We hear and see this hashtag, #BlackLivesMatter, everywhere today. Has anyone ever wondered just who established this group and why? Many people probably have not looked into the background or into where the money for such a wild array of name-calling comes from and what the real reason behind it is.
Curious, we began to dig into this group and found a number of things that just did not seem to make much sense by themselves—but, when added together with the ideology of the group, it all shows a group that is not interested in how many blacks are killed, but, rather, what they can do to change the outcome of some of those held in prison. This group was formed after the acquittal of George Zimmerman, whom they called the "white Hispanic," who has been tried for murder and manslaughter of Trayvon Martin. The 3 people that organized this group were:
"Born in 1981, Alicia Garza is a self-described "queer" social-justice activist who, from 2009-14, served as executive director of the San Francisco-based People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER), a group aiming to "secur[e] living wage employment, job security, affordable housing, and community services" for low-income black and Latino families. Garza boasts that under her leadership, POWER successfully "beat back regressive local policies targeting undocumented people," "organized against the chronic police violence in Black neighborhoods," and "shed light on the ongoing wave of profit-driven development" that was allegedly harming poor minorities in San Francisco."
"A self-described "artist, organizer and freedom fighter" who seeks to reform America's allegedly racist jail-and-prison system, Patrisse Cullors was born in Los Angeles in 1984. When she was a child, her father was incarcerated numerous times for drug offenses. Miss Cullors says that at age 16 she "came out as queer," "was kicked out of home," and subsequently formed close connections with "a bunch of other young queer women of color" who, like her, were dealing with the challenges of "poverty [and] being black and brown in the USA."
"Born in 1984 to parents who had immigrated illegally from Nigeria to the U.S. during the previous year, Opal Tometi grew up in Phoenix and attended the Universty of Arizona-Tucson, where she earned a BA in history and an MA in communications & advocacy. During her college years, Tometi volunteered for an American Civil Liberties Union project that monitored and reported on the activities of "vigilantes" who sought to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the United States."
Notice that these ladies were born in the early 1980's. Why is it that no person from an earlier time came forward to organize this group? What is their real objective? Why did they really do this? These are questions no one has been brave enough to ask, so we will have to dive into this and see where it goes from here. Let us first look to see what may be a common dominator to them.
The First 2, Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors, are openly homosexual, and they seem not to be concerned with calling themselves "queer." The 3rd lady, Opal Tometi, is a child of illegal (criminal, because they broke the law of the land) parents from Nigeria. Tometi worked with none other than the American Civil Liberties Union. Garza and Cullors are from Los Angeles, and Tometi is from Arizona.
Before we briefly look into the founders' backgrounds, let us look at BLM and see what they represent.
It seems that this group grew, and not just after the Zimmerman trail. They rallied around some people who were later found to be totally wrong, such Micheal Brown, the criminal who charged at the policeman, after making an attempt to take his gun. But their ideology does not meander into the question of why so many blacks have been killed by other blacks or why 90,000 black babies have been killed by Planned Parenthood—no, those ideas do not resonate as much as do the ideas of white people killing poor and very questionable innocent black people. They rally around the Socialist/Communist cry of "Racism" to make their argument seem like it is true because it has to be; after all, they are black and the people they claim did extreme harm are white—but only in a few instances. They never bring up a rally against black-on-black murder, especially in towns like Chicago, where black-on-black crime continues to rise.
"Black Lives Matter" became a rallying cry for writers, public speakers, celebrities, demonstrators, and even rioters who took up the cause of demanding an end to what BLM terms the "virulent anti-Black racism" that "permeates our society." Demanding that Americans "abandon the lie that the deep psychological wounds of slavery, racism and structural oppression are figments of the Black imagination," BLM aims to force the country to become "uncomfortable about institutional racism."
The piece shown above is very similar to what many Marxists/Communists/Socialists push forward to move a nation from freedom to serfdom. We do have a list of what this group wants to do, and it is not a very pretty list at all.
"Though BLM professes to articulate the needs and grievances of black people as a whole, the organization deems it vital to go "beyond the narrow nationalism" that "merely" urges black people to "love Black, live Black, and buy Black." That is, it focuses an added measure of attention on those blacks who, in the past, "have been marginalized within Black liberation movements." These include, most notably, black "queer and trans," who "bear a unique burden from a hetero-patriarchal society that disposes of us like garbage and simultaneously fetishizes us and profits off of us"; black "undocumented immigrants" who are "relegated to the shadows" of American society; black "disabled" people who "bear the burden of state-sponsored Darwinian experiments that attempt to squeeze us into boxes of normality defined by white supremacy"; and blacks who self-identify along non-traditional points of the "gender spectrum."
This is part of an agenda that even Obama supports, which is the aim of making the groups that were not favored before 2009 to be looked at and respected, even if they do not hold the religious ideology of the majority. The real agenda, as spelled out by BLM, very closely resembles the Black Panthers in that they just wish to kill all the white people.
