“BLM Brings Blundering Beings! ABLM Attracts All African-Americans!”

Ramesh C. Reddy

  As an Evangelical Christian, when I used to see churches that displayed 'Black Lives Matter' outside their church bulletin display, I used to think how can churches be so biased in favor of one race group when 'All Lives Matter'. When I used to see banners that displayed, 'Black Lives Matter', I felt the same way.

Since then, my thinking has changed not because of what I hear from politicians but because of what I read in God's Word. I  was really impacted by Jesus telling the story of the 100 sheep where one sheep was lost, but the shepherd did not focus on the 99 sheep he still had. Instead, the shepherd focused on the one sheep that was in danger because of the wolves that come to tear apart and kill. Sheep come in all colors such as white, black, brown, dark chocolate brown, spotted, piebald, etc. So, let us assume that the lost sheep was black and in danger.

"Did this black sheep have any less value than the other 99 sheep that were safe?"

No, if anything based on the story Jesus told, this sheep had more value to it than the 99 safe sheep because it was in danger. The Shepherd did all he could to find that sheep and rescue it. When the black sheep was found, he rejoiced over it more than the 99 safe sheep he had. This did not mean that the 99 sheep were loved any less or valued any less but the focus was on loving the sheep that was lost and in danger.

When Jesus told the story, I believe He was also alluding to Himself as the Good Shepherd being so concerned for those that are lost and in danger. Jesus is concerned for all those that are in danger spiritually, physically, emotionally, relationally, mentally, etc. Jesus reminded those that looked down on the marginalized, sinners, etc when they thought they had it all together that Jesus did not come for the righteous but for those that the world saw as scum. Yet, they were not scum in Jesus' eyes but so precious even though they were the ones in danger.

Right now, Black people have been going through a lot in this country with all the shootings, etc. They need our help. But not only in this area but all areas that affect Black lives matter!

When 'Black Lives Matter (BLM)' started, it was in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's killer, George Zimmerman. It was started in 2013 by three radical Black organizers --Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors during President Obama's second term.

The '' website states, 'Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks' humanity, our contribution to this society, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression."

"Who can be against that kind of vision statement when the core tenets are followed through?"

I love movements or protests that have so much credibility. But here lies the problem with 'BLM 2020' because not only are they not credible but it has become more radical and leftist, moving away from their vision. They state that they are an 'ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.' They say 'It is an affirmation of Black folk' humanity, contribution to society, and resilience in the face of deadly oppression."

Yet, not once have I seen BLM protestors from any 40 chapters, etc at an abortion clinic or Planned Parenthood headquarters/clinic to protest Black lives that are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. I have not seen them affirm Black folks humanity, contribution to society, and resilience in the face of deadly oppression!" What I have seen from them is the killing of statues instead of protecting all black lives.

According to Walt Blackman, a Black politician, since the 1973 Roe vs Wade, Supreme Court ruling, more than 19 million Black babies were aborted.

A study by 'Protecting Black Lives' in 2012, found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood's surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of minority communities. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) statistics, abortion is the leading cause of death among blacks.

Let us not forget Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who was eventually charged with the murder of a woman that had died from a botched abortion, and for several "live birth" abortions where he had killed babies born-alive at an abortion mill in a black community.

When doctors who take an Hippocratic oath to serve and protect life, use their instruments for death, how should that make me feel?

They press and press their instruments, killing a life that has breath by suffocating the air out of them and pulling them apart.

What would you do if you heard a baby in the womb use these words: 'I can't breathe, I can't breathe, Mama, Mama, I am going to die, they are going to kill me'?.

This baby made in the image of God, being ruthlessly killed and pulled apart by a doctor and his team, that was supposed to trust to serve and protect. Instead, the baby is seen as less than human by the doctor's viscious actions. A Black baby is not protected daily and the Black babies rights have been violated.

What if you saw the video of what happens during an 8 min abortion procedure when a white doctor uses an instrument and goes inside the body of a black woman and suffocates the black baby?

Wake up! Don't kid yourself. All Black Lives Matter (ALBM)!!! It is white doctors that mostly kill black babies. This is not to say that black doctors don't kill black babies.

Remember the viscious killer Dr. Kermit Gosnell?

Planned Parenthood deliberately has over 79% clinics that are of walking distance of minority communities. They want to kill Black babies using white doctors. All Black Lives Matter!.

