The official website of Black Lives Matter (BLM) has dropped its controversial call to “disrupt” 的 “nuclear family structure.”
RedState 已报告 on Monday that the organization “quietly deleted” 它的 “What We Believe” 页, which laid out a list of its objectives.
One of those objectives, which many critics of BLM highlighted, 读: “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, 父母, and children are comfortable.”
Fox News verified that the “What We Believe” page was inactive. BLM did not immediately respond to Fox News’ 征求意见.
BLM has seen a sharp drop in its favorability rating in recent weeks amid ongoing riots and violence in cities across the country. One survey conducted by the Pew Research Center showed that just over half of American adults (55%) support BLM, down from a high of 67% 在六月. The percentage of people who say they “strongly” support the movement stands at around 29%, a nearly 10% decrease from three months ago.
The movement enjoyed broad support following the death of 乔治·弗洛伊德 在 Minneapolis police custody May 25. Floyd’s death sparked nationwide protests that quickly descended into riots, destruction of property and violent confrontations with police.
The Pew survey found that around 16% of Republicans currently view BLM favorably, 相比 37% 在六月. The organization has the support of 88% of Democrats, down slightly from 92% support in June.
