In the beginning was the idea, and the idea was with the African-Americans, and the idea was for the African-Americans. It was for peace amongst everyone and equality for all. It took a while, but they were progressing and a lot of work was accomplished…until… patience was no longer a virtue. Until we started working for “me now” and not “us later.” We became disoriented. The theme of “I have a dream” slowly churned into “what do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now!” The black people have lost their control, we have lost our control.  

The Black Lives Matter foundation is seeking vengeance on those who assaulted their kind, yet vengeance is not the answer. As a result of this, people are scattering their minds in every direction. This movement consists of people who are not on the same page, and maybe even reading different books. The BLM movement needs a leader, or a set of leaders who can all balance each other out in power. They need to find the MLK Junior of the 21st century who can bring the thoughts of this group into one united idea. Instead, there are people who are not officially in power, but who venture up the ladder of hierarchy and create chaos. They have donated enough money to have their faces put in the front of the party. One of those people, Shaun King, is at the forefront of this type of action and has raised donations for Black Lives Matter, using a portion of the money (up to 1 million dollars), on himself. These corrupt actions are what lead some of the members to think in the corrupt ways that they now do.

The BLM movement is full of people who are scared of the truth. They do not address the black on black crimes that go on in America. Former NFL linebacker, Ray Lewis, stated the fact that “In Chicago alone the murder rate has soared 72 percent in 2016 — 88 percent in the first three months of 2016 compared to the last year. I’m trying to ask the question to an organization of black lives, if they really mattered, then why not riot now?” If the main goal of this group is equality, how come the deaths of blacks does not equal the deaths of blacks? But that is not seen as a problem in our communities through the eyes of Black Lives Matter.  It is when the “white police officer” kills the black man that the word “racist” comes into play, but isn’t that racism in itself?

When portrayed by some media stations and the Black Lives Matter movement, these black men were all  poor, faultless, and angelic beings, while all cops are menacing, murderous maniacs who pull the trigger on any black person if they talk. Yes, there is a problem with our law enforcement that needs to be addressed. Innocent African-Americans are dying by the murders of fear-stricken cops, but the way that the BLM movement is reacting to these murders is not the way they should be. They are fighting fire with fire, seeking revenge for something that can be put out peacefully, with patience. As the wise Martin Luther King Jr. once taught us, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”  

Cops are hired to protect the innocent citizens of America from the criminals that stay in the alleyways. How do you think these innocent cops who have never even pulled a trigger feel with all of these threats given by the BLM movement? Is this the morally correct way to go about this situation?  I am an African-American. I support the lives of blacks, for black lives do matter. These are my brothers and sisters who are dying in the streets. However, the way that BLM goes about resting the souls of the close ones who lost their lives to cops is immoral. We should come together in prayer. We should live together in peace. We should support our people and unite as one. Let’s remember the days of slavery, when people were risking their lives for the sake of their fellow brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. Let’s turn the other cheek, not only for the black nation, but also for the peace and tranquility of mankind. “Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”-MLK Jr.
