You know the Black Lives Matter movement is doomed when prominent African-Americans turn their back on it and want nothing to do with it.
Legendary musician Steve Wonder, who used to support the Black Lives Matter movement, tore into it during a peace summit in North Minneapolis last Saturday.
“It is in your hands to stop all the killing and all the shooting wherever it might be, because you cannot say, ‘black lives matter’ and then kill yourselves,” the 67-year-old entertainer told a crowd of young and old Americans alike who were focused on ending gun violence among the youth.
“Because, you know, we’ve mattered long before it was said, but the way we show that we matter, the way that we show all the various people of color matter, is by loving each other and doing something about it,” he added. “Not just talking about it, not just waiting to see the media and press come when there’s a horrible thing.”
The problem with the BLM movement is that it has no direction. It was founded on the deaths of black thugs and it has quickly evolved into a directionless movement that often results in violent clashes and looting.
Conservative Tribune reports:
According to The Baltimore Sun, this mother of eight was murdered on June 12 “after she called police to report that someone had stolen her son’s bicycle seat.”
Yet the response to Wilson’s death from BLM was dead silence. There were no calls to put an end to the ridiculous “stop snitching” rule imposed on many young blacks, and no cries for the killings to halt. There was just dead silence.
And for being courageous enough to highlight BLM’s refusal to genuinely get involved in bringing an end to unnecessary violence such as that which took Wilson’s life, Wonder was attacked.
As noted by The Daily Wire, a writer at the radical blog The Root scolded Wonder, accusing him of taking “a line out of the ‘All Lives Matter’ playbook when he went all ‘You black people kill each other.’”
With such weak leadership in place, the BLM is doomed to fail and they will continue to champion the wrong things in their struggle for recognition.
