Welcome to the Become a Threat Movement

BATM embraces being a danger to the status quo:

Leaders. Revolutionaries. Martyrs. Melanin is Liberated here.


Welcome to the Become a Threat Movement.


The Become A Threat movement promotes liberation, passion and social involvement in the community. Minorities are oftentimes seen as threats in the eyes of the system. We’re not seen as individuals who can shape a system, educate young minds and heal those who are in need. We want to change the connotation of the word threat and establish a positive idea of individuals who feel that they aren’t on a level playing field. Of course this is seen through the eyes of blacks and other minorities; however, this is not a movement based on Black, White, Hispanic and Asian—this is a movement based on the positive aspects of what it means to be a threat in the eyes of society.
