Black Lives Matter is calling for a racist boycott of “white capitalism” this Christmas, saying on its website this means spending no money with any white-owned business.
According to the Black Lives Matter website:
This season we are calling for a boycott of White capitalism and #BuildBlackCommunity. This means no spending with White corporations 11/24/2017-1/1/2018! They are encouraging everyone to #CurbYourConsumerism for the holidays. Instead of buying, consider donating to Black organizations in the names of loved ones as their holiday gifts. If you must buy, #BuyBlack.

“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,” Anthony Ratcliff, a professor at California State University, Los Angeles, and a Black Lives Matter (BLM) leader, said during a radio interview the purpose of “black Christmas,” Newsweek reported.
“Until we start to see capitalism [is] just as nefarious as white supremacy, we will always be struggling,” he added.
Melina Abdullah, a BLM leader who is a professor at California State University, Los Angeles, went even further.
“We say ‘white capitalism’ because it’s important that we understand that the economic system and the racial structures are connected,” Abdullah said on her radio show, Beautiful Struggle, where Ratcliff appeared as a guest.
“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,” Abdullah added.
Translation: What we have known as a normal society for thousands of years must be destroyed to fit what the modern left wants.
Of course, that includes doing away with capitalism, no doubt replacing it with Communism.
The campaign also calls on blacks to “#DIVEST from White corporations.”
“Donald Trump embodies White capitalism,” the BLM website states. “If you are anti-Trump, you should hold back your resources from him and the like.”
The BLM website links to another website, blackxmas.org, which includes a list of black organizations that should be supported financially.
