Ariel Atkins, an organizer with Black Lives Matter Chicago, said that looting was “reparations” and urged the looters to continue, because businesses “have insurance.” She said, “I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats, that makes sure that person has clothes.” “That is reparations. Anything they want to take, take it, because these businesses have insurance. They’re gonna get their money back.” Atkins’ statement came after a chaotic night that saw 13 police officers injured, and $60-million worth of property damage. Chicago Black Lives Matter says they will continue to “rouse up” until the Chicago Police Department is abolished. -GEG

Bull crap. It is a bunch of animals too lazy to work stealing from those that get up and pay the freight. They deserve NOTHING. They have sacrificed NOTHING. They are lazy criminal leaches that should be arrested and put in jail.

This is the end product of LBJ’s great society.

Someone should ask her what people should do to her in compensation for all the harm blacks or females or morons or mask-wearers or glasses-wearers or other-categories-she-happens-to-satisfy have done to humans over the past 250,000 years or so. I’m sure her answer will be interesting to hear … and laugh off as insane.

Start a business and say that. lol. This is absurd.
If you gave me a magic wand, I’d change 2 things in the US.

1. Fatherless homes.
2. The Federal reserve.

If these 2 issues weren’t issues, I doubt we’d have a character in our country saying anything remotely close to these words.
