Stevie Wonder knows in his heart, mind, and soul that violence begets violence and that paying lip service to peace doesn’t mean a thing.
The legendary singer and songwriter spoke out about Black Lives Matter and gang violence at the North Minneapolis Conference on Peace on Saturday.
“It is in your hands to stop all of the killing and the shooting wherever it might be,” Wonder said. “You cannot say, ‘Black lives matter,’ and then kill yourselves. Because you know we’ve mattered long before it was said, but the way we show that we matter, the way that we show all the various people of color matter is by loving each other and doing something about it. Not just talking about it, not just waiting to see the media and press come when there’s a horrible thing.”
Wonder was being his usual wonderful. And speaking the truth is a wonderful thing.
For years, we’ve been told that the problem of black-on-black violence is the fault of whites and “institutional racism.” The claim has been used to justify horrendous acts of black-on-white violence and to empower leftist radicals who view black violence as a useful tool in fomenting revolution.
The spark that ignited the BLM movement was the shooting death of Michael Brown by a “racist” white cop in Ferguson, Missouri. The facts in the case clearly show that it was Brown who was the aggressor. What possessed Brown to assault a police officer and try to take his service weapon we’ll never know. The cop shot Brown dead in self-defense.
If BLM were as concerned about justice and curtailing violence as it is about promoting a black racial agenda, perhaps then the words of Stevie Wonder would be a more potent force.
Among leftists and their globalist handlers and financiers, it’s all about race, it’s all about exploiting divisions within races and between races and using the chaos to steal the whole bag of marbles.
