Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter is a continuation of the Black liberation movement. It’s approach is new and improved to the point where it is putting a spotlight on disparities between people in the black community. In the 19th century, the fight was on to free every single black from slavery. In the 20th century, the fight was on to free every single black from mistreatment at the hands of the law and society.
Efforts were made to secure basic rights and laws of equality for blacks, who were now all legally free from slavery. Unfortunately, the plights of females, LGBTQ individuals and people with disabilities took a back seat to the general plight of forwarding the Black race.

Part of this was due to the fact that most of the organizations that advocated for the rights of these groups were dominated by White people who did not want Black people in their organizations. A good example of this is the fact that 20th century women’s groups advocating for women’s issues excluded black women.
A lot of legislation was passed in the 20th century to ensure that Black people are not discriminated against, and that their needs are considered. Now, blacks are fighting to fine tune their own communities; and to fine tune their place in their world by pointing out the biases, microaggressions and violence that they still experience.
Stormfront.org and EURO
Throughout the media, white people are told that they are evil, lame, weak and guilty for the crimes of whites in the past who took part in the African slave trade and committed acts of racism.
A lot of whites find this to be extremely offensive and discriminatory, and it angers a lot of people. Many people in the population, especially people who identify as “White,” feel that the government and the media are trying to undemocratically dismantle their culture by using undemocratic means to force racial integration on whites who don’t want it.
Many whites see this as a double standard, since the government and the media are not openly telling other races and ethnicities of people to be diluted with whites. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Larcey | Crunchbase
Also, there is a view that qualified whites are being discriminated against in Affirmative Action policies, and that less qualified minorities are being chosen over individuals who really are qualified—and happen to be white.
Stormfront.org and EURO are organizations that take on these issues. They provide conferences and safe spaces where whites can fearlessly express their deepest racial concerns.
Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
The plight of immigrants is near and dear to the hearts of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. It has been for many years. They were the founders of a local publication that they named the Phoenix New Times.
The Phoenix New Times talked about racism that was going on against undocumented immigrants and Hispanics. The Frontera Fund covers all plights relating Hispanics and undocumented people.
Some of the plights are specifically Hispanic and/or undocumented immigrant issues, while other plights have to do with issues that generally exist in society as a whole—as well as Hispanic and undocumented immigrant communities.
