Damon Young of Very Smart Brothas wrote an article entitled 'Black Men Are The White People of Black People' and it has set off a firestorm of criticism. Divisive, clickbait propaganda like this needs to be called out and that's exactly what I do in this Youtube video.
The title speaks for itself. This story will anger you, but with so much going on in this country right now, it probably won't be surprising.
There are a handful of people on the Left who think allying with the alt-right/far-right is a good idea, but it's an idea based on weak assumptions. I explain why in the video, beware of faux progressives.
All Lives Matter is not just a chant, a disruptive way of resisting Black Lives Matter, it's also a mentality. It's a mentality not just limited to white people, but black people as well - and more than you may think. This article addresses some of the signs one can look for to spot those with the ALM mentality in the black community.
I was compelled to write this article as a rebuttal against the notion that protesting hate speech from trolls and provocateurs is somehow a violation of free speech. I show that free speech is a two way street and will not be used as a political weapon to silence dissent. I am disturbed by the number of people on the Left who have fallen for this right-wing okie-doke.
