Many people have criticized the Black Lives Matter movement for focusing on police rather than black-on-black inner-city crime. One Black Lives Matter organizer went on CNN and called it a myth… before saying that the movement is trying to stop the crime.

From TheBlaze:

Black Lives Matter organizer Aaron Goggans suggested on CNN on Thursday that black on black crime is a “myth” while moments later acknowledging that the Black Lives Matter movement is trying to resolve black on black crime.

“It’s important to talk about the myth of black on black crime. It’s just that – a myth,” Aaron Goggans, a Black Lives Matter organizer in Washington, D.C., told CNN anchor Carol Costello.

Costello had asked Goggans about a Facebook video in which legendary Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis pleads with fellow African-Americans to “change what we are doing” when it comes to blacks killing blacks.

But when pressed on his statement, Goggans moments later admitted that black on black crime does exist.

“I’m saying that inter community crime happens in all communities across the country and it is a problem that the movement of Black Lives is focusing on,” Goggans said.

Well, which is it? A myth, or something they’re focusing on stopping? And get real here — Black Lives Matter has never focused on black-on-black crime and they likely never will. It doesn’t fit into their anti-cop agenda.
