Looting is a slavery reparations payment! What?

Black Lives Matter members in Chicago held a rally on Monday to support the more than 100 arrested last night following widespread looting and rioting that caused at least $60 million in property damage and saw 13 police officers injured, according to a report. The rally was organized by Black Lives Matter Chicago and was held at a police station in the South Loop where organizers say individuals are currently being held in custody. At least one organizer called the looting tantamount to "reparations." “I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” said Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, according to NBC Chicago. “That makes sure that person has clothes.” Remarkably, the looting and rioting itself was based on a false statement by BLM that a 15 year old unarmed black teenager had been shot by the Chicago police, much like the false information that lead to looting an droits after known felon Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer after he had committed crimes in a store and by assaulting the officer.
