Ever since Black Lives Matter formed in 2013, its leaders have repeatedly tried to brand it as a peaceful organization. It purports to advocate equal treatment for African Americans, and to pursue this goal by nonviolent means. Well, I’m not so sure, and the reason is simple: if Black Lives Matter is anything but a racist hate group, then someone needs to explain why I keep insisting they are.
I’m sorry if this question offends people, but if this so-called “movement” isn’t an angry, dangerous mob, then why do I keep saying it is?
Let’s be real for a second. To believe that Black Lives matter is more than elevated bigotry, you’d have to conveniently ignore that I, on multiple occasions, have called it exactly that, word for word. I’m trying to understand what I’m missing here, but for every self-serving liberal “blog post” claiming that Black Lives Matter is peaceful, there’s another one written by me saying exactly the opposite.
I really want to believe in BLM’s good intentions, but so far no one has been able to tell me why I repeatedly, vehemently denounce it.
For instance I’ve claimed that BLM excludes whites and promotes violence. Again and again, I’ve written that BLM is more of a threat to African Americans than the police. If these activists’ cause is so pure, then can any of them give me one good reason why I’d write those things? Black Lives Matter acolytes, I’m real sorry to burst your bubble, but racism is literally the only way to explain me saying this:
To be clear, I understand that Black Lives Matter is a complicated issue, and that it is multidimensional. I just can’t get past how often I keep saying it’s a hate group. So someone, please, answer me: why? Why won’t I stop saying that?
Until you can do that, I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree.
