Message to #BLM

The video by Michael Whaley (below) — “Message to the Black Lives Mater movement”— hasn’t gone viral yet, but it should and probably will. I found it on the RealClarPolitics honor roll here this morning. RCP identifies the man with the message as Michael Whaley.

Who is Michael Whaley? I learn from BizPac Review that he is 27 years old and was honorably discharged from the Marines in 2012. He told BPR said he is promoting the fact that all lives matter because the Black Lives Matter movement “only promotes racism.”

“The main reason I made this video is to wake people up,” he told BizPac Review. “And for the black race, because I think we are the main ones being racist.” Will somebody say amen?

Whaley invokes the memory of three young men (unnamed in the video) who were heroes of my teenage years: Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney, all murdered in Mississippi on June 21,1964. Another of my heroes — Minnesota’s own John Doar — led the prosecution of several of the bastards who murdered them in 1967.
