Peaceful Extortion in NuLu

Radical left protestors are demanding that local businesses in New Louisville (NuLu) cave in and sign a contract to pay reparations or face negative online reviews for their businesses.

The letter reads,

The residents of Louisville, Kentucky are standing strong, educated, and together to express the destruction your business has caused to low-income communities, specifically those with majority black residents…We therefore demand representation and reparations in the NuLu business district of Louisville for the gentrification that has taken place. The policies and processes of the revitalization on NuLu has displaced marginalized people from homes their families have often resided for generations, single-handedly progressing the gentrification of black neighborhoods.”

This process has been happening to black, indigenous, and persons of color at the hands of white, heterosexual patriarchy since the inception of this nation we call home. Black folx [sic] can’t ‘have this own space’ when wealthy white folks see an opportunity to make more money…Gentrification is a palatable term that sugar coats one more aspect of an oppressive system targeted at black folx [sic] for 400 years. We are here today to demand representation over tokenism.

Do these crazies honestly think such actions will endear voters in November? We neither.
