Black Lives Matter Honored With ‘Peace Prize’

Black Lives Matter is set to receive a “peace award” to highlight the group’s work to bring about change in a non-violent way, a foundation announced Monday.

The Sydney Peace Foundation will give the award to the movement’s founders Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi and Alicia Garza in November, reports the Guardian.

Each year the organization tries to honor people who are “leading global voices that promote peace, justice and nonviolence,” the foundation explained. They chose Black Lives Matter because of the movement’s dedication to its “bold and visionary strategies,” the organization said.

Oddly, left out of the award announcement were the multiple instances that BLM talked about killing cops.  Here is one and here is another.  Also left out was their famous phrase of peace, “no justice, no peace,” or the various riots across our country.

Then again, who are we to get in the way of recognizing a “peaceful” group.

    If you look up Sydney Peace Foundation, they do list an email address. I thought they would be interested in knowing a couple of the slogans Black Lies Matter has used and how far from peaceful some of their “demonstrations” have been. They probably don’t care, but I just can’t associate peace with BLM in any way shape or form. But their award, their choice, legitimate or not.

    Give them the perfect award…smash/spray all black ‘honored’ buildings, signs, pictures, mags, etc. Do to them as they have done to others. Remember what the niqqers did Jan 20? Do it to theirs!
