    Corporate institutions and their Black servants conspire to hide the
    fact that the Black American worldview is profoundly Left on issues of
    peace and social justice.


    "Only 7 percent of Blacks could countenance mass carnage of Iraqi

    But you won't get that kind of insight from #BlackLivesMatter
    name-giver Alicia Garza's Black Census, which is the largest survey of
    Black public opinion in history but asked not one question on
    U.S. foreign policy - as if Black people have no positions on war and
    peace. The Census was paid for by the corporate philanthropy that has
    poured into Black Lives Matter-labeled coffers to yoke the movement
    into the Democratic Party - which prefers that Black people let white
    folks do foreign policy. Garza is glad to oblige and has become a
    major player on the corporate side of the Party. (See BAR, 5 June
    2019, "Black Lives Matter Founder Launches Huge Project to Shrink
    Black Lives." And BAR, 3 Oct 2019, "The Corporate Democrats' (and
    Alicia Garza's) Get-Sanders Slanders.")

    So, while too many of BAR readers, including some of our closest
    friends and collaborators, will on November 3 be rewarding one of the
    duopoly parties for its record of opposing and actively stifling the
    vast bulk of Black public opinion on war and peace and social justice
    issues, please also consider giving support to those organizations
    that reflect the actual majority - and profoundly Left -- Black
    American worldview.
