The ideologies behind black lives matter

Started: 8-16-2020

Finished: 11-11-2020

As a individual that has to watch out for the neo-black racism at a local level thanks to blm & antifa I’ve discovered the following ideologies that make up black lives matter as a organization. This research is for my own safety and the safety of other people irregardless of being ‘white’, European, Jewish etc.

Here is what I know about blm ideology and it’s doctrines from their resources.

1 Abolish police = anarchists

2 Critical race theory

3 socialism

The following examples of subjects are solely the words of the authors and is meant as evidence that can be used against them and blm in a court of law since they are the groups causing criminal attacks against Police & others who are not part of their movements, groups and world view.

1 Abolish the police. According to blm and it’s allies.

“Defund The Police”

“May 30, 2020”

“Enough is enough.”

“Our pain, our cries, and our need to be seen and heard resonate throughout this entire country.”

“We demand acknowledgment and accountability for the devaluation and dehumanization of Black life at the hands of the police.”

“We call for radical, sustainable solutions that affirm the prosperity of Black lives.”

“George Floyd’s violent death was a breaking point — an all too familiar reminder that, for Black people, law enforcement doesn’t protect or save our lives. They often threaten and take them.”

“Right now, Minneapolis and cities across our country are on fire, and our people are hurting — the violence against Black bodies felt in the ongoing mass disobedience, all while we grapple with a pandemic that is disproportionately affecting, infecting, and killing us.”

“We call for an end to the systemic racism that allows this culture of corruption to go unchecked and our lives to be taken.”

“We call for a national defunding of police. We demand investment in our communities and the resources to ensure Black people not only survive, but thrive. If you’re with us, add your name to the petition right now and help us spread the word.”

“Currently, we are fighting two deadly viruses: COVID-19 is threatening our health. White Supremacy is threatening our existence. And both are killing us every single day.”

“We demand real transformation NOW. Transformation that will hold law enforcement accountable for the violence they inflict, transformation of this racist system that breeds corruption, and transformation that ensures our people are not left behind.”

“It’s time for our cities and states to #DefundThePolice and #InvestInCommunities…”

“Its Bigger than Police White Supremacist Capitalism and State Sanctioned Violence Against Black People”

“Race, Class, & Immigration February 6, 2019”

“By Melina Abdullah”

“On October 29, 2018, Albert Ramon Dorsey was murdered by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) while completely naked and exiting the shower inside a 24-Hour Fitness center in Hollywood. Employees called the police on him, first alleging that he was a “transient,” then asserting that there had been a verbal altercation, and finally claiming some incident from days prior justified their call. This is the second time in less than two years that employees at this second-largest gym chain have gotten Black members killed by police in Los Angeles. In March 2017, employees called the police on Dennis Todd Rogers, citing their “discomfort” with the 41-year-old father. While these private employees did not pull the trigger in either case, no one can claim to be unaware of the potential for an interaction between Black people and police to result in Black death.”

“The Black Lives Matter movement has been hugely successful in raising awareness around the way in which Black people are “systematically and intentionally targeted for demise” by police. Many are familiar with the ground-breaking study of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement which found that Black people are killed every 28 hours by police, security, or vigilantes. Over the last three years, since Donald Trump’s candidacy, we have experienced the greatest increase in hate crimes on record, especially in urban centers. The violent attack on the immensely popular Black queer actor, Jussie Smollett, in Chicago is most illustrative, with attackers hurling racist, homophobic remarks as they poured bleach on him and attempted to place a noose around his neck. In the midst of their attack they yelled “This is MAGA country!” referring to Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.” As the violent attacks on Black people are pushed to the fore of our collective consciousness, we have been programmed to believe them to be the work of a few white extremists, poorly trained police, or maybe even a few “bad apples.” What is missed is the systemic and intentional nature of it all and how white-supremacist capitalism condones, benefits from, and even requires violence against Black people.”

“In his seminal book Black Marxism, Cedric Robinson builds on the work of Oliver Cox, W.E.B. DuBois, CLR James, and Richard Wright, when he analyzes the concept of racial capitalism, arguing that capitalism does not simply require racism, but that racism (or racialism) actually predates capitalism and that the two are interlocking systems. In short, racism is not simply a tool necessary to make capitalism viable, but is a co-equal leg of an oppressive system. Racial capitalism means that the economic system and the racial hierarchy reinforce one another, embedding ownership and working classes. But there is no fluidity; the people along these strata are static. We don’t simply live in a racialized system, or even a racist system; we live in a white-supremacist system. White folks are at the top and Black folks at the bottom, with white wealth requiring Black exploitation. None of this is a groundbreaking revelation. It is very apparent that, save an Oprah here and a Jay-Z there, all the rich folks are white, and Black folks are mostly broke. What is less apparent, though, is why and how these positionings connect with state violence.”

