Comparing BLM to decapitations? I see their web site differently than you


One of their main points was using the village to raise kids and not leave Black women to raise their children alone. They are advocating Black men to step up and do what's right. They are advocating breaking away from gang centered communities.

Here's what I saw on their website, positions that you didn't mention:

We embody and practice justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.

We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.

We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children.

We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.

We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

I don't see where they want to do away with nuclear family, but to disrupt it into involving a community to help raise a child. Disrupt, not eliminate nuclear family. Sounds like something that would be very good in inner cities. Look out for each other.

You really dig deep to find fault with Black folks. What happened to you along the way that causes you to be so conspiratorial?
