The Black Lives Matter movement is demanding reparations and urging businesses in the United States to contribute.
On the first anniversary of its designation as a national holiday, the Black Lives Matter Global Network urged America to “take a step toward reparations. It is critical to our economy, government, and society to demonstrate a genuine dedication to Black freedom this year,” it added.
President Barack Obama signed a bill making Juneteenth, which occurs on June 19, a federal holiday last year.
BLM said that “corporations should pave the way for reparations in the nation.”
“Today, we urge the same companies that quickly rallied behind the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020 to enter into their full financial position and power: Step into your full financial standing and strength. Act on your claims to value Black life by providing holistic reparations for black communities,” BLM urged.
“While we are not opposed to the celebration of Juneteenth, we ARE opposed to corporate America using black pain and black history as a chance to make money without reinvesting back into OUR communities. Stop exploiting our holiday,” BLM urged.
BLM stated that reparations are required because of slavery, but that it is not the only problem.
“We urge businesses in the United States to consider how they may have benefited from slavery and take actions that go beyond simply providing public relations initiatives,” BLM stated. “Immediately, American firms should make their public support for reparations known. We understand that many businesses have benefitted from the legacy and perpetuation of racism among African people.”
Of course the truth is BLM is an anti-white attack group, focused only on pushing the narrative that white people are evil and should be punished for the past. To date, BLM has never demanding reparations from Arabs for their slave trade, which was much larger than anything in the west.
The other motive, beyond simple hatred and desire for revenge against whites, is greed. BLM has already been in the news for their controversial former leader using the group’s funds to buy up three large mansions across the country.
