Is this a new term? Does capitalism come in different colors? Or is this common language in the Afro studies departments at colleges and universities? I could see this being a major part of Critical Race Theory courses. Anything that is part of traditional western civilization must be deemed racist and destroyed. It doesn't matter if its actually helped the group of people that is trying to destroy it.

I wonder if BLM folks have ever visited any communist/socialist countries and found how well black folks do in those countries compared to America?

Black Lives Matter: Boycott White Capitalism This Christmas, ‘Just As Nefarious As White Supremacy’
by Penny Starr14 Dec 201711,231

Black Lives Matter is calling for a boycott of “white capitalism” this Christmas season, stating on its website, “This means no spending with White corporations.”

Anthony Ratcliff, a professor at California State University, Los Angeles, and a Black Lives Matter (BLM) leader, explained during a radio interview the purpose of “black Christmas,” Newsweek reports.

“Black Lives Matter and other organizations build a strong critique and understanding of racism and white supremacy and sexism and homophobia, transphobia, but we have to have as much hatred or vitriol against capitalism,” Ratcliff said.

“Until we start to see capitalism [is] just as nefarious as white supremacy, we will always be struggling,” Ratcliff said.

From Newsweek:

Quote:
Group leaders say it’s time for people to “resist white capitalism” and divest from businesses that contribute to racial inequality. Melina Abdullah, a BLM leader who is a professor at California State University, Los Angeles (CSU-LA), is encouraging shoppers to use their money to support economic empowerment for minorities.


“We say ‘white capitalism’ because it’s important that we understand that the economic system and the racial structures are connected,” Abdullah said on her radio show, Beautiful Struggle, the show where Ratcliff was a guest.

“We have to not only disrupt the systems of policing that literally kill our people, but we have to disrupt the white supremacist, capitalistic, patriarchal, heteronormative system that is really the root cause of these police killings,” Abdullah added.

The BLM website states:

Quote:
“If you must buy, #BuyBlack. For a list of Black businesses, please visit backingblackbusiness.com and download the apps “Official” Black Wall Street for real-time Black-business mapped locations and MyClickUrban for #BlackXmas updates and Black events in your area.”


The campaign also calls on blacks to “#DIVEST from White corporations.”

“Donald Trump embodies White capitalism,” the BLM website states. “If you are anti-Trump, you should hold back your resources from him and the like.”

The BLM website links to another website, blackxmas.org, which includes a list of black organizations that should be supported financially.

The campaign, launched on November 24, is set to continue through January 1, 2018, according to the BLM website.
