Black Lives Matter pushes 'Black Xmas'

Black Lives Matter pushes 'Black Xmas,' seeks 'to disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism and build black community'

Black Lives Matter is calling for people to shop only at black-owned businesses during the holiday season.

"We’re dreaming of a #Blackxmas. That means no spending with white companies from 11/26/2021 – 01/01/2022," blackxmas.org states.

"Beginning in 2014, in response to John Crawford’s murder by police in Beavercreek, Ohio, Black Lives Matter has been challenging people to 'dream of a #BlackXmas,' to intentionally use our economic resources to disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism and build Black community," Black Lives Matter noted in a post on its website about the campaign.

"As BLMLA organizer, Jan Williams, reminds us, 'Capitalism doesn’t love Black people.' In fact, white-supremacist-capitalism invented policing, initially as chattel-slavery-era 'paddy rollers,' in order to protect its interests and put targets on the backs of Black people," the post said.



Black Lives Matter is also calling for people to do their banking with black-owned banks and to give money to organizations that serve and are headed by black individuals.

Don't miss out on content from Dave Rubin free of big tech censorship. Listen to The Rubin Report now.
"Move your money from white corporate banks (that finance gentrification, prisons, and environmental degradation) to Black-owned ones," the group said. "Invest in Black-led, Black-serving organizations by making donations in the names of your loved ones as holiday gifts."

"Let’s harness our economic power to disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism and build Black community. #BlackXmas is about being self-determined and dismantling existing structures by building new, and more viable, beneficial ones[ … ]in the names of our mightiest and most righteous warrior Ancestors, in the names of all those stolen by police violence, in honor of our community, and as a commitment to the generations to come," Black Lives Matter declared.


Last week as Americans feasted on Thanksgiving, Black Lives Matter declared that people were having their meals "on stolen land."

"Colonization never ended, it just became normalized," a graphic shared by the organization said. "Find out which ancestral homeland you're currently occupying here: native-land.ca."

This is what is called a “target rich environment” for jokes.

So white stores will now be safer during the holiday season?

This is cultural appropriation. Santa is from Europe.

Didn't they burn down most black businesses during the BLM riots?

So they thought they were being coy by removing "Christ" from Christmas but they likely don't know the "X" refers to Christ. What a bunch of losers!

This is all just a faux outrage way to raise money. Good luck getting people to not spend money at "white" businesses. Capitalism is GREEN. It's not black or white. This is just a bull shite plea to raise money and make somebody rich.

I love businesses that let you know they are black owned. Since this mess started and they forced me to pick a side based on race/self interest and I’m white..I won’t spend a dime at a black owned business. I won’t give charity to any charity that helps blacks. I didn’t want to be this way, but since we are all gonna divide up along racial lines..I’ll stick with “my own”.

They're now willing to promote the segregation that was supposed to be the problem in the sixties and seventies.

They should take the "Last Christmas" song from WHAM and relabel as "Black Christmas" subbing in black for every time he sings last.

Hard to find white supremacism out there no matter how much you try but there sure is a lot of supremacism by other races.

Honestly... I normally go out of my way to avoid black owned businesses that are widely promoted just because they are black owned.

Because I don't want skintone to be a determining factor in which restaurant I eat at.

I actually heard that song in my head before reading your post.

We can travel down that road if they want to. However, no turning back.
