     OP - June 29, 2020, 05:55 PM

    Good evening all, it has been a while  Smiley

    This question is especially for black ex-Muslims but have you noticed the anti-blackness on display from several non-black ex-Muslims this year. Maryam and some of the others have been  great and supportive. But there are other ex-Muslim figures who have been quite the opposite. I have seen one who claimed that most black people are perpetual victims and endorsed anti-black extremists who happen to have the same skin colour as us like Candace Owens.

    It really disgusts me and makes me distance myself from the ex-Muslim movement.

    Hi welcome back.

    I’m not sure it’s for me to answer and it’s not something I’ve paid attention to - but it doesn’t surprise me at all. It just seems consistent with the political trajectory of quite a few vocal ex-Muslims.

    victimhood and martyrdom - isn't that the entire basis of the blm movement/cult?

    ^^One could easily say that the entire basis of the Ex-Muslim movement (which could be called a "cult" as well) is victimhood and martyrdom.

    Thanks zeca Smiley

    I have been to a couple of Ex-Muslim gatherings over the past couple of years and I have normally heard this narrative from people I met at these events (who I am now keeping a distance from) and from Ex-Muslim Twitter. Many also come from notoriously anti-black cultures so I guess that mindset doesn't change after they leave Islam.

    ... but there is an alternative to throwing your lot in with a race cult or lefty apostates.

    it's as simple as accepting that identity is a fiction. why define yourself according to some broken idea - or even the repudiation of an idea - when you can just be yourself?

    see my other thread about lazy alternatives to apostasy. with regard to this thread, those who subscribe to racial and ir/religious identities will remain as slaves in whichever country they reside.

    fun article:

    Quote from:
    It’s the Fourth of July, and revolution is in the air. Only in America would it look like this: an elite-sponsored Maoist revolt, couched as a Black liberation movement whose canonical texts are a corporate consultant’s white guilt self-help manual, and a New York Times series rewriting history to explain an election they called wrong.

    Here’s an edited transcript of the interview: https://maryamnamazie.com/black-lives-matter-full-stop/
    Quote
    Maryam Namazie: Thank you, Ali, for organising this hugely important discussion. Let me preface by saying that some ex-Muslims have been concerned about disagreements within our “community” and the polarization over BLM but the reality is that we’re not a homogeneous community any more than any other so-called community – whether it be Muslim, LGBT, black, white… Also, differences are not a “betrayal” of some imagined collective “identity” but as a result of our individual politics and choices. I have seen these differences often, when for example, I have defended open borders and refugee rights or condemned Brexit. Similarly, discussion on BLM, systematic racism and police brutality are uncomfortable because of fundamental differences in politics but that is why we need to have them. It has to be added that discomfort is not the same as “bullying,” Also, vehement disagreements are not the same as being silenced.

    As someone firmly on the Left, for me, BLM is an important movement that has brought the issue of systematic racism in policing into the mainstream narrative. It’s inspiring to see and I feel very much like we are witnessing a new phase of an unfinished civil rights movement. As an activist, I believe that it is in the streets that the status quo can be challenged and this is what BLM is doing. The fact that we have seen protests in other countries shows how much institutional racism is part of the experience of black and minority women and men in countries outside the US too. That doesn’t mean I don’t have criticisms of aspects of BLM as I do of the ex-Muslim movement, for example, but I understand its importance and relevance (beyond a limited organisational scope), particularly during a Trump presidency that relies on white supremacy and identity politics.


    haven't watched this yet but I suspect I'll disagree.


    So did you disagree with it?

    That is what Islam did   for some folks in the history of Islam... and Islam still has place... right Islam has the power to change the people.. Ex-Muslims must  keep that in mind when they attack Islam IN ITS TOTALITY.. off course times are different now.. but people must have freedom  to choose Islam or for that matter any faith they like......

    sounds very balanced but...

    Quote from:
    No movement can win in isolation. You can’t win women’s rights if men are not involved in the fight for liberation. You can’t win rights for ex-Muslim if Muslims are not fighting in your corner. Black Lives Matter has become a mass movement. We need to both support them but also show them how our movements are linked, how our lives are linked, how our rights are linked


    the universal rights and solidarity stuff is not my cup of tea. seekomg support from misogynists, racists, takfiris, etc is crazy. blindly supporting every crackpot demand for rights is even crazier.

    do they live in AMRIKA  .. or is it  just armchair  discussion far away from the real problems in AMRIKA??  But I agree that Police reforms in US of A using that brute force for every silly thing is indeed necessary ..  And best example from AMRIKA POLICE need reforms badly  is a foolish police  guy shooting ground hog on the road in public..

    BLM in AMRIKA appears to have gone from protests for reforms to shooting Police officers that are sitting in cop car ..
