Princeton University reportedly is offering a course on Black Lives Matter (BLM) taught by a professor with a self-declared “commitment” to the racist ideology Critical Race Theory, and featuring readings by former Communist Party USA (CPUSA) leader Angela Davis.
A Fall 2021 class titled “#BlackLivesMatter” describes the domestic terror movement and the course as “committed to resisting, unveiling, and undoing histories of state sanctioned violence against Black and Brown bodies.” Unsurprisingly, it will also offer “a critical examination of the prison industrial complex, police brutality, urban poverty, and white supremacy in the US.”
One assigned reading will be Freedom is a Constant Struggle by avowed Marxist Angela Davis, who came to prominence in the 1960s as a leader of the CPUSA and the second black woman to make the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List, for her role in a courtroom shootout that resulted in the death of Judge Harold Haley.
The Princeton course will be taught by professor Hanna Garth, who explains on her personal website, “All of my research, teaching, and mentoring is designed around my commitment to feminist methodologies and critical race theory.” Garth’s other interests predictably include “Inequality,” “Race and Racism,” “Social Justice,” and “Activism.”
Our so-called institutions of higher learning are now nothing more than social activism indoctrination mills, guided by Marxist revolutionaries whose end game is, as the Manchurian president Barack Obama put it, the “fundamental transformation” of the United States.

Quantifying BLM’s Responsibility for the Violence and Riots of 2020
A September 2020 Princeton study, sympathetic to the demonstrators, revealed that in the first three months of the unrest which followed the death of George Floyd in May, there had been 570 violent protests in 220 locations. Riots had taken place in 48 of the 50 largest American cities, and 74 of the top 100. There were also “peaceful protests” in some 2,400 separate locations nationwide, according to the Princeton study. But those protests advanced precisely the same Black Lives Matter indictment of America’s allegedly ubiquitous racism, as did the riots. Thus, those “peaceful protests” played a major role in enabling the riots and promoting the notion that the rioters’ grievances were well-founded.
In a separate September 2020 report, the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED), a nonprofit organization that tracks conflict in every part of the world, indicated that BLM actions had taken place in more than 2,400 locations in all 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C. Of the 12,045 U.S. protests that were held in those locations between May 26 and August 22:
- 1,143 protests — i.e., 9.5 percent — involved violence of some sort, such as looting, armed attacks, arson, the launching of projectiles, clashes with police, the use of pepper spray, etc. Of these violent incidents, 84 percent involved BLM.
- 633 protests — i.e., 5.3 percent — were coded as full-blown riots, and 88 percent of these were known to involve BLM activists. But data for 51 of those 633 riots lacked information about affiliations that the participants may have had with any particular group, like BLM. So if we look only at the 582 riots for which information about the participants’ group affiliations is available, we find that BLM activists were involved in 95 percent of those incidents.
Moreover, there were at least 47 civilian fatalities in the BLM riots.
