Black Lives Matter claims African-Americans are “systematically and intentionally targeted for demise” by the police and others.  Critics say statistics contradict Black Lives Matter’s assertions, yet the group remains one of the most high-profile social movement organizations of this decade. 

Despite its prominence, little is known about Black Lives Matter (BLM).  Who founded Black Lives Matter, what are its real goals, and who funds it?  In this episode, we take a closer look at these questions and others with forensic criminologist Ron Martinelli.  Dr. Martinelli spent 18 months researching BLM and is the author of the new book The Truth Behind the Black Lives Matter Movement and the War on Police.
