Black Lives Matter has put out a List of Demands
We demand reparations for past and continuing harms. The government, responsible corporations and other institutions that have profited off of the harm they have inflicted on Black people — from colonialism to slavery through food and housing redlining, mass incarceration, and surveillance — must repair the harm done. This includes:
We demand an end to the war against Black people. Since this country’s inception there have been named and unnamed wars on our communities. We demand an end to the criminalization, incarceration, and killing of our people. This includes:
We demand investments in the education, health and safety of Black people, instead of investments in the criminalizing, caging, and harming of Black people. We want investments in Black communities, determined by Black communities, and divestment from exploitative forces including prisons, fossil fuels, police, surveillance and exploitative corporations. This includes:
We demand economic justice for all and a reconstruction of the economy to ensure Black communities have collective ownership, not merely access. This includes:
We demand a world where those most impacted in our communities control the laws, institutions, and policies that are meant to serve us – from our schools to our local budgets, economies, police departments, and our land – while recognizing that the rights and histories of our Indigenous family must also be respected. This includes:
We demand independent Black political power and Black self-determination in all areas of society. We envision a remaking of the current U.S. political system in order to create a real democracy where Black people and all marginalized people can effectively exercise full political power. This includes:
Each of these demands is followed by a Laundry List. You can go HERE and read each of them. The Bottom Line is they want a Complete Independent Nation of their Own inside the United States where Black People are under their own Laws and Completely Free Education, Housing, and of course Personal U.S. Government Paid Salaries.
Paid for EXCLUSIVELY by White People Taxes.
Also in the mean time in the deadliest month in a Decade, 65 Black People were killed by other Black People in Chicago last month.
Do you know a single one of their Names? Does BLM know their Names?
