Black Lives Matter doesn’t really care about saving or improving black lives — just look at the wave of violence that took dozens of black lives — including three children — over the Independence Day weekend, with hardly a murmur of protest from BLM leaders.
The group’s own mission statement proves that its real agenda is entirely political. The statement is riddled with partisan language and expresses clear support for radical ideas — ideas that, when put into practice, destroy black lives.
The most egregious of these anti-black beliefs is the organization’s opposition to traditional family structures and values. “We dismantle the patriarchal practice” and “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement,” BLM’s mission statement proclaims proudly.
But anyone who’s even glanced at the plethora of available data knows that the best way to improve and save black lives is to build strong black families. The greatest threat to the health of our community isn’t “systemic racism” — it’s fatherlessness.
Children raised in intact families are more likely to graduate from high school and college and earn more money over the course of their lives. They are also more likely to be physically healthy than children in single-parent homes.
Comparedto their counterparts in intact, two-parent homes, children raised in homes without their biological father are more likely to have sex at a young age, more likely to engage in substance abuse, more likely suffer from depression, more likely to commit suicide, more likely to do poorly in school and more likely to come into contact with the criminal justice system.
