Part I: BLM prescription for restorative justice

Chanelle Helm, co-founder of BLM-Louisville wrote the following:

1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will (i.e. give) your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.

2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.

3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.

4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will (give) your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate (give) to black funds for land purchasing.

7. White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the f*** they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.

8. Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ d***-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.

9. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.

10. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.

 One of the major disconnects in this screed is that A.) Chanelle Helm is a self-professed Marxist and B.) Helms (I won't even attempt a pronoun) seems incredibly concerned about the acquisition of private-property when, as a Marxist, she is committed to outlawing the private ownership of property.

Kind of makes you wonder if she is more of an opportunist than a Marxist.


  1. Numbers 7, 8, 9 & 10 are very disturbing. We could be attacked socially and economically for no reason other than a crazy having a hate-rage fit. I'm glad I'm not in business anymore. I know I'd be in trouble and my office would get destroyed. ---ken

  2. Hey black people ! If you have any unwanted children, that didn't get aborted that is, donate your kid to a deserving white family. Despite our White Privilege, my family is in need of some inexpensive labor. I have had some surgery and can't lift heavy objects. This presents a wonderful opportunity for a couple of black families. Get rid of one mouth you have to feed in these uncertain times. I will engage the labor of a couple of black teenagers for a term of three months. It would require only the use of muscles no confusing thinking involved. Just need a strong back for lifting and carrying- no cotton will be picked. After the three months I will write a fair recommendation to find another employment opportunity. The opportunity does not involve transfer of filthy money but room and board is included. Contact Box 582. Serious inquiries only.

  3. Didn't we try a lot of this stuff with that thing called the "Great Society"? Yeah, that worked so well we should try it again.

    Of course, that is the leftist method - keep doing things that don't work and are utter failures because they make us feel better, or gives us more power.

  4. Joe, you're old enough to know that Marxism is opportunism: An opportunity to elevate one's station from its proletarian roots into the new ruling class. Should anything on this list of demands come to pass, she's standing ready to take credit for all her 'accomplishments'.
