#BlackLivesMatter #JewishLivesDon't?A group of celebrity #BlackLivesMatter activists calling itself Black-Palestinian Solidarity has set up a website and issued a video supporting the 'Palestinians.'
A year later, the president’s old spiritual leader, Jeremiah Wright, took the microphone at Farrakhan’s #JusticeOrElse rally in D.C. and confounded quite a few with his declaration that “Jesus was a Palestinian.” He was speaking metaphorically, insisting that “the youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine have united together to remind us that the dots need to be connected.”
That union isn’t a metaphor: a group called Black-Palestinian Solidarity has launched a website that explains its mission:Let's go to the videotape.
We choose to join one another in resistance not because our struggles are the same but because we each struggle against the formidable forces of structural racism and the carceral and lethal technologies deployed to maintain them. This video intends to interrupt that process – to assert our humanity – and to stand together in an affirmation of life and a commitment to resistance.The group also released a video featuring activists, artists and some familiar faces, including Lauryn Hill, Danny Glover, Alice Walker, Angela Davis, Cornel West, Boots Riley and many others. (Riley is leader of rap group The Coup, which achieved brief notoriety for its album cover featuring Riley holding a prop “detonator” in front of an exploding World Trade Center tower.)
Of course, it's all lies. Go here to see more.
And if you think that President Hussein Obama doesn't sympathize with this slick group, you're fooling yourself.
Things haven't changed much in the last 50 years, have they?
