Mark Fisher, founder of a Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, is making waves by expressing his support for the January 6 prisoners and boldly declaring that former President Donald Trump is “the best candidate we have.” As a resident of Maryland and founder and executive director of BLM Incorporated, Fisher has been unafraid to stand in solidarity with leaders of controversial groups like the Proud Boys and has even led prayer vigils for what he considers to be political prisoners.

In a recent interview with The Epoch Times, Fisher condemned the treatment of the J6 prisoners, stating, “They’re lambs led to slaughter to be sacrificed as an example for all who might want to dissent in the future. This is what the government does to those who express independent thought and want to stand up for what they believe.” Fisher draws a parallel between the plight of these prisoners and the struggles faced by black people, with the intention of finding common ground.
It’s refreshing to see someone like Fisher challenging the narrative and breaking through the media’s self-created echo chamber. He rightfully points out that while BLM has often been blamed for the riots of 2020, the truth is that far-left extremists like Antifa played a significant role in the chaos. It’s essential to acknowledge these facts and not allow the media to scapegoat BLM for the actions of others.
Fisher also reveals that BLM has existed for years prior to the tragic death of George Floyd. He believes that his organization became a political movement and the center of attention only after the media decided to latch onto it. It’s a harsh reality that the media tends to exploit and divide marginalized groups for its own gain, promoting a narrative that keeps us at each other’s throats rather than fostering unity.
One of the crucial points Fisher makes is about the misconstrued mission of BLM. He clarifies that the organization’s name, “Black Lives Matter,” does not imply that black lives are superior or that they matter more. It simply aims to bring attention to the value and significance of black lives. To ignore the significance of this statement from the perspective of a black person is to lack compassion and empathy.
Fisher goes on to refute the argument that BLM is a Marxist organization, stating that black people want the same things as anyone else—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. He emphasizes the fundamentally American principles of entrepreneurship and capitalism, which align with the desires of the black community. These are values that promote wealth acquisition, family, and the opportunity to leave a legacy for future generations.
In an unexpected twist, Fisher reveals that he is not alone in his support for President Trump within the minority community. More black individuals are expressing their support for Trump, including influential figures like rapper Waka Flocka Flame. Fisher points to instances where black neighborhoods cheered Trump on the way to the county jail, illustrating that awareness of the alleged persecution against the former president is growing within minority communities.
Fisher understands that his support for President Trump may bring criticism from both the white and black communities. However, he remains steadfast in his beliefs, stating, “It’s just something that goes with the territory when you’re a leader. You must be bold. You can’t be afraid to be ridiculed.” Fisher suggests that many members of the black community secretly support Trump and will express their feelings through their vote.
It’s essential to hear diverse perspectives and challenge the prevailing narrative. Mark Fisher’s interview with The Epoch Times provides a valuable insight into the complexities of the Black Lives Matter movement and the growing support for former President Trump within minority communities. It’s time to have open and honest conversations that bridge divides and unite us all as Americans.
