Will Black Lives Matter be the grinch who stole Christmas?
The radical organization is demanding consumers boycott white companies in the weeks leading up to Christmas, in an attempt to “disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism.”
Fox Business reports:
“White-supremacist-capitalism uses policing to protect profits and steal Black life,” reads an Instagram post by the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. “Skip the Black Friday sales and buy exclusively from Black-owned businesses.”
“We’re dreaming of a #Blackxmas. That means no spending with white companies from 11/26/2021 – 01/01/2022,” the BlackXmas website says.
The organization also calls on supporters to “move your money out of white-corporate banks that finance our oppression and open accounts with Black-owned banks.”
“#BlackXmas challenges us to shake off the chains of consumerism and step fully into our own collective power, to build new traditions, and run an offense as well as a defense,” the post continues. “Let’s harness our economic power to disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism and build Black community.”
