There’s a white, rich dude running the black boycott capitalism movement known as United Blackout.

His name is Michael Latt and he is the marketing director of United Blackout.

“Control how Black money is spent and you win the game,” says United Blackout’s campaign video. And Latt seeks to deliver

He lives the lifestyles of the rich and fabulous on his Facebook page.

BREAKING: Meet The Rich White Guy Who Is Running the Black Boycott of Capitalism #Ferguson

Seen this story and the irony is monumental.

A rich white guy whose face book presented lifestyle is of the ........1% in Occupy propaganda speak...... wants to control all the African American spending money power.

The people rioting are eating it up like hotcakes.

These movements are never spontaneous and leaderless, just goes to show.

Oh he works for Sony pictures too.

You're outraged that a marketing specialist did work for a social campaign that wanted to reach people? You get that he didn't start up the campaign, right?

I don't get how that site came up with their title either since in their article they clearly differentiate the person who started the campaign with the marketing specialist.

Clickbate! Bet it felt good, didn't it?

Consider controlled opposition here. Is the proposed action designed to deflect and exhaust local passion into a dead end ally.

Might some other action be more realistic, achievable and more easily defined? Perhaps something like all police wear cameras that record video, sound and transit data back to several secure data facilities, may be a more realistic and achievable goal.

What does a black boycott on Ferguson capitalism mean? What is going to replace it, what will it look like when its achieved? what are the specific, realistic, achievable and measurable objectives going to be. ???

I suspect the whole thing is about deflecting then leading it off into some dead end non specific undefined objective, designed to confuse, diffuse focus and drain energy into the gutter.

Actually, here's how it works. #BlackoutBlackFriday actually was started by Ryan Coogler. Coogler made a film called "Fruitvale Station", which was a film about the last 24 hours of the life of Oscar Grant, who was also an unarmed black man shot to death by police. The distribution deal for the film was through Weinstein Company of which, Michael Latt was the entertainment marketing director for the film, Fruitvale Station that happens to have been Ryan Coogler's film.

Now, the guy was the marketing director for a film about an unarmed black man shot by police. Now I know this might actually be hard for you to conceptualize for a moment but imagine that...the man that was the entertainment marketing director for another man's film gets on board for something else that this prize winning filmmaker is doing. And according to his Linkedin, he's not apparently working right now so I guess he has some free time to do something that he might actually think is positive in this world.

Maybe the movie got to him. Imagine that.

PS. Kudos to Latt for using his talents for good.

Yeah, good thing they found a rich white guy to lead their all black movement against white oppression.

You cannot see the comedy in that? Then the hypocrisy? How about the double standard of the rich white guy who states he wants to control "all black money"? Don't you think he is counting on all of that "black money" to be directed into his coffers for all of his future projects? Talk about cornering a market and all those rioters being led by the nose just to make some rich white guy richer.

What truly gets me about this whole business is that a policeman should not have to shoot an unarmed person. However, if he is being menaced by a man who is clearly much stronger and able to take him down easily, then surely he should shoot to drop, not kill.

This rule should apply to all citizens yet when a white kid is shot by a black policeman we don't have the uprising because people seem to accept its OK to kilol a white unarmed man/big kid.

When did the shoot to kill arrive? Isn't it really about police brutality all over the USA and now in the UK also? When did our police get so violent and separate themselves from the public?

These are issues that need to be redressed by both black and white people, not some black riot mob which will only give the arm chair politicians a view that does not reflect truly all blacks or whites across the world. By allowing people to trade on separating people its easier to control smaller blocks of power than a huge united one.

You need to think of the politics behind the scene that are operating here and not let them secretly choreograph, thereby hijacking your actions to suit their purpose.

I have absolutely 0 problem with fact that he is "White and rich " as long as he is keeping it real, the idea that old line Black folks tend to spend their money on the wrong things and not circulating it among themselves at-least 3-4 times as others do naturally without even thinking about it is not a new discussion within the community,new line Black folks (immigrants) do things slightly differently and the results shows, so kudos to him I am neither anti white nor anti-capitalist, in another thread I pretty much laid out the same thing.
www.abovetopsecret.com...
Here^^ fact is Black folks collective spending power is

African-American’s Buying Power Projected to be $1.1 Trillion By 2015
The report’s findings, which will be presented at the June conference of the National Association of Black Accountants Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, found that the African American population is an economic force to be reckoned with, with a projected buying power of $1.1 trillion by 2015.

