly publicized February 2012 altercation. Condemning “the anti-Black racism that permeates our society,” Garza describes BLM as “an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise”; where African Americans are bombarded ceaselessly by “deadly oppression” and all manner of “injustice”; and where “extrajudicial killings of Black people by police and vigilantes” are disturbingly commonplace.”

 

“In an essay titled “A Herstory of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement,” Garza states that BLM is, at its essence, “a tactic to (re)build the Black liberation movement” for those who, as a result of ubiquitous “white supremacy” and “state violence,” have been “deprived of [their] basic human rights and dignity.” This deprivation, she says, manifests itself in a variety of forms—most notably, rampant poverty, “genocide,” and mass incarceration. The fact that “1 million Black people are locked in cages in this country,” Garza asserts, separates many black fathers from their sons and daughters while forcing black women “to bear the burden of a relentless assault on our children and our families.”

 

“Averring, in that same essay, that blacks “are uniquely, systematically, and savagely targeted by the state,” Garza objects to members of other demographic groups who seek, via slogans like “All Lives Matter,” to analogize their own struggles to those of African Americans. “[S]tand with us in affirming Black lives,” she declares. “Not just all lives. Black lives. Please do not change the conversation by talking about how your life matters, too. It does, but we need less watered down unity and a more active solidarities [sic] with us, Black people, unwaveringly, in defense of our humanity.” The “tired trope that we are all the same,” Garza elaborates, serves only to “perpetuate a level of White supremacist domination.” And while conceding that “non-Black oppressed people in this country” may be “impacted by racism and domination” to some degree, she is quick to add that they also invariably “BENEFIT from anti-black racism.” (Emphasis in original)”

 

“Though BLM is intended to represent the needs and grievances of all black people, Garza’s essay makes it clear that the organization is especially committed to helping “Black queer and trans folks” because they “bea[r] a unique burden in a hetero-patriarchal society that disposes of us like garbage and simultaneously fetishizes us and profits off of us.” Also getting a special mention from Garza are the “500,000 Black people in the U.S. [who] are undocumented immigrants and relegated to the shadows.”

 

“In 2015, Garza spoke at the annual Left Forum convention in New York City.”

 

“In May 2015, Garza characterized the recent protests and riots in Baltimore—which erupted after a local black criminal named Freddie Gray had died under disputed circumstances while in police custody—as “Black Spring” demonstrations akin to the massive “Arab Spring” actions that had threatened and/or toppled a number of Middle Eastern regimes beginning in early 2011. “What we know,” said Garza, “is that there is a Black Spring that is emerging where communities that have been under the boot of police terrorism, communities that have been attacked by poverty and unemployment, are rising up, coming together and advancing new solutions and new visions and new demands to create a new world where Black peoples’ lives matter…. [W]e’ve had enough.”

 

“In January 2016, Garza and her two BLM co-founders — Patrisse and Opal Tometi — were special guests of Rep. Barbara Lee at President Obama’s final State of the Union address.”

 

“In March 2016, Fortune magazine named Garza and her two BLM co-founders to its list of the “50 of the most influential world leaders.”

 

“In a September 2016 interview with Complex.com, Garza stated that Americans would be better off if the nation’s “corroded and corrupt system” of policing were to be terminated. “Quite frankly, many of our [BLM] members are continuing to investigate what it would mean to have police-free communities. I think what we’ve continued to see over time is that no moral appeal [to police] is actually stopping the deaths of black people [at the hands of police], whether they be armed or unarmed.” Moreover, Garza asserted that crime and violence were nothing more than logical responses to societal injustice and economic inequality: “How do we stop violence, looting, and riots? The way that we stop that is by making sure that people have the things that they need to thrive. When people are systematically denied their right to adequate housing, adequate schools, to adequate food, to dignity—this is a response and a reaction that we should absolutely expect.”

