You know what is sure to get people to take your concerns about police brutality in urban communities seriously? When you protest and block the entrance of white-owned businesses as people are doing their Christmas shopping. As a Christmas shopper the day after Thanksgiving, I’m totally going to listen to what you have to say to me. Tis the season to be aggrieved.
Said no one ever…
Black Lives Matter activists in Chicago plan on blocking white-owned business entrances from consumers on Black Friday. This, in order to push consumers to patronize businesses owned by “people of color and women.”
Black Lives Matter blocked stores parked along Michigan Avenue from consumers “to draw attention to a wide range of issues, including police shootings, racism and economic inequalities that keep Chicago’s South and West sides mired in poverty and violence,” reports Crain’s Chicago Business.
According to Black Lives Matter leader Kimberly Veal, a major function of the protest is to force consumers to forgo shopping at businesses owned by white people, white men in particular, and instead shop at venues owned by “people of color and women.”
Our views of BLM are clear. Just read Deray Says It’s NEVER Ok for Cops to Shoot Someone and Trump Hotel Vandalized with Black Lives Matter Graffiti. But now they’re targeting white people with the intent of harming white people. BLM is openly saying they want to hurt white businesses. Can we start calling them a “hate group”? Because that’s what a hate group does.
It’s also pure racism. BLM is targeting white businesses simply because they’re white. Neat trick to see if something is actually racist: switch the victimizers with the victims. In this case, imagine the outrage if a mob of angry white people blocked black-owned businesses simply because they were black-owned.
Also, at least in this specific story, BLM is protesting in Chicago. A so blue it’s purple, Democrat-run city. Let that sink in as you get educated about BLM’s propaganda driven cause.
