The foundation, which is the nonprofit at the head of the Black Lives Matter movement, released a statement on Nov. 24 demanding members and allies of the Black community to not shop at White-owned businesses. The campaign, dubbed "Black Xmas," seeks to "shake off the chains of consumerism and step fully into our own collective power, to build new traditions, and run an offense as well as a defense."
"#BUILDBLACK #BUYBLACK #BANKBLACK We’re dreaming of a #Blackxmas. That means no spending with white companies from 11/26/2021 – 01/01/2022," the group wrote on the campaign's website.
"As BLMLA organizer, Jan Williams, reminds us, ‘Capitalism doesn’t love Black people,’" the post states. "In fact, white-supremacist-capitalism invented policing, initially as chattel-slavery-era ‘paddy rollers,’ in order to protect its interests and put targets on the backs of Black people."
The Nov. 24 message continues, "#BlackXmas challenges us to shake off the chains of consumerism and step fully into our own collective power, to build new traditions, and run an offense as well as a defense. Let’s harness our economic power to disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism and build Black community."