“In addition to her work with BLM, Garza also: (a) serves as the special projects director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), which agitates for better pay and working conditions on behalf of nannies, housecleaners, and home-based caregivers; (b) serves on the board of directors for the Oakland, California-based School of Unity and Liberation (SOUL), whose mission is to create “a new generation of organizers rooted in a systemic change analysis—especially people of color, young women, queer and transgender youth and low-income people”; (c) works with Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity (BOLD), a group that teaches black activists how to help build a “social justice infrastructure”; and (d) writes for WarTimes magazine, which promotes “antiwar, antimilitarist” efforts to radically transform American society by stoking antagonisms based on “race, class and gender.”

 

“In years past, Garza was: (a) board chair of the Right To The City Alliance (RTTC), a nationwide network that opposes inner-city “gentrification” that displaces “low-income people, people of color, marginalized LGBTQ communities, and youths of color from their historic urban neighborhoods”; and (b) executive director (from 2009-14) of the San Francisco-based People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER), a group aiming to “secur[e] living wage employment, job security, affordable housing, and community services” for low-income black and Latino families. Garza boasts that under her leadership, POWER successfully “beat back regressive local policies targeting undocumented people,” “organized against the chronic police violence in Black neighborhoods,” and “shed light on the ongoing wave of profit-driven development” that was allegedly harming poor minorities in San Francisco.”

 

“In his January 2016 article “Reds Exploiting Blacks: The Roots of Black Lives Matter,” author James Simpson notes that four of the groups with which Garza has been affiliated—NDWA, SOUL, RTTC, and POWER—are front groups for the Marxist-Leninist Freedom Road Socialist Organization.”

 

“Portraying America as a country awash in sexism as well as racism, Garza laments that black female employees earn “at least” 14% less, on average, than white women, who in turn are paid 25% less than their male counterparts.”

Patrisse Cullors

Individual

Last updated: June 13, 2020

 

Overview

 

Co-founder of Black Lives Matter

Views America as a racist, sexist nation

 

“A self-described “artist, organizer and freedom fighter” who seeks to reform America’s allegedly racist jail-and-prison system, Patrisse Cullors was born in Los Angeles in 1984. When she was a child, her father was incarcerated numerous times for drug offenses. In a February 2015 interview with Vice.com, Miss Cullors said that at age 16 she “came out as queer,” “was kicked out of home,” and subsequently formed close connections with “a bunch of other young queer women of color” who, like her, were dealing with the challenges of “poverty [and] being black and brown in the USA.”

 

“Identifying strongly with the famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman, Cullors traces her impulse toward activism back to 1999, when her older brother Monte was allegedly beaten by a group of L.A. deputies while he was in their custody. At age 18, Miss Cullors began volunteering with the Bus Riders Union, a public transportation advocacy group organized by a Los Angeles-based think tank known as the Labor and Community Strategies Center (LCSC). A few years later, the Center hired Cullors to train high-school students in political organizing tactics. Cullors herself was trained to be an activist by former Weather Underground leader Eric Mann. She worked for LCSC from 2001-12.”

 

“In 2011 Cullors was a guest speaker at the annual Left Forum convention in New York City.”

 

“In 2012 Cullors earned a degree in religion and philosophy from UCLA. She thereafter completed a fellowship at the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership (at Kalamazoo College), where she: (a) organized and headed a think tank on “state and vigilante violence,” and (b) produced and directed a theatrical piece titled “POWER: From the Mouths of the Occupied,” which accused the U.S. of perpetrating “state violence” and “genocide” against African Americans.”

 

“Also in 2012, Cullors became interested in a civil-rights lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union alleging that gangs of deputies in the L.A. Sheriff’s Department had been systematically beating and abusing inmates. Before long, Cullors and five likeminded friends began organizing protests against these alleged transgressions. As membership in her group grew to more than four-dozen people, Cullors named it Dignity and Power Now (DPN). She continues to serve as a lead organizer for the group. Dedicated to “protecting incarcerated people and their families in Los Angeles,” DPN today is sponsored by the L.A.-based nonprofit group Community Partners. DPN is also a front group for the Marxist-Leninist Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO).”

