Quick observation: Black Lives Matter’s leaders insist their protests are peaceful. If they are peaceful, I’d have thought that the patrons of the stores in Chicago could just walk right through their cordons and do their Christmas shopping. Sales were down, reportedly, anywhere from 25-50%. I doubt this is a way to ‘win friends and influence enemies.’ I also doubt this is peaceful.
Could they have voiced their grievances in a way which more Americans could have been won over to the points they do make regarding police brutality and laws seemingly going against Blacks so often? How?
Christmas shopping is a sweet and happy thing to do. Sad that this was interfered with in Chicago.