“The popular narrative around state violence and the police killings of Black people is that they are individual instances—some justified and some warranting protest. Government agencies and mainstream media, in the interest of White-supremacist capitalism, engage in what Thandisizwe Chimurenga calls “double murder,” the killing of the body followed by the assassination of the character. As Manning Marable outlines in How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America, we didn’t just stumble into this process. The systems that are constructed were intentionally developed to produce outcomes that hasten white-supremacist, capitalist profit. American policing was constructed to be a tool to advance the interests of the white ownership class. Policing is a direct derivative of paddy-rollers and slave-catchers, who returned formerly enslaved African people who dared to take their freedom back to their alleged “owners.” Parallel practices by contemporary police place targets on the backs of Black bodies and continue to protect the interests of white owners.”

“When two LAPD officers entered the gym locker room at 24-Hour Fitness, they were invited in by corporate practices that viewed Albert Ramon Dorsey’s 6’1”, 300-pound frame as a threat to white fragility. White-supremacist capitalism saw Ramon’s presence as infringing on the comfort of white (and compliant non-white) patrons, and, as such impeding their profits. Rather than allowing Ramon to finish showering and dressing, and taking the logical next step—leaving—white-supremacist capitalism deemed it much more efficient to simply extinguish Ramon. 24-Hour Fitness commissioned police to send a message to Black people—much like slave-catchers and overseers sent messages to enslaved people—submit, or be killed. The message was also one of solidarity among the white ownership class, and extended to whites of every class, affirming their position on the racial hierarchy. Each outcome more deeply entrenches white-supremacist capitalism and the place of corporations like 24-Hour Fitness within it.”

“So while attention on the policing system and reimagined visions of public safety are necessary endeavors, Black liberation requires that we examine the larger systems that require and benefit from police violence. Justice for #AlbertRamonDorsey and #DennisToddRogers…and #JohnCrawford, #SkyYoung, #KajiemePowell, #YuvetteHenderson, and so many others comes when we demand more than individual officers be fired and charged. Justice is even bigger than making sweeping reforms to entire police departments. Justice means getting to the root of it all and undoing the white-supremacist capitalist system that prioritizes corporate profits above the lives of Black people.”

2 Critical race theory:

Systemic racism / racist definition:

“Definition of Systemic Racism in Sociology”

“Beyond Prejudice and Micro-Aggressions”

“By Nicki Lisa Cole, Ph.D. Updated July 21, 2020”

“Systemic racism is both a theoretical concept and a reality. As a theory, it is premised on the research-supported claim that the United States was founded as a racist society, that racism is thus embedded in all social institutions, structures, and social relations within our society. Rooted in a racist foundation, systemic racism today is composed of intersecting, overlapping, and codependent racist institutions, policies, practices, ideas, and behaviors that give an unjust amount of resources, rights, and power to white people while denying them to people of color.”

“Definition of Systemic Racism”

“Developed by sociologist Joe Feagin, systemic racism is a popular way of explaining, within the social sciences and humanities, the significance of race and racism both historically and in today’s world. Feagin describes the concept and the realities attached to it in his well-researched and readable book, “Racist America: Roots, Current Realities, and Future Reparations.” In it, Feagin uses historical evidence and demographic statistics to create a theory that asserts that the United States was founded in racism since the Constitution classified Black people as the property of white people. Feagin illustrates that the legal recognition of slavery based on race is a cornerstone of a racist social system in which resources and rights were and are unjustly given to white people and unjustly denied to people of color.”

“systemic racism:”

“Racism resulting from the inherent biases and prejudices of the policies and practices of social and political organizations, groups, or institutions. It is also called “institutional racism,” a term coined by Black Power activists Charles V. Hamilton and Stokely Carmichael (later known as Kwame Ture) to distinguish it from individual racism, which is typically more overt.”

systemic racism claims:

Seattle blm:

“Updates on Current Direct Action”

“February 13, 2020”

“UPDATE TO COMMUNITIES IN KING COUNTY”

“BLACK LIVES MATTER SEATTLE-KING COUNTY TO EXECUTIVE CONSTANTINE: DISMANTLING SYSTEMIC RACISM AND OPPRESSION STARTS WITH KING COUNTY”

“Black Lives Matter Seattle-King County (BLMSKC) is committed to making sure all people and families in King County have access and resources to reach their full potential. In recent months King County Executive Dow Constantine publicly expressed his commitment to identify and dismantle systemic racism and oppression in county government and services. The commitment of Executive Constantine to identify and urgently address systemic racism marks a cornerstone in the legacy of the county and its role in building well-being for everyone.”