 

“In 2013 Cullors collaborated with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi to co-found Black Lives Matter (BLM), an online platform designed to stoke black rage and galvanize a protest movement in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman, a white man who was tried for murder and manslaughter after he had shot and killed a black Florida teenager named Trayvon Martin in a highly publicized February 2012 altercation.”

 

“On April 18, 2013, Cullors spoke at a Los Angeles rally titled “Urgent Call to Defend the Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro.” The event was rooted in the belief that “right-wing elements backed by U.S. imperialism are attempting a coup against constitutional rule in Venezuela.”

 

“In one of her more high-profile undertakings, Cullors in the fall of 2014 led a group of some 600 fellow BLM protesters in a “Freedom Ride” from St. Louis to Ferguson, Missouri. Their purpose was to protest a white Ferguson police officer’s recent killing of an 18-year-old black male named Michael Brown.”

 

“Cullors is committed to fighting what she calls “the current system” of “white supremacy” and “anti-blackness” that inflicts “state violence” on African Americans. As she told The Feminist Wire in December 2014, she views BLM as a vehicle for promoting “major policy” geared toward “decriminalizing Black lives,” “reducing the law-enforcement budget,” and forcing some police departments to be “disbanded or abolished.” “With a reduction of law-enforcement money,” Cullors elaborates, “we can then be putting it back into Black communities”—i.e., into government programs that provide “black folks” with “jobs,” “housing,” and “healthy food.” Moreover, she vows that until “a victim’s bill of rights” is passed to protect blacks from abuse by police officers, she and her fellow activists are “gonna shut shit down.”

 

“On February 20, 2015, Cullors visited the White House, where she met with First Lady Michelle Obama.”

 

“In May 2015, Cullors characterized the recent protests and riots in Baltimore—which erupted after a local black criminal named Freddie Gray had died under disputed circumstances while in police custody—as “Black Spring” demonstrations akin to the massive “Arab Spring” actions that had threatened and/or toppled a number of Middle Eastern regimes beginning in 2011. “Black Spring,” she said, “is about really looking at this moment, as not these isolated incidences.… Black people are not a monolithic group, but what we are facing is something that’s extreme—and that’s poverty, that’s homelessness, that’s higher rates of joblessness, that’s law enforcement invading our communities day in and day out—and we are uprising. And so this Black Spring is about really talking about a national uprising.”

 

“In July 2015, Cullors spoke at the annual Netroots Nation convention in Phoenix. In the course of her remarks, she exhorted fellow blacks to “rise the fuck up” and “burn everything down!” She also said that the allegedly high incidence of black-on-black crime “is a myth.”

 

“In January 2016, Cullors and her two BLM co-founders — Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi — were special guests of Rep. Barbara Lee at President Obama’s final State of the Union address.”

 

“In March 2016, Fortune magazine named Cullors and her two BLM co-founders to its list of the “50 of the most influential world leaders.”

 

“In an August 2017 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Cullors said that BLM would never talk with President Donald Trump because he was akin to Adolf Hitler: “We wouldn’t as a movement take a seat at the table with Trump because we wouldn’t have done that with Hitler. Trump is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country — be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia…. And if I’m thinking about what I want my children to know in 30, 40, 50 years, I want them to know that I resisted a president at all costs, because this president literally tried to kill our communities, and is killing our communities.””

 

“In an August 2017 interview with MSNBC, Cullors argued that hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Said Cullors: “David Duke and the white supremacists who showed up to Charlottesville [the site of a recent Virginia rally that included some self-identified neo-Nazis], that is Trump’s base. And that base is not isolated. It’s not — it’s directly related to Trump’s policies and the policies that have continued to harm and kill black people and our allies. I think we’re seeing a movement of white nationalists rising up because they’ve been emboldened by Trump and his government…. And hate speech, which is what we’re seeing coming out of white nationalist groups, is not protected under the First Amendment rights.”

 

“In addition to her work with BLM, Cullors is also active in a network called Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity (BOLD), which teaches black activists how to help build a “black social justice infrastructure.”

