Black Lives Matter is calling for people to shop only at black-owned businesses during the holiday season.

“We’re dreaming of a #Blackxmas. That means no spending with white companies from 11/26/2021 – 01/01/2022,” states.

“Beginning in 2014, in response to John Crawford’s murder by police in Beavercreek, Ohio, Black Lives Matter has been challenging people to ‘dream of a #BlackXmas,’ to intentionally use our economic resources to disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism and build Black community,” Black Lives Matter noted in a post on its website about the campaign.

“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 post said.

Black Lives Matter is also calling for people to do their banking with black-owned banks and to give money to organizations that serve and are headed by black individuals.

“Move your money from white corporate banks (that finance gentrification, prisons, and environmental degradation) to Black-owned ones,” the group said. “Invest in Black-led, Black-serving organizations by making donations in the names of your loved ones as holiday gifts.”

“Let’s harness our economic power to disrupt white-supremacist-capitalism and build Black community. #BlackXmas is about being self-determined and dismantling existing structures by building new, and more viable, beneficial ones[ … ]in the names of our mightiest and most righteous warrior Ancestors, in the names of all those stolen by police violence, in honor of our community, and as a commitment to the generations to come,” Black Lives Matter declared.

Last week as Americans feasted on Thanksgiving, Black Lives Matter declared that people were having their meals “on stolen land.”

“Colonization never ended, it just became normalized,” a graphic shared by the organization said. “Find out which ancestral homeland you’re currently occupying here:”
