A co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement has endorsed President Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential race, after declaring "We're not stupid!"
A Fox News report posted in the New York Post reveals it is Mark Fisher, co-founder of the BLM Rhode Island organization, who said Democrats' racist policies are working against the black community.
"It's the duplicity of the Democrats, the hypocrisy. We’re not stupid. The brothers are not stupid. We understand when someone’s for us and when someone is not, and it’s obvious that the Democratic Party is not for us," Fosher said during an interview.
"The policies actually strike at the heart of the black family and the nuclear family."

His most recent comments came during an interview with "Fox & Friends."
He also charged in an appearance on "The Kim Iversen Show" just days earlier that Democrats "don't value" the black vote.
He said it actually is the policies advocated by Trump that uplift the community.
Fisher charged, in that interview, "We’ve been used and abused for so long by that party, they don’t value our vote. Their policies are basically racist policies. I believe it’s a racist party. Donald Trump is just the opposite. He’s going to tell you how it is. He’s going to give it to you straight."
He credited Trump with doing "more for the black community than any president I can think of in my lifetime."
The report described how the comments likely represent the sentiment of a growing percentage of America's black community.
It explained, "A New York Times/Siena College poll this month rang alarm bells for Democrats after it found that Trump had reached an unprecedented level of support from black voters in battleground states that President Biden won in 2020."
That polling showed 22% of black voters in swing states of Nevada, Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are supporting Trump. That figure during the 2020 election was only 8%, revealing a massive shift away from Joe Biden.
Fisher suggested those members of the black community still promoting Democrats probably don't understand exactly how much Trump did for them.
"A lot of people are misinformed. They don’t really understand because they don’t educate themselves on Donald Trump as a person and his history, but if they do that, and it’s going to take … educated leaders to getting the word out there, I think that it’ll happen on its own, and it’ll be organic, because personally, I love the man."
Fisher said he still advocates for the "unity" ideology of BLM>
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.
For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.
Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America's closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young "woke" LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn't think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?
It turns out there's one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.
All of this and much more is completely exposed in November's issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship's Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.
