This short summary is to address the White House petition to label Back Lives Matter a terrorist organization.
It had been a while since I reviewed the Mission Statement of Black Lives Matter, and I took a few minutes to read it. I find it just as disjointed, convoluted, and without intellectual or historical perspective as I did in 2013.
These young people have co-opted and exploited a socio-political theme to fit their self-centered definition of Blacks Lives Matters. I think many Blacks would find their mission statement offensive and without merit, or substance on many levels. I think their manifesto is racist, instead of addressing the real issue and facts. Black males need to stop killing Blacks in their communities. Blacks need to commit to protect their children, families, and property by any means necessary because Democrat officials have not and will provide a decent quality of life for their Black citizens.
The Black Lives Matter organization and movement has not committed any terrorist acts to date and they denounced violence, and shooting police officers (a departure from previous chants) last week. I do not think they should be labeled a terrorist organization at this time. However, the Ku Klux Klan, is not labeled a terrorist group, and last week was granted the privileged of adopting a highway by the court. Really! The KKK, is a hate group that has been committed to killing and lynching Blacks, Whites and Jews for decades. The KKK is not a civic, or social club, but they are treated as such by MSM, and the legal system. It is an abomination and disgrace to the country to have this group considered a legitimate law-abiding organization, no wonder Americans are angry about the direction this country is going. We can include several white supremacist groups that have perpetrated violence toward our fellow citizens.
I used to state emphatically every night, five nights a week, at WVON 1960, on the Southside of Chicago, that I was not scared of a White man in sheet pulling up next to my car and shooting me, it was the baby face, hoodie wearing, young Black male that was the threat to my existence and getting home safely.
The Black Lives Matter movement mission statement is clear it was founded in response to Trayvon Martin’s death and George Zimmerman’s acquittal. Well, we know that George violated all the tenets of Neighborhood Watch and ignored police directions to stop following Trayvon. However, when I was Trayvon’s age (17 years old) and strange people were trying to interact with me, my instinct and instruction was to flee to the nearest neighbor’s house or to evade them and had home to my parents. It still is unclear to me how Trayvon and George got close enough to have a fist fight. A boy confronting a man, that is a perplexing, and difficult situation for me to comprehend.
If Black Lives Matter was concerned about Black lives, then why haven’t they demanded that the daily quality of life issues be addressed by the Congressional Black Caucus. Why hasn’t the CBC called for President Obama to send federal funds to eradicate the criminal gangs, which have functioned as domestic “Urban Terrorists”, and held Black communities’ hostage since the 1950’s in major urban cities controlled by Democrats. Blacks school children are being/have been killed within four blocks of The First Family’s Chicago, Kenwood home on Greenwood.
The CBC has the audacity to conduct a sophomoric Civil Rights Movement era sit-in on the floor of the House of Representatives, was a charade and farce. These people are Congressmen, elected federal officials, not college students in the South, and the kicker is this is 2016, not 1966. Every CBC members district has a third-world development, war zone like component that is the creation of Blacks and Democrats. If we can defeat terrorists aboard we can defeat and eradicate them from the Congressional districts the Congressional Black Caucus.
If Black Lives Matter let’s start with the eradication of the criminal and terrorist element that has turned every residential community in an urban city in America, that is majority Black and working class, into a living hell. These areas are devoid of the basic quality of life environments and government services afforded other tax paying citizens of the same ilk.
