The BLM’s radical Christmas wish list
NEWYou are now ready to listen to Fox News articles!
The political and social divisions in the United States are the worst in decades. However, despite our differences, Christmas continues to serve as a great unity and reminder of the power of kindness and the importance of family.
Every Christmas tens of millions of American households gather to celebrate the holiday season, share memories and meals, and – in the case of Christian families – attend services that bring their attention to the deeper meanings of the holiday season.
BLACK LIVES MATTER CALLS A MONTHLY BOYCOTT FROM âWHITE COMPANIESâ
Unfortunately, however, not everyone sees the benefits of Christmas. Black Lives Matter (BLM), one of the most influential activist organizations in the country, wants to radically change Christmas as part of their larger war “to disrupt white capitalism”.
In an article on the need to change Christmas on the Black Lives Matters website, the organization wrote: âBlack Friday sales will be launched weeks before Thanksgiving, and white supremacy capitalism is urging us to spend every step of the way our money for things that we don’t need to make a profit for corporations. “
To fuel their war this Christmas, BLM has launched a socialist, racist “Black Xmas” campaign, including urging all people to only buy goods from black-owned companies and avoid buying goods from white, Hispanic and Asian companies. own company.

The BLM also urges consumers to give up âwhite corporate banksâ because they âfinance gentrification, prisons and environmental degradationâ. Instead, the BLM believes that Americans should invest their money only in financial institutions owned by “blacks”.
The purpose of the BLM’s “Black Xmas” campaign is no secret: to end America’s market-based economy in favor of Marxism.
“#BlackXmas challenges us to shake off the chains of consumerism and step into our own collective power fully, building new traditions and doing both an offensive and a defense,” wrote BLM. “Let us use our economic power to disrupt white dominant capitalism and build a black community.”
It goes without saying that the BLM’s attack on Christmas is extremely radical and completely contradicts the views of the overwhelming majority of Americans. It also provides further evidence that, despite countless claims to the contrary by members of the mainstream media, Hollywood, and academia, the BLM is not really interested in racial equality or peace.
BLM CORPORATE LEADERS SILENT ABOUT CALLING THE GROUP TO BOYCOTT “WHITE COMPANIES”
BLM’s âBlack Xmasâ campaign is the definition of racism – what else would you call demanding consumers? only from one race? – and motivated exclusively by the desire to dismantle important social structures in favor of a Marxist quasi-revolution that has its roots in mythologies that depict capitalism as the root of all evil.
For example, Melina Abdullah, who wrote for the Los Angeles Sentinel, BLM activist and Cal State at Los Angeles, claimed that Black Xmas is driven by a desire to bring about dramatic economic and social change.
“This call is essentially tied to Black Lives Matter’s mission to end government-sanctioned violence against blacks,” wrote Abdullah. “We know that state-sanctioned violence is rooted in white domination capitalism,” which Abdullah claims “exploits black people as workers and consumers and relies on the police state to secure and maintain its dominance”.

Of course none of this is true. America’s market-based economy has lifted more people out of poverty over the last century, and, like all populations in the United States, the living conditions of African Americans have improved dramatically over the past few decades.
Fueled by the growth-promoting policies of the Trump administration and Republican-led Congress, the US Census Bureau reported in 2020 that the poverty rate for blacks and Hispanics “hit all-time lows” in 2019. The black poverty rate fell to 18.8%. the lowest number since 1959, when the Office first issued poverty estimates.
This does not mean that Americans should stop fighting against racism and poverty – also for African Americans and all other groups. Much remains to be done, especially given the economic damage caused by government lockdowns to contain the spread of COVID-19.
But the idea that free market politics somehow makes African Americans suffer is not true. It is an invention of the imagination of Marxist groups like the BLM.

The organization Black Lives Matter, which is extremely financially strong by the political and social institutions of the left and supported by the political and social institutions, has repeatedly proven itself to be extremist in its economic and social views. BLM does far more harm than good to those who are genuinely trying to address racial differences, tackle poverty and make sensible reforms to the police force.
America needs to have these important talks and political debates, but it will never be productive when a radical socialist group like the BLM takes the lead. It is long time left political and social figures condemn the Black Lives Matter organization and re-examine how we can help improve the lives of all people in the United States.
Until then, completely unpopular socialist ideas will prevent further progress.
