BLM uses poor Blacks to back ‘insurrection’ says former civil rights leader
A former civil rights activist and presidential adviser, Robert Woodson, told Lou Dobbs of Fox Business that Black Lives Matter (BLM), aided by corporations, is using low-income Black Americans to foment insurrection in the U.S.
“There is blood on the hands of Black Lives Matter and [the] corporations that are paying for the bricks they’re using to throw through store windows because… [during] this past Father’s Day weekend there was a hemorrhage of Black-on-Black death in Chicago, New York and other cities,” said Woodson.
Chicago and New York have seen tremendous increases in shootings over the last several weeks, as racial unrest roils the country. This past weekend saws scores of mostly Black victims dead across the country shot by other Blacks.
Woodson runs the Woodson Center which helps develop leaders at the neighborhood level to address issues that affect society such as poverty. He served as an adviser to George W. Bush.
Woodson says, in large part, corporations are to blame for the BLM exploitation.
“All of our major corporations are investing in race grievance instead of communities and we must change that, and empower people,” Woodson tweeted. “They must be converted and changed.”
Woodson also blames liberal Democrats who have run blighted cities into the ground.
He says that most of the money given to poverty programs does not go into the hands of the poor residents but of bureaucrats who feed off the poverty that they perpetuate.
“In the past 50 years, $22 trillion has been spent on poverty programs. Seventy percent goes not to the poor but those who serve poor people,” Woodson told Tucker Carlson. “So many of those people taking office use this money to create a class of people who are running these cities.”
So now, he concludes, these same people have to look for someone to blame after 50 years of failure and mismanagement.
“This is not about social justice,” Woodson told Dobbs. “And, again, low-income Black America is being used by the group to promote insurrection in the country, and anarchy.”
