Beyonce turns Super Bowl halftime into Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, Malcom X rallying cry

Pop star Beyoncé turned one of America’s greatest annual sporting events into a political propaganda statement with a halftime show honoring the controversial Black Lives Matter movement.

As she belted out her new song “Formation,” a celebrated anthem for black pride, dancers performed in wardrobe similar to members of the Black Panthers.

The dancers formed the letter “X” at one point and brought their arms in the air with clenched fists in a black power salute, leaving many to speculate a likely reference to the militant black civil rights leader Malcom X.

Mic.com senior staff writer Jamilah King tweeted:

Here’s Entertainment Tonight’s report of Beyonce’s show:

The show is being celebrated by Black Lives Matters and “pro-black power” voices, including Michelle Obama, who gave a pre-game interview telling Beyonce she had her full support and would even dress for the event. 

Take a look at some of the pictures of the performance from social media.

    All those fat thighs made me think it was tribute to Kentucky Fried Chicken.

    If they really cared about Black Lives they would leave the police alone and try an find a solution to the Black kids killing each other in Chicago. Shooting are up 75% so far this year.

    This only shows pure ignorance and prejudice from a person who has a gift of signing. Nothing more. Similar to a person who is fast and strong throwing and catching and blocking to play with a football. Both of these gifts are now the big entertainment draw in America. We are reaping what we have sown. Nothing more. And it is NOT FRUITFUL in the KINGDOM of GOD. It is wood, hay and stubble that will be burned up on judgment day.
    This is all about insecure people wanting to be worshiped and the Devil is loving all this hate. The battle is not against flesh and blood but against the Devil’s chain of command folks. Repent and receive Jesus Christ as LORD.
