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
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
The 'BlackLivesMatter.com' 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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
This particular person has kept his word when
he spoke in Detroit, Michigan saying,
'Give me a chance what do you have to
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
Will your movement be based on an ABLM pro-biblical agenda or a BLM
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
"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)
