BLM in the hood, yo! Folks be gettin’ in the faces of gang bangers saying “stop the violence!”
Naaaah, I’m just kidding. The BLM (Black Lives Matter) movement doesn’t address blacks killing blacks: the leading cause of violent black death in the country. BLM doesn’t address ghetto crime which puts black bodies in the path of police bullets. BLM doesn’t address the connection between the black incarceration-new-Jim-Crow phenomenon and why blacks get in prison in the first place.
BLM is all about evil white supremacy and nothing about black self improvement. Most sane mothers tell their kids “you can’t control other people. All you can control is yourself.” BLM wants a change in others behavior but never talks about change in poor black neighborhoods.
On Larry Wilmore’s “Nightly Show” two out of three panelists were enthralled by BLM, one even claiming the leaders of BLM deserved a Nobel Peace Prize. One poor lone brother said “why don’t we clean up our own house first?” Of course he got booed.
The next time BLM disrupts a progressive candidate’s event, I hope the candidate pulls a Chris Christie and says “until you hold your own accountable, sit down and shut up.”
Now that we’ve lost Bill Cosby as a credible spokesperson, we need someone new to tell black cats to stop killing other black cats and then maybe the “white problem” will get a bit better.
