Just when you thought you’d seen the craziest of the crazy from the misbegotten, racist movement known as Black Lives Matter, they come out of the woodwork to prove that you haven’t seen anything yet. In an article for Leo Weekly, Chanelle Helm, an activist associated with Black Lives Matter Louisville, gives us “10 requests” that white people should consider fulfilling.
“If you don’t have any descendants,” Helm advises, “will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.”
Of course, if it’s at all possible, you shouldn’t wait for death. Those whites who can “afford to downsize” should immediately give up their homes to black or brown families without delay.
Neither of these fit your bill. That’s okay. Helm has another suggestion: “White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.”
What else can you say but…lol?
Unfortunately, these idiotic ideas aren’t limited to one semi-literate Black Lives Matter activist in Kentucky.
In January, Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson suggested that white people should begin keeping a separate financial account with which they could begin making donations to black groups, if not black individuals.
“Look, if it doesn’t cost you anything, you’re not really engaging in change; you’re engaging in convenience,” Dyson said. “You’re engaged in the overflow. I’m asking you to do stuff you wouldn’t ordinarily do. I’m asking you to think more seriously and strategically about why you possess what you possess. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, ‘woke’ citizen can do.”
We don’t doubt that there is a segment of the white population that responds to this kind of nonsense quite readily. We’re sure there are professors lining the halls at our most prestigious universities who take great pride in talking about how much they pay their black landscapers or how they’ve cut their own children out of their will to make room for a sizeable donation to the NAACP. And we’re sure if those Antifa idiots had jobs, they would do something “woke” with their paychecks.
But to most white people (and, as loathe as these instigators are to admit it, to most black people), this is a non-starter. This is the land of opportunity. And yeah, it’s also a land where some bad stuff happened to black people a long time ago. Okay? Let’s get over it already. Do black Americans really want this kind of mass handout plan? We don’t believe it. Not for a second. Nor do we believe that it would, in the long run, change anything.
