WTF?! Black Lives Matter to Win Global Peace Prize?

We thought nothing was more ridiculous than Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

We were wrong. Very, very wrong.

The Sydney Peace Foundation has reportedly announced that the winner of a global peace prize will be nonother the “activist” group, Black Lives Matter.

According to Newsweek, the prize has previously “highlighted the work of South African civil rights activist Desmond Tutu, renowned philosopher Noam Chomsky and former Irish President Mary Robinson.”

The group will receive the award in a ceremony this November.

The award recognizes the work of the founding leaders of the social justice activist network who began working together after Florida neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 in the shooting death of black teen Trayvon Martin.

The Sydney Peace Foundation had some messed up interesting thoughts on the group. They described Black Lives Matter as “a global phenomenon” that is “affirming black humanity in the face of relentless police brutality, mass incarceration and racial disparity.”

They also said that this will be the first time “that a movement and not a person has been awarded the Peace Prize – a timely choice.”

Oh, and they are accepting the award. Apparently they get to pick and choose what is white supremacy and what isn’t.

Co-founder Opal Tometi said the award “is an affirmation and reminds us that we are on a righteous path.”

A righteous riot path?

“Accepting this award is about our people on the ground striving for justice every single day. It’s truly meaningful to be recognized in this way. We’ll continue to push forward until structural racism is dismantled and every black life matters.”

Let’s just take a look at the “peaceful” group, shall we.

How loving they are to officers…

But people still seem to be confused as to why this peace-loving group is receiving the award:

Well, that’s a lot more confused people than anticipated. We wonder why…
