Black Lives Matter: Racketeering, Revolution, and Perpetual Racism

by | Aug 13, 2020 | News, Special Reports

Other than glossed-over news reports and well-crafted press releases, not much is known about the Black Lives Matter movement. The following information is intended to shed more light on BLM’s purpose and its inner workings.

This article is the first in a series. Coming reports will cover BLM’s  organizational and financial structure, their efforts to gain political influence at local levels, and the adoption of BLM cirriculum in education.


Should our Communities Welcome Black Lives Matter?

Over the last few years, BLM has preoccupied the public with a re-imaged interpretation of ‘civil rights’. Don’t be fooled. Black Lives Matter isn’t about civil rights. They stoke the perception of wide-spread racism as a guise for control of public resources: funding, property, equipment, supplies, educational system, and economic activity. Perpetuating this hightened state of emotion on the topic of civil rights is BLM’s business plan.

Threatening the Public and Creating Strife to Capture Resources

BLM is a confederation of self-avowed Marxist corporations using racial guilt, threat of violence and actual violence as conduit for financial and political gain. Its leaders and dedicated followers are predators participating in a protection racket. And like all extortion rackets, this is an organized crime syndicate with a list of demands that’ll never cease.

The expression of conditional violence is at BLM’s core. It’s even expressed in the movement’s slogan.

What is Black Lives Matter?

Black Lives Matter (BLM) is widely viewed as a civil rights social movement with the purpose of fighting racism and police brutality against black people. Unfortunately, BLM has no likeness to Martin Luther King’s civil rights campaigns during the 1960s. Whereas MLK undertook peaceful protests to inspire positive change, BLM follows the Marxist Black Panther and Weather Underground’s stratagem of threatening turmoil to force policy.

Black Lives Matter: Accept Our Truth or There’ll be Consequences

BLM uses a well-crafted “social-justice-versus-racism” crusade to persuade others to support their movement. And like other Marxist movements, those who don’t pledge allegiance to their demands are targeted to be driven out of business, have their reputations attacked, or be physically assaulted.

BLM’s New Definition of Racism

BLM views racism differently. Under BLM’s axiom, racism — as they define it — is well-beyond the act of discriminating, harrassing, or victimizing individuals based on race or skin color. They describe racism as “institutional” or “systemic”. This new interpretation of racism is re-imagined to sow division across communities and is taught by liberal academics in universities and colleges. For example, the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill defines Institutional Racism as the following.

Institutional racism is distinguished from the explicit attitudes or racial bias of individuals by the existence of systematic policies or laws and practices that provide differential access to goods, services and opportunities of society by race.

According to BLM, the only way racism may be reined-in is through the restructuring of the American political and economic system. BLM and other like-minded organizations use this definition as their cornerstone belief because for them to continue racism needs to be perpetual.

BLM is said to have stemmed from the Black Liberation movement of the 1960’s and uses Ethnic Gnosticism as described by Dr. Voddie Baucham.

The Black Lives Matter Agenda

The Gatestone Institute lays out the BLM agenda as the following,

BLM’s worldview is based on a mix of far-left theoretical frameworks, including critical race theory and intersectional theory. Critical race theory posits that racism is systemic, based on a system of white supremacy and therefore a permanent feature of American life. Intersectional theory asserts that people are often disadvantaged by multiple sources of oppression: their race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and other identity markers.


Black Lives Matter and other purveyors of critical race theory and intersectional theory reject individual accountability for behavior, criminal or otherwise, because, according to them, blacks are systemic and permanent victims of racism. Such racism, according to BLM, can only be defeated by completely dismantling the American economic, political and social system and rebuilding it from scratch — according to Marxist principles.


Black Lives Matter seeks to replace the foundational cornerstones of American society:


1) abolish the Judeo-Christian concept of the traditional nuclear family, the basic social unit in America;


2) abolish the police and dismantle the prison system;


3) mainstream transgenderism and delegitimize so-called heteronormativity (the belief that heterosexuality is the norm); and


4) abolish capitalism (a free economy) and replace it with communism (a government-controlled economy).”

What is “Critical Race Theory”?

As Defined by

“Critical race theory (CRT), the view that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist and that race itself, instead of being biologically grounded and natural, is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of colour. According to critical race theory (CRT), racial inequality emerges from the social, economic, and legal differences that white people create between ‘races’ to maintain elite white interests in labour markets and politics, giving rise to poverty and criminality in many minority communities.”

What is “Intersectionality”?

As discussed by YWCA Boston

“Intersectionality is a framework for conceptualizing a person, group of people, or social problem as affected by a number of discriminations and disadvantages. It takes into account people’s overlapping identities and experiences in order to understand the complexity of prejudices they face.”


Black Lives Movement is an Extortion Racket Led by Terror-minded Mob Bosses, Sexual Predators and other Social Misfits

Attorney General recently, while on Mark Levin’s FoxNews television show, described BLM as a group of communist revolutionaries. He stated that this movement is a sophisticated form of guerrilla warfare on the American people. That these Marxist groups are infiltrating government bodies in order to change policy from within. And during anti-government confrontations, these groups execute pre-planned levels of aggression; which in turn, make it difficult to distinguish protesters from rioters.


Who is Black Lives Matter?

The lead BLM organization, the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, was founded by three far-left radical women (Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opel Tometi) shortly after the George Zimmerman trial. Although the organization presents itself to be a non-profit charitable enterprise, it is a privately held Delaware corporation — with an opaque structure — lacking disclosure and transparency even on the most fundamental aspects of its finances. According to an IRS search, this organization lacks 501(c)3 status, therefore it is not a charity, but a corporate business.

