    Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters issued “social justice” and “black liberation” demands regarding “diversity” to a restaurant owner in Louisville, KY, including a directive for “donations” to organizations run by non-whites.

    Listed demands from a BLM affiliate in Louisville include racial quotas for staff and ownership of business suppliers, donations to organizations run by non-whites, and adjustment to dress codes. The posters used the acronym “BIPOC” (“black or indigenous persons of color”) as a euphemism for non-white persons:

    23% of Staff is BIPOC in Front of House
    23% of inventory is from BIPOC retailer(s)
    Regular donations to BIPOC organization
    Dress code policy does not discriminate against BIPOC patrons of employees.

    I think they over estimate their power. So many corporations and individuals have given in to them, they think everyone should just roll over for their dictatorial demands.

    This though is, a believe, a bridge too far. But it is enlightening and instructive about what we are really dealing with.

    Communists and shakedown artists.

    BLM openly pays respects to the Black Panthers and they have long been compared to Jesse Jackson for shakedowns. The founders are black lesbian trained marxists who sided with Trayvon Martin who tried to kill Zimmerman. How would a Louisville restaurant be making any money these days? BLM has about a half a billion in donations but it is all going for expenses.

    Back in the 90s, the Black Panthers in Indianapolis tried to shakedown a small Korean business that sold beauty supplies and wigs. The owner wrote them a check and agreed to a monthly fee but there was so much news coverage that the Black Panthers never cashed the check.

    Okay, I know Kentucky has a D governor but an R state attorney general, this is extortion and these BLM people should be charged for it under RICO.

    Stupid idea anyways, quotas, how quaint. Hope these small businesses don't pay them a dime and vote with their feet.