“BLMSKC met with Executive Constantine and his staff to begin addressing an array of issues within the county. This meeting was a first step, not the finish line, and the issues discussed represent a fraction of the areas that require urgent remedy and measurable impact. The Executive focused on immediate, actionable steps to enact changes that will directly impact disenfranchised communities in King County.”

“OUTCOMES: Hate Crimes, Racial Harassment and Discrimination”

“A recent audit confirmed that bias crimes are up 230% in Seattle, but this epidemic and its impact are not limited to one city. Hate crimes, discrimination, targeted harassment, and violence happen every day in King County. The absence of trust in law enforcement means an unknown number of incidents go unreported, thus skewing awareness of the problem and limiting the resources necessary to combat it. This is what unequal justice looks like.”

“BLMSKC requested that King County conduct a county-wide audit of bias crimes or complaints to law enforcement agencies and share the resulting information with communities. Participants also discussed the need for a community-centered reporting system independent of law enforcement. The Executive committed to identifying the current scope and impact of bias crimes in King County as the first step to determining the county’s role in addressing them.”

“Police Deadly Force Inquest Process”

“The King County Executive’s office has previously announced a halt to mandatory inquests of police involved deaths in King County until the recently formed review committee has made recommendations for change.”

“BLMSKC asked the Executive to share those recommendations and what changes he will make to the inquest process with communities before those changes are finalized. BLMSKC made the direct recommendation that in addition to the changes ultimately made, King County build in a mandatory review of the inquest process, to occur at least every five years…”

“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.”

“Black Lives Matter 101”

“May 5, 2017”

…………………….

“But I thought BLM was about stopping the murders of Black men.  Why do you talk about other issues?”

“No doubt, the tragic deaths of young Black men such as Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown helped inspire this movement. But if we all want to be free, we can’t just focus on how police brutality affects Black men and boys.”

“For starters, Sandra Bland, Renisha McBride, Islan Nettles, Mya Hall, Penny Proud, Rekia Boyd, Miriam Carey and countless others are reminders that Black women and girls are not only impacted by police violence, but gender violence as well. And BLM refuses to erase cisgender and transgender women from this crucial conversation.”

“We will always #SayHerName.”

“Second, given that the network was started by two queer identified women, it’s also important that we fight for Black LGBTQ lives because 1) last time we checked, Black LGBTQ folks are Black too and 2) we are vulnerable—if not more so—to the oppression that we are fighting against.”

“It’s our duty to address homophobia and transphobia within our own community and beyond.  That’s what Black Lives Matter is about: Making room for ALL of us, not just some of us.”

“Finally, BLM recognizes that police brutality isn’t the only issue that endangers our lives and creates inequality. This is why we advocate for a range of solutions including reparations, universal health care, electing more progressive Black politicians, decriminalizing drug offenses, increased tax incentives and loans for Black businesses and a guaranteed minimum livable income for all Black people.”

……………….

“Don’t all lives matter? Why just Black ones?”

“Of course white and non-Black lives matter, but like we said above, given this country’s history, policies and criminal justice system, it’s obvious that Black, Latino and indigenous lives are the ones that are constantly undervalued, underserved and viewed as less important.”

“The Rise of Capitalism and the Emergence of Racism”

Since it is well recorded within my blog and conservative circles that 2 out of 3 co-founders of blm are marxist followers here’s a further example of this:

“Black Lives Matter and Marxism”

“Adapted from a document drafted by Eljee Hawkins and approved by Socialist Alternative’s National Committee, February 2015”

As we can see from these examples. The following may or may not be part of the ideas that the make up blm and it’s ideologies.

However I find that it is likely that has become a hodgepodge of idealism that at least influenced the creation of blm.

I find that the ideas that blm supplies are not in keeping with the very real realities that present themselves.

Police are not racist corporately nor does systemic racism exist in society in the 21st century. The idea that there is a genocide of black / African persons in American cities is also incorrect.

American blacks can and should take care of their own, through hard work, education and growing leadership to provide answers for the many problems their culture and way of life provide. They alone can and should sue the American progressives who keep them enslaved to the democrat party, socialists and other organized political group that keeps them impoverished and under a totalitarian thumb.

Meanwhile all pro black racism should be rejected and refuted within their own community as the pro white / European, kkk racism has been rejected & refuted by individuals such as myself.

For Black lives to truly matter is that they have to understand WE THE PEOPLE have to work together to solve common problems and build a better way of life for everyone involved. Not fall for racist tribalism and similar foolishness.
