(quote) 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 civilians."
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.
