In a 2015 interview with Real News Network, Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Patrisse Cullors revealed that many of those within the movement, including herself, consider themselves to be “trained Marxists.”
Discussing a lack of ideological direction within the movement, Cullors argued that the movement does “have an ideological frame… Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories,” she continued.
“We don’t necessarily want to be the vanguard of this movement,” Cullors added. “I think we’ve tried to put out a political frame that’s about centering who we think are the most vulnerable amongst the black community, to really fight for all of our lives.”
If anyone had any doubts before, this confirms that Black Lives Matter is a radical, subversive Marxist organization bent on dismantling Western capitalism and “fundamentally transforming” America into a communist state.