 

“Cullors’ Anti-Israel Orientation”

 

“In January 2015, Cullors joined representatives from the Dream Defenders as well as a number of likeminded anti-police-brutality protesters in taking a 10-day trip to the Palestinian Territories in the West Bank. Their objective was to publicly draw a parallel between what they defined as Israeli oppression of the Palestinians in the Middle East, and police violence against blacks in the United States. The other delegates who made this trip were five Dream Defenders (Phillip Agnew, Ciara Taylor, Steven Pargett, Sherika Shaw, Ahmad Abuznaid); Tef Poe and Tara Thompson from Ferguson/Hands Up United; journalist and professor Marc Lamont Hill; Cherrell Brown and Carmen Perez of the Justice League NYC; Charlene Carruthers from the Black Youth Project; poet and artist Aja Monet; and USC doctoral student Maytha Alhassen.”

 

“In August 2015, Cullors was one of more than 1,000 black activists, artists, scholars, politicians, students, “political prisoners,” and organizational representatives to sign a statement proclaiming their “solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and commitment to the liberation of Palestine’s land and people”; demanding an end to Israel’s “occupation” of “Palestine”; condemning “Israel’s brutal war on Gaza and chokehold on the West Bank”; urging the U.S. government to end all aid to Israel; and exhorting black institutions to support the Boycott, Divestment, & Sanctions movement against the Jewish state. Key passages from the statement included the following:”

 

“    “Palestinians on Twitter were among the first to provide international support for protesters in Ferguson, where St. Louis-based Palestinians gave support on the ground. Last November, a delegation of Palestinian students visited Black organizers in St. Louis, Atlanta, Detroit and more, just months before the Dream Defenders took representatives of Black Lives Matter, Ferguson, and other racial justice groups to Palestine. Throughout the year, Palestinians sent multiple letters of solidarity to us throughout protests in Ferguson, New York, and Baltimore. We offer this statement to continue the conversation between our movements.””

 

“    “We remain outraged at the brutality Israel unleashed on Gaza through its siege by land, sea and air, and three military offensives in six years. We remain sickened by Israel’s targeting of homes, schools, UN shelters, mosques, ambulances, and hospitals. We remain heartbroken and repulsed by the number of children Israel killed in an operation it called ‘defensive.’ We reject Israel’s framing of itself as a victim. Anyone who takes an honest look at the destruction to life and property in Gaza can see Israel committed a one-sided slaughter.”

 

“    “Israel’s injustice and cruelty toward Palestinians is not limited to Gaza and its problem is not with any particular Palestinian party. The oppression of Palestinians extends throughout the occupied territories, within Israel’s 1948 borders, and into neighboring countries. The Israeli Occupation Forces continue to kill protesters—including children—conduct night raids on civilians, hold hundreds of people under indefinite detention, and demolish homes while expanding illegal Jewish-only settlements.”

    “Our support extends to those living under occupation and siege, Palestinian citizens of Israel, and the 7 million Palestinian refugees exiled in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Palestine. The refugees’ right to return to their homeland in present-day Israel is the most important aspect of justice for Palestinians.”

 

“    “Palestinian liberation represents an inherent threat to Israeli settler colonialism and apartheid, an apparatus built and sustained on ethnic cleansing, land theft, and the denial of Palestinian humanity and sovereignty. While we acknowledge that the apartheid configuration in Israel/Palestine is unique from the United States (and South Africa), we continue to see connections between the situation of Palestinians and Black people.”

 

“    “Israel’s widespread use of detention and imprisonment against Palestinians evokes the mass incarceration of Black people in the US, including the political imprisonment of our own revolutionaries.”

 

“    “U.S. and Israeli officials and media criminalize our existence, portray violence against us as ‘isolated incidents,’ and call our resistance ‘illegitimate’ or ‘terrorism.’ These narratives ignore decades and centuries of anti-Palestinian and anti-Black violence that have always been at the core of Israel and the US. We recognize the racism that characterizes Israel’s treatment of Palestinians is also directed against others in the region, including intolerance, police brutality, and violence against Israel’s African population.”

