I Don't Support BLM BECAUSE I'm a Black Christian
Black Lives Matter is a fraudulent organization. That’s the truth. There’s no getting around it. BLM spews lies, malicious intent, and hatred under the guise of blameless passion spurned by televised injustices. It claims to fight for the lives of Black people, but it doesn’t. It claims to advocate for equal representation, but it doesn’t. It claims to elevate a sense of unity, but it doesn’t. In the six years of its existence, it’s done nothing except cultivate seeds of division and tension. And it goes even beyond that! The very ideas BLM uses to push their agenda pick apart the Black community, almost breaking it beyond repair.
But all this stuff is cleverly disguised, masked behind their activism for public good. Isn’t it obvious that Black lives matter? In America, that question is answered without a doubt. This the country that celebrates achievement. This is the country where we have more opportunities to reach higher levels of success than anywhere else in the world. This is the country that raises neurosurgeons, elites, business moguls, and creative geniuses. All this is available to people of every color, background, religion, and class. This country places no limits on who a person can become, especially when it comes to their race. I can prove it.
If you listen to the news, however, you’ll hear none of that. In fact, you’ll be kindly educated on the deep-seeded racist tendencies that are poisoning every aspect of our culture as Americans. This is the message BLM propagates. And it’s the first reason why I don’t support it.
Black Lives Matter LIES.
Racism is not the biggest problem affecting the Black community. (Don’t @ me)
It wasn’t until recently that most people agreed our issues stemmed from a lack of leadership. Not external leadership, like the kind that comes from politicians or community organizers. We’re missing the leadership of the individual family, the kind that comes from present fathers. Fractured families were never the norm for Black people, and that’s reflected in our history. The parallels are striking. Once the family broke, our standards broke with it.
BLM addresses this too, but from an astronomically different point of view. BLM actually demonizes the nuclear family and advocates for its abolishment. Watch out, Black men. Black Lives Matter is coming for you, too.
Black Lives Matter is FAKE.
In case you missed it, BLM does not promote all Black lives. Shocker, I know.
BLM overwhelmingly decries the injustices committed against people like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. And these were injustices. They should be decried and protested, but every other wrongful death and mistreatment should be included in those protests as well. You know the three names I just mentioned, but do you also know the names of David Dorn, Secoriea Turner, Lorenzo Anderson, or Mekhi James? These are black people who died at the hands of injustice, but BLM didn’t march for them. BLM didn’t say their names.
Black Lives Matter doesn't condemn the thousands of Black lives lost at the hands of gang violence.
Black Lives Matter didn’t speak up for Terry Crews after he was vilified on a national scale for pointing out a valid concern.
Black Lives Matter doesn’t represent the truly voiceless – the unborn. If the organization truly cared about the preservation of the Black community, it would vehemently oppose the abortion industry. Our current population is missing millions of people. I’d at least think BLM would advocate for Black motherhood, but I’m not seeing it. Are you?
Black Lives Matter is GODLESS.
There is not a single tenet in the BLM manifesto that reflects our real history.
Yes, it alludes to slavery as the originator and continual perpetuator of our problems, but the organization refuses to celebrate our victory over slavery. It was a victory won by a strong dependence on God. Christianity may have been the most influential factor to our achievement as a people. It was the glue that held us together in unity and gave our ancestors access to freedom before they even left the plantations. It was what fueled the work of the abolitionists and freedom fighters, like Harriet Beecher Stowe. It was our first vestige of hope.
And it was our adherence to Christian principles that continued to elevate our community in the years after the Civil War. Even now, the same truths our great-great-great-great grandparents
read apply to our lives today. But have we read them for ourselves? Have we followed them? Have we passed those standards down to our kids for future generations?
“Love others as yourselves.” “Pray for your enemies. Do good to those who hurt you.” “Vengeance is the Lord’s.” “It is for freedom that Christ set us free. Do not be burdened again by slavery.” “Honor your father and mother.” “Do not covet your neighbor’s things.” “Do not steal.” “If a man will not work, he will not eat.” “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.” “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” “Wives, submit to your husbands.” “Husbands, love your wives as Christ loves the church.” “I am more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus.”
That empowers people. That is what inspires legacy from generation to generation. That is what commands respect.
Black Lives Matter obviously does not agree. And therefore, I can’t agree with them.
I absolutely cannot back anything that uses hatred, victimization, and deceit to make a difference. I hope you feel the same, and I hope you aren’t afraid to say so.
If we aren’t willing to stand on the truth, we will fall for anything. Don’t fall.
