There’s Black Lives Matter the concept and Black Lives Matter the institution. Most people who sign onto the BLM movement believe they are backing the concept, but it should be understood very clearly that the institution is reaping all the benefits.

And the institution has absolutely no concern for the well-being of black lives or equality in this country. In fact, by their own admission, their purpose isn’t to heal this country, it’s to rip it apart and remake it into a more Marxist kind of society.

For more on that, I highly recommend you read my previous article on the matter.

A 2015 video has resurfaced proving that the entire intent of the Black Lives Matter movement is marxism. As you can see during the interview with the Real News Network, BLM founder Patrisse Cullors admits she and her cohorts are “trained Marxists.”

“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular, we’re trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories,” said Cullors.

Black Lives Matter the institution isn’t trying to hide their Marxism either. As I list in my previous article, in their “what we believe” section, they list their goals and all of them are extreme leftist stances concerned with destroying the very fabric of America in favor of the implementation of radical marxist ideals:

We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.

We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.

We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.

We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).

Anything permeated with Marxism doesn’t have the interest of the people in mind. It often uses people or causes as an avenue to dismantle and rebuild political systems. Communism and socialism are not a solid system to replace anything with as it deteriorates and degrades anything it touches and that includes the lives of the people. These two systems alone have claimed the lives of millions over the span of its implementation in various countries.

The black community isn’t really a concern for BLM the institution. If it was, it would be looking into studies on what policies affect the black community on a fundamental level, improving relations between law enforcement and the black community, and putting money toward the institutions that do see marked improvements for the black population’s way of life.

They have no interest in that, however. They maintain themselves to be a reactive organization that has no interest in fixing the problem. This is evidenced by Cullors’ reaction to the Wichita “first steps” barbeque event in 2016 where a black community and the law enforcement community got together to have real conversations to provoke better understanding. Cullors immediately distanced BLM from this event and said this:

“We don’t sit on panels with law enforcement, and we don’t have BBQ’s or cookouts with law enforcement. We feel the best method at this point in history is by holding police accountable by organizing and advocating for police accountability.”

In other words, BLM’s purpose isn’t to bridge gaps, it’s to criticize and react. This is textbook Marxism meant to bring down organizations, not help improve them.

Supporting the concept of Black Lives Matter (ensuring the equal opportunity and well being of the black community) is what many believe they are doing, and if that’s the case, then be sure to only support the concept and distance yourself from the institution, which is putting black lives in harm’s way for political and monetary gain.
