Ex NFL defensive lineman Marcellus Wiley dropped Black Lives Matter for a significant loss over content on its “What We Believe” page that called for the destruction of the nuclear family.
The former NFL player has been a vocal opponent of the Black Lives Matter takeover in sports, noting that it was going to be a polarizing force. He turned out to be very right.
One thing Marcellus had a problem with, in particular, was Black Lives Matter’s call for the destruction of the nuclear family in favor of more of a communal structure for raising children. During a panel, he had denounced the call for such a thing as he noted being a father and family life was very important to him.
During that panel, he attacked the idea of destroying the nuclear family with prejudice by reading statistics from single-parent households such as the fact that it makes suicide, poverty, drug use, prison time, and lack of education more likely.
Marcellus was naturally attacked for opposing this idea from Black Lives Matter, but now it appears Black Lives Matter doesn’t want to stand by it either suddenly, a fact that didn’t get by the “Speak For Yourself” host.
“Heard too many people tell me that I was wrong for misinterpreting BLM’s mission statement and I took their words out of context,” Wiley tweeted. “You were saying???”

The reason for the deletion is currently unknown, but it’s safe to speculate that this was done because the Marxist idea of communal child-rearing is a step too far away from the nuclear family culture Americans (and likely humanity as a species) prefer. With Black Lives Matter bleeding support, the organization is likely attempting to plug as many holes in its sinking ship as it can.
