9 Ways You Can Support the Black Lives Matter Movement — The Paradigm Press

Hey everyone, I know I’ve been pretty quiet on this page for the past week or so. There’s been a lot going on with the world as a whole and my focus has been on social media (mainly Twitter) to find ways that I could help. Here’s a list that I’ve compiled of 9 ways that anyone can help right now without going to a protest. It’s packed with resources and I hope you learn something from it. Please check it out!

  1. But Black Lives Matter is not just about black lives. This is why you shouldn’t assume everybody wants to support them. I don’t.
    If it was only about black lives, they’d receive no pushback. But it isn’t. BLM is not a bipartisan group. They are a far-left group using tragedies to Trojan Horse leftist politics under the guise of ‘black lives matter.’
    They are anti-police, anti-establishment, anti-capitalist, pro-violence, pro-anarchy. They chant “We want dead cops” and they are openly in bed with antifa.
    I do not support Black Lives Matter. I support a world of racial equality where everyone can feel safe. But that isn’t what BLM stands for.
    They are not just a hashtag. They are a group of ideologues and they are far more about defeating capitalism than they are about racial justice.
    BLM makes sure everyone knows: conservatives have no place in their movement, even though the tragic death of George Floyd is something both conservatives and liberals can agree is horrible.
    We shouldn’t be supporting BLM. We should be supporting some apolitical bipartisan version of them.

    1. Thank you for voicing your opinion. I personally stand with the Black Lives Matter movement and I’m not here to assume that everyone else does. I’m using my platform to voice concerns that are relevant to my community. I personally haven’t heard or seen anyone chanting “We want dead cops” and I don’t believe that that is what BLM is asserting. I personally don’t support a capitalistic system and there has been research conducted into the positive effects that defunding the police can lead to.

      It is okay if you don’t agree with me or my beliefs. Many of my personal beliefs may come off as radical for you. I don’t consider myself a Democrat or Republican, but what I do want is change. I want to live in a world where racial reconciliation is reached and open dialogues about race are normalized. My tagline for this blog is “If you’re colorblind, you’ll miss the rainbow” for a reason. This blog was created to bring attention to marginalized communities and their stories and I stand by that. If you’d like to learn more about how the policing system has perpetuated ideals of white supremacy, I would highly recommend the documentary 13th directed by Ava DuVernay.
