To put it simply, Black Lives Matter is not “dreaming of a white Christmas” this year.
In a campaign that promotes self-segregation and racial division, BLM activists have asked their comrades to “boycott white capitalism” this Christmas, meaning “no spending with White corporations” from Black Friday all the way to New Year’s.
The hashtags for the anti-“white capitalism” campaign include #BuyBlack, #BlackXmas and #BuildBlackCommunity.
“Instead of buying, consider donating to Black organizations in the names of loved ones as their holiday gifts. If you must buy, #BuyBlack,” suggests the BLM site before going on to provide lists of black businesses.
People are also welcome to download an “official” Black Wall Street app for “real-time Black-business mapped locations and MyClickUrban for #BlackXmas updates and Black events in your area.”
According to the #BlackXmas website, the stated goals of black people only shopping at black businesses (where have I seen that before?) is to both “#DIVEST from White corporations” and “#INVEST in Black community.”
Part of the anti-white shopping spree is in protest of President Trump.
“Donald Trump embodies White capitalism,” the site exclaims. “If you are anti-Trump, you should hold back your resources from him and the like. BUILD NEW TRADITIONS: Donate to Black-led community-based organizations in the name of your loved ones as holiday gifts.”
Melina Abdullah, a BLM leader and professor at California State University, Los Angeles (CSU-LA), says “white capitalism” perpetuates a system of oppression against black people.
“We say ‘white capitalism’ because it’s important that we understand that the economic system and the racial structures are connected,” said Abdullah on her weekly radio show. “We have to not only disrupt the systems of policing that literally kill our people, but we have to disrupt the white supremacist, capitalistic, patriarchal, heteronormative system that is really the root cause of these police killings.”
Anthony Ratcliff, another BLM leader and CSU-LA professor, said the fight against capitalism is every bit as important as the fight against transphobia or homophobia.
“Black Lives Matter and other organizations build a strong critique and understanding of racism and white supremacy and sexism and homophobia, transphobia, but we have to have as much hatred or vitriol against capitalism,” said Ratcliff. “Until we start to see capitalism [is] just as nefarious as white supremacy, we will always be struggling.”
This definitely tops the list for the “Top 10 ‘War on Christmas’ Fails Of All Time.”
