Black Lives Matter calls for month-long boycott of ‘white companies’
The Black Lives Matter movement’s national arm is leading a boycott of “white companies” until New Year’s Day, encouraging supporters to help “end white-supremacist-capitalism” by visiting only Black-owned businesses during the holiday shopping season. “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.” 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.”
The boycott, promoted under the hashtag #BlackXmas and #BuyBlack, among others, started on Black Friday and ends on New Year’s Day. We will watch to see if BLM supporter stop using Social Media sites as they all tend to be white owned, airline companies, car companies, mobile phone companies, grocery sores, hospitals and so on, and so on. Welcome to 2021, what a world.
