Black Lives Matter is a divisive organization that is actually focused more on politics than the improvement and well-being of black lives. The proof is in the way the organization acts and everywhere it goes, it leaves destroyed black neighborhoods and black bodies in its wake.
While the American sports leagues are still willing to be bullied by the left and embrace the politicized social justice movement, in England it’s a different story. Across the pond, the Premiere Sports League understands what the Black Lives Matter movement really is and as such, is ditching the organization and removing their logos from team jerseys.
Players believe that it’s time for a more neutral anti-racism movement.
I think the majority of the UK have now had enough of that organisation.
A new inclusive and politically-neutral anti-racism movement to follow and get behind is much needed.
Black people’s lives matter! ✊🏾

As reported by The Guardian, the Premier League won’t stop supporting an anti-racism message but will actually focus on it being inclusive for all races, not just focusing on one alongside an organization that tends to gravitate towards being racist itself.
Originally, the players and the league itself were supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement, but its unreasonable demands caused both to begin rejecting Black Lives Matter:
Policies supported by the organisation of the same name, including the defunding of police forces, subsequently proved uncomfortable for the league. The chief executive, Richard Masters, was forced to justify the endorsement in front of a DCMS select committee and told MPs: “We’re drawing a clear distinction between a moral cause and a political movement.”
At that session Masters said the move had not sent a precedent but, after a meeting with the league’s club captains, players will now wear badges once more. The league says the initiative “will build on the momentum created last season”.
“We, our clubs, players and match officials have a long-standing commitment to tackling discrimination,” Masters said in a statement.
“Players rightly have a strong voice on this matter, which we saw last season. We have continued to talk and listen to players on this issue and will support them as well as continuing to emphasise the Premier League’s position against racism.”
“We’re drawing a clear distinction between a moral cause and a political movement” is the most important phrase uttered by an official in any capacity. Even outside of sports, this is an important point about the Black Lives Matter movement.
There is a clear difference between the concept of black lives mattering and the Black Lives Matter movement. One is a standard belief that all western people should embrace in the name of freedom and the true concept of equality. The other is a political organization with Marxist intent as admitted by its founders and its leaders.
This fact is so obvious and the move by the League so logical that it’s a wonder we’re not doing this here in America with our sports teams. It shows you just how deep the social justice movement, and perhaps even the Marxist movement, has its claws in our culture.
