Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome joined "The Story" Wednesday to discuss the direction of the movement...

"You ... have said that violence is sometimes necessary in these situations," host Martha MacCallum told Newsome. "What exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence?"...

"I said," Newsome told the host, "if this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking ... figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It's a matter of interpretation...

At the conclusion of the interview, Newsome told MacCallum, "I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary."

At the conclusion of the interview, Newsome told MacCallum, “I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary.”

So what makes him any different than a white supremacist advocating for White Sovereignty? Is anyone thinking critically today?!

He wants separation (they’ve always wanted it) between the races but blacks can’t survive without the help of White taxpayers. Abe Lincoln planned to send them to Liberia and Senegal. Let’s implement his original plan.

Black sovereignty? Does that mean a return of Jim Crowe and segregation? Paging George Wallace.

I have always thought re-segregation was the way to go.

No one at all on the Left, from what I see.

I watched that interview last night. Do you even realize how stupid that statement was when spoken? Whoever interviews this fool needs to follow up on his "it's a matter of interpretation." The "I could be speaking literally." Should have been followed up with, 'Are you speaking literally?' ... It was HIS words that were spoken! He definitely could have clarified his own words and what he meant! We know the Marxists are totally trying to destroy the country.

What he's saying is "we will not stop burning and looting until you make us happy".

I think an increasing number of people are thinking "They will NEVER be happy, so our families and property will never be safe until every single one of them is dead".

Much like NOW their goal IS to ‘burn down the system’ and usher in Marxism.

Isn’t that what the left would call a dog whistle to radical militant extremists?

It shouldn’t be ‘a matter of interpretation’.

That would be MIS- interpretation.

What was his intent in that incendiary statement?