Also worth noting, the population of African-American consumers growth outpaces the rest of the population by 30 percent. Additionally, the demographic is younger, more educated and has higher incomes than commonly believed.

According to the study: between 2000 and 2009, the number of African Americans attending some college or earning degrees has grown: 45 percent of men; 54 percent of women. Households earning $75,000 or more grew by more than 60 percent, faster than the rest of the population. African American’s average income nationwide is $47,290.

So what does this all mean in business terms? It means African Americans wield tremendous buying power. The Nielsen study showed numerous shopping trends, mostly for household, health and beauty, travel, smart phones and child related items.

“The Nielsen report is very encouraging because it shows the African American population is a tremendous financial asset to this country’s economic recovery,” says Calvin Harris, Jr. , President & CEO of the National Association of Black Accountants.


Some said If AAs were their own country they would be in the top 10 countries in terms of GDP, so there is money in the community just badly used and not always appreciated,in another thread I suggest, not for AAs alone but others as well how to get by without relying on banks too much that may deny you loans for start-ups a home or sending your kids through college in the Caribbean communities it's called Susu or partners and that's one of the reason folks from the island move ahead

Black Incomes Surpass Whites in Queens


Across the country, the income gap between blacks and whites remains wide, and nowhere more so than in Manhattan. But just a river away, a very different story is unfolding.

Multimedia
Racial Income Gap

Racial Income Gap

Suzanne DeChillo/The New York Times
Kenneth C. Holder, elected to a judgeship last year, says he could move from Queens, “but why?”

Suzanne DeChillo/The New York Times
Elvira and Lloyd Hicks at home in Cambria Heights, where they moved from Harlem in 1959.

The New York Times
In Queens, the median income among black households, nearing $52,000 a year, has surpassed that of whites in 2005, an analysis of new census data shows. No other county in the country with a population over 65,000 can make that claim. The gains among blacks in Queens, the city’s quintessential middle-class borough, were driven largely by the growth of two-parent families and the successes of immigrants from the West Indies. Many live in tidy homes in verdant enclaves like Cambria Heights, Rosedale and Laurelton, just west of the Cross Island Parkway and the border with Nassau County.

David Veron, a 45-year-old lawyer, is one of them. He estimates that the house in St. Albans that he bought with his wife, Nitchel, three years ago for about $320,000 has nearly doubled in value since they renovated it. Two-family homes priced at $600,000 and more seem to be sprouting on every vacant lot, he says.

“Southeast Queens, especially, had a heavy influx of West Indian folks in the late 80’s and early 90’s,” said Mr. Veron, who, like his 31-year-old wife, was born on the island of Jamaica. “Those individuals came here to pursue an opportunity, and part of that opportunity was an education,” he said. “A large percentage are college graduates. We’re now maturing and reaching the peak of our earning capacity.”

My sister now lives in that neighborhood^ the general pattern is Brooklyn first then Queen or Long Island then Atlanta or Miami.
If our old line AA counter part would adopt some of our system combined with their amazing creativeness and numbers then places like Furguson would be a whole other story.

In theory it is possible to "shoot to drop" if you have nano-second reflexes and precision vision. But any target is likely to be running, bobbing about, staggering, making aggressive motions, so any attempt to hit a non-vital part of the body isn't going to be precise. Then they are usually doped up on drugs sometimes eliminating any sensation of pain, requiring multiple strikes. Then medical complications can lead to a non-lethal strike becoming fatal.

And it isn't just black people who are being shot up - it's whites and family pets as well. If you turn this into a racial issue, you are just allowing yourselves to be divided-and-conquered.

Naw, that is just Hollywood. They sit around empathizing about the poor, patting each other on their backs as they eat their $400 lunch...

It's been pointed out to you twice now that the title is an outright lie, and the lie is repeated a few times throughout the article but does note that Ryan Coogler is the 'leader' and Michael Latt was just the marketing specialist.

This thread needs to be removed or moved to LOL.

I'm not surprised, the OP made claims about another Ferguson protester yesterday in another thread and then disappeared when i informed him that i could not find the evidence that he claimed was easily available and invited him to back up his claims.

Pretty pathetic really.
