The Failure of Black Lives Matter and What You Can Do Now

Let me state up front:

Nothing good comes from:

  • Insulting people, especially police officers.
  • Bullying, including snatching microphones from those who are sympathetic to your cause.
  • Chanting “Pigs in a blanket, fry’em like bacon.
  • Causing disruption and destruction

It began with a major media reporting of a shooting of a young, black male named Trayvon Martin by a non-black, middle-aged man named George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman who wanted to become a cop but was rejected.  After the shooting, police refused to arrest Zimmerman claiming self-defense that was never supported by the facts. This resulted in law enforcers including the police and the prosecutors covering up the first degree murder of Trayvon Martin.  See Trayvon Martin murder cover-up.  Thus, any remaining trust blacks had in the criminal justice system, law enforcement, and specifically police was destroyed.

From one young black male, the issue became about all young, black males.  If the Trayvon Martin family had continued to speak out against the injustice for their son given the murder cover-up, despite those controlling their actions and Obama trying to shut them and everyone else up, then a concerted, organized, and strategic effort of those outraged by this injustice could be used to require law enforcement to finally tell the truth and do the right thing.  The Black Lives Matter movement was created as a result of this injustice, but it failed to follow through with this specific incident which would have made the outcome of future incidents have a better outcome since law enforcement would have been put on notice with concrete facts proving a murder cover-up!  In other words, if you fail to check a person, the person believes he can get away with what he is doing.

At the time of the incident in 2012, now President Donald Trump said Zimmerman should have never followed Trayvon Martin. He also said if a camera had been at the right spot, we would know what really happened.  Well my response to Mr. Trump is that a camera was at the right spot in the form of facts, science, reasoning, and common sense.  The problem is that he, like the rest of America, was never told those facts.  Logical deduction is strongly at play here. He didn’t know that then and I think he does not know that now. What if the President found out now?  This would be an excellent opportunity for him to show a caring for the black community.  To automatically assume he would not, is self-defeat. I have informed black leaders of the untold facts and the cover-up of a murder. They did nothing.  The best case scenario is that Trump takes action while “our” black leaders refuse to do so.  Tell him an see what happens. There is nothing to lose, but there is potential for gain.   This is also another opportunity for black leaders to take the action they failed to take in 2013.  They must have the spirit and determination of our elders and ancestors  who were willing to sacrifice their lives during the civil rights movement to be seen and treated like equals.  See Trayvon Martin murder cover-up.  I will also do a YouTube video which will go over the contents in my book.
