BLM calls for month-long 'Black Xmas' boycott of 'white companies'
The anti-white hate group, Black Lives Matter, has announced its seventh year of boycotting 'white companies' during the Christmas season to support 'Black Xmas.'
On Black Friday, the official Black Lives Matter Global Network shared an Instagram post calling to 'support Black-led-Black-serving organizations.'
The official blackxmas.org site states: 'We're dreaming of a #BlackXmas. That means no spending with white companies from Black Friday until New Years Day'.
The group suggest three ways for its supporters to take part in Black Xmas: Build Black, Buy Black, and Bank Black.
The group is encouraging its followers to 'buy exclusively from Black-owned businesses' claiming 'white-supremacist-capitalism uses policing to protect profits and steal Black life.'
Black Xmas begun in 2014 in response to the police shooting of John Crawford, a black man who was shot in an Ohio Walmart whilst swinging an unloaded air rifle and talking on his cellphone.
After failing to comply with police officers' commands to drop the gun and lie on the ground, Crawford tried to flee the advancing officers and was shot.
Following the shooting, a grand jury decided not to indict any of the officers involved on charges of either murder, reckless homicide, or negligent homicide.
A blog post published on the blacklivesmatter.com last week explains: '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.'
The Black Xmas website features list of suggested organizations, companies, and banks to support. While the event has been taking place for several years now, the site only includes maps with recommended shopping for Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, and South Bend, Indiana.
