Martin Luther King’s dream for America was one of unity among all people regardless of race, a place of no bigotry, a place of no racial strife, a place where a person would be judged not by the color of his or her skin but by the content of his or her character. He believed in the promise of the Declaration of Independence and called upon America to allow that promise to reach its black citizens equally with its white citizens. His dream was one not of exclusion, separatism and hate but of inclusion, unity and love. He said, “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” He wanted children regardless of race to be sisters and brothers, all Americans. He disavowed the politics of segregation, racism, and racial violence.

For that reason, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X were ideological opposites. During his Nation of Islam phase, Malcolm X called for the overthrow of “white people” whom he referred to as “devils.” Malcolm X argued that “blacks are superior to whites” and that blacks would eventually take-over the world. Malcolm X called Martin Luther King Jr. a stooge for the white establishment and referred to King’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech as a “farce.” Malcolm X believed the black and white races could never integrate and should never integrate because of black supremacy.

The Black Lives Matter movement more readily subscribes to the views of Malcolm X than it does the legacy of Martin Luther King. Like Malcolm X, the Black Lives Matter movement does not embrace the Declaration of Independence and the promise of equal justice under law and racial harmony for all. Instead the movement denounces the United States and all American institutions and advocates racial strife as a means to promote the interests of blacks at the expense of law and order.

On the Black Lives Matter web site, the group explains its creed. In reference to the United States, they write: “This corrupt democracy was built on indigenous genocide and chattel slavery. And continues to thrive on the brutal exploitation of people of color. We recognize that not even a Black president will pronounce our truths. We must continue the task of making American uncomfortable about institutional racism. Together, we will re-imagine what is possible and build a system that is designed for Blackness to thrive.” Theirs is a racist focus, aimed entirely on condemning all contemporary American institutions on the supposition that all whether public or private oppress blacks, a proposition without proof. They aim to bring down institutions of government at all levels and among all political parties because, for them, those institutions are inheritors of white racist sins of yesteryears. In their mind set, everyone who is white and every government institution, regardless of the color of those who govern, are infected with a history of exploitation of people of color that persists even if those who govern do not want it to persist. Likewise, they aim to bring down institutions of commerce at all levels because, for them, those institutions are also infected with white racist sins of yesteryears.

To quote from the Black Lives Matter web site: “Historically, all political parties have participated in the systemic disenfranchisement of Black people. Anti-black racism, especially that sanctioned by the State, has resulted in the loss of healthy and thriving Black life and well-being. Given that, we will continue to hold politicians and political parties accountable for their policies and platforms. We will also continue to demand the intentional dismantling of structural racism.”

In sum, the Black Lives Matters movement views American institutions as incontrovertibly anti-black and doomed to brutalize blacks. The anti-black infection is, in their view, an inherited characteristic of American democracy, is systemic and is incurable. They therefore advocate dismantling all that is, both public and private. They condemn every government entity, every government actor, and every private entity and actor as part of “structural racism,” as if anti-black sentiment is embedded in the concrete of each building and the DNA of each person. With a racist sweep, they condemn all as they brandish all institutional racists.

They oppose all of the foundations and emblems of America, its Declaration of Independence, its Constitution, and its systems for law and order, which they also ascribe as by-products of structural racism. It is as if anti-black racism exists everywhere, even in those who have never acted against a person based on the color of their skin in their lives (indeed, even in those who have fought against racism in their careers). By this logic, anti-black racism can never be eliminated from America because it once existed in America and can never be said to be non-existent in any person because all are infected with the viewpoint in one way or another. In this way, black government officials are condemned as promoters of institutional racism with the same enthusiasm as white government officials are so condemned and liberal politicians, like Bernie Sanders, are cowed into shame with equal zeal as conservative politicians.

Although King advocated peaceful, non-violent protest and called for blacks to be included within the American dream, protected in their entitlement to the blessings of liberty promised all in the Declaration of Independence, the Black Lives Matter movement advocates dismantlement of American institutions and subservience of the nation to the political and economic agenda it identifies for blacks only. Theirs is a racist agenda similar to the agenda Malcolm X called for during his Nation of Islam phase.

In their world view, the fact that it is common for white people in America today to the view racism as evil, to work peacefully alongside people of various colors and nationalities, to die in battle for fellow Americans of color, to promote people of color based on merit, to marry people of color, to adopt people of color into their families, and to commune with people of color in sports, in worship, and in leisure activities is of no consequence. In their world view, such people are still anti-black because racism is a structural characteristic of America, a stain that never leaves white flesh.

In this way, the advocates of the Black Lives Matter movement are the ideological equivalents of white supremacists. Whether one is a black supremacist or segregationist or a white supremacist or segregationist matters little because each subscribes to the ideology of race based nationalism, an ideology utterly antithetical to freedom and justice.

When racial hatred is used as a source of inspiration for action, the result is invariably destructive, often entailing loss of life, looting, and begetting of more racial hatred, strife, and violence. It is precisely this kind of racism that has given rise to the most destructive forces in world history, including Nazism, eugenics, Jim Crowism, McCarthyism, and racial cleansing all over the world. Nothing constructive comes from race based exclusion and dismantlement of institutions aimed at bringing down one race to advance the interests of another. Ironically, while the Black Lives Matter movement condemns racism against blacks it advocates dismantlement of all American institutions on racist grounds (that these institutions are hopelessly anti-black). In this way, Black Lives Matter is indistinguishable from historic forces of discrimination that have pit one race or group of people against another as a justification for tearing down institutions of all kinds.

Black lives do matter, as do White lives, Asian lives, Hispanic lives, and the lives of all people on earth. It is the content of individual character, not the color of skin, that dictates the value of each individual. All lives matter most in a just society built upon the concept of equal justice under law and unalienable individual rights.

That is our American inheritance, which richly deserves celebration, not desecration. All lives matter most in a society where the principles of our Declaration of Independence are upheld regardless of race and are deemed a birthright for all. That is the American ideal which the Black Lives Matter movement condemns. Rather than condemn that ideal and the emblems that represent liberty and justice for all, like the American flag, supporters of Black Lives Matter should celebrate them and, like King, demand that they apply to all regardless of race.

Instead, the Black Lives Matter movement has adopted a backward ideology that offers no promise for the survival and success of liberty. They have become the black versions of Bull Connor and Governor George Wallace, embracing racial intolerance and separatism rather than equal justice and liberty for all regardless of race.

For those of us who disagree with the pronouncements made by this movement, if we are true to our founding principles we will defend to the last their right to communicate odious doctrine. But it is our duty to reveal the falsity present and advocate that people regardless of race embrace, instead, the eternal truths written in our great Declaration of Independence, that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, that among those are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and that, indeed, the truths of the declaration are the birthright of all people regardless of race.
