Obama Will Meet With Black Lives Matter Activist DeRay Mckesson

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

President Obama has invited self-proclaimed “full time activist” DeRay Mckesson to the White House as a representative of the Millennial generation of the civil right’s movement.

The Baltimore Sun reports:

DeRay Mckesson, the prominent activist and late entrant into Baltimore’s mayoral race, will meet with President Barack Obama and civil rights leaders at the White House on Thursday for an event honoring Black History Month. Mckesson, a former school administrator and Black Lives Matter protester who co-founded We the Protestors and Campaign Zero, will attend the meeting along with Al Sharpton, Cornell Brooks, president of the NAACP, and Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia.

A White House official described the meeting as a first-of-its-kind gathering of leaders who represent different generations of the civil rights movement, and said the discussion will focus on criminal justice reform and building trust between police and neighborhoods. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch will also attend.

Let’s get one thing straight- DeRay Mckesson is not a civil rights leader. Just like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson before him, DeRay is a race hustler and a professional protester who exploits the struggles of the black community for his own gain.

He is also running for mayor of Baltimore, despite having zero valuable skills for a position of governing.

I can’t help but wonder if this civil rights leadership panel will discuss ways to decrease incidents of racial tension and violence within the protest community, such as the decorated Marine veteran who was pistol whipped and hospitalized in D.C. this week for not “sufficiently” answering the question, “do black lives matter?”

If these civil rights “leaders” really cared about helping the black community, they would not be going into low income neighborhoods and telling people they are victims of oppression, just to drive a wedge between Americans. They wouldn’t be continually sending a message to black children that they are entering this world two steps behind everyone else, as if opportunity and prosperity are not possible to achieve on your own. They wouldn’t be reinforcing the false notion that you need government assistance to survive and thrive.

There is nothing empowering about the progressives who are sitting down to meet with President Obama today. This is nothing but political theater at it’s finest, playing identity politics in an election year.
