This is not the movement we started in Ferguson,<br><br>”In his lecture, Roberts described Black Lives Matter in 10 terms — a human rights movement, intersectional, feminist, LGBT-driven, youth-led, against the politics of respectability, abolitionist, global, artistic — and a prayer. “<br><br>In Ferguson we stood united as/for black people… black first, allies respected that. We didn’t want a seat at the table, we wanted to flip that mutha over and create our own. <br><br>Black women were not excluded… Jamala Rogers was a voice. Traci Blackmon was a voice. Jamilah Nasheed was a voice. Maria was a voice. Netta was a voice. Ashley was a voice. Brittany was a voice. Toni Taylor was a voice. I was a voice. The whole black women were excluded narrative was a lie.<br><br>Black men were not MIA… they were front and center, face to face, toe to toe, brothas whose names you will never know. The second lie. The black men were missing in action narrative was a lie. <br><br>Nobody cared who was gay and who was straight. Those things don’t enter your mind when you’re being teargassed,chased by tanks, soldiers armed with assault weapons.<br><br>Black Lives Matter passed off the sacrifices of many as their own. With the help of locals who were elevated and anointed leaders. The third of numerous lies, false narratives and outright deception. <br><br>We did not have riffs until Black Lives Matter touched down, co-opted then created riffs as a means to push intersectionality. Standard operating procedure in every place they touched down.<br><br>The older negro guard is dying. BLM is the new younger, Democratic blueprint. They need negros to be about more than negros issues… and to work the plantation.
