Now They Are Trying Extortion
I guess if you support BLM you also support their mafia tactics and their attempt at extortion.
Members of Louisville's Cuban community plan to gather Sunday in support of a NuLu restaurant owner who says he was threatened by Black Lives Matter protesters during a recent demonstration.
Fernando Martinez, a partner of the Olé Restaurant Group, was one of dozens of business owners in the downtown Louisville district who recently received a letter from protesters laying out demands that aim to improve diversity in the area, which is known for its locally-owned shops and restaurants.
Martinez has publicly denounced the demands on Facebook, calling them "mafia tactics" used to intimidate business owners. And on Thursday, a small group of protesters confronted him outside his newest restaurant, La Bodeguita de Mima, on East Market Street....
The demands and an attached contract, which were created by local [BLM] organizers and activists, ask NuLu business owners to:
Purchase a minimum of 23% inventory from Black retailers or make a recurring monthly donation of 1.5% of net sales to a local Black nonprofit or organization;
The hubris of BLM adherents believing anyone owes them anything. They've proven time and time again to be an organization of thugs who will break windows, loot businesses and assault business owners. I don't support such an organization. I support Americans who work hard for what they have.
So who will you support? The entrepreneurial immigrants or the BLM extortionists? I know, tough question for some.