“We know Israel’s violence toward Palestinians would be impossible without the U.S. defending Israel on the world stage and funding its violence with over $3 billion annually. We call on the U.S. government to end economic and diplomatic aid to Israel. We wholeheartedly endorse Palestinian civil society’s 2005 call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel and call on Black and U.S. institutions and organizations to do the same. We urge people of conscience to recognize the struggle for Palestinian liberation as a key matter of our time.”

 

“    “[W]e aim to sharpen our practice of joint struggle against capitalism, colonialism, imperialism, and the various racisms embedded in and around our societies.”

 

“Other notable signatories included Angela Davis, Cornel West, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and rapper Talib Kweli.”

Opal Tometi

Individual

Last updated: June 13, 2020

 

Overview

 

Co-founder of Black Lives Matter

Views America as a racist, sexist nation

 

“Born in 1984 to parents who had immigrated illegally from Nigeria to the U.S. during the previous year, Opal Tometi grew up in Phoenix and attended the University of Arizona-Tucson, where she earned a BA in history and an MA in communications & advocacy. During her college years, Tometi volunteered for an American Civil Liberties Union project that monitored and reported on the activities of “vigilantes” who sought to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the United States.”

 

“Tometi later worked as a leasing associate and marketing manager for the Phoenix-based real-estate firm Cowen Commercial from 2006-08; a self-employed public-relations specialist from 2008-10; and a communications & outreach intern for Witness, a group that produced videos designed to draw attention to human-rights violations around the world, for part of 2009. Since January 2011, she has been a national organizer for Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI), a George Soros–funded group that strives to advance “immigrant rights and racial justice” for “African-American, Afro-Latino, African and Caribbean immigrant communities.” Tometi’s official BAJI profile describes her as “a Black feminist writer, communications strategist and cultural organizer.”

 

“Tometi laments the “relentless discrimination and criminalization” to which African immigrants in the U.S. are subjected on a regular basis. In 2010 she condemned SB 1070, an Arizona law that authorized state police to check with federal authorities on the immigration status of criminal suspects. Characterizing this practice as “basically racial profiling,” Tometi warned that “if we don’t come together, we’re going to see the gains of the Civil Rights Movement fully gutted.”

 

“Tometi similarly views Voter ID laws as racist schemes designed to disenfranchise nonwhite voters.”

 

“In 2013, Tometi collaborated with Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors to co-found Black Lives Matter (BLM), an online platform designed to stoke black rage and galvanize a protest movement in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman, a white man who was tried for murder and manslaughter after he had shot and killed a black Florida teenager named Trayvon Martin in a highly publicized February 2012 altercation.”

 

“On September 23, 2013, Tometi visited the White House, where she met with Heather Foster, President Obama’s then-lead liaison to the African-American community.”

 

“In 2014, Tometi spoke at the annual Left Forum convention in New York City.”

 

“In a February 1, 2015 article which she wrote for the Huffington Post, Tometi asserts that “the racist structures that have long oppressed Black people” in the United States have perpetuated a “cycle of oppression” and a climate of “anti-Black racism” that “operates at a society-wide level and colludes in a seamless web of policies, practices and beliefs to oppress and disempower Black communities.” This racism is evidenced, she explains, by the fact that “every 28 hours a Black person is being killed [by police] with impunity,” “unemployment in Black communities” is significantly higher than in white communities, and “Blacks make up 40% of the imprisoned population” in the U.S.  Moreover, Tometi claims, the combination of “divestment from the public sector” and the passage of “laws that criminalize non-violent activity” have led to “obscene rates mass of incarceration” for black people. In the same piece, Tometi charges that her own home state of New York “allows law enforcement to kill Black people at nearly the same rate as Jim Crow lynchings” once occurred in the Old South.”

