A week ago Sunday, I thought I would give the NFL a chance and watch the Sunday night game between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs, a bad idea. As soon as I flipped over, I saw the backs of the helmets of the respective teams. The Broncos had “end racism” on their helmets, which is pretty interesting coming from Black athletes making millions of dollars to play catch and run and with a ball. The Chiefs had “Black Lives Matter” on their helmets. I immediately recalled when the NFL told the Dallas Cowboys that they could not have a decal on their helmets in honor of five Dallas law enforcement officers who were killed during a BLM anti-police march downtown. Oh, the hypocrisy. As well, one just has to ask, why would the NFL sanction this on team helmets when the organization, BLM, is headed by avowed, self admitted, trained Marxists. Hmm, was Karl Marx a fan of American football? 

Now consider the latest evidence of insanity from the Dallas City Council, and that is saying a lot. Just last week, the Dallas City Council approved street murals in South Dallas that will display the Black Lives Matter logo. I guess the members of the Dallas City Council are now fully embracing Marxism? Consider this also, the BLM organization even came out in support of a designated Islamic terrorist group, Hamas, as they were raining down rockets and missiles upon a sovereign, recognized nation: Israel.

So, now in Dallas Texas, as with the NFL, we celebrate a group that aligns itself with Islamic jihadism? Doggone, we have really forgotten what happened 20 years ago. Ya know, according to Minnesota Rep, Ilhan Omar, some people did something. Now, it appears chic to give deference — no, public homage — to a group that says it is cool to be an Islamic jihadist organization.

By the way, BLM also stated last week that regardless of the jury decision in the Jussie Smollett case, they stand with someone who is a liar and a fabricator of an incident to stoke the flames of racial division in America.

Yep, just the type of organization that should have a street mural in one of the largest cities in the Lone Star State.
But what I find most amusing is that South Dallas is where you find the largest concentration of the Black community in the Big D. Often folks have asked me: how should one respond when asked if Black lives matter? That is easy: ask the person who is confronting you: which, Black lives matter?

A while ago, I wrote a missive called “A Black Man’s letter to Black Lives Matter.” Yes, I know, regardless of what the quite delusional young black female student at Northwestern University thought, and asked, I do identify as Black. And, I do not have any desire to lighten my skin or change my appearance such as Michael Jackson, nor concoct some insidious lie as Rachael Dolezal did. In that missive, I challenged the absurdity of the Marxist organization BLM because I do not see them in any way concerned about the real issues that face the Black community in America, meaning in South Dallas.

As a matter of fact, the now millionaire founders of BLM, firmly asserted their angst against the traditional nuclear family structure (now removed from their website). Ya know, two parents, mommy and daddy, in the home. They claimed that was somehow part of a white racist ideal. Well, I was glad to have Buck and Snooks West in the home raising me, as some 77 percent of Black kids did back in the 50s and 60s. Today, only 24 percent of Black kids have both a mother and father in the home. This is appalling. Will mere street murals help rectify that?

Since Roe v. Wade — a flawed Supreme Court decision which originated here in Texas — nearly 25 million Black babies have been murdered in the womb. The second largest facility in the world for murdering unborn children by dismemberment is located in South Houston, Planned Parenthood, founded by a real white supremacist and racist, Margaret Sanger. She referred to Blacks as undesirables and human weeds, as she addressed KKK (founded by the Democrat party) rallies. An estimated 73 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority — read Black — communities. Hey, maybe we can put some BLM street murals in front of those death clinics in order to make folks feel warm and fuzzy inside, as another generation of Blacks are murdered in the womb. Ever noticed how the Black community in America, population, seems stuck at 13 percent?

And, if Black kids can get outside of the womb, chances are they will somehow fall victim to crime, shootings, murder — not by white police officer — but from other Blacks. But hey, Black Lives Matter street murals will make the gangs in the Black community stop shooting each other. And, even make the stray bullets that hit little boys and girls take a different trajectory. Or maybe the BLM street murals in South Dallas will bring back small business entrepreneurship or improve the failing public schools in the Black community. Yep, that is all we need, more BLM street murals and stupid decals on NFL players helmets, or have BLM spray painted on NBA basketball courts. Yes, these symbolic measures will fix all the ills that we see festering and destroying inner city Black communities.

And, even better, let’s force more woke, spineless corporate oligarchs, to spray paint BLM murals in front of their headquarters. After all, they should be extorted to give more money so  that the avowed, trained Marxist leaders of BLM can get a few more multi-million dollar mansions. I can just imagine Jesse Jackson, Sr. and Al Sharpton kicking themselves in the buttocks for not being able to develop such a grand shakedown scheme. This folly called BLM has even reached its tentacles across the Atlantic, and soccer teams have their dubious logo on their uniforms.

So, which Black lives matter? 

The answer is quite clear: only the ones that can be leveraged for the advancement of the ideological and political agenda of the progressive socialist left. How abjectly dumb can people be to fall for this grand deception? I must give it to the white leftist masters, once again they have duped mindless lemming Blacks. Just as white leftists created the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and put an avowed socialist, communist Black man in charge, WEB Du Bois, we now have Soros and his like-minded minions doing the same. It was George Santayana who affirmed, “those who fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.”

When I see Black Lives Matter banners on church buildings, I have to laugh at these chuckleheads and wonder, when did Karl Marx ever advocate for Christianity?

The residents of South Dallas and the American Black community need to “take the red pill” and awaken from the Matrix. They need to shake off the yoke of economic enslavement that shackles them, as well as the gimmicks such as street murals. They need to stop being used as pawns in the political chess game of the progressive socialist left. Why? Because if they are not paying attention, a new dependency class is being illegally imported by the left. 

Black Lives Matter, Inc. is a deviously shrewd concept created by leftists. Its sole intention is to ensure Blacks stay on the 21st century economic plantation of the Democrat Party. It is just a mechanism to proliferate the toxic agenda of cultural Marxism. When you consider that we just recently dedicated a monument to Texas State Senator Matthew Gaines on the campus of Texas A&M, did Black Lives Matter celebrate this accomplished man, a former slave? Did BLM raise hell when white leftists tore down the statue of Frederick Douglass in Rochester NY? Does BLM celebrate the philosophy of my ideological mentor, Booker T. Washington, “education, entrepreneurship, and self-reliance?” The answer to these questions is no, but Washington warned us of these Black leftist radicals years ago.

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

— Booker T. Wahsington

As Governor of Texas, I will not allow subversive groups like Black Lives Matter, Inc. to enslave anyone to their white leftist masters. There are two ways to enslave people: work them for no pay, and pay them for no work. That has been the recipe of the Party of systemic racism in America: the Democrat Party. And, they have continued to find a class of people who enable their deception. That is the focus of the upcoming documentary Uncle Tom II. It will be released in February 2022, Black History Month. The documentary — just as with Uncle Tom I — was produced here in Dallas. No street murals, just truth!

Steadfast and Loyal,
