The Right’s Attack on Black Lives Matter is Economic

Black Lives Matter at the core is about the restoration of the sanctity of Black American life in America. BLM at the core seeks to elevate to value and essence of Black lives in America in the post industrial era after the shelf life of the Civil Rights Era in America.

America in the recent decades has brutal and destructive and poverty stricken for a wide bandwidth of Black Americans not just the usual suspects the Black poor but the housing collapse and the recession of in late 2000’s was also devastating for the Black Middle Class and the wealth gap between White America and Black America widen significantly.

Those who refuse to explore the themes of the BLM Movement fail to understand and recognize the scope and depth of the BLM movement it encompasses more than an end of lethal police protocols and activities but the objective of the BLM Movement seeks to augment the quality of Black life across the entire political , social and economic spectrum of America. BLM Movement seeks to augment educational achievement in every venue of Black America. The BLM Movement seeks to bring the cultural genius of Black Americans into every social policy theatre in America from the public policies of local and state and federal governance to the economic goals of corporate America.

Yet in America of late those who oppose the BLM Movement besides the racists and bigots who are always in the forefront of anything Black in America there is a another more destructive collective and massive segment of America that seeks to end the life of the BLM Movement. The opposition to the BLM Movement has racist undertones but that is the simple analysis in fact the foundation of the objection to the BLM Movement is all about following the money.

This force is the collective in White America that profits from the decay and decadence of Black America . The raw reality is the fact that large segments of White America livelihoods depend on Black decay and despair . White lawyers, landlords, doctors, prisons , supermarkets , check cashing firms, banks and others in the financial system are linked to the despair in Black America.Food stamps drive the revenues of large supermarket chains as well as large industrial agriculture enterprises . Government payments to landlords of poor Black families buttress the bank accounts of corporate land lords. White lawyers make a brisk income on racial profiling of Black defendants .

The entire charter school industry is underwritten by preying on vunerable Black families desperate for quality educational opportunities and outcomes for their kids. Political parties platforms are based on the pain and suffering of the  Black electorate. Media platforms need drive by shootings and urban carnage to sell papers and produce clicks on their web sites. Crime prevention services are a lucrative business in not only Black venues but White suburbia is a gold mine for the fears of Black criminals coming to dinner.

Religion is also a lucrative extortion business for those operating in saving souls and appealing for tithes in exchange for comfort and prayer in dealing with the  grief  and despair of urban Black America. In fact one can opine for decades and decades the social welfare therapeutic network has harvested the agony of Black suffering for the same economic themes of their cohorts.

The harsh truth is that BLM Movement is an obstacle and barrier to the money making yields of Black decay and decadence . BLM Movement is a social prescription that many in White America and others rush to get approved in the marketplace.  BLM Movement is a threat to a very profitable business in America.

Black Lives Matter  for all the wrong reasons for so many in America.
