So…why are the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security investigating the Black Lives Matter leaders and participants? Why has the federal government treated the movement like a terrorist group?
Instead of policing the real threats (white, right-wing extremists), our government, on a local and national level, is trying to intimidate and decimate the struggle against police brutality in black communities and our fight for equity.
Think COINTELPRO deja vu.
Think white privilege.
When DeRay McKesson and Johnetta Elzie are investigated, but Dylan Roof went undetected, America’s War on Black People has never been more obvious.
