Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Says “White Folks” Need To “Sacrifice” THIS
The leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement have said many stupid things over the past several months, but co-founder Marissa Jeanae Johnson may take the cake for the dumbest thing said yet.
Breitbart reported that Johnson, in an interview with Fox News, stated that white people need to “sacrifice” themselves in order for blacks to be equal.
“What it’s gonna take to dismantle white supremacy is white folks actually gotta give up something,” she explained. “You have to actually sacrifice yourself. You have to be willing to give up the things that you currently benefit from.”
It’s this sort of zero-sum rhetoric — the assumption that for one person to improve their lives another person must worsen theirs — that increases racial tensions in America as opposed to actually working to mitigate them.
Johnson also went on a rant blaming white America for the Black Lives Matter movement, stating that white America created a situation where the slogan was needed.
“White Americans have created the conditions that require a phrase like ‘Black Likes Matter,'” she said. “Do you know how horrific it is to grow up as a child in a world that so hates you? While you’re literally being gunned down in the street, while you’re being rounded up and mass incarcerated and forced into prison slavery.”
Apparently Johnson has never been to Chicago where blacks gun each other down in the streets every day
Apparently their lives don’t matter as much as those of black criminals who attack police officers.
“The Democrats have always been reliant on the black vote,” Johnson said, explaining why she interrupted Bernie Sanders in August.
“Part of what we’re doing is waking black voters up to their power as a voting bloc, within the Democratic party.”
Maybe if the Democrats stopped pandering to people like Johnson, people who are arguably more racist than the vast majority of Americans, there wouldn’t be so much racial tension in America.
