    I think the commentary was regarding the founder of the Minneapolis chapter, not the entire organization.

    His comments were-
    “In 2015, I was the founder of Black Lives Matter in St. Paul,” Rashad Turner, the president and executive director of Minnesota Parent Union, said in a YouTube video called “the truth revealed about BLM.”
    “However, after a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families,” he insisted. He said BLM “cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis,” adding it 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,” he insisted.

    The truth about the BLM is self evident to anyone who has rational perspectives and self-respect.

    liked for the great word "auto-golpe." i also like a word from, i think, patricio , "caudillo. "

    when did our caudillo launch this auto- golpe. i've been thinking with the "free michigan" tweet and his plot against the michigan governor. but sometimes i think maybe it was charlottesville when his "good people" launched their vehicles into the peaceful crowd.

    I think he’s been stoking violence for a long time now. It is a quiet thing to fall. I don’t know if it’s any one of those but I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t at least one of them.

    "Take up the White Man’s burden—

    Send forth the best ye breed—

    Go send your sons to exile

    To serve your captives' need

    To wait in heavy harness

    On fluttered folk and wild—

    Your new-caught, sullen peoples,

    Half devil and half child

    Take up the White Man’s burden

    In patience to abide

    To veil the threat of terror

    And check the show of pride;

    By open speech and simple

    An hundred times made plain

    To seek another’s profit

    And work another’s gain

    Take up the White Man’s burden—

    And reap his old reward:

    The blame of those ye better

    The hate of those ye guard—

    The cry of hosts ye humour

    (Ah slowly) to the light:

    "Why brought ye us from bondage,

    “Our loved Egyptian night?”

    Take up the White Man’s burden-

    Have done with childish days-

    The lightly proffered laurel,

    The easy, ungrudged praise.

    Comes now, to search your manhood

    Through all the thankless years,

    Cold-edged with dear-bought wisdom,

    The judgment of your peers!"

    I would never say Black lives matter because of this reason.

    All human lives matter.

    That is the basis of our Constitution as well as every states constitution.
    Democrats wanting the popular vote discount that every state has its own binding laws, called their own constitution.

    No. You are the one not fact checking anything you post. It takes two seconds to see the premise of you thread is a lie.

    And I’ve heard the same things about the Tea Party movement too. What’s your point?

    No, what was your point in context of his comments about Occupy Wall St?

    Fact checking your fake stories is about as much time as I’m going to waste on this silly space.

    A co-founder of Black Lives Matter announced Thursday that she is stepping down as executive director of the movement’s foundation. She decried what she called a smear campaign from a far-right group, but said neither that nor recent criticism from other Black organizers influenced her departure.

    Patrisse Cullors, who has been at the helm of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation for nearly six years, said she is leaving to focus on other projects, including the upcoming release of her second book and a multi-year TV development deal with Warner Bros. Her last day with the foundation is Friday.

    “I’ve created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,” Cullors told The Associated Press. “It feels like the time is right.”

    The rest of your post is as manic and disjointed as poor Ben Shapiro, who sounds like he's had too many cappuccino's. Perhaps you should pick one of the baseless contentions you made and try to prove it. There's plenty to choose from.

    We say things come and go all the time. What’s the point in engaging with those whataboutisms? Of course a what about to a what about is still a what about.

    The point is so easy to get, even an intellectual can get it. You said "BLM is a worldwide phenomenon now. It's not going anywhere anytime soon." But people said that about OWS. It's gone.

    I read here earlier that BLM is a mere flash in the pan. This is a true statement. It's a populist movement where the leaders buy million-dollar mansions, where the leadership is being accused of not helping the very people they're supposed to be helping. It is already in the process of imploding. All it'll take is a few lawsuits and it's done. It's all flash and substance and no actual foundation. In fact, the only thing keeping it going is white guilt. Once BLM overplays it's hand, it's done. Given human nature, that'll happen in maybe a year, two tops.

    Yeah I don’t think you’ve seem now BLM actually works, and the lawsuit strategy won’t work as easily as you’ve said it will. You might want a better comparison than OWS.

    Multiple city chapters claim BLM doesn't work, if your definition of "working" is helping the black community. The national org. has faced harsh allegations and criticism from local chapter leaders and victims moms.

    Yeah your examples don’t really have a basis in reality. There isn’t strong evidence of financial misconduct or evidence to suggest BLm is failing outside conservative fringe media.

    LOL ... the victims moms and local chapter leaders criticizing BLM aren't conservatives or media pundits. I haven't alleged financial misconduct, however BLM critics cite lack of any funding for their grassroots programs as 1 of their main grievances. Victims moms allege BLM has exploited their childrens deaths to fundraise.

    I totally agree with this.

    The Democrats rely heavily upon African American voters, so BLM is their tool to drive African American voter turnout every election year. They have in the past and will continue into the future to rise up in election years and then mostly disappear in non election years.

    This reality though, wholly invalidates their mission and exposes it for the fraud that it is. This will continue to happen until it becomes ineffective, and perhaps backfires.

    Am I safe in assuming that this is OK with you?
