Black Lives Matter of Chicago: Looting is a slavery reparations payment! What? According to Fox News reporting, Black Lives Matter members in Chicago held a rally on Monday to support the more than 100 arrested last night following widespread looting and rioting that caused at least $60 million in property damage and saw 13 police officers injured, according to a report.
The rally was organized by Black Lives Matter Chicago and was held at a police station in the South Loop where organizers say individuals are currently being held in custody. At least one organizer called the looting tantamount to “reparations.”
This is the problem with #BlackLivesMatter without leadership. Somebody tell them not to step on the work of a real political movement in #ados with this dangerous nonsense. “Black Lives Matter Chicago said early Monday's looting of stores was a form of 'reparations'” pic.twitter.com/J4WhycTaQj

“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,” said Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, according to NBC Chicago. “That makes sure that person has clothes.”
Remarkably, the looting and rioting itself was based on a false statement by BLM that a 15 year old unarmed black teenager had been shot by the Chicago police, much like the false information that lead to looting and riots after known felon Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer after he had committed crimes in a store and by assaulting the officer.
I will say it again, Black Lives Matter is a Marxist terrorist organization just like ANTIFA, and we as a society must stop conflating our goal and a society based on equality for all, with supporting these crazy people that continue to burn down our society on behalf of George Floyd’s unfortunate death while in police custody.
The reparations that really need to be paid are to all the small business owners and the families of retired police Officer David Dorn, and those should be paid for by the big media corporations, the Hollywood donors, and political activist donors who are enabling this violence against the American people.
These entities have taken a united people who agree on continuing to work to our country’s ideal that all are created equal the day after Floyd’s death, to one that could well be facing a violent conflagration among its people. They should be investigated, identified, and held accountable alongside the BLM and ANTIFA terrorists they’ve enabled.
