BLM is clearly a marxist revolutionary movement operating under false pretext of caring about black lives. Let's start with basic facts. What are the biggest issues facing blacks? 1. black on black homicide. 7 thousand blacks killed each other last year. Blacks commit over 50% of the homicide yet they are only 13% of population 2. Breakdown in the family and culture. Fathers absent from households (this has tripled since 60s). Parents doing a horrendous job installing right values in children 3. Lack of good education WAY down the list = cops. Only 10 unarmed black people were killed by police last year, many more cops were killed by black people than cops killed unarmed black people. Calls for defunding police and attack on cops are actually impacting black live negatively - Murders are up, more blacks getting killed. BLM is actually having the opposite effect than they claim is the effect they want. So, clearly, BLM doesn't really care about black lives. This is nothing more than a marxist revolutionary movement wanting to destroy capitalism, re-shape society into a socialist/communist way of life where those at the top are targeted. Mixed with marxist ideology is profiteering, blacks who seek to use black lives to make profit. Al Sharpton is a prime example, he will attend funerals of people like Mike Brown (a thug who even Obama DOJ found to have been in wrongdoing) but doesn't care about the innocent people (some of them little girls and boys) gunned down by thugs, all the time. The evidence is plentiful 1. Defund police. This is detrimental for black lives, as we have seen in recent months where murders and shootings have skyrocketed (more black lives lost). Defunding police is about attacking law and order so that the marxists are more free to disrupt, take control, even commit crime at will 2. Bring down statues and erase history. America was based on free market capitalism, by erasing history, a new history can be formed - a new world order based on Marxist ideology. When we see even Lincoln and monuments celebrating emancipation being targeted, it is a clear sign this is a violent marxist revolt. Lincoln was a republican, the fact that he freed slaves means nothing to BLM, he represents capitalism and conservatism, an enemy of a marxist 3. An all out assault on the people in power (the rich, especially whites) and conservatives. Clearly, all to do with Marxist ideology and nothing to do with black lives BLM is NOT ABOUT BLACK LIVES... this is not even debatable on the facts. It's about bad people like Al Sharpton seeking to profit and marxists wanting to tear down the capitalist system, all cleverly covered under the 'BLM' pretext. See, they cannot call themselves 'Marxists' or 'communists' as they wouldn't receive any sponsors and they would be vilified. By calling themselves BLM, they can put critics on the defense by accusing them of racism! Cowards are letting BLM intimidate them and taking a knee to them, this dangerous ideology must be stopped. I plead with people to be more courageous and call this movement out for what it really is, we cannot allow this Country to succumb to communism.
