The Black Lives Matter movement should step back from its violent and hysterical behavior and consider the truth regarding the social dilemma it is facing. Black lives certainly matter, as all lives do, but if those protesting in the streets want to understand what has transpired over the course of the decades during which liberal politicians have led the Democratic Party, they should look closely at liberal leadership at the local, state and federal levels.

They may then begin to understand that they have been victimized by the lies and false promises of the same people who have kept them in bondage and poverty for decades, starting in the days when many black families found their way to the big cities in the hopes of a better, more prosperous future. Hopes and dreams turned into a nightmare as those same black families became the victims of the shallow promises of a broken system.

The time is long overdue for black Americans — and all other Americans who have embraced this cancerous ideology — to break free and demand that leadership stop its campaign of lies and false hope. They must insist that all lives have an opportunity to experience the bounty and benefits of a country that encourages and cultivates free choice, not the false narrative of ‘free stuff’ and eternal depravity by the state.
