BLM was nothing to do with the helping the blacks and other minority groups.
The are just a modern day Antifa but with ethicality brought in to the mix
All you have to do is look at the leaders self confessed marxists who funnel money out of the groups and become multimillionaire property owners. A large chunk of the blm base are white and they riot usually in low socially economic areas

As I said, not a fan of the organisation.

Black Lives Matter was a SPECIFIC reaction to police violence against the African American community. I do agree that here is definitely scope to address the larger issue of crime rates among the lower rungs of the United States' socio-economic ladder... but that might mean exploring at least some of the tenets of filthy stinking SOCIALISM wouldn't it?

Those higher up the ladder can't have that, can they?

Apparently the shooters chat logs are more illuminating than his manifesto

From the World Socialist Website:
"The facts that have emerged demonstrate that Black Lives Matter is largely a creation of the corporate media and the Democratic Party, not a genuine expression of insurgent popular opposition to the pervasive brutality and social inequality of American society. The revelations illustrate the venal and privileged social layers whose interests are expressed by the elevation of race, rather than class, as the essential dividing line in society."

The list of insider payouts is quite interesting in the article...

Looks like there is confusion about what "BLM" is, what BLM foundations are. Hopefully this can help.

"Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation is probably the central Black Lives Matter organization. It claims Garza, Cullors, and Tometi as co-founders and operates the BlackLivesMatter.com website."

But BLM is showing signs of getting its house in order.

"Jacob Harold, a nonprofit expert, said he was struck in particular by the number of paid employees listed on the form, which was just two, versus the number of volunteers, which was 49,275. “That ratio pretty much tells the story right there,” Mr. Harold said. Two paid staff members would rarely be enough to manage a $90 million organization. “This 990 tells a story of weak nonprofit governance,” he said.

Justin Hansford, a professor at the Howard University School of Law, said the stakes were high because the public could not always differentiate between the Black Lives Matter movement and one specific organization. “It’s extremely important to have transparency and good governance at any organization with this level of global fame,” said Mr. Hansford, who is also executive director of the Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center. “The credibility of the entire movement is at stake based on these choices, for better or worse.”

But he added, “They deserve a little grace here. As protesters suddenly given a windfall of money, they had to learn how to manage a large nonprofit on the fly, and it’s a lot to ask.” "

"Noone wants to hear about a black child dying in the community" 5.40
"Everybody talks about these communities, noone talks to them" 6.20

Alternatives to BLM.

They are "offmessage", and support strong police involvement in communities (as do 80% of Americans living in these communities).

They don't beleive racism is the biggest issue facing black communities (60%).

"We need to address the devil within. We are killing our children, not white police"
6.50.

Really?
Yes, really. Have a listen if you dare.
ROAR!

There'll be a gofundme shortly, gotta monetise it.

They've been around for a while....but struggling to get any traction. Organized mass protests all around the US last year and nobody turned up.

Worked much better when they could grift the pandemic freedums types in to giving them money.

I think their problem is that they are seen as nothing more than the KKK by a different name.
Every so often you will see news from some small town in the US where the WLM dudes have tried to recruit locals to the cause without much success....they usually target creepy places like playgrounds to hand out flyers and the like.

Pretty hard to differentiate yourself from those groups when you're running a similar advertising spiel I imagine.

School mums are well known for loving insistent white dudes hanging out around playgrounds by themselves.

There has been many instances reported of stickers promoting WLM being placed on play equipment as a precursor to the creeps rocking up to the playground to attempt to recruit for their cause. Needless to say the stickers were not well received.
