Black Lives Matter changed the way Americans fight by making the exploitation of black people (specifically black men) the cash crop and black women the mules.
What Black Lives Matter did, was show the Dem Party, nonprofits, special interests and billionaire philanthropists how to co-opt the black struggle for their own agenda… how to exploit black bodies, blood, sweat and tears by putting black faces on the frontlines… how to divide/create riffs within the black community between men and women, young and old, gay and straight that could be exploited using identity politics. And how to divert millions of dollars and resources raised under the guise of fighting for black liberation into the coffers of multimillion dollar white nonprofits.
