The controversial Black Lives Matter organization finds itself making negative headlines once again after releasing a statement on Cuba that heavily criticized America while failing to mention communism.
Taking to Instagram, the official Black Lives Matter organization blamed the United States government’s “inhumane treatment of Cubans” for the dire poverty most Cubans suffer.
They called American polices “cruel and inhumane” and said “since 1962, the United States has forced pain and suffering on the people of Cuba by cutting off food, medicine and supplies” instead of pointing to the brutal, dictatorial communist regime that has been controlling the country and oppressing people since Castro assumed power.
They also praised Cuba for “protecting” Assata Shakur, who is a domestic terrorist convicted of first-degree murder of a State Trooper back in 1973. She later escaped from prison and eventually fled to Cuba.
The comment has received plenty of criticism, particularly from conservatives who have previously claimed BLM is more dedicated to Marxism than racial equality.
Since rising to prominence for their controversial views on things such as being against the nuclear family, a sentiment that was deleted from their original website write up. It read, “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
Founder Patrisse Cullors brought more negativity to the organization when video surfaced of her saying they are “trained Marxists” followed not long after by the revelation Cullors owned several luxury homes.
