This story was originally highlighted a few years back, but it bears repeating , considering what we are seeing play out on cities streets over the past couple of months. It provides a little historical context to what we are witnessing.
Louisville-based Black Lives Matter leader Chanelle Helm, who admits she is not friends with any white people, outlined what she expects white people to do to make race relations in America.
Like all of the ideas coming out of the BLM movement, this too will go into file 13 right next to my work desk.
Now fast forward and pay close attention to the mass looting on the Magnificent Mile of high end stores, which the rioters now say was rightfully theirs and not the businesses’ to begin with or reparations, if you will. You own your own home? Give it to a Black family.
If you own rental property, allow a Black family in and don’t charge them rent. Name a Black person in your will.
I can attest to the fact that I have never owned a single slave in my whole life and no one can claim I did or that I owe reparations for slavery.
Dem0crats don’t owe BLM a thing. After all, they have allowed 93% of Blacks to live on their plantation rent free since the 1960’s.
Helm has produced a list of 10 demands that all involve white people giving Blacks whatever they own. Helm, like most of the BLM leadership is a Marxist.
Marxism is a failed concept every time it is tried. But still,people cling to it’s tenets, claiming that Marxism has never truly been tried. In Marxism you only have two classes of people, the poor and the elite that rule them.
Here are the 10 demands:
1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.
2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.
3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.
4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.
5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.
6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.
7. White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the fuck they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.
8. Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.
9. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.
10. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.
