The creation of Black Lives Matter by Afro-Americans has spawned the creation of many movements that are hostile to it. Why?
Since the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement of African Americans, we are witnessing the birth of a countles number of movements that borrow the last two words "Lives Matter" from Black Lives Matter but basically wage war against it. These include "All Lives Matter", "Blue Lives Matter" and "White Lives Matter". Why the birth of these movements hostile to Black Lives Matters who challenge it and who accuse it of segregationism, of racism or terrorism among others?
Well, we must see in the birth of these movements the domineering and possessionist reflex of that fraction of Whites which dates from the first hours of slavery and which consists in making every effort to prevent the slave from regaining his freedom and to emancipate himself. The weapons to achieve their goals are now more varied than at that time but the objectives are the same. Black Lives Matter has never, to our knowledge, ever denied the importance of other lives. On the contrary, all the action of Black Lives Matter is based on the foundation that all lives are important, including those of animals and plants. Since the lives of Black people are also lives there is no reason why they should not be important. The problem is that, the repressive and slavery-like apparatus set up by some countries, both in administration and in everyday life, show the opposite: Blacks are discriminated against, despised, insulted beaten up, killed and dishonored without the perpetrators being punished. It has become normal for Afro-Americans, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Canadians etc... to be excluded from education, employment, health and housing systems. They have for decades and centuries attracted the attention of system makers on this state of things but to no avail. Is black dignity not important (at least for Blacks)? This is why BLack Lives Matter was born to remind us that what is normal for other human beings must also be so for Black people. No more no less!
The resurgence of antagonistic movements at Black Lives Matters testifies to the fear of certain groups of racists of losing their privileges unjustly acquired. These movements are an attempt to preserve a system that benefits only this fraction of dishonest men and women whose aim is to crush the blossoming of the Blacks to better assert their supremacy.
We believe that Black Lives Matter who lit a candle that future generations should not let go, will not let it happen.
