The phrase “Black Lives Matter” is a truism doubling as the name of an organization. The simple statement that, “black lives matter” is universally understood and accepted. The phrase becomes tortured when it is also used as the name of a movement. Should one disagree with the tenants of the Black Lives Matter, (BLM) organization, their detractor’s accuse them of believing that black lives don’t matter, an obvious word trap.
Like “Planned Parenthood” or the “Southern Poverty Law Center”, parenthood, poverty and in the case of BLM, black lives take a secondary role in the actual mission of these organizations.
According to BLM documents, their first stated goal is to, “Eradicate White Supremacy.” Eradicate means to “destroy completely”, or “pull out by the roots.” White supremacy only exists in the hearts of white supremacists, actual people. So by definition, in order to eradicate white supremacy, one needs to kill white supremacists. How else could this goal be attained? Maybe re-education camps, like the Chinese use.
The second BLM goal is to, “intervene in violence inflicted on black communities by the state and vigilantes.” This statement requires that the reader accept as true that the, “state and vigilantes” are actually inflicting violence on the black community. Who are these “vigilantes”? How is the “state” raining down this violence? This as an out-and-out lie offered without a shred of evidence. Once this imaginary issue is addressed this will result in, (according to BLM’s words,) “creating space for black imagination and innovation, and centering black joy.”
What in heavens name is black imagination, innovation and black joy? This is nothing but gibberish.
In reading the disjointed and poorly worded BLM statements, only twice do the author(s) assign any responsibility to the black community itself for anything. In the first instance they say, “…we must move beyond the narrow nationalism that is all too prevalent in black communities.” Considering that the black community is not actually a nation, it is left to be guessed what this actually means and no further explanation is offered.
But this is where the BLM movement comes off the rails in terms of staying focused on the mission to which most of their supporters identify.
“We affirm the lives of black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all black lives along the gender spectrum.”
Notice the absence of men but the acceptance of the notion of multiple genders? And herein lies the second admittance of some responsibility within the black community, but clearly directed squarely at the men.
“Our network centers those who have been marginalized within black liberation movements.”
Here we see the tie-in to the past organization of the 60’s, the Black Liberation Movement, and the complaint that it was a male-dominated group. In other words, “Our network centers on those who have been marginalized… namely WOMEN!
The militant trio of misandrist lesbians who run today’s BLM have relegated men not only out of the family, but out of the organization as well. The matriarch is in charge, and they’re pissed off at everyone and everything, but especially black men.
“We are working for a world where black lives are no longer systematically targeted for demise. We affirm our humanity, our contributions to this society, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression.”
“Systematically targeted for demise?… Deadly oppression”? These accusations against society are insultingly racist, bigoted and libelous garbage.
This is the last sentence in their manifesto:
“The call for black lives to matter is a rallying cry for ALL black lives striving for liberation.”
The biggest barriers to the success or “liberation” facing BLM adherents are their own poisonous attitudes and their refusal to assimilate. This misguided subset of the black community needs to stop lying to themselves and take responsibility for their own shortcomings and begin managing their success instead of excusing their failures. The bounty of America and the access to her opportunities are only limited by the artificially constructed barriers erected in the closed minds of people who hate at the expense of embracing and accepting liberation from themselves and the reject of their poisonous assertions.
The larger black community that smartly rejects the anthem of the BLM organization knows better than to embrace the mantle of victimhood when the arms of freedom, self-determination and true liberation are there for the embracing if you simply participate in all that America has to offer.
BLM points its adherents toward the fallacy of victimhood, impossible limitations and the lie that they’re being held back by an outside force. The oppressiveness of this philosophy produces and encourages despair and a culture of congenital hopelessness. The fabulous story of the United State of America rejects this and invites everyone to participate in the continued construction of the greatest achievements the world has ever known, here in the greatest country the world has ever seen.
