Diary of a black pro-lifer: Loud activists and quiet sponges

Black students quietly absorb the message.

Black students quietly absorb the message.

There seem to be two groups of black students who come to see our ALL Black Lives Matter (ABLM) signs, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists and the I’m-just-here-to-get-my-education (IJHTGME) students.

The BLM activist students lose their minds, but the IJHTGME students absorb ABLM like parched sponges.

When BLM students see us use their slogans to expose their own hypocrisy, they blow a gasket.  At Purdue University, the BLM students (mostly women) pulled out all the stops, trading in their dignity to become out-of-control, stereotypical caricatures of black women.  There was wild neck rolling, finger wagging, fist shaking, and nearly unintelligible shrieking and cursing.

According to one of the BLM students, only white people could be racist because they had power; black people had no power so they couldn’t be racist, only prejudiced. Armed with their own delusions, they spewed putrid racism for all their peers to see (and cower from).

BLM students are used to behaving like this with anyone and everyone.  They do this because it usually works to get them their way.  But it doesn’t work with us, and before long, they tire out.  The shrill screaming and wild body movements gets exhausting.  They lose their voices.  They get cricks in their necks.

But despite all the theatrics, the giant display is still there, exposing abortion and the damage it does to Black community.

So they disappear, and in their places come the quiet sponges, many of whom readily accept the comparison of abortion with Jim Crow and slavery.  They are shocked to learn about the racist origins of Planned Parenthood and the way PP is suppressing the Black vote.  Not everyone is convinced, but most are willing to listen with open minds, and for that we praise God.

ALL Black Lives Matter at Purdue University

The flier that started it all. It's a true statement, but it lacks undeniable evidence to back it up.

A group of scrappy, industrious pro-life students did their own ALL Black Lives Matter campaign at Purdue.  In February, the Purdue Students for Life (PSFL) posted fliers that focused on abortion in the black community.  Their intentions were in the right place, but their fliers stated opinions instead of facts (though their message was completely truthful).  There was an intense and vicious backlash from radical elements of the student body.  There were even Facebook attacks from a Purdue staff member.

We went to Purdue to convey three messages:

  1. ALL Black Lives Matter, including every preborn child.
  2. Every abortion is a savage act of violence.
  3. Leftist pro-aborts don’t get to decide who may speak, nor what may be said.

Pastor Clenard Childress and his Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN) helped us create a racially diverse team, ready and willing to take on all comers.

The first day was filled with turmoil.  Several BLM activists resorted to hysteric theatrics to make their point, only to make themselves look like ridiculous caricatures.  It was hard for them to play the race card with so many blacks behind the barricades.  On the second day, the BLM activists disappeared, but a small group of LGBTWXYZers protested.  Or maybe they were LGBTTQQFAGPBDSMers — not too sure about that.  Anyway, …

They laid out blankets on the grass and lounged about the whole day.  No chants, no jeers, just lounging.  By the third day, most of the crazies had disappeared.  Except for one angry, loud student, we were visited by a diverse array of inquisitive, thoughtful, and calm students.

The PSFL were amazing.  There were smart, bold, and strong.  They had been knocked down, but instead of cowering in the closet, they regrouped, strategized, and came out swinging for the sake of children — specifically black children.  They worked together as a team and welcomed collaboration.  At CBR, we oppose human cloning, but in the case of PSFL, we might make an exception!
