Muhiyidin d’Baha, a Black Lives Matter activist from Charleston, SC, who is best known for attacking and attempting to steal a Confederate Battle Flag from Tyler Besseniger of the South Carolina Secessionist Party a year ago has been shot and killed in New Orleans:
“NEW ORLEANS — The man who died at a New Orleans hospital after he was shot on Franklin Avenue Monday night was an activist and organizer of the Black Lives Matter movement in Charleston, S.C.
Muhiyidin d’Baha, better known as Moya or Moye, was found lying on the sidewalk about 9:30 p.m. Monday in the 1700 block of Franklin Avenue with multiple gunshot wounds, the coroner’s office told ABC affiliate WCIV. He died later at a local hospital.
D’Baha is best known for jumping into a crowd and trying to grab a Confederate flag that someone was holding during a heated protest in Charleston in February 2017. …”
As he bled out and died on that New Orleans sidewalk, I can’t help but wonder about his final thoughts. Did he finally realize why black lives don’t matter? As Sacco Vandal said last year in Shelbyville, black lives don’t matter because it is black people who are murdering each other. Aggravating White people by smashing out the windows of businesses and disrupting traffic isn’t going to solve the problem.
