Black Lives Matter Celebrates “Legacy” From Castro

The social justice plague known as Black Lives Matter has dominated social media throughout the past few months.

Their origins were cited as providing awareness to “Black Oppression”, however the group has moved to campaigning for much more than their original intentions.

Shortly after the death of Fidel Castro, the group began to celebrate the “legacy” of the vicious Cuban dictator.

His legacy is full of bloodshed and violence. From humble beginnings, the man ran a campaign of revolution, which he eventually overtook. Fidel Castro led a ruthless campaign which suppressed any who opposed him in his 47-years.

Furthermore, his tenure as dictator led to a mass exodus by many Cubans who eventually saw their way to the United States via immigration. Many regrettably were relocated into American sanctuary cities, such as Little Havana.

The Daily Caller reports:

Reports of Castro’s death came in Friday evening. Castro ruthlessly suppressed those who disagreed with him politically in his 47-year reign.


Thousands of Cubans fled to the U.S. from Castro’s repressive dictatorship and settled in Miami’s “Little Havana.” The Cuba Archive Project estimated the Castro regime killed over 9,200 people.

Many members of the group took to social media to praise the “lessons” learned from Castro throughout his tenure.

The lessons, supposedly learned from the dictator, include the idea that revolution can be started by a single group, and that freedom and peace come only from sacrificial justice.

The Daily Caller reports:

After Castro’s death Friday, Black Lives Matter released an article titled, “Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante.”


“And there are lessons that we must revisit and heed as we pick up the mantle in changing our world, as we aspire to build a world rooted in a vision of freedom and the peace that only comes with justice. It is the lessons that we take from Fidel,” the group claims..

Ironically, the group that campaigned so hard against oppression essentially endorsed a main political supremacist.

The group also addressed the stigma against Castro, challenging that it was necessary to see past the flaws of the dictator.

The Daily Caller reports:

According to Black Lives Matter, there are many feelings that accompany the death of Castro, like fear, loss and anxiety. It is crucial, the article maintains, to defend Castro, despite his “flaws,” against “the rhetoric of the right.”.

The group unsurprisingly compared their social movement to the revolution in Cuba, perhaps to give them a sense of credibility where little is due.

The Daily Caller reports:

“From Fidel, we know that revolution is sparked by an idea, by radical imaginings, which sometimes take root first among just a few dozen people coming together in the mountains. It can be a tattered group of meager resources, like in Sierra Maestro in 1956 or St. Elmo Village in 2013,” the article states.

Regardless of their actions, Black Lives Matter continually works against the goal they are trying to achieve: unity. By continually supporting such violent people and their ways of protest, the group causes more divisiveness across the nation.

What are your thoughts?

Should Black Lives Matter be condemned for supporting such a ruthless dictator?

    These short seeing black racists and anti-democratic group praise communist dictator only when they see themselves like in his dictator throne. But if it would be similar dictator who has opposite to their sick views – they would be killed or best to them – spend their life in Gulag. Do they see and accept such possibility? For now they use liberal democracy and media to express their anti-democratic views
