The L.A. chapter of BLM is launching a “Black Xmas” initiative, urging it’s members to boycott white-owned businesses this Christmas season in order to resist “white capitalism”. Do you see this as a just act of protest or an act of blatant racism?

It’s racist, but I guess they have a right to shop where they want.

By definition, anything done in exclusion of a particular race is racism.

Great idea but let's really show whitey something. Stop using anything invented by or built by white people. Sell it or just trash it.
