Why I Can't Support Black Lives Matter.
In a reaction to police injustice how young Black men were treated an organization was created called "Black Lives Matter". This group was a vocal
advocate of treating the young black men with the same respect as all
other people. However, the Black Lives Matter group slowly morphed into
a political organization and seemed to move away from their roots.
While the Black Lives Matter movement still had a focus on anti-police
action when they could exploit incidents that show the police abusing
their authority and rightly so. The movement has also taken an
ideological slant that is quite disturbing to me.
Black Lives Matter has a foreign policy fact sheet and only identifies one country for criticism, Israel and calls the country an‘apartheid state’ committing ‘genocide’. Yet, there us no mention of Syria, which kills thousands of its civilians with chemical weapons, barrel bombs, and rapes children. Back Lives Matter fails to mention Iran, a sponsor of terrorism. How about North Korea or Burma? Read it for yourself Here.
Despite the historic alliance between Blacks and Jews, Black Lives Matter has joined the Anti-Semitic far left fringe groups in attacking the only Jewish State in the world, Israel. That is why I cannot support Black Lives Matter.
