No poor white or black should  joined or think that any of those groups  that the only thing that they instigate is division, they will not help them at all.
All of those extremists groups do nothing to resolve the racial issue, but instigate more division and violence.
We need to take people out of the boxes that they have put themselves in, in order to what?  instigate others?  create real solutions? Rant?
sorry, will not defend any of them, I don't see the use for any of them or think that they can actually come up with any real solutions.

 A good question MIseker but when you consider the lead in part of the BLM website, you can see how someone could see a relationship:

Area of operations United States

The Black Liberation Army (BLA) was an underground, black nationalist militant organization that operated in the United States from 1970 to 1981. Composed largely of former Black Panthers (BPP), the organization's program was one of armed struggle against the United States Government, and its stated goal was to "take up arms for the liberation and self-determination of black people in the United States."[1] The BLA carried out a series of bombings, killings of police officers and drug dealers, robberies (which participants termed "expropriations"), and prison breaks.[2]

Not the topic. also, i failed to see where the BLA came into the thread. and your 2 statements to not connect to each other.

So it begins.

Your problem with that?                                  

 

Care to comment on the BLM  sponsoring the 'Poverty and Economic Mobility Discussion' that Mlseker posted about?


Yes  I do, again, all of these organizations proclaim that they are better for whomever they are defending. but the division that they create, negates the good that they actually may do to their cause.

If you cannot see the contrast between a single meeting and their self-description offered above, there is no way I can help you understand.
