On every point... Mel, you agree with every white supremacist/white nationalist I've ever encountered online.
EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
But you want to say the exact same things they say and hope that we will not notice you're using the same sources and playbook.
I've never met a single white supremacist who was pro-BLM. For obvious reasons.
But they cannot attack BLM in the media simply for being black. They have to attack them with something else. So they say they're funded by George Soros. And they are communists.
Is it true that the leaders of the movement don't fully agree with capitalism?
But it's like you forgot where you were. Or you just don't know because you didn't do enough research on what we think before trying to infiltrate us with your propaganda.
"Black Lives Matter is a communist group."
This is how white supremacists sound all the time because in their minds, having communist ideas, alone, is a crime. Capitalism is their system. However, America is not purely capitalist. Pure capitalism doesn't actually work. But white supremacists tend to be ignorant to this fact. Modern European societies tend to use a combination of Capitalism and Socialism. In other words... they try to balance self-interest (capitalism) vs. the needs of others (socialism). This combination works and also lowers crime and poverty.
People who have more communist ideas tend to believe this combination doesn't or isn't going far enough. But this is why I said you forgot where you were because you thought your audience was more sympathetic to capitalism to automatically want to stomp on anything else. But that's not how we think. That's how YOU think because you're not one of us. And even a black Republican wouldn't assume this on our behalf. They would know better. They know their ideas are the black MINORITY. Black people are naturally more sympathetic to communist IDEAS but not the historic practice of communism. And we don't push communism because we haven't seen a good working example of it to fundamentally support it as a better way (for our community).
Capitalism has some good qualities but capitalism itself does not provide the balance in order to be good. Without socialism, capitalism is evil. The evils in our capitalist system are not because of socialism. They are based on greed which is enabled by capitalism. We play this game because we have to play this game. We don't play this game because we love it. But you don't understand the black community or how we think about the disadvantages that affect us all. We do. That's why we're constantly in a battle against the system. That's why we call it Babylon. Only you, who are alien to our culture, don't see anything wrong with capitalism, and therefore you see everything wrong with communism.
And in doing so you are a perfect echo of white supremacy.
Didn't you know?
White racists also labeled the Black Panthers as a "communist organization".
So understand, that being labeled communists...is the same thing MY PEOPLE have suffered through for DECADES fighting white oppression. Does this mean I hate white people? Absolutely, not. But I am careful and aware; just like my brothas and sistas. And most of us know these things because most of us care about our history and the struggle of our ancestors. The attacks against them haven't changed much. So this is just you quacking like a duck and so I point that out. Labeling us communists was a way to poison other whites (more independent and moderate whites) against Black people because it wasn't simply enough that we were black. No, racists whites needed something else to attack us with because we had the unapologetic nerve to fight for equality.
But as long as my mother lives in a black neighborhood where the home values have been relatively frozen, BECAUSE it's a black area, I can never embrace capitalism as a solution because racists use communist tools to share wealth amongst ONLY THEMSELVES. There is no individualistic (capitalist) way to combat this. It's like one person trying to win a fight against 10. That's not a fight. That's a lynching. And my people are getting lynched economically and financially.
But what do you care? The only law you promote is your own.
