Here is your typical anti-kneeler.

An announcer caught on a hot mic calling a girls' basketball team the N-word blamed the incident on his blood sugar spiking​

"They're kneeling? F--k them," one of the men said, according to the Guardian. "I hope Norman gets their ass kicked."

"I hope they lose. C'mon Midwest City. They're gonna kneel like that? Hell no... F--king n---ers," he continued.

Black Lives Matter St. Paul Founder Says He ‘Resigned’ After Learning the ‘Ugly Truth’​


"A Black Lives Matter chapter founder in Minnesota has resigned, claiming that the organization isn’t concerned about helping black communities or helping improve the education quality in Minneapolis, according to a video published last week.

Rashard Turner, the founder of a Black Lives Matter chapter in neighboring St. Paul, said he started the branch in 2015 but became disillusioned roughly a year after becoming “an insider” within the left-wing organization, according to a video released by TakeCharge—a group that rejects various provisions promoted by Black Lives Matter, including critical race theory-linked claims that the United States is inherently racist.

“After a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis,” Turner said in the video.

“That was made clear when they publicly denounced charter schools alongside the teachers union. I was an insider in Black Lives Matter. And I learned the ugly truth. The moratorium on charter schools does not support rebuilding the black family. But it does create barriers to a better education for black children. I resigned from Black Lives Matter after a year and a half. But I didn’t quit working to improve black lives and access to a great education.”

Representatives for Black Lives Matter didn’t respond to a request for comment by press time.

Approximately a year after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, support for the group has plummeted in the United States, according to a recent poll from Morning Consult. Only 48 percent hold favorable views about the organization, down from 61 percent last May.

A USA Today survey found that 36 percent of Americans now would describe Floyd’s death as a murder, down from 60 percent last summer.

A poll in May conducted by the newspaper revealed that the Black Lives Matter call to “defund the police” has even less support, with only 18 percent of respondents supporting it.

It comes amid recent controversies surrounding Patrisse Cullors, a co-founder of the organization who resigned after a series of reports about her real estate portfolio and finances. Following the reports’ publication last month, Cullors asserted that she didn’t misuse any donations to Black Lives Matter.

In a statement last week, Cullors—a self-described “trained Marxist”—said, “With smart, experienced, and committed people supporting the organization during this transition, I know that BLMGNF is in good hands … The foundation’s agenda remains the same—eradicate white supremacy and build life-affirming institutions.”

Cullors told The Associated Press that her departure was planned more than a year in advance and wasn’t related to the reports about her finances and her multiple homes, claiming they “were right-wing attacks” meant to defame her character."

BLM has always been right up there if with Affirmitive Action programs for me. Fighting racism with racist agendas is not the answer and only intensifies the hatred white bigots have towards minorities. It creates a larger divide rather than lessening it IMO.

"Black Lives Matter" isn't an organization but a world-wide political and social movement similar to the "Civil Rights" and "Black Power" movements of the 1960's and 1970's. Until life gets significantly better for Black people and other minorities in America these kinds of movements are never going away. There are a lot of things about these movements that I have supported over the years, and some things I have not. However, I am always going to support minority movements over the White racist and bigoted movements and organizations that oppose them. I always root for the underdog. That's just who I am.


BLM (Wikipedia)

Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a decentralized political and social movement protesting against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against black people.[1][2][3][4][5] While there are specific organizations such as the Black Lives Matter Global Network that label themselves simply as "Black Lives Matter", the Black Lives Matter movement comprises a broad array of people and organizations.

The slogan "Black Lives Matter" itself remains untrademarked by any group.[6] The broader movement and its related organizations typically advocate against police violence toward black people as well as for various other policy changes considered to be related to black liberation.[7]

In July 2013, the movement began with the use of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin 17 months earlier in February 2012. The movement became nationally recognized for street demonstrations following the 2014 deaths of two African Americans, that of Michael Brown—resulting in protests and unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, a city near St. Louis—and Eric Garner in New York City.[8][9]

Civil Rights Movement (Wikipedia)

The Civil Rights movement in the United States was a decades-long campaign by African Americans and their like-minded allies to end institutionalized racial discrimination, disenfranchisement and racial segregation in the United States. The movement has its origins in the Reconstruction era during the late 19th century, although it made its largest legislative gains in the mid-1960s after years of direct actions and grassroots protests. The social movement's major nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience campaigns eventually secured new protections in federal law for the human rights of all Americans.


Black Power Movement (Wikipedia)

The Black Power movement
was a social movement motivated by a desire for safety and self-sufficiency that was not available inside redlined African American neighborhoods. Black Power activists founded black-owned bookstores, food cooperatives, farms, media, printing presses, schools, clinics and ambulance services.[1][2][3][4][5][6] The international impact of the movement includes the Black Power Revolution in Trinidad and Tobago.[7]

By the late 1960s, Black Power came to represent the demand for more immediate violent action to counter American white supremacy. Most of these ideas were influenced by Malcolm X's criticism of Martin Luther King Jr.'s peaceful protest methods. The 1965 assassination of Malcolm X, coupled with the urban riots of 1964 and 1965, ignited the movement.[8] New organizations that supported Black Power philosophies ranging from socialism to black nationalism, including the Black Panther Party (BPP), grew to prominence.[7]

While black American thinkers such as Robert F. Williams and Malcolm X influenced the early Black Power movement, the Black Panther Party and its views are widely seen as the cornerstone. It was influenced by philosophies such as pan-Africanism, black nationalism and socialism, as well as contemporary events including the Cuban Revolution and the decolonization of Africa.[9]

That’s the million dollar question, Wally, and unfortunately I have the $0.01 answer when it certainly deserves something more worthy. I support equality for all US citizens and severe penal and financial punishment for those who infringe on the civil rights of others.

