TACOMA, WA — June 20, 2020 — The first thing that I have to say is that I am an African American man living in the Minneapolis area. I have to state this now; otherwise I would probably be called a racist.

Most people think that Black Lives Matter is a grass-roots, black created, black run organization dedicated to fighting racism. It most certainly is not. The Black Lives Matter movement is the creation of a group of a few very wealthy individuals, non-profit corporations, and the corporate media (incidentally, 90% of the U.S. media is controlled by only six corporations)

On the official Black Lives Matter website, BlackLivesMatter.com https://blacklivesmatter.com/ it states that Black Lives Matter is a global network foundation that is active in the U.S., U.K., and Canada. A global network!

Who funds Black Lives Matter? It’s funded by billionaires George Soros (Open Society Foundation), Rob McKay (Taco Bell heir), the Ford Foundation, the Borealis Philanthropy, the Democracy Alliance, and many others. Not exactly what I would call a black run grass-roots organization. If these facts alone don’t cause you to rethink the whole Black Lives Matter thing, then you just aren’t paying attention.

Black Lives Matter began in 2013 when the media suddenly started focusing a tremendous amount of attention on what they portrayed as the rise of unjustified, racially motivated killings of African American men by white police officers. That’s the way that the media portrayed it, but the facts say otherwise.

Are police shootings of African American men on the rise? No they are not. In fact they are on the decline. According to the Juvenile and Criminal Justice Report, the rate of police killings of African Americans has fallen by 70% over the last 40-50 years. http://www.cjcj.org/news/8113

Are white racist police the biggest murderers of African Americans? No, far from it. The Black Lives Matter / media cabal is demonizing the police and portraying them as our number one foe, – the enemy, but the facts once again say otherwise.

According to the FBI Uniform Crime Report, 2,925 African Americans were murdered in 2018. 89% of them (2,600) were murdered by other African Americans.

https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2018/crime-in-the-u.s.-2018/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-6.xls. That same year 209 African Americans (7%) were killed by the police (justified or otherwise).

So let’s do the math here. 2,600 African Americans killed by other African Americans and 209 killed by the police (justified or otherwise). So who is killing African Americans? Other African Americans. But who does the media put all of their focus on? The “white racist” police.

So here is the big question, seeing that these are the clear facts why is the media twisting the truth? Why are they pushing the false narrative that racism is rampant, (didn’t we just have an African American president for eight years)? Why are they spreading this lie that racially motivated police shootings are up. Why are they spreading this lie world-wide causing racial divisions, protest, rioting, looting, burning, destruction and death? This global cabal has a secret agenda and African Americans are just being used as pawns in their world-wide game.

This media produced false narrative reached its pinnacle with the death of George Floyd. The media has practically deified him. He’s in nationwide TV commercials, online ads, public service announcements, he’s on billboards (we are talking millions of dollars in advertising. Who’s paying for this?). His image is graffitied on buildings, businesses and walls from coast to coast, he’s on national magazine covers, and this list goes on and on. Hundreds attended his memorial service and funeral which included Al Sharpton (surprise!), The Governor of Minnesota, the mayor of Minneapolis, and many big name celebrities.

So who is this George Floyd? Is he some great civil rights leader like Martin Luther King or Nelson Mandela? No, – he was a violent career criminal with a long criminal record.

George Floyd was released from prison in Houston Texas in 2014 following an arrest for aggravated robbery. He had been in jail at least five other times. His arrest record included theft, drug possession, and criminal trespass. He was also the leader of a home invasion ring. They entered a woman’s home and Floyd threatened to kill her by pointing a gun at her stomach while they ransacked the place looking for drugs and money. (Check out the link to his criminal record)

Nice guy huh. And this is the one that the Black Lives Matter / media cabal is using as their international poster boy. A violent career criminal. Well at least you can’t say that they don’t have a sense of humor.

On May 20th 2020 Floyd was arrested again for trying to pass a counterfeit $20 bill at a Minneapolis grocery store. This was the event that supposedly set off this insane world-wide media storm. As we know, Floyd died while in police custody and the four officers involved were all immediately fired and charged with murder and aiding and abetting murder. This was done before any investigation has been done, and before the cause of death was even established.

The main officer involved, Derrick Chauvin was immediately tried, convicted, and hung. Not by a jury, but by the media. The media has so thoroughly convicted him that it is considered blasphemy of the highest order to even hint that he should be considered, “innocent until proven guilty”. The media has proclaimed it murder. Case closed!

