The history of blacks, and a “utopian vision” of society, did not start with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization’s Communist roots. Rather it started in the 1920s when the Soviet Union recognized the value of organizing the black community to fight against “economic and political inequalities.” Thus began the Soviet infiltration of the black community and its churches.
This Soviet movement has morphed into the current BLM’s plan, via anarchy, riots and tyranny, to divide Americans on the basis of race, color and creed. It has become the core of the Democrat Party’s platform of “social justice” using all means available, including violence.
Roots of Black Communism
According to the Black Communism website:
The early 1920s saw an increased membership of African Americans in the Communist Party USA because it was a space for black intellectuals to convey dissatisfaction with economic and political inequalities. It strengthened other civic organizations, such as Langston Hughes’s League of Struggle for Negro Rights, and established forums where black intellectuals could air their concerns, such as the John Reed Club, to “win writers and artists to the revolution.”
The history of black Communists dates back to the 1930s when men like U.S. Communist Party leader Pettis Perry became a member of the International Labor Defense (ILD), the legal arm of the American Communist Party in 1932.
According to Black Past:
He [Perry] overcame his lack of formal education by memorizing Party speeches and resolutions and reading The Communist Manifesto, as well as works by Vladimir Lenin and W.E.B. DuBois.
According to Wikepedia:
The International Labor Defense was a legal advocacy organization established in 1925 in the United States as the American section of the Comintern’s International Red Aid network.

In the spring of 1922 “Big Bill” Haywood, former Wobbly leader turned bail-jumper and defector to Soviet Russia, made a proposal in Moscow to establish a new entity dedicated to the legal defense of political prisoners in the United States, given its level of activity. Representatives of the Communist Party of Poland in Soviet Russia had a similar need, and sought organized support for their jailed comrades in Poland. The Russian Society of Old Bolsheviks and Former Political Exiles and Prisoners, a group whose members had previously raised funds for the support of political prisoners in Tsarist times, acted upon these suggestions late in the summer of 1922. They passed a resolution calling for the establishment of a new international organization for the legal and economic support of left-wing political prisoners.
Black Communists and Their Soviet Slave Masters
Many black Communists saw that they were being used and turned against their Soviet Slave Masters. One of these was Manning Johnson. Manning Johnson published a book in May, 1958 titled “Color, Communism, And Common Sense.” Manning Johnson wrote:
Ten years I labored in the cause of Communism. I was a dedicated “comrade.” All my talents and efforts were zealously used to bring about the triumph of Communism in America and throughout the world. To me, the end of capitalism would mark the beginning of an interminable period of plenty, peace, prosperity and universal comradeship. All racial and class differences and conflicts would end forever after the liquidation of the capitalists, their government and their supporters. A world union of Soviet States under the hegemony of Russia would free and lead mankind on to Utopia.
[ … ]
My zeal, training, both theoretical and practical, combined with loyalty and willingness to sacrifice, changed me from a novice into a dedicated red—a professional revolutionist. Consequently, I climbed rapidly to the National Committee, the highest governing body of the Communist Party in America.
Being an idealist, I was sold this “bill of goods” by a Negro graduate of the Lenin Institute in Moscow.
I saw communism in all its naked cruelty, ruthlessness and utter contempt of Christian attributes and passions. And, too, I saw the low value placed upon human life, the total lack of respect for the dignity of man, the betrayal of trust, the terror of the Secret Police and the bloody hand of the assassin, during and since, those fateful years when I embraced communism.
In Chapter 2 SUBVERTING NEGRO CHURCHES Johnson wrote:
A large number of Negro ministers are all for the Communists. Some are prominent and influential; others are “run of the mill.” They in common believe that beating the racial drums is a short cut to prominence, money and the realization of personal ambitions even if the Negro masses are left prostrate and bleeding—expendables in the mad scramble for power.
Abner W. Berry, columnist in The Daily Worker, official organ of the Communist Party, recently praised these ministers as fulfilling their “historic role,” i.e., delivering the Negro into the hands of the Communists. Neither his pen nor his lips had such praise prior to the 1934-35 period. Then the Moscow line was clear.
The resolution on the Negro Question stated:
In the work among the Negroes, special attention should be paid to the role played by the churches and preachers who are acting on behalf of American imperialism. The Party must conduct a continuous and carefully worked out campaign among the Negro masses, sharpened primarily against the preachers and the churchmen, who are the agents of the oppressors of the Negro race.
All the instructions from Moscow at the time ordered reds to “combat the influence of the church” because the church, “by offering to the Negro worker and peasant for the miseries they are enduring in this world, compensation in heaven, are befogging the minds of the Negro workers and peasants, making them a helpless prey to capitalism and imperialism.”
From the Black Panther Party to Black Lives Matter – Communists One and All
The Black Panther Party (BPP) was founded on socialist/Communist principles and black nationalism. The Black Panther Party, originally the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, was a revolutionary socialist political organization founded by Marxist college students Bobby Seale and Huey Newton in October 1966 in Oakland, California. These same goals apply to Black Lives Matter. The leaders of BLM, like their fore bearers are Marxists.
As the BPP was founded by Marxists so to is BLM!
In a June 25, 2020 New York Post article titled Black Lives Matter co-founder describes herself as ‘trained Marxist’ Yaron Steinbuch wrote:
Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are “trained Marxists” – making clear their movement’s ideological foundation, according to a report.
Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview, Breitbart News reported.
As Manning Johnson wrote:
Stirring up race and class conflict is the basis of all discussion of the Communist Party’s work in the South. The evil genius, Stalin, and the other megalomaniacal leaders in Moscow ordered the use of all racial, economic and social differences, no matter how small or insignificant, to start local fires of discontent, conflict and revolt. “Who could tell which of these issues could start a general conflagration” that would sweep across the former Confederate States from Maryland to Texas?
This race and class conflict is now called “intersectionality.” It is being used by BLM, Antifa and the Democrat Party to divide and conquer America on the streets of cities such as Portland, Detroit, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and even in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Manning Johnson understood what was happening during his time as a leader of CPUSA, “To sink their claws in, subvert and use the Negro people, Moscow must have loyal, dedicated, trained Negro professional revolutionists who can easily be manipulated, that is, made to follow the Party line.”
The end justifies the means for those members of BLM, who are clearly following the Communist, and Democrat, “Party line.”
