Sick and tired of racist and Marxist rhetoric, a group of black clergy are calling on corporate America to defund the radical “Black Lives Matter” group
Conservative Clergy of Color, a national non-partisan civil rights advocacy group, “is calling on corporations and business leaders to withdraw their financial support from the Black Lives Matter movement following the launch of BLM’s annual boycott of these same companies,” the group announced.
Black clergy called out BLM for espousing the very racism it claims to oppose.
“BLM is actively attacking the very corporations that provide it with financial and public relations support through its annual #BlackXmas campaign, which seeks a ‘boycott of white capitalism’ by encouraging consumers to stop ‘spending with White corporations’ during the Christmas season,” CCC states.
“Business leaders who rely on Christmas shoppers for so much of their annual revenue yet also fund BLM, which promotes boycotts of these same companies through #BlackXmas, must pick a side: capitalism or Marxism,” said Conservative Clergy of Color co-founder Bishop Audrey Shines. “It’s time for them to de-fund BLM now, stop the movement from ‘biting the hand that feeds it,’ and stand up against attacks on faith-based American traditions including Christmas. Most of all, corporations need to remember that #ChristmasMatters to Americans.
“Corporations have many other options to be a part of the national dialogue about race without capitulating to Marxists,” Shines continued. “Capitalism is the greatest economic force in history, which has lifted billions of people – including tens of millions of blacks Americans – out of poverty, especially over the past 60 years.”
“It is possible to have social justice without socialism, and it is possible to have racial justice without racism,” Shines said. “We want to help business leaders understand they can use their power and influence for good without supporting a movement that attacks cherished American principles and values which have helped make America the land of opportunity for all of its people.”
The Black Lives Matter movement, with multiple leftist group using the name, has received millions of dollars in funding from American corporations who fear being targeted by the movement – even though they seek to destroy the businesses themselves.
Despite claiming to speak for black Americans, “Black Lives Matter” protests seem to be exclusively by white socialists, using the problems of the black community to push an unrelated Marxist agenda.