Yet, you have not seen even one BLM chapter protest at abortion clinics because they pick and choose which black lives matter. They don't think black lives in the womb are equal to black lives killed by police. Because they are so radical and left just as the mainstream media is, they won't report killings of black lives in the womb.

When Gosnell was on trial, the media gallery was basically empty because it does not fit their narrative.

Where was the celebration when Jemarius, the youngest surviving Black preemie in the world who was born only at 21 weeks weighing 13 ounces and shorter than a ruler is long, was finally released from the NICU being just short of 9 pounds, 3 days ago? 

The BLM could have celebrated this victory but they did not. The mainstream media could have given Jemarius full coverage but it did not.

The reason is that the BLM movement is okay with the killing of Black babies even when it is done by predominately white doctors of Planned Parenthood. In this situation, whites are not oppressors anymore because they are helped. Yet, these same people want to protest the killing of Floyd by a white police officer. They should but let us be consistent!

Where is the credibility?

There is no credibility!

When  Black officers of the law died during the BLM protests and anarchy, did the BLM protest their death?

Of course not!

This has never been about 'Black Lives Matter' because all Black lives don't matter to the BLM movement. Let us not kid ourselves!

When 19 million Black babies died who could have lived as Jemarius lived after being born in 21 weeks, when a 3-year old black baby was killed in Chicago, when Black officers were killed all over during protests, where was the outcry?

There is no outcry because it has never been about 'All Black Lives Matter' but only black lives that give credence to their movement such as Trayvon Martin, George Floyd, etc. It is good that they are protesting their deaths but their credibility and vision statement is shot out the door. What this movement is more about is ensuring the killing of Black babies, supporting Black homosexuality, a Black anti-family agenda.

So, I stand in opposition to the BLM as we have now not because I don't believe black lives matter but I believe all black lives matter: Black lives at the hands of white police, black lives at the hands of white abortionists, black lives supporting a biblical agenda, they matter!

If  BLM movement  is to to mean anything to me, they need to get back their credibility. They have no credibility in my eyes because these verses mean nothing to them:

"Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don't stand back and let them die. Don't try to disclaim responsibility by saying you didn't know about it. For God, who knows all hearts, knows yours, and he knows you knew! And he will reward everyone according to his deeds!" (Proverbs 24: 11-12, TLB)

"You created all the delicate inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex. Your workmanship is marvelous and how well I know it. You were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion. You saw before I was born and scheduled all the days of my life before I began to breathe. How precious are your thoughts towards me Oh Lord. I cannot even count how many times a day your thoughts turn towards me and when I wake up in the morning, you are still thinking about me!" (Psalm 139:13-18, TLB)

The Lord said to me, "I knew you before you were formed within your mother's womb; before you were born I sanctified you and appointed you as my spokesman to the world." (Jeremiah 1:5, TLB)

"To plan evil is as wrong as doing it! My son, watch your step before the Lord and the king, and don't associate with radicals. For you will go down with them to sudden disaster, and who knows where it will all end?" (Proverbs 24:8, 21-22, TLB)

You will never see BLM come to the rescue of Black police officers who have died in the line of duty but Black officers are usually ostracized for joining the PD. You will not see this group march at the March for Life to save the millions of Black babies murdered by white doctors in abortions, you will not see this group protesting injustice of Blacks who lost their jobs because of their Christocentric views and you will never see them come to the rescue of Blacks who are conservative because of their Evangelical Biblical views because they are seen as sell outs, tokens, Uncle Tom, or not Black enough.

This is wrong and that is why I do not support BLM movement as it is because  it is a radical, leftist political movement that has lost credibility. That said, I support all black lives matter because black lives do matter to me such as black on black crime, black unborn babies killed by white doctors, black unemployment because of the color of their skin, black hardship because of family brokenness, etc. They all matter to me and should matter to you.

Supporting Trump because a person believes he has done more for the Black community than any other president in history other than Abraham Lincoln and Lyndon B Johnson does not make that person racist. I support the Black cause but it has to be moral too and credible.

Trump was not my first choice but the greatest neurosurgeon Ben Carson, an African American was my first choice to be president because I knew he would make a difference in the lives of Blacks than Obama did. I even supported Alan Keys. I think even Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas would make a great president with his policies. They are all Black. Obama was not opposed by people because he was Black as much as because majority of his policies were unbiblical to a lot of us.

