Heather MacDonald, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute recently wrote a piece for Imprimus, the publication from Hillsdale College titled The Danger of the “Black Lives Matter” Movement.
In her piece she breaks down the Black Lives Matter movement and several ways it is antithetical to the betterment of blacks. The entire movement hurts the very people it is supposed to be helping.
For almost two years, a protest movement known as “Black Lives Matter” has convulsed the nation. Triggered by the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014, the Black Lives Matter movement holds that racist police officers are the greatest threat facing young black men today. This belief has triggered riots, “die-ins,” the murder and attempted murder of police officers, a campaign to eliminate traditional grand jury proceedings when police use lethal force, and a presidential task force on policing.
