Black Lives Matter holds 'Black Xmas' to 'divest from white capitalism'
Need to ‚Äúdivest from white capitalism‚ÄĚ this Christmas? Neither did I, but I‚Äôm not a member of Black Lives Matter. In fact, I‚Äôd almost forgotten the loose constellation of social justice groups still existed.
They‚Äôre still around, though, and they‚Äôre having a Black Christmas. Not just Black Friday, mind you; that‚Äôs already been taken. Instead, for the sixth year in a row, they‚Äôre asking for "no Spending with White corporations" between Nov. 29 through New Year‚Äôs Day.

There are comments from John MacArthur about this movement in the article.
I thought the ethnic minorities wanted equality with their indigenous neighbours.
What happened to all this integration the PC Liberalists were 'preaching'???
Luke 6:32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. 36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful."
They obviously have not fulfilled their mission since more blacks are killing each other. A recent study showed that for states with high black population, gun violence rates were very high, as if to say, here, stats show you that blacks and guns don't make a good mix. Here's a recent headline that exemplifies this: Training to be a Violence Interrupter in Majority Black Washington D.C., Clarence Venable (Black Male) Shot to Death by Black Male as He Left Training Class
