Black Lives Matter mourns, defends Castro

The Black Lives Matter group mourned and defended former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, and said it felt an "overwhelming sense of loss" after the death of the communist dictator on Friday.

"Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante," the group wrote in an unsigned editorial published Sunday titled, "Lessons from Fidel: Black Lives Matter and the Transition of El Comandante."

The group praised Castro's "revolution," and said humans deserve certain rights based on being born, including: "healthy food, clean water, decent housing, safe communities, quality healthcare, mental health services, free and quality education, community spaces, art, democratic engagement, regular vacations, sports, and places for spiritual expression are not questions of resources, but questions of political will and they are requirements of any humane society."

Through Castro, Black Lives Matter insists there can be lessons of "freedom and the peace."

They want everything to be free, don't want to work for it, and then protest the system that has been giving it to them for the last 40 years. They just don't get it, thanks to the democrats who have been spoiling them all these years with 'progressive' programs that have all failed.

Then why don't they go to Cuba and really see if the people who live there were receiving these things that they "deserved." I think they'll find a different story. They only approve of Castro because he sheltered several black cop killers. Period. Says a lot about them.

I don't think that quarterback enjoyed his recent game in south Miami, lol. I wish the opposing team could have given him a "pile on" like we did as kids.

I hope he enjoyed his first amendment right to say and do what he has done. Now, WE can enjoy the consequences he is receiving for exercising that right.
