"Black Lives Matter Holds Rally Supporting Individuals Arrested in Chicago Looting Monday" https://t.co/mUuSg5E3UV

Black Lives Matter Chicago held a rally in solidarity with looters this week, holding a sign that said, “our futures have been looted from us… LOOT BACK.”
Apparently, this is a reference to the historical event where white people came out of their caves and stole the civilization of black people, including their pyramids.
The pro-looter rally did not make national news.
Members of Black Lives Matter held a solidarity rally on Monday night with the more than 100 individuals who were arrested after a night of looting and unrest in Chicago.
The rally was held at the South Loop police station where organizers say those individuals are currently being held in custody.
“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,” Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, said. “That makes sure that person has clothes.”
Black Lives Matter Chicago organized the rally after overnight unrest throughout the city, with police saying that more than 100 individuals were taken into custody for a variety of offenses, including looting.
“That is reparations,” Atkins said. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”
I don’t know why national media skipped over it.
Surely, this is a way to bring sympathy to the blacks by showing that even their looting extravaganzas are political and the fault of white people.
Instead, the mainstream media continues to falsely claim that the looting and the protesting are separate phenomenons.
