SCLC President Urges Black Families To Get Ready For War: ‘Nonviolence Hasn’t Worked!’

samuel-mosteller tells blacks to arm selves


“You know, the SCLC stands for nonviolence,” said Rev. Mosteller, “but nonviolence hasn’t worked in this instance.”

“Nobody is protecting the Black community! I am going to have to advocate, at this point, that all African-Americans advocate their 2nd Amendment rights,” Rev. Mosteller said.

Mosteller’s angry request comes only a week after 23-year-old Nicholas Thomas was brutally shot to death by Smyrna police, who claimed the victim tried to run them over in his Maserati after they attempted to serve him an arrest warrant for his probation violation.

But not everyone agrees with Mosteller’s violent tactics. Janice Mathis, a lawyer with Rainbow PUSH Coalition said, “Arming the Black community is not Rainbow PUSH’s position.” The SCLC has been historically known for their lack of violence. In fact, if you can remember from Ava DuVernay’s Selma, members of the SCLC were criticized by younger members, who wanted to continue the civil rights movement with more force. Mosteller’s would-be tactics are a departure from the usual for the SCLC, but it’s not like his feelings aren’t warranted.

Watching the amount of Black death increase at rates we can’t keep up with hurts. We can protest and scream #BlackLivesMatter until we’re blue in the face, but until the world adopts humanity, we’re going to keep having to watch these deaths in horror.

According to reports, Mosteller also announced plans to organize recalls of the sheriffs of any county where an unarmed African-American is shot by police. These are the types of plans that should be implemented to help effect change in our world. If our ancestors have been able to do it, why can’t we?

Do you agree with Mosteller’s views? Should Black families get ready for war?


To give the reader some context of where the article appeared, the website is “the premier online destination for today’s woman of color” according to their “About” statement.

After reading the article, I proceeded to read well over half of the comments (there were 480). If you want to see what a segment of the black community thinks about our racial divide, I suggest that you go there and read the comments. I estimate that at least a quarter of them are of the opinion that they (blacks) are under siege and police are murdering black men (especially youths) every day and all over the country – a war some call it. Little mention is made of black-on-black killings and little is said about how the police shootings might have been avoided by obeying police commands and not becoming belligerent. While we’ve had a few high-visibility police shootings, they seem to have multiplied into “open season” on blacks by police according to a number of commenters. And many making comments were no better than Sharpton and other race-baiters who do nothing but inflame already sensitive racial tensions. There were a few white commenters who were trying to educate the more militant participants about why their rhetoric would cause more harm than good, but they were verbally assaulted over and over and told to go away.

I honestly hope that what I saw was only a small minority of blacks who think that way. I don’t want to see a race war and regardless of their bravado on a website, they’ll rue the day that they started one. It’s a shame that Barack Obama is too full of himself to see what he has birthed, a country verging on a race war – and much of it is his fault.

    Not only is it O’s fault, he brought it on intentionally to further divide this country. He and Holder used Sharpton to stir up the rage, and now this preacher is on board. There’s likely more to come that we haven’t heard from yet.

    I don’t think it’s happening any more frequently that it ever did, instead it’s making headlines more often than it was. The Ferguson ordeal was the catalyst. Funny how it never makes the news when it’s a black cop shooting a white guy.

    • Garnet92 says:

      I don’t like this undercurrent of hostility in at least some blacks. As I read the comments, there were a lot of them who described whites as afraid and scared of what a black uprising could mean.

      Yes, I’m scared – but not of the black extremists who are doing the rabble-rousing, I’m afraid of what will happen to the country if we return to a KKK mentality — and a real race war is what will happen if we start seeing a lot of blacks shooting whites. I WILL NOT be intimidated by a loud voice threatening me or my family. This whitey won’t turn the other cheek, I’ll shoot back.

      • vonMesser says:

        That’s what I’m really afraid of. There will be an uprising, and I’ll have to shoot to kill; or die myself (and my choice is to live). In this wise, with the ratio of blacks to whites, we might end up with no blacks left in the country – much as there were pretty much no Jews or 7 Day Adventists left in Germany after the Hitlerites got through.

  2. CW says:

    This is eye-opening, Garnet.

    What’s most disturbing is the disappearance of reason and rationality within the black community. It could be understandable that this latest killing might prompt talk of a race war IF it weren’t for the fact that the cop who killed this man has been arrested and charged with murder. Why are they calling for a war when the wheels of justice are turning as they should be? Such unreasonableness and irrationality are the consequence of the leftists in charge who have given blacks permission to react unreasonably and who reward irrationality in the black community by bowing to their unreasonable demands. As is usually the case, the leftists don’t understand that the monsters they’ve unleashed will not spare them when they convert their unreasonableness and irrationality into violence. This is, as you and Kathy stated, on the heads of Barack Obama & Co. I hope they are proud of themselves.

    • Garnet92 says:

      Those people who were making the most vicious comments weren’t reasonable or logical. They are being whipped into a frenzy and it’s likely that some will snap and start shooting. A couple more Fergusons and things could get nasty.

  3. vonMesser says:

    OK, you blacks. You want to change the culture? Really?
    Here’s a couple of suggestions:
    1. Get blacks involved in law enforcement. You’re 13% of the population, but less than 3% of the cops.
    2. Tell your kids to stop smart-mouthing the cops (and all adults, for that matter)
    3. Get the people who live in the hood to call the cops when laws are broken rather than just hide under the bed and hope it’ll go away.
    4. Get your community “leaders” (the parson, the doctor, the attorney, etc) to do ride-alongs with the cops so they can really see what’s going down, and what the cops are faced with.
    5. Start hanging out with Republicans. See which political party is REALLY on your side.

    If you’re not willing to do that, you’re just funnin’ yourself. Or you are being a liar. One of the two.

    • I.R. Wayright says:

      May I add, “And whie you’re at it, pull up your damned pants.”

    • Garnet92 says:

      That all makes too much sense VM and those followers of Sharpton, et al, don’t want to hear it. Their minds are already made up. And, as far as your last statement, those making the most noise are doing both, funnin’ themselves and lying.

    Well planned Marshall law – the DICKtater stays in power

  5. Hardnox says:

    This is a disturbing trend these days as supposed black leaders are falling over themselves to gain some relevance. Of course much of this is contrived. We all know the root problem is black culture and the attitudes they have towards each other.

    I fully expect the volume level to rise as the weather gets warmer. The left is afraid that power will slip away. It’s much better for them to create a narrative which claims that more blacks will get killed if republicans are in power.

    We can expect King Putt to throw more fuel on the fire.
