Do I support Black Lives Matter? Well, that’s a loaded question. And despite all that we’ve seen over the past few years, it’s one that still gets asked. My answer?
Do I support the organization called Black Lives Matter? Absolutely not. They are a communist terror group, hell bent on destroying America and the family (you can read about that on their website).
In 2015, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors described both herself and her fellow organizers as “trained Marxists.” Cullors’ 2018 book, “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir,” explains her introduction to Marxism.
They also traffick in lies, with one of the most prominent being that racism alone explains why an outsized number of blacks get killed by police officers. According to the FBI, almost 38 percent of cop killers are black–despite blacks making up just 13 percent of the population. In other words, the main reason why black suspects disproportionately get killed by the police is that they disproportionately try to kill the police.
While unjustified police shootings do happen, it’s not clear how much of a role racism plays, as a 2015 DOJ report on Philadelphia’s police department found that black cops were more likely to pull the trigger.

Do I support the movement of Black Lives Matter? Again, no. I do not believe in racial supremacy for ANY race, which is what the movement seeks to advance. What’s more, anti-black systemic racism does not exist today and white privilege is a racist myth. I will never condone the soft bigotry of low expectations or advance critical race theory.
Do I support the concept of black lives mattering? UNEQUIVOCALLY YES. Because if all lives matter, then it stands to reason that black lives MUST matter. Further, it’s perfectly acceptable to focus on problems that the black community disproportionately faces.
In fact, policies regarding school choice and promoting traditional family values, as well as a strong economy offering ample work opportunities (something Trump accomplished prior to COVID) would do more to address the major problems in the black community than leftist “solutions” ever could.
The number one plague for the black community is abortion. Not that BLM cares, as their fundraising partner Act Blue also raises money for Planned Parenthood and NARAL. Anyone who claims to value black lives and yet chooses to collaborate with them is a liar.
The number two threat is criminal violence, as homicide is the leading cause of death for black men under 45.
Not that males are the only ones at risk: an eight-year-old black girl was murdered in Atlanta recently after her mother drove past a BLM protest, and she's far from being the only child to catch a bullet. Sadly, cases like those will only grow more common as police are defunded and told by Democrat politicians to stand down; it's up to the rest of us to push back.
While we're at it, we can demand choice in education instead of union-protected teachers and anarchic public schools.
By and large, problems don't get fixed until people rise above their circumstances--no matter their skin color. What doesn't help is promoting a mindset of victimhood, grievance, and blame shifting. But until BLM and their Democrat enablers are defeated, those are exactly the things that we're going to see more of.
