Robert Gehl writes Black Lives Matter has a planfor you.
Actually, it’s more of a plan for your stuff. And it involves giving it to them.
In a bizarre rant in a Louisville weekly paper, the local branch of Black Lives matter had a list of ten demands (“requests,” as they put it) from white people.
Written by self-described “co-founder and core organizer of [BLM] Louisville Chanelle Helm, she opens her list of demands by telling white people that first: if they don’t have any descendants, they need to give all their property to a black family. “Preferably one that lives in generational poverty,” she writes.
And it just goes downhill from there.
Apparently, the cause of – and solution to – America’s racial divide is for white people to give everything they own to black people. Who would have thunk it was so easy?
Here’s another one. For white people who can “afford to downsize,” they should “give up the home you own to a black or brown family.”
And another: “White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.”
But it’s not all about money for BLM. No, they want you to rat out your friends, neighbors and co-workers for being racists. And they have such a pleasant way of making these demands:
White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the fuck they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.
Following up on that request is the next one:
“This should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.”
And the next one – which seems to endorse violence:
“If any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from [Charlottesville], first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.
These folks are pleased as punch too that people are talking about their idiotic list.

The idea of “reparations,” or giving money to the defendants of slaves, is fast becoming part of the Democratic ideology, with leftist lawmakersembracing the idea in increasing numbers.
One Democratic lawmaker regularly introduces a reparations bill in Congress.
The bill is said to be a response to the “fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States.”
Now, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it’s this kind of crap that ensures that we will never get anywhere near real equality and keeps racial divisiveness alive in this country.
This idea rears its ugly head here and there, and it’s just as ignorant every time it does.
While there’s no doubt that slavery was and is a terrible thing, it isn’t unique to black people. I know Leftists and black Americans often think that it is, but they would be wrong.
Slavery has touched the lives of — if not all — a vast majority of people in the world throughout history and still occurs today.
Moreover, not a single black person alive today was ever a slave. It is pathetic and absurd to try and appropriate the experiences of your ancestors as if they were your own and to blame those who never had slaves — and whose ancestors likely may not have had slaves as most white people did not.
