Black Lives Matter activists in Seattle are demanding homeowners willingly give up their property to Black people as a form of reparations because they’re “coming for it” one way or the other. Footage of the new demands was livestreamed Wednesday night by Concrete Reporting via the Periscope app and quickly spread across social media. “Give up your house,” exclaimed one of dozens of activists marching through a neighborhood. “Give black people back their homes. You’re sitting their comfortably — comfortable as f— as if they didn’t help gentrify this neighborhood. I used to live in this neighborhood and my family was pushed out and you’re sitting up there having a good time with your other white friends.” Another clip from the event circulating on Twitter features a man saying, “We’re coming for it. Reparation time.” The March continues months of Antifa and BLM protests, looting, and riots since the May 25 death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody. “Mediocrity with a Megaphone: Petulance on Parade,” tweeted Benjamin Boyce Thursday morning prior to an op-ed by the conservative blog Hot Air. “We’re not quite to the French Revolution stage of dragging people out of their homes yet but we seem to be inching closer,” observed writer John Sexton. “I wonder if this will catch on. The left is already comfortable going into suburban neighborhoods for protests (and vandalism) of elected officials homes. Singling out strangers seems like the next step. And it’s worth noting that this isn’t just harassment it’s explicitly racial harassment.” Mr. Sexton noted that the group also took its gentrification grievances to King County Councilmember Girmay Zahilay. “I say this land transfer stuff is really important,” Mr. Zahilay said Wednesday. “One of the pieces of the Black Lives Matter demands is economic justice for black people for indigenous people. That needs to look like land transfer in my opinion because land is wealth. Land gets you the facilities and the buildings that you need to take care of one another.”

Description: The request was from a list of demands to white people
A Black Lives Matter chapter co-founder wrote a controversial list of demands to white people, involving the surrendering of property to black people. The Louisville, KY, co-founder and organizer for Black Lives Matter, Charlotte Helm, drafted a list of requests for white people for things she believed should change. The increasingly popular topic of reparations has floated around certain circles as some believe economic transfers may redress historical wrongs. Writing for LEO Weekly, Helms outlined a ten-point list of requests including five stipulations where a transfer of property is made to impoverished people of color: Her first request is simple, she demands that, “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.” The next request, in the same vein, demands more surrendering of property. Of course, white people will make up for the financial loss of their altruism due to “white privilege.” She writes: “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.” “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,” she adds. Rich or poor are not absolved from guilt; those looking to downsize are considered able to fork over property, too. “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,” she continues. And should change up your will, just in case any of your inheritors espouse problematic views. She demands: “White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.” Other requests involve getting “racists” fired, before bringing up the diminutive manhood of men accused of racism. Black Lives Matter has made a stellar comeback following the recent unlawful killing of suspected fraudster George Floyd, sparking a series of riots and protests across the world. In 2015, one of the BLM movements co-founders, Patreese Cullors, admitted that they were “trained Marxists” in an interview. She said: “[We are] trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories, and I think what we really try to do is build a movement that can be utilized by many, many black folk.” The recent protests have gone international, gripping international coverage.

Seattle BLM protesters to strangers: ‘Give up your house. Give black people back their homes.’

Discussion: Last night a group of anti-gentrification protesters in Seattle marched through a section of town for a couple hours to complain that white people were living on stolen land. Well, not stolen exactly. They aren’t claiming the black people who used to live in this neighborhood were pushed out at gunpoint. But they are claiming that an injustice has taken place because white people are now living in new homes in this formerly black neighborhood. The crowd of maybe 50 people was marching down the street after dark chanting “Black people used to live here!” At one point the woman holding the bullhorn and leading the chants noticed a group of white residents having a party on the roof of a multi-story apartment building. “We’re talking to you gentrifiers,” she said. The crowd stopped next to the building and continued chanting at the people on the roof. At this point one of the other organizers called for a pause so he could say something. “Hey guys, do you know that you are living in a historically black neighborhood right now?” he shouted from the street. “Do you know that before your white ass came here this was all black people?” he added. “Do you know that people like you came in here and basically bought all the land from the black people less than what it was worth, kicked them out so you could live here? Do you know that? Cause if you don’t, now you f**kin do so do something about it.” “Open your wallet,” the woman with the bullhorn interjected. The other organizer shouted, “How do you plan to fix it because you are living on black people’s land right now.” He quickly corrected himself, “I mean native land but black people lived here too.” The woman on the bullhorn had a suggestion for how to fix it. “Is your name [inaudible] or John, whatever it is, give up your house. Give black people back their homes. You’re sitting their comfortably—comfortable as f**k as if they didn’t help gentrify this neighborhood.” She continued, “I used to live in this neighborhood and my family was pushed out and you’re sitting up there having a good time with your other white friends.” As the ranting from the street continued someone, maybe the bullhorn woman, said, “Guy in the window is calling the cops.” Not long after the crowd moved on.



How fringe is this group? I watched through the livestream and discovered they had held an impromptu outdoor meeting with King County councilmember Girmay Zahilay just a few minutes before this. Zahilay who is newly elected, was asked what more protesters could advocate for. “I say this land transfer stuff is really important,” he said. He continued, “One of the pieces of the Black Lives Matter demands is economic justice for black people for indigenous people. That needs to look like land transfer in my opinion because land is wealth. Land gets you the facilities and the buildings that you need to take care of one another.” He said his generation was tired of “symbolic gestures.” “We don’t want that s**t anymore, we want land…give back the land to the people that need it,” he said. Zahilay was talking specifically about land owned by King County but maybe that didn’t fully penetrate with the protesters. It appears what they got from it was: Give us your house. We’re not quite to the French Revolution stage of dragging people out of their homes yet but we seem to be inching closer. I wonder if this will catch on. The left is already comfortable going into suburban neighborhoods for protests (and vandalism) of elected officials homes. Singling out strangers seems like the next step. And it’s worth noting that this isn’t just harassment it’s explicitly racial harassment.