"To improve the allegedly abysmal condition of blacks in the United States, BLM has issued a series of non-negotiable demands. These include:
- "an end to all forms of discrimination and the full recognition of our [Blacks'] human rights";
- "an immediate end to police brutality and [to] the murder of Black people and all oppressed people";
- "full, living-wage employment for our people," to ensure "our right to a life with dignity";
- "decent housing" and "an end to gentrification";
- the cessation of racially "discriminatory discipline practices" in the schools;
- "an end to the school-to-prison pipeline," a term for the practice of using black students' behavioral problems as an excuse for pushing them out of the classroom and into the juvenile- and criminal-justice systems;
- "quality education for all," including "free or affordable public university" enrollment;
- "freedom from mass incarceration and an end to the prison industrial complex," whose hallmarks include "the over-policing and surveillance of [black] communities," the enactment of many "racist laws," and "the warehousing of black people";
- "access to affordable healthy food for our neighborhoods";
- "an aggressive attack against all laws, policies, and entities that disenfranchise any community from expressing themselves at the ballot" (e.g., Voter ID laws);
- "a public education system that teaches the rich history of Black people";
- "the release of all U.S. political prisoners";
- "an end to the military industrial complex that incentivizes private corporations to profit off of the death and destruction of Black and Brown communities across the globe";
- a comprehensive Justice Department review of "systematic abuses by police departments" across the United States;
- congressional hearings investigating "the criminalization of communities of color";
- an end to "the use of profiling on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin or religion by law-enforcement agencies";
- the implementation of a National Plan of Action for Racial Justice by the Obama Administration, addressing "persistent and ongoing forms of racial discrimination and disparities that exist in nearly every sphere of life";
- the release, by the office of U.S. attorney general, of "the names of all [police] officers involved in killing black people within the last five years … so they can be brought to justice—if they haven't already"; and
- "a decrease in law-enforcement spending at the local, state and federal levels and a reinvestment [through the federal government] of that budgeted money into the black communities most devastated by poverty in order to create jobs, housing and schools."
Several of the foregoing demands are clearly modeled on those that were put forth by the Black Panther Party in the 1960s. As with the Panthers, the key "demand" is for war against the police; the rest are window dressing."
Yes, perhaps the ladies just looked up the Black Panthers' line of thinking and reworded it?
"In October 1966, Huey P. Newton turned his Oakland, California street gang into the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense. His co-founders in this endeavor were Elbert Howard, Reggie Forte, Sherman Forte, Bobby Seale, and Little Bobby Hutton. The following year, Newton shortened the group's name to, simply, the Black Panther Party (BPP).
To define BPP's mission, Newton wrote a ten-point program consisting of the following items:
1. We Want Freedom. We Want Power To Determine The Destiny Of Our Black Community.
2. We Want Full Employment For Our People.
3. We Want An End To The Robbery By The Capitalists Of Our Black Community.
4. We Want Decent Housing Fit For The Shelter Of Human Beings.
5. We Want Education For Our People That Exposes The True Nature Of This Decadent American Society. We Want Education That Teaches Us Our True History And Our Role In The Present-Day Society.
6. We Want All Black Men To Be Exempt From Military Service.
7. We Want An Immediate End To Police Brutality And Murder Of Black People.
8. We Want Freedom For All Black Men Held In Federal, State, County And City Prisons And Jails.
9. We Want All Black People When Brought To Trial To Be Tried In Court By A Jury Of Their Peer Group Or People From Their Black Communities, As Defined By The Constitution Of The United States.
10. We Want Land, Bread, Housing, Education, Clothing, Justice And Peace.
Among the key elements contained in the foregoing ten points are the following:
- "The federal government is responsible and obligated to give every man employment or a guaranteed income."
- "This racist government has robbed us [blacks], and now we are demanding the overdue debt of forty acres and two mules."
- "If the White Landlords will not give decent housing to our Black community, then the housing and the land should be made into cooperatives so that our community, with government aid, can build and make decent housing for its people."
- Education should "expos[e] the true nature of this decadent American society."
- "Black people should not be forced to fight in the military service to defend a racist government that does not protect us."
- "All Black people should be released from the many jails and prisons because they have not received a fair and impartial trial."
- "All Black people should arm themselves for self-defense."
In December 1966, seven black militant groups, including BPP's New York contingent, met at the headquarters of the Institute For Policy Studies. There, Panther "minister of culture" Emory Douglas stated:
"The only way to make this racist U.S. government administer justice to the people it is oppressing, is ... by taking up arms against this government, killing the officials, until the reactionary forces ... are dead, and those that are left turn their weapons on their superiors ... thereby passing revolutionary judgment against the number one enemy of all mankind, the racist U.S. government.'""
 Steven Powell, Covert Cadre: Inside The Institute For Policy Studies (Green Hill Publishers, 1987), p. 30."
(Just a note on the 40 acres and 2 mules, the Government did not make that offer, it was a joke by General Sherman, as he made his march to the sea and was asked by blacks what he was going to do. Sherman replied, "Maybe I'll give you 40 acres and a mule," as a sly remark to them as he burned the bridges to keep them from following him. The rest is how it has been turned around.)
This is not about justice for those killed while doing wrong: it is about forcing an idea to push a racist bias towards a society that was doing well and making advances before the 2009 elections that placed Obama in the White House to spew his racist hate. Read about this in one of my previous articles. Obama has done more to promote a racial divide than has any other President, and the #BlackLivesMatter are doing just what Obama wants them to do. Obama's dream is to have political disruption so he can declare Martial Law and remain President for as long as he likes. Obama mentioned the idea to have a "Communist Style revolution" while he studied "Marxism" at Occidental College (See here).
We have shown just a small portion of the #BlackLivesMatter, and we have not gone into the funding of their group, nor into possible Socialist/Communist Organization links to them. We will display that in a future article.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
