The following black leaders have plenty of firsthand exposure to racism, making them ideal candidates to speak out about the insidious agenda of Black Lives Matter (BLM).

The threat of being ostracized as a racist keeps countless patriots silent about BLM’s Marxist threat, but seeing this list of black Americans speaking out will inspire them!

WILLIAMSThe George Mason University economics professor made a salient point when he said, “While it might not be popular to say in the wake of the recent social disorder, the true plight of black people has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been called ‘systemic racism.’ Instead, we need to look at the responsibilities of those running our big cities.”



SHELBY STEELESteele is also a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution.

“I don’t care how many social programs you have. You’re not going to overcome that. That’s where we, as black Americans, have to begin to take our fate back into our own hands and move it — stop crying racism,” he recently said.

ROBERT L. WOODSONThe veteran civil rights activist pointed out an inconvenient truth about the riots that every patriot can get behind: “This is not about social justice. Low-income black Americans are being used by the group to promote insurrection in the country and anarchy… These people are really out to destroy civil society. If a police precinct can be taken over by a mob, then why not your home?”

DAMANI BRYANT FELDERYouTube personality Damani Bryant Felder had a pointed message directly aimed at the “rioting thugs,” telling them, “You do not have the right to put your own fellow citizens of all colors out of work as you raze their places of employment to the ground. You do not have the right to assault the police officers trying to keep you safe as you protest them. You do not have the right to beat small business owners to the brink of death for doing nothing more than trying to protect their own establishments.”

DARRELL SCOTTA megachurch pastor, Scott, told his congregation, “Black Lives Matter is an American domestic terrorist group because they want to advocate the overthrow of the American system of government, to infiltrate our government, to undermine law and order. People have caved to the pressure of the left-wing media. It’s as if the left-wing media has become the propaganda arm for the Black Lives Matter organization.”
