As the Christmas holiday fast approaches, Blackxmas is urging its supports to not only buy from black-owned businesses this holiday, but actively stop purchasing from white-owned companies.
“We’re dreaming of a #Blackxmas. That means no spending with white companies from 11/26/2021 – 01/01/2022,” the website for the movement reads.
“As BLMLA organizer, Jan Williams, reminds us, ‘Capitalism doesn’t love Black people.’ 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 statement said.
