Lie — Black Lives Matter's purpose is to prevent abuse of African Americans

The Story

Local American police forces are extremely racist. They target people with African ancestry, often beating and sometimes shooting them without cause. African Americans are detained and questioned far more than their proportion of the general population would suggest.

The Black Lives Matter movement was formed to protest this situation and to provide a formal organization to unify all people and groups that feel the same way.

Facts

Racism

Yes, some individual police are racist. Yes, many people are unjustifiably abused. Yes, the abuse is out of proportion to the racial makeup of the general population.

But, while such abuse is out of proportion to the general population, it is not out of proportion to the criminal population. The rate of African Americans that commit violent crime is far greater than the rate for other people. It's politically incorrect to mention this fact, but it really is a fact.

As a proportion of the racial makeup of all violent criminals, the number of detentions, beatings, and killings by police is actually less, not more, for African Americans. That has been true for a long time. And, due to social and political pressure, it is becoming more and more true, as many police are now avoiding approaching African American suspects for fear of being called racist. Because of this Ferguson Effect, areas of some cities are becoming enclaves, ruled by the local criminal gangs, where police fear to enter.

Even worse, this politically correct pressure extends far beyond local police forces. In many high-schools it is now no longer permissible to punish students for bad behaviour; doing so is considered systemic racism, as a policy that permits punishment for bad behaviour punishes African Americans disproportionately. (Pause to think about that.) If the privatized prison system weren't so lucrative, we'd perhaps be seeing prisons shut down for having racial disparity among their inmates.

Black Lives Matter

The Black Lives Matter organization does claim to care about African Americans, but that is only one of its many goals. Among its Guiding Principles listed on the BlackLivesMatter.com site, are:

  • We are committed to fostering a queer‐affirming network.
  • We are committed to embracing and making space for trans brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We are committed to being self-reflexive and doing the work required to dismantle cis-gender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.
  • We are committed to dismantling the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work double shifts that require them to mother in private even as they participate in justice work.
  • We are committed to building a Black women affirming space free from sexism, misogyny, and male‐centeredness.
  • We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and villages that collectively care for one another, and especially our children ... .
  • We are committed to practicing empathy; we engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.

If it weren't for the poor quality of the writing, this would read like something from the Communist Manifesto. The three founding members have in fact written something they call a Manifesto in which they refer to themselves as queer Black women.

If you support Black Lives Matter, then you implicitly support homosexuals and transsexuals, believe that males suppress females, believe in destroying the traditional family, and are a comrade of the organization. But if you should choose not to support any of these issues, then obviously you believe that black lives don't matter. You can't win.

Why

BLM is nothing but a communist supported organization, dedicated to the destruction of traditional western society and specializing in issues of race, sexual orientation, and the replacement of family by communal child raising.

Such a fringe group would normally and deservedly be ignored, but their extremely intelligent choice of name and their excellent organization skills and self promotion at the Ferguson protest have made them appear to be something far greater and better than what they really are. The same technique was used following Russia's 1917 revolution. One communist group named itself the Bolshevik (majority) Party, their major competition naïvely followed suit by naming itself the Menshevik (minority) Party, and everyone in the country of course went along with the majority.
