The leader of Black Lives Matter UK, Sasha Johnson had her Twitter account suspended today after tweeting that, “the white man will not be our equal but our slave”.
The statement was made in a pinned tweet on the Twitter account of the Black Lives Matter UK leader, with many people on social media condemning it.
Social media users have also stated that they believe that there is more behind the Black Lives Matter movement than simply being a movement fighting for equality and justice for black people, and have even gone as far as suggesting that it is actually a Marxist political organisation at its heart, fighting to implement its own brand of Marxist ideology.
In fact video has surfaced in the past, in which one of the Black Lives Matter founders, Patrisse Cullors, assures the interviewer of the groups underlying ideology, stating “We’re trained Marxists.”
When the interviewer expressed concern that the group may not have a “clear ideological structure,” Cullors’ response is that she and one of the other BLM founders “in particular” are dedicated to the Communist ideology of Marxism stating:
“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular, we’re trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories.”
Indeed, one only has to look a little deeper into the stated aims of the Black Lives Matter movement to see that this group seems to be fighting more for the implementation of their own brand of Marxist Communism, than actually fighting for equality for people of colour. Equality, that many black people, particularly in the UK, would agree already exists.
So, the original founders of Black Lives Matter are, by their own admission dedicated Marxist communists, and the leader of Black Lives Matter UK, by her own admission, wants to make slaves of “the white man”.
While most of us want to live in a free and equal society, I wonder if the everyday “white man” and indeed women, who go out protesting for the Black Lives Matter cause, demanding social justice, freedom and equality for people of colour, that many would argue that they already have, actually know the intended outcome for them should Black Lives Matter, or at least their UK leader, actually obtain their demands?
And how many of them would be fighting for the kind of freedom and equality that would allow Sasha Johnson to make slaves of them?
