Step 1 is to understand that Black Lives Matter is a slogan, which, if taken literally, is legitimate and sensible. However there is another “Black Lives Matter”, now calling itself Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. It is reported by Influence Watch to be under the financial, organizational sponsorship of Thousand Currents, with a 2019 financial statement available here. Its various associated tentacles are funded by a collection of left wing organizations, including George Soros’ Democracy Alliance. BLM Global Network Foundation, in turn, currently has an “Act Blue” fundraising mechanism which is raising funds for unspecified purposes, that this author hasn’t the time to track. The Corporate Black Lives Matter was founded by “trained marxists”. That’s not something that righties made up. Cofounder, Patrisse Cullors said it herself, in an Interview with Jared Ball of Real News, which is still on You Tube for now. In case the link breaks, here’s her quote. “The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular are trained organizers.” “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk.” Will a Marxist economic system help Black people to prosper? History is littered with severe failures.
Another current ideology of the BLM Corporation is as follows: “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.” Note that Fathers are not a part of this, and, as we observe, that trend of eliminating fatherhood, and breaking down family structure has not been working out so well. The strong nuclear family structure is not “Western”. It’s been really huge around the world for millennia, and is taught and fostered by the world’s major religions. BLM Corporation is now being rejected by many Black Americans as falsely co-opting their issues with cops who decided to kill George Floyd after he had been detained. They note an unusual number of White millennial leftists within the movement, and, no matter what the media says, common sense tells them that something is wrong with this picture. Notably, some left leaning Black Liberation groups, such as this one in Cincinnati, are walking away from BLM.
You will NOT see the following illustration of the problem with dissolving nuclear families in the national news. In Clark County, Ohio, Isaiah Jackson is being investigated for posting a picture of himself kneeling on a toddler’s neck with the caption “BLM now mf”. He’s reported to now be in custody on a parole violation. Isaiah was said to be dating the child’s mother. The child is now removed to the care of his grandmother and biological father, and reportedly the mother will not be able to visit without supervision. Interactions on social media ensued after this picture was posted, and one of note comes from a special ed teacher in Atlanta, Brian Papin, who commented that Isaiah should have finished the job. “Again! Your doing it wrong! One knee on the center of the back one one the neck and lean into it until death! You saw the video! Get it right or stop f***ing around!” Even if he is being sarcastic, it really doesn’t work when attached to the picture of Isaiah kneeling on his girlfriend’s toddler’s neck.
This social feature is brought to you by Disruption of the Nuclear Family, which is now stated as a primary value of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. Statistics bear out that temporary partners and even step parents perform much worse with kids than do their biological parents. Had mommie and daddie gotten married, made a baby and stayed together, the chances of this kind of incident occurring would have been vastly diminished.
