Various individuals and groups have participated in the civil rights movement.
Unfortunately, the movement has been highjacked by opportunists like Al Sharpton. Jessie Jackson and increasingly Black Lives Matter (BLM).
BLM was founded by 3 angry teenage girls, two of them admitting to being trained Marxists.
From BLM’s website
In 2013, three radical Black organizers — Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi — created a Black-centered political will and movement building project called #BlackLivesMatter. It was in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman.
#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.
The Black Lives Matter chapter in Washington, D.C., took to Twitter to criticize the support of police officers who are shot in the line of duty. They are frustrated saying they the officers were automatically treated as “heroes” after an officer was shot and wounded Sunday night in Northwest D.C.
A suspect is still at large after opening fire on officers on the street in D.C.’s Petworth neighborhood, the Metropolitan Police Department said. One officer, who has not been named, suffered non-life-threatening injuries from being shot and was treated and released from the hospital, police said.

As the scene was still unfolding, Black Lives Matter D.C. took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against the spread of “copaganda.”
This is the point we’ve been making for months. Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tear jerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job. https://t.co/KqcmTNsnl1 pic.twitter.com/3W6KWp7Ng3

“This is the point we’ve been making for months,” the group tweeted Sunday night. “Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”
“This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong,” the group wrote.
A description of the #StopMPD campaign on the group’s website claims that D.C. is an “occupied police state” that was “never meant to protect” Black people.
“In the fight for Black lives, one of the many rebuffs we receive when demanding an end to police violence and terror is that ‘not all cops are bad cops,’” the page reads. “This assertion is almost always coupled with examples of law enforcement officials who step outside of their assigned duties to ‘help’ Black people and champions the belief that we can change systems by changing the individuals who work within this system, but not the system.
“We’ve seen time and again that doesn’t work,” it continues. “Policing and the system under which police work exists is bound to the enslavement, degradation, and murder of Black people and was never meant to protect us, but instead to exploit our bodies and labor to fill prisons and bolster capitalism. No amount of feel-good videos can deny that truth – no dancing, ice cream peddling, dance videos, BBQ eating COPAGANDA can change that.”
The group also tried to cast doubt on how the situation ended Sunday night after police said no arrests had been made following a barricade.
So… it’s just concluded? No incident or arrests huh? Interesting.
Make it make sense. https://t.co/dYNdfwIykU

Two years ago their “What We Believe” page on BlackLivesMatter.com, was scrubbed, with no explanation offered publicly.
Here is what they don’t want communities to know about their agenda.
“We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.
We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.
We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.
We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.
We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”
The most notable goal that BLM no longer wants to advertise is the disruption of “the western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”
With its direct opposition to the nuclear family, BLM had positioned itself on the fringes of the fringe. And considering that it is precisely the “disruption” of the nuclear family in the black community that has contributed so heavily to the socio-economic problems that plague it, BLM’s affirmation and promotion of this self-destructive trend is especially grotesque and dangerous
