I warned about 'allies' and movement leaders pushing gender and identity wars during the peak of Ferguson. This is not something I read or something regurgitated... I was there. This is how "Hands Up Don't Shoot" and an organic movement that reignited our struggle became "Black Lives Matter", an astroturf movement funded/controlled by billionaire philanthropists, nonprofits and the Democratic Party.
That is how we went from fighting back and staring down tanks to pink pussy hats and standing in solidarity with everyone but ourselves.
Divide and conquer within the movement is very real.