Well once again I hate to spoil the show by introducing more facts into this media circus of lies, but here it goes.

According to the official Hennepin County Medical Examiner (not the private “examiner” paid for by the Floyd family legal team), George Floyd did not die from traumatic asphyxia or strangulation. The report stated that he died from a heart attack and the heart attack was a result of several factors. He had the narcotic Fentanyl in his system (which is 50 times more potent than heroin and the same drug that killed Prince), and he also had methamphetamines in his system. He also suffered from severe arteriosclerotic heart disease, and hypertension. All of that combined with his struggle with the police as they tried to subdue him is what caused him to go into cardiopulmonary arrest. Not just the fact that officer Chauvin had his knee on his neck. George Floyd received emergency medical care in the field, but he could not be resuscitated. Does that sound like murder to you? Read the report for yourself.

https://www.hennepin.us/-/media/hennepinus/residents/public-safety/documents/Autopsy_2020-3700_Floyd.pdf

Also the knee on the neck (neck restraint) maneuver was not something that the Minneapolis police reserved for use only on black people. They have used it over 200 times since 2015 on anyone they needed to subdue of all colors, white, black, brown, or whatever, and no one has ever died from it. So why are the Black Lives Matter Network / media cabal screaming at the top of their lungs that this was racism? A racially motivated murder!

The Black Lives Matter Network / media cabal is not what it makes itself out to be. It is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. They pretend to be the liberal friends of African Americans, but in reality they are their mortal enemies. The policies that they so aggressively push cause nothing but more damage to the African American community.

Under the guise of eliminating racism they push a policy to “Defund the Police”. This is right on the front of the Black Lives Matter website.

Under the guise of eliminating racism they push a policy that they call, “Stop The Mass Incarcerations”. This is a policy that promotes the release of prison inmates before their time is up and putting them back on the street.

Under the guise of eliminating racism they push for the decriminalization of drugs offenses, and the immediate pardon of all drug offenses with reparations paid to those convicted of drug offenses.

So sum this up. In the African American community where there is the highest crime rate and the biggest problems with drug abuse, they push to release the inmates from prison and put them back on the streets, let drug use and drug dealing run wild, and then take away the police. What do you think the outcome of these policies will produce? More crime and drug abuse in the African American community. High crime and drug areas minus police equals hell, – easy math. Policies that promote more crime and drug abuse in the black community are what I call anti-black policies. These guys make the KKK (Ku Klux Klan) look like angels by comparison.

The  “liberal” media cabal (news, TV, movies, music, publications) who now are pretending to care so much about racism and black people have for decades pushed ideas that are very damaging to the African American community. They have promoted criminal sensibilities, thug life, promiscuity, and immorality to the African American community by way of their promotion of the worst aspects of rap / hip-hop culture. They’ve been actively promoting the very things that feed our problems. Like feeding poison to a sick man.

Here is a very timely quote from Malcolm X: “The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn’t taken, tricked or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems.”

What we are seeing happening in the world right now under the guise of “eliminating racism”, – the destabilization of society, the protest, rioting, looting, burning, and killing are not spontaneous, grass-roots events. It’s all thoroughly coordinated by those at the top of the Black Lives Matter / medial cabal. They are indeed the enemy of African Americans, but they are actually the enemy of us all. African Americans are just being used as cannon fodder in their game of global domination.

  1. Leslie – Thank you very much for writing this article and also for providing links for the facts. I listen to Larry Elder regularly and so appreciate the time, effort and tireless work that goes into standing up against the insanity that is going on and for providing a voice of reason. It is unbelievable to me how many people just seem to follow the regular media and think they are getting real news.

    Thank you and God Bless You!!
    Sincerely, MEB, Los Angeles CA

  2. I do believe we have billionaires behind many of these movements that are trying to make us a socialist nation. The saddest part is that the protesters and the media are being “used.” Lenin, in his conquest by the Bolshevik revolution, thanked all of the people who helped him achieve his dream, by calling them the “idiots”. Make no mistake about it, the protesters and the ever willing media better hope this dream is not achieved. If it is, they’ll be the first lined up against a wall and shot. The socialists will have already hand picked who the media will be and will not trust who’s in place now.
    The protesters right along with them. Why? Because they might foment another revolution.

