I’m deeply touched by the courage and passion of the Chicago protesters. As they risk all to stand for freedom, the world must stand with them.

"Also africans: why does no one invest in our hood?"

Black Lives Matter Holds Rally Supporting Individuals Arrested in Chicago Looting Monday

Published August 10, 2020 • Updated on August 10, 2020 at 11:01 pm

Members of Black Lives Matter held a solidarity rally on Monday night with the more than 100 individuals who were arrested after a night of looting and unrest in Chicago.

The rally was held at the South Loop police station where organizers say those individuals are currently being held in custody.

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, said. “That makes sure that person has clothes.”

"That is reparations,” Atkins said. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”

If you are hungry you gotta eat. It is a human right.

Holy fuck. I seriously expected that to be from a satire website. That Trevor Noah social contract argument has really taken off. Which, by the way, was this insanity:
"The only reason you didn’t loot Target before is because you were upholding society’s contract. There is no contract if law and people in power don’t uphold their end of it" (TheLoop; June 1st, 2020; http://www...e-about-george-floyd-protests/ )

I mean... I guess one way to still support BLM despite that is to figure that BLM must be so desperately under-educated that that type of garbage logic makes sense to them. It's so pitiful that it might get people to finally invest in U.S. schools. Then again, if schools teach the 1619 Project, they should probably be defunded ;)
