Black Lives Matter Says You’re a White Supremacist If You Support THIS Document
Eager to play the race card and carry on with this attitude, Black Lives Matter founders Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi told University of Missouri students Thursday that those who support the Constitution are “vowing to protect white supremacy and genocide,” according to Campus Reform.
The two claimed that the Constitution aimed to make an agreement between the states, which were built on the backs of black slaves.
Garza and Tometi explained that the Black Lives Matter movement gained momentum after “the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the murder of Trayvon Martin.”

While emphasizing the importance of activism, the two also urged students to “engage in self-care.”
“Because there isn’t that culture of collective care, it becomes up to each individual to figure out how to be resilient in the face of so much trauma we’re facing,” Garza said.
Garza attacked capitalism during her speech and pointed out, “What we know about our world is that we depend on each other to survive, and that’s not what our economic system teaches us.”
That, actually, is exactly what capitalism teaches — no one succeeds without meeting the needs of someone else. But don’t bother trying to explain that to economic illiterates.
When confronted about the hashtags #AllLivesMatter and #BlueLivesMatter, Garza said they are counter-arguments to the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag. She suggested people stir things up by saying, “You can tell everybody that the founder said ‘All lives matter!’”
She added that while she does believe that all lives matter, that is not the world we live in. She said that’s impossible in a world where “the average life expectancy of a black trans woman is 35.”
The activist also said, “It’s gonna take white people, who benefit from this system of white supremacy, to stand up and say, ‘We’re not gonna take it anymore.'”
I think a lot of white people — a lot of people of all races, really — are ready to stand up and say that. But they’d be talking about the Black Lives Matter movement.
