TOTAL BLACKOUT FOR POLICE BRUTALITY REFORM
We cannot trust those in position of authority to deliver appropriate consequences to those officers who commit unlawful atrocities against innocent citizens. So to vindicate the latest victims of police brutality, and protect OURSELVES from future attacks---WE MUST TAKE ACTION. WE need to effect change. WE need to FORCE it. If we don't it may be one of our loved ones whose victimization by police spurs yet another protest, another moment of silence. We can do better than a moment of silence to prevent another tragedy--don't you think??
SO ON NOVEMBER 28TH--BLACK FRIDAY---DON'T SPEND ONE DIME, DON'T SWIPE YOUR CREDIT, DEBIT OR METRO CARD--DON'T USE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. If you must go to work, try and use the gas that's already in your car, or start organizing a car pool with a co-worker today. If you can walk--walk. If you can ride a bike, do so. If you can plan to use a sick day, even better. Take a personal day, if you can. But if you absolutely cannot--please don't spend any money or credit.
On November 28TH, do not patronize any neighborhood/commercial businesses, or fast food restaurants (i.e. bodegas, supermarkets, Chinese restaurants, shopping malls, etc.) Pay your bills one day early, or one day late... DON'T ADD ONE DIME TO THE ECONOMY.
The government doesn't run this country--the wealthy do. As a whole, black people contribute TRILLIONS to the economy yearly. That's right--TRILLIONS. Communities of people outside of our own make their LIVING off of our support.
So what do you think will happen if we pull our dollar--even for 24 hours?!
A NATIONAL BLACKOUT, with an international ripple effect to boot.
Don't you think the authorities will listen to our demands for justice then? If you don't, think again. The threat of losing money bears more weight than any protest, petition, or moment of silence. So, UNTIL EVERY SINGLE OFFICER OF THE LAW IS REQUIRED TO WEAR BODY-WORN CAMERAS (BWCs), WE AS A COMMUNITY WILL PULL OUR DOLLAR ON DESIGNATED DATES, FOR INCREASING DURATIONS, AS LONG AS WE HAVE TO UNTIL THIS NECESSITY IS MET!
Those in positions of authority and power don't care about a noisy protest. They get to flex their muscles during a riot--they want it with us!!
WE CAN DO MORE THAN WE'VE BEEN DOING. THIS TIME, LET'S HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS--IN THEIR WALLETS!
THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.
