The Black Lives Matter organization deleted its “What We Believe” section. It has come under criticism since it was filled with Marxist language, including the wish to destroy the “nuclear family.”

You can still view it via Wayback Machine:

We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.

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, parents, and children are comfortable.

Can someone point me where it is written that mothers have to work “double shifts” and the family has to be a patriarchy?

The language under this section went into specifics. the “About” section has stated goals, but not in-depth language.

The right has long criticized the BLM website for its Marxist language. It did not help that co-founder Patrisse Cullors “identified herself and fellow co-founders of the organization as ‘trained Marxists.'”

BLM started in 2013 after a jury acquitted George Zimmerman. It gained steamed again after George Floyd’s death in late May.

But it did not last long since the BLM support has gone down by 12% in the last three months:

The recent decline in support for the Black Lives Matter movement is particularly notable among White and Hispanic adults. In June, a majority of White adults (60%) said they supported the movement at least somewhat; now, fewer than half (45%) express at least some support. The share of Hispanic adults who support the movement has decreased 11 percentage points, from 77% in June to 66% today. By comparison, support for the Black Lives Matter movement has remained virtually unchanged among Black and Asian adults.