There are sixteen official BLM ‘chapters’ across the nation, with many more independent “affiliate” organizations in the movement — many of which, filed for 501(c)3 charity status but were denied by the IRS as a result of their political activity.

BLM receives support from other Marxist/Communist leaning groups having common Marxist-Communist goals; including, the Nation of Islam, the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), and Antifa. Cross-over membership is prevalent between these groups.

Influences and Lineage of Black Lives Matter

The ideology BLM embraces is well-established. BLM leaders readily acknowledge they’re influenced by radical individuals and far-left organizations from past movements.

According to their own leadership, BLM’s political disposition was shaped by the following people and organizations.

Eric Mann, Far Left 60’s Radical

Eric Mann

Eric Mann is an avowed Marxist-Communist and the leader of the 1960’s radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). SDS is the predecessor of Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization. In 1969, Mann was convicted and sentenced to two years in prison for his role in the conspiracy to commit murder and promotion of anarchy —  shooting up a Massachusetts police station.

Mann is the founder of the Labor/Community Strategy Center in Los Angeles, California, where BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors worked for over a decade. Cullors claims he trained her on how to be a Marxist activist.

The Weather Underground Organization (WUO)

Originally called the “Weathermen”, the Weather Underground is a 1960’s radical left militant organization that branched off from Eric Mann’s SDS organization. Weather Underground was active from the late 60’s to early 70’s.

According to Wikipedia,

The FBI classified the WUO as a domestic terrorist group, with revolutionary positions characterized by black power and opposition to the Vietnam War.

This organization carried out jail-breaks, numerous bombing campaigns on U.S. buildings (including the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol building), killings of police officers, and Brinks guards.


Assata Shakur, Former BLF Leader 

Assata Shakur (aka., Joanne Deborah Byron and Joanne Chesimard), was an active leader in the Black Liberation Front (BLF) and Black Panther Party. She is a prison escapee  and currently on FBI’s most wanted terrorist list – with an asoociated $2M reward for information leading to her capture. Shakur is regularly cited by BLM co-founder Alicia Garza as one of her personal inspirations.



BLM Extortion, Looting and Rioting

The Violence

BLM protests have evolved into mob violence and looting. The number of these incidents since May 2020 are numerous, although a complete tally is difficult to ascertain. Nationally, the cost of damage and theft that BLM and ANTIFA are responsible for reaches into the billions of dollars. As reported by the Washington Times,

  • Over 250 CVS and 350 Walgreens were looted nationwide
  • 700 law officers were injured
  • 458 New York Police Officers were injured
  • 303 NYPD vehicles have been vandalized (14 a total loss)

The New York City police stated their department has tallied over a billion dollars in damage as a result of riots, looting, and physical violence.  In other metros across the nation, BLM riot-looting damge is well into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

The following two tweets present videos of BLM supporters assaulting a man after trying to help another BLM victim. The first video shows the end of BLM’s assault, after after the man was pulled from his crashed vehicle and beaten. The second video shows onlookers imitating the BLM attackers while other bystanders try to help the unconscious man.

This victim did not regain consciousness until the following day at the hospital. The perpetrator, that left the man unconscious was arrested days later.

Extortion by BLM

There are plenty of instances of extortion, with veiled threats of violence, from BLM.

BLM threatens NuLu businesses in Louisville, KY

Businesses in the NuLu neighborhood were threatened by BLM members. The demands include a 1.5% extortion fee to be paid by businesses to black organizations. Non-compliance of BLM demands would result in various efforts to force the closure of businesses in the neighborhood. Currently, businesses (with names of business owners) have a compliance ‘rating’ at the website.

National BLM Leaders

BLM was founded by three far-left radical women, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opel Tometi.

Alicia Garza

As co-Founder of the Black Lives Movement, she’s also the principal of Black Futures Lab, self-described as an organization that “works with Black people to transform our communities, building Black political power and changing the way that power operates—locally, statewide, and nationally.” This organization claims to be a 501(c)3, however no record of such a charity exists in the IRS database.  Garza sites Assata Shakur as a hero she looks up to.


Patrisse Cullors

As co-founder of Black Lives Matter, Cullors stated in a 2015 interview that she and Garza are “trained Marxists”. She claimed she gained her affinity for the Marxist principles from Eric Mann during her 11 years at the Labor/Community Strategy Center. This center expresses its appreciation for the work of the U.S. Communist Party and its support for the Black Panther Party, the American Indian Movement, Young Lords, and Brown Berets.


Opal Tometi

Daughter of Nigerian Immigrants, Tometi is one of the three co-founders of the Black Lives Movement. She is the former Executive Director of Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI).  At this meeting, where the government of Caracas received the BLM co-founder, Tometi was quoted as saying, “We denounce US espionage against Venezuela, the illegal surveillance of PDVSA, the violation of airspace and sanctions.”

Black Lives Matter in Schools

To ensure a cross-generational legacy of their Marxist-based beliefs, BLM is implementing a strategy to integrate their principles into the national school curriculum. The activist organization doing this is called Black Live Matter in School (BLMS). This is a nation-wide effort that has gone on for years.

Both the National Education Association (NEA), the nation’s largest teachers union, and the powerful California Teachers Association (CTA) have endorsed the BLMS organization and promote their activities.

BLM co-founder Opel Tometi describes the effort as “a new uprising for racial justice” in the nation’s schools.