But you will never see the media supporting them because they don't fit their narrative. A politician to say to a Black person if they vote for Trump, 'You ain't Black' is the worst racist statement I have heard but it gets a free pass from the BLM and media. It should not be that way.

Imagine if Trump had said that?

Just because someone opposes or speaks out against BLM does not make them racist. This is happening right now. No matter how much I have used my life to contribute to making Black lives better, people won't remember none of that but only remember the negative if I oppose BLM. It should not be that way!

When Blacks opposed me and called me names, I took it and showed them Christ's love. What I will not stand is politicians or even the BLM pandering to the Black vote that they have done year after year and not shown much results for them. It is one thing to pander to a group and show results to that group by saying 'see I told you I would do it'. It is totally another thing to take their vote for granted and label the other side as racist. I will still show Christ's love but I will also speak out against BLM.

Black lives matter to me but they are being systematically brought to demise by politicians year after year who have not done much for them. Yet, like slaves they want you to vote for them.

Otherwise who would have the audacity to say, "You ain't Black' to a Black talk show host if you vote for Trump. He might as well have said, 'Boy, you are voting for me if you know what is good for you' because that is exactly how I took it. Yet, the BLM supports this guy and his party. He started out as a racist and probably is a closet racist who just wants your vote my Black brothers and sisters in Christ! This is outrageous. This is how this party views you!

There are almost 20 cities in the hands of a particular party where Blacks are suffering terribly. This party panders to them each year with no solid results. They had a president and control of both Houses of Congress for 2 years but the president was more concerned about using Congress to repeal Defense of Marriage Act, 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy, and making abortion on demand for Blacks. Even with Obamacare, he wanted to make sure babies died in the womb!

This president had an opportunity to pass a strong police reform bill, but did he?

No, he did not! I wish he had! Sadly, he even chose somebody who was responsible for the worst crime bill in U.S history that incarcerated Blacks disproportionally and sided with segregationists.

Now the 20 cities that are controlled by a particular party have seen crime rise off the roof including anarchy.

Yet, the BLM supports them!

You have to ask yourself why?

As an Independent Evangelical Indian who loves the Black community and wanted to work as an intern at Schuman Juvenile Detention Center years ago which houses predominately Black juveniles, I was thrilled to see the passage of 'The First Step Act' that benefits thousands of Black Americans who have been incarcerated. Not only that, I am so proud of the low unemployment rates for Blacks because of our president, and all the zones that have been created to help Black people.

If BLM really cares for Black people, they would care less which party it is as long as Black people are thriving and a party keeps their word.

This particular person has kept his word when he spoke in Detroit, Michigan saying, 'Give me a chance what do you have to lose?'

He has not disappointed them!

For the BLM who want to point fingers at a particular party, they need to be more focused on the party that is controlling 20 cities plus where Blacks are dying everyday. The police shootings have predominately been in places where that party has been in power. The riotings and anarchy have also been where that party is in power.

My Black brothers and sisters in Christ, stand with me using evidence to see who is really supporting you. If you decide to let fear support you, then you do not give a place for love. Don't fall for the 'we have been told this party is not for Black people so we believe and vote for another party'. Do the research yourself!

As an Evangelical independent voter, I vote on issues as I pray the Bible. You should too. Your vote maybe different than mine, but let the Lord, His Word, and your honest research influence you than any movements, media, etc.

All Black Lives Matter so please let us come to the rescue of All Black Lives Matter and not just people who fit our narrative and political view.

Will your movement be based on an ABLM pro-biblical agenda or a BLM anti-biblical agenda?

My Black brothers and sisters in Christ, our first allegieance should always be to Christ. If we say yes, to that, we will live by the Word of God and come to the rescue of the downtrodden.

"Will you join me in supporting 'All Black Lives Matter'?"

In conclusion, churches need to be very careful when they support BLM, what are they actually supporting and change their stance to ABLM.

"To plan evil is as wrong as doing it! My son, watch your step before the Lord and the king, and don't associate with radicals. For you will go down with them to sudden disaster, and who knows where it will all end?" (Proverbs 24:8, 21-22, TLB)

Reddy's right rhetoric takes you into the 'Black Lives Matter (BLM)' movement and exposes their falacies and credibility exhorting them to be about 'All Black Lives Matter' (ABLM)
