Propagotcha: The Press and Black Lives Matter Part 1 begins. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Baptist minister and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. Martin is best known for his leadership in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs. Today in the 21st Century, we have the movement called Black Lives Matter. This modern civil rights movement is not Christian based like King’s approach, but rather some secular offshoot that seems to be very loose with the facts. Black Lives Matter and the role of the press has become somewhat troublesome for white Christians who believed in King’s dream.
The white Christian Community has been forced to see certain realities in their own families that obfuscate America’s promise of equality. There seems to be a giant gulf between what is being said of Black Lives Matter and the realities on the ground. This blog series is an attempt to bridge that gulf and look into the role of the press with the Black Lives Matter movement. If there is to be a reconstructing of race relations in America, both sides need a voice. The threat of Black protests, the shutting down of the free flow of traffic on roads and even violence itself has silenced many white points of view. I know Black Lives Matters does not speak for all black people. Obviously, I do not speak for all Christians or all of the white people. However, I suspect I am not alone in some of my views.
To Be Continued…
