Niger Innis, national spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), spoke self-described “hard-truths” and went after the Black Lives Matter movement and their recent activities.
Separating the movement’s organizers from innocent protesters who want to bring about racial equality and justice, Innis said its leaders are using racial justice as a pretext to advance a radical agenda.
“Look, I don’t have a problem with people exercising their First Amendment rights. You have the right to organize, the right to protest, the right to come up with an agenda,” Innis said. “But I’ll be god-damend if you use the suffer[ing] and misery of black Americans and our legacy to the United States of America as your shield and use us as cannon fodder when your agenda really has not a damn thing to do with saving black lives.”
Innis quoted BLM’s goals from their website:
“We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, and especially ‘our’ children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.”
“They want to overthrow capitalism, they would overthrow Western civilization and they see America as the biggest clear and present danger to fulfilling that agenda and using black people to do it,” he continued.
