  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

BLM gets Divisive Again

    So BLM pushes a black Christmas to disrupt white supremacist capitalism.

    You know I have NO issues with encouraging people to shop at black owned businesses. I think that's a good thing. If we can help black businesses get if the ground and do well that helps everyone.

    HOWEVER, the way they go about this is nothing but divisive, racist and quite frankly nothing but being a big jerk.

    With things like this:
    As BLMLA organizer, Jan Williams, reminds us, 'Capitalism doesn’t love Black people.' In fact, white-supremacist-capitalism invented policing, initially as chattel-slavery-era 'paddy rollers,' in order to protect its interests and put targets on the backs of Black people," the post said.

    "Let’s harness our economic power to disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism and build Black community. #BlackXmas is about being self-determined and dismantling existing structures by building new, and more viable, beneficial ones[ … ]in the names of our mightiest and most righteous warrior Ancestors, in the names of all those stolen by police violence, in honor of our community, and as a commitment to the generations to come," Black Lives Matter declared.

    Good grief. How about we just say , "Let's all shop at black owned stores to support them. Let's use our shopping power to uplift black owners and make it more viable for businesses to come to our neighborhoods."

    But all this "we are against white people and capitalism cause they just put targets in our backs and we have to call capitalism white supremecy". Is nothing but a divisive message and does nothing to bring people together. It is designed to foster hatred, suspicion and promote disruption of society.

    The name BLM by its very nature is divisive.

    :idea: Why shop at black-owned stores when we can loot high-end "white" stores, flash-mob style...?
    (That is even less expensive.)

    The BLM movement has a demonic foundation. The three founders of the movement said that they could not have got the movement off the ground without their help of their spirit guides. Guess what the spirit guides are? Demons. So, the founding principles and guidelines of the movement were formulated by the demons controlling the founders.

    This has nothing to do with respecting, supporting, and enabling African Americans to succeed in society. It has all to do with disruption, mayhem, and false accusation of white Americans being white supremacists, when they are nothing of the sort. This makes the BLM movement based on lies. The devil is a liar who has set up the BLM movement to steal, kill and destroy the values of our society, make no mistake about it.

    These Black racist anarchists were critical of law enforcement instead of the criminals in their neighborhoods. They are prejudiced against White people. They favor Black supremacy instead of equal rights.

    They wanted to drive police out and now businesses do not want to locate in their neighborhoods because of the theft, burglary, strong armed robbery, murder, drugs, prostitution, etc. They should blame that on Black people.

    The black community boycott of bus segregation in Montgomery led to the Supreme Court ruling segregation on buses unconstitutional. The bus services lost tons of revenue due to the fact blacks used buses more than whites. Financial difficulties is sometimes the only motivation for businesses and people to deliver liberty and justice for ALL. Sad but true.

    I don't understand the problem... black people advocating for support of black-owned businesses is hardly a call to violence. So what exactly is the problem?

    No, because such organizations are obviously targeted specifically to those groups.

    The demonizing of white people. I thought the OP was fairly clear on that point. In order for one group to lift itself up it is not necessary for them to pull another group down.

    This is yet another example of why I believe in "black lives matter", I don't support the BLM movement. I am happy to support good black-owned businesses, white-owned businesses, asian-owned businesses, women-owned businesses, American-owned businesses, etc. but not because of the color of someone's skin or their sex, but because they are creating quality items that I like and I would like them to be able to continue doing it.

    BLM is demonizing white people. Is it any wonder people say all lives matter? White lives matter too.

    No it's not.

    If we say cat's lives matter that doesn't mean that dogs should be offended.
    If we say ONLY cat's lives matter then dogs would be justified in being offended.

    I think that is the whole point of the movement. People say all lives matter. Those are respectable words. Some folks do not demonstrate this feeling with their actions. Actions speak louder and the lack of action led to the BLM movement. Black people have been demonized for centuries with little actions to facilitate them being afforded equal rights. I suspect those who feel whites are being demonized are feeling emotions black folks have felt for generations. The difference being whites have NOT been subjected to the same treatment and limitations of minorities. Their priveleges are intact while they claim they're demonized. Linda Rondstat said it best with her song "Poor, poor pitiful me". Woh..ooh..woe is me!

    Accuse the writers of the Declaration of Independence and every Jim Crow law. That started the hearts and minds of merica being obsessed with race. It trickles down through the generations. My sister was 5 when the Civil rights law was passed. She's not retired yet so a lot of segregation-era racists are still alive, kicking, and running a lot of companies. It trickles down through the people they influence.

    I don't recall any "demonizatin of white people". "White supremacist capitalism" isn't synonymous with "all white people".

    The silly rhetoric they wrapped around it.

    As though American black businesses could flourish without the American system around it.
