The irony isn’t lost on me…Here’s a couple who’ve benefited off of capitalism and all that it brings yet you wouldn’t know it because of their anti-American attitude. Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z owe their success to the very system the leftist Black Lives Matter movement is intent on destroying.
They were given a police escort from the stadium last night. Guess they didn’t mind the cops then.
They visited Cuba for vacation before our supposed “normalization” with the communist nation. They refer to the illuminati and Malcolm X with regularity. The Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter movements are supported by Beyonce and Jay Z. You have to ask yourself why a couple with so much anti-American hate is supported by the people. Is it time to reject those who would openly support and even finance a movement like Black Lives Matter that calls for violence against cops? Do we continue to just say they’re “edgy” and this is just what they do so go with it? Objecting and boycotting these people will send a big message to them because it’s all about the money in the end. Have you seen these people in a Chicago neighborhood helping the youth or mentoring them? Yea, didn’t hunk so. If we want to actually find solutions for all the death of black youth then why doesn’t the black community look in the mirror. But then that wouldn’t sell tickets to Beyonce’s latest song or concert tour would it? Yea, they care so much…not! The bottom line is that most Americans are really 100% FED Up! with these pot stirrers.
With references to the Black Lives Matter movement, Malcolm X and the Black Panthers, Beyoncé’s half-time show at the Super Bowl on Sunday might be the most radical political statement from the superstar in her 20-year career.
Backing dancers wearing Black Panther-style berets and clad in black leather were photographed after the performance posing with raised fists evocative of the black power salute by Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City.
BEYONCE’S PRO-BLACK PANTHER PERFORMANCE:
Snapped backstage, the dancers also held a picture with the slogan “Justice 4 Mario Woods”, who was shot dead last December by police in San Francisco, this year’s Super Bowl host city.
The dancers’ visual homage to the Black Panthers marked 50 years since the formation of the group, which had its roots in Oakland, less than 50 miles from the stadium where the Super Bowl was played.
Founded by Huey P Newton and Bobby Seale, the movement was a revolutionary black nationalist organisation and one of the most influential civil rights group of the late 60s, but its connections to illegal activities led then-FBI director J Edgar Hoover to call it “the greatest threat to the internal security of the country”.
Beyoncé was widely tipped to be preparing to make a deeply political statement with her Super Bowl show after releasing a surprise single and video, Formation, on Saturday, which referenced both Hurricane Katrina and the recent mass protests across the US over police killings of unarmed young black men.
The video shows Beyoncé sitting on top of a police car and includes scenes showing a young black boy dancing in front of lines of riot police, who put their hands up, before cutting to a wall of graffiti that reads: “Stop shooting us.”
On Friday, Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z announced that he would donate $1.5million (£1m) raised at a charity concert run by his streaming service Tidal last year to the Black Lives Matter movement and other social justice organizations.
