(MRC TV) If you think for one microsecond that the war for universally acceptable racial justice will stop at the base of every toppled Confederate statue, you’re either high or a special kind of stupid.
Here’s a good example of why.
In an article published in the Louisville Eccentric Observer (I know, I’d never heard of it, either), Chennelle Helm, a self-proclaimed Black Lives Matter Louisville organizer, is now demanding that white people give up their houses to black people, re-budget their finances so they can financially support black people, will their inheritance to black people, and publicly harass anyone they may suspect is a racist.
Among other things.
Seriously, here’s her list. Because I couldn’t possibly explain this insanity better than she does herself.
1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.
2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.
3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.
4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty…
There’s a reason many Americans have absolutely no interest in removing monuments to Confederate generals and the Founding Fathers, and it has nothing to do with a bunch of gap-toothed rednecks running around with rebel flags screaming that the South will rise again. It’s because most people are smart enough to know that for race-baiting shrews like Helm, it will never be enough.