  3. BLM no agenda for workforce development / CTE Career Technical Education why are they paying people to be activist. Our young people need career development. Why are these billionaire and corporation paying youth to be activist. Reverend Sullivan had the right plan!!!!! OIC Why not fund these organiztion!!! they still exist!!!
    Why they do not fund CDC community development corporation. (housing/jobs, economic development.) What wrong funding HBCU!!!!! BS

  4. I was raised in NYC when Rudy Guliani was in charge & during 9/11/01. Never Forget is what they said, well.. they forgot. I moved to FL in 2010. I have always considered myself a democrat, until now. This 4th of July weekend has been one of the deadliest weekends ever in cities around the country. Shootings all weekend, several dead in NYC. A child shot by BLM protesters in GA is among the many killings. I am seeing the difference in the democratic run cities and am finally “woke” more than I have ever been. I now view myself conservative, will never vote Democrat again. I am also changing my party affiliation To Republican. I could never support this Violent “movement”. Anyone who can’t see the violence & continues to support BLM is either blind or stupid. If the Liberals win we will eventually be under a dictatorship & it will just keep getting worse.

  5. I hate everyone equally…
    What? We’re all thinking it!
    We have all come across the worst of the worst in skins of every color!
    But we have also come across the best of best in skins of every color!
    Love & kindness are incurable diseases.
    Love & kindness spread faster than any “pandemic”.
    They say knowledge is power; how is that possible when everyone on both sides know everything?
    Love is power.
    Kindness is power.
    Black. White. Brown. Red. Yellow…
    We all have the power!!

  6. You made very logical points. While I want equality for all, I just see anger and craziness through using the avenue BLM. Love and patience and facts make change, not anger, hate and violence. I love people of all color. I do not respect people of any color who resort to violence, hate and destruction of property. As a country we are being divided not united. I see more footage of public anger and violence between people, whether it be in a store setting, on the street or through social media, than I have seen in years. It doesn’t feel like progress it feels like we’re turning into a country of division and violence. Our country has always stood out because we stand for peacefulness and unity, while some other countries have struggled with grasping what we take for granted. Lets work together like we always have. Do our research not just watch the media and come up with logical solutions.

  7. History is repeating itself. Your critique of BLM applies to most of the prominent supposedly black grass roots organizations over the last one hundred plus years: NAACP founded 1909, Congress Of Racial Equality (CORE)-1942, South Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) – 1957, Student Non Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) -1960, etc. There are videos of Malcolm X criticizing them for being controlled by whites.

  8. Is the KKK still around? Never hear anything about those dipshits. BLM gives all their money to demoRat politicians that have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to help the black people.! They stick that money in their pocket and worry about what flavor ice cream they’re gonna eat that night. While BLM tries to give them more money. Y’all some stupid mfers! How do you not realize that they are using you??? BLM doesn’t give a crap about how many black people get killed EVERY DAY by other blacks. They can blame it on Trump all they want to, but bottom line is, the white DemoRATS are looking out for themselves and BLM is still sending money to those senile WHITE dipshitz! Damn, think for yourselves instead of how much money that you’re giving them to live in one of several homes they own (with security).

    1. It is time to clean out the communist dems and socialists rich from our country and bring our country back together for all its people no matter what color or race to live by the constitution of the United States, if it means a war to make it happen then so be it..

      1. I have been a democrat since 1987 when I was first able to vote. In that time period I have voted for some republicans,but mostly democrats. Mind you I was raised to respect the Flag,our country, respect authority,make change through peaceful avenues that our constitution allows,put an honest days work in and you can achieve the American dream. I can happily say that I have attained the American dream by my standards. When the riots,looting and burning of cities occured I was angered as an American. When police were vilified for doing their job,I was disgusted. I am changing my party affiliation to republican and voting for President Trump. My wife is as well.

  9. I’m happy to see that I’m not the only person who has this perception of this movement! I’m Caucasian and unfortunately any time I try to express my beliefs and opinions of what I see going on I get ” oh you just don’t understand because you are white”…… That phrase really burns me up to the point I finally decided to look for someone else who can see that the approach the movement is taking is only going to make things worse.

  10. As an African American male I 100% agree with this. The issue is the BLM mouth pieces are mainly uneducated and screaming women. We need men like this who use logic and facts. If we were to clean up our own communities you would see a very Sharpe drop in violence.

    1. Really? Blaming another demographic that experience discrimination? This is the problem, constant blaming and division like you just did, not women. What about the screaming men on the protests? FYI, they were majority. Another FYI, there’s another article with more data than this one written by a woman on The Guardian making the same points. Gender isn’t the problem, your attitude is.
