DeRay McKesson

BlackLivesMatter founder DeRay McKesson was a guest lecturer for a one credit course at Yale Divinity School.

The title of the course is “Transformational Leadership in the Black Lives Matter Movement” and the topic for Friday was to read In Defense of Looting. The subtitle of the racist piece is, “For most of America’s history, one of the most righteous anti-white supremacist tactics available was looting.”

If he wasn’t teaching this course, he’d be doing what he normally does – nothing.

The Co-Founder is ShordeeDooWhop aka Johnetta Elzie who tweeted this:

Americans have to stop ignoring the racism by radicals like members of BlackLivesMatter. They’re getting a pass.

This group wants the local police nationalized to stop their alleged brutality against blacks. It also happens to be Barack Obama’s goal for them.

The article rails against “white supremacy” and condones violence and looting as political protest. The rationalizations abound:

“Calling breaking a window “violent” reproduces this useless definition and places the whole argument within the rhetorical structure of non-violence ideology. Not-non-violent, then, becomes the more useful term.”

They have a distorted view when it comes to the media:

“The media are more respectful to white serial killers and mass murderers than to unarmed black victims of murder.”

[…]

“…no matter how peaceful and well-behaved a protest is, the dominant media will always push the police talking points and the white-supremacist agenda.”

Separating the looters from the good protesters is bigotry too:

“However, in trying to correct this media image—in making a strong division between Good Protesters and Bad Rioters, or between ethical non-violence practitioners and supposedly violent looters—the narrative of the criminalization of black youth is reproduced. This time it delineates certain kinds of black youth—those who loot versus those who protest.”

They don’t even give JFK any credit.

The last paragraph is all you need to know:

“When, in the midst of an anti-police protest movement, people loot, they aren’t acting non-politically, they aren’t distracting from the issue of police violence and domination, nor are they fanning the flames of an always-already racist media discourse. Instead, they are getting straight to the heart of the problem of the police, property, and white supremacy.”

Should Yale give radicals a forum?