I support prosperous wealth for those that earn it through hard work, commitment, self sacrifice, education/trade training and personal integrity.

I despise our current welfare system where undeserving, lazy individuals that have no desire to actually work are funded by taxpayers. I despise our current welfare system where hardworking, single parents that desperately want be a part of the workforce can’t secure daycare assistance because those funds are sucked up by the lazy.

I find it disgusting that some of the leaders of BLM used charitable funds for personal gain rather than towards the efforts to make improvements in black communities, especially assisting minority business owners.

As for BLM specifically, I do my best to keep up on current events despite living in the sticks surrounded by fellow rednecks that prefer ATV’s over BMW’s. What I see is a constant barrage of inner city, black on black crimes/murders that continue to decimate these urban communities. At times, that can leave the impression that there is no respect for each other which makes it very difficult for people living outside that bubble to understand the overall message that comes with the slogan. As is with life, if you don’t take yourself seriously, certainly nobody else will, either.

I don’t have a racist bone in my body but that also makes me susceptible to being naive when it comes to certain aspects of nuanced racism...but I’m a willing learner.

Oh...and my Republican Party deserves better than to worship at the slimy, autocratic altar of the world’s biggest douchebag that my buddies and I refer to as Mr. Orange Julius himself.

Me to, especially when they are empowered by the government.

In my mind its my civil right to do with my body as I please, anyone who infringes on that right deserves a bullet to the head.

Muhammad Ali’s son says dad would have hated ‘racist’ Black Lives Matter​

"On the fourth anniversary of his death, Muhammad Ali’s only biological son says that his father would be against Black Lives Matter, calling the movement “racist” and the protesters “devils.”

The legendary boxer and activist stood up against racism throughout his life, but Muhammad Ali Jr. says his dad would have been sickened by how the protests have turned to violence and looting after the death of George Floyd.

“Don’t bust up s–t, don’t trash the place,” he told The Post. “You can peacefully protest.

‘‘My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils.’ My father said, ‘All lives matter.’ I don’t think he’d agree.”

Of the BLM movement, Ali Jr., a Muslim like his father, said: “I think it’s racist.”

“It’s not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone —
he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is,” Ali said during an hour-long interview with The Post.

On police brutality, Ali defended law enforcement in general.

“Police don’t wake up and think, ‘I’m going to kill a n—-r today or kill a white man,'” he said. “They’re just trying to make it back home to their family in one piece.

Speaking of Floyd’s killing at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer, Ali said, “The officer was wrong with killing that person, but people don’t realize there was more footage than what they showed. The guy resisted arrest, the officer was doing his job, but he used the wrong tactic.”

He agrees with President Trump that Antifa fomented violence during the Floyd protests and should be labeled a terrorist organization.

“They’re no different from Muslim terrorists. They should all get what they deserve. They’re f–king up businesses, beating up innocent people in the neighborhood, smashing up police stations and shops. They’re terrorists — they’re terrorizing the community. I agree with the peaceful protests, but the Antifa, they need to kill everyone in that thing.

“Black Lives Matter is not a peaceful protest. Antifa never wanted it peaceful. I would take them all out.”

Good post. I take issue with the following statement though: "By the late 1960s, Black Power came to represent the demand for more immediate violent action to counter American white supremacy. Most of these ideas were influenced by Malcolm X's criticism". There wasn't a demand for more immediate violent action. Many just said that you should meet violence with violence. In other words self defense.

""It doesn't mean that I advocate violence, but at the same time, I am not against using violence in self-defense. I don't call it violence when it's self-defense, I call it intelligence." "I don't favor violence."

Expanded Quote:
Malcolm X quotes on violence:

"It doesn't mean that I advocate violence, but at the same time, I am not against using violence in self-defense. I don't call it violence when it's self-defense, I call it intelligence."

"I don't favor violence. If we could bring about recognition and respect of our people by peaceful means, well and good. Everybody would like to reach his objectives peacefully. But I'm also a realist. The only people in this country who are asked to be nonviolent are black people."

"The true brotherhood I had seen had influenced me to recognize that anger can blind human vision," he said. "America is the first country ... that can actually have a bloodless revolution."

Black Lives Matter is a marxist organization that has received millions of dollars in donations from ignorant people who think the organization actually cares about black people when in fact they care about propogating their marxist critical race theory.
Voddie Baucham very clearly explains how flawed BLM and critical race theory is.

BLM activist accused of molesting over 60 undocumented children​

Denver, ColoradoDenver School Board director-at-large Tay Anderson, a Black Lives Matter activist and reportedly Colorado’s youngest Black elected official has been accused of molesting over 60 undocumented students, using the residency status of the children to target kids as young as 14-years-old. The accusations came after legislative testimony last week where a parent described an unidentified sexual predator within the school system. The Post Millennial reported that Brooks Fleming told the committee that 62 individuals had sought help handling the unnamed perpetrator. The abusive experiences ranged from unwanted touching to “violent acts of rape.”

We can go back and forth on Critical Race Theory, but the real question is why did it even come to this?

So your argument is that it doesn’t matter if CRT is bad, things in the past were worse? Great take.

You love to be not only intellectually lazy, you like to put words in peoples mouths in addition to projecting your twisted takes.

For the record, the resistance to a full and complete history has created these voids. The voids created the opportunity to have such things as Critical Race Theory. Also of note, there is also Critical Law/ Legal theory...

LOL. Yep, it was worth it - I was right. I don’t expect you to understand. Actually, I have been on here long enough that I don’t expect you to understand much. Such a fraud.

No one is arguing against more history being studied, but that's not what critical race theory does. CRT starts with marxism and creates a race theory to advocate for marxism with the ruse that it's actually about history. For BLM it's actually about ideology, specifically marxist ideology.
