A black lives matter leader made a request of us privileged whities! The list is so absurd you would think its from the onion. If your white then you should be ashamed of yourself while reading this \s



This was said in response to Charleston



Some things I’m thinking about that should change (in that Southern, black grandmama voice):

1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.

2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.

3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.

4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

7. 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.

8. Backing up No. 7, 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.

9. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, 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.

10. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.

Chanelle Helm is cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville.

So, basically, give them my money, and give them anything I have when I pass away? Lol, leeches.

Yes, this is absurd, but you REALLY need to link your source. Get into the habit of it, and maybe people will take you seriously.

Sounds like something that obviously reads not entirely seriously, but has two fundamental messages: Personally do something to help blacks in poverty and don't be complicit in racism.

I don't really agree with many of the specifics, but it's certainly nothing for me to get a rise over.

His source is a far-right nationalist website.

Just out of curiosity, rather than flooding an anime message board with your race-baiting cut and paste, have you ever considered starting your own blog?

I'd say that first one is really the only reasonable one, although there's more than a couple big ifs involved and shouldn't just apply to blacks and browns.

EDIT: Or just well off whites, but everyone.

Thought I did, updated. People already do. The people who don't don't care about the sourcing.

I got a laugh out of it. It read like an onion story.

Translation: "I don't like what he posted so I'll attack him by saying he took it from a far-right nationalist website"

I'm not the one race baiting. I'm bashing a corrupted ideology that has plagued America and encouraged race baiting for 150 years.

You have an agenda to spread filtered race-baiting and/or right-wing posts. Many of which are either falsehoods or peppered with half truths and half falsehoods.

I'm not here to debate you, or convince you of anything. That boat sailed decades ago in your case.

Rather I'm posting so that people who stumble on agenda-driven posts understand there literally is no point to threads like this aside from the thread poster laying seeds of hate and division. As if we don't have enough of that in this country.

This is absolute madness.
