Northwestern University’s Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy may have stumbled onto a perfect solution.
Turns out, the Black Lives Matter movement may have found its new leader as a result of a survey by the university.
…and it couldn’t be a better fit!
Just over 80 percent of the 815 African-American respondents believes the oft-violent racist movement is effective — 67 percent believing it’s improving race relations.
A large majority of the participants say Black Lives Matter can be even more effective with a centralized leadership structure under one national leader, the survey showed.
And the most popular choice to lead the movement in the eyes of those responding is none other than malcontent former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
The selection of Kaepernick as the best choice to lead BLM wasn’t even close. The radical left-wing athlete received 27 percent of the vote — his closest competitor was “Other.”
Alicia Garza, who is credited with creating Black Lives Matter, along with Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors, only received 10 percent. Hell, the three of them combined STILL came up short by 6 percent.
“Kaepernick’s popularity is not surprising in light of the fact that President Trump’s criticism of the ‘Take A Knee’ protests that he started in the NFL has thrown him into the national spotlight in recent weeks,” wrote Alvin Tillery, associate professor of political science and director of the CSDD at Northwestern.
Here’s a quick sampling of the reaction on Twitter:

Does this prove racism? BLM is a terrorist organization and anyone that is involved with them is a terrorist.

Extremely effective at causing conflict and creating negative backlash.

Wasn’t Kaepernick raised by a white family in Wisconsin & attended a college that was 3% black? I guess makes sense,BLM is a white movement