 

“In a similar vein, Tometi’s December 2014 Huffington Post article, titled “Staying Focused in the Movement for Racial Justice,” condemns the “damaging and dangerous life-changing outcomes” that New York City’s “racially biased” criminal-justice system imposes on “communities of color.” The “overwhelming police presence in our neighborhoods,” says Tometi, “wear[s] people down.” In particular, she deplores the so-called “broken windows policing” practices rooted in the premise that cracking down on offenders who commit low-level offenses — such as panhandling, public urination, turnstile jumping, or graffiti vandalism — serves, ultimately, to prevent the commission of more serious crimes. Because blacks comprise a disproportionate percentage of those affected by the enforcement of laws against low-level infractions, Tometi considers those enforcement practices to be racist. “The time is now for real, deep, substantive change,” she writes.”

 

“In a January 2015 piece titled “Celebrating MLK Day: Reclaiming Our Movement Legacy,” Tometi calls for the development of a “new” and “radical” contingent of “Black trans people, Black queer people, Black immigrants, Black incarcerated people and formerly incarcerated people, Black millennials, Black women, low income Black people, and Black people with disabilities” to lead social-justice activism in the United States.”

 

“In January 2016, Tometi and her two BLM co-founders — Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza — were special guests of Rep. Barbara Lee at President Obama’s final State of the Union address.”

 

“In March 2016, Fortune magazine named Tometi and her two BLM co-founders to its list of the “50 of the most influential world leaders.”

 

“In July 2016, Tometi spoke to the United Nations General Assembly on issues related to race, white supremacy, and police terror.”

 

“In addition to her work with BAJI and BLM, Tometi is also active in a network called Black Organizing for Leadership and Dignity (BOLD), which teaches black activists how to help build a “social justice infrastructure.” She is a board member of the Puente Human Rights Movement, a Phoenix-based group that opposes efforts to stem the flow of illegal immigration. And she describes herself as a “believer and practitioner of liberation theology.”

I am not alone in this criticism of this movement and it’s actors.

+“Is Black Lives Matter turning socialist?”

“Ryan Cooper August 5, 2016”

 

https://theweek.com/articles/641044/black-lives-matter-turning-socialist

 

 

+Above article is pro blm but does recognize that aspects of blm are developing socialistic ideology that has been shown from the above article samples.

 

 

What is my point in all this.

 

BLM and it’s black / African allies and the socialist are in reality against the very ideas of American freedom that exist in our flawed country. The very ideas about racism as being a system and that capitalism is somehow a component of racism is bizarre and hard to prove. NO ONE who is a racist gets anything from the ideology of racism. And yes it is a ideology…

 

 

“racism noun”

“rac•ism | \ ˈrā-ˌsi-zəm”

“Definition of racism”

 

“1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race”

2a : a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles

b : a political or social system founded on racism

3 : racial prejudice or discrimination

 

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/racism

 

 

Are there tax breaks, wealth that is gained from being a racist or being involved in racism? I have never met anyone who obtains wealth from such ideas.

 

And yes. I have met racists that were Black, White, mixed, Mexican and many other races over the almost 49 years of being alive. So to make any claims that white people are the sole cause of racism in the United States is not only wrong but short sighted.

 

The America I know is a melting pot. You can marry any woman of your choosing providing she is single, willing and loves you as a man. It doesn’t matter her parentage, her race, her ethnic group. She can be a lowly Filipina with a back ground in farming (Like my wife) or a wealthy gal who has fallen in love with you.

 

What the political left in the USA has done is raised racism as a new undead enemy to fight and all the while with their protests, riots, looting, criminality, police murders and other criminality pissed off political conservatives, Christians, Jews and all those who support ideas involving Patriotism, Freedom, Capitalism and more.

 

No. We white folk aren’t the REAL reason for racism in the 21st Century. While some of us had racist family members in the past. Those who were World war 1 & 2 vets who lived during those ACTUAL racist times are almost all dead. The lessons of the 1950s-1970s and beyond marked us ‘kids’ who grew up being racially color blind choosing to accept male or female not race as our friends, wives or husbands, co-workers etc.

 

Yes we can agree let’s teach our new generations to be not racist, biased, xenophobic. Let’s teach them to accept people based on the old fashion ideas of male or female, good people and to stay away from the bad people.
