The Cuban community of Louisville stands up against the BLM threats and shakedown money. I think this type of "Protection Racket" used to be called "Extortion" when we had laws that applied to criminals. The Cubans are publicly denouncing "socialism" and all the great things that come with it.

BLM and other "community organizations" are mad that he went public with the shakedown demands instead of negotiating with them... LOL.

Cuban Community Rallies Behind NuLu Restaurant After Controversy Over BLM Demands

www.wkms.org.../0




Dozens from Louisville’s Cuban community gathered in NuLu on Sunday evening for a rally in support of an immigrant-owned restaurant that pushed back against demands for greater Black representation in NuLu.

On Sunday, Martinez explained his issue was not with Louisville’s Black community but with “socialism,” which he said he escaped in leaving Cuba for the U.S.

“We’re here to work. We’re dreamers. We’re people who love freedom and love this country,” Martinez said about Cuban-Americans. “This is not a race fight. This is an idea fight.”

Berta Weyenberg, president of the Cuban American Association of Kentucky, estimated there are 250,000 Cubans in Kentucky. In an interview, she emphasized that Cuban Americans were committed to the values and ideals of their adopted country.

“We came here not because we wanted to come. We fell in love with your city and your country after being here because you welcomed us,” she said. “We are here to defend the freedom that you all gave us that we didn’t have.”

Martinez has publicly denounced the demands on Facebook, calling them "mafia tactics" used to intimidate business owners. And on Thursday, a small group of protesters confronted him outside his newest restaurant, La Bodeguita de Mima, on East Market Street.

"There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in," Martinez wrote in his Facebook post. "... All good people need to denounce this. How can you justified (sic) injustice with more injustice?"



Cuban restaurant owner in Louisville reveals how BLM sent him blackmail letter with diversity demands that he was told to meet or risk social media shaming, a public boycott and his storefront 'f***** with' (The shakedown letter is displayed at this site


www.dailymail.co.uk...




It demanded that businesses employ at least 23 percent black staff, bought at least 23 percent of their inventory from black retailers or make a recurring donation of 1.5 percent of their net sales to a local black charity, and that they should display a sign showing their support for the movement.

It also listed a series of 'repercussions' if the businesses didn't comply which included a boycott, social media shaming, and an 'invasive reclamation' whereby black owned businesses with competing goods of services would set up 'booths and tables' outside the store fronts.

They are extorting the wrong people.

Cubans like me are extremely anti-communist. Those of us old enough to remember the revolution (my mother) remembers the extortion, murder, and destruction that Marxists are so good at.

Now the Marxists lord over extreme privation. It'll happen here if we let them.

That’s straight up racketeering. Is BLM looking for RICO charges? I thought I saw another poster on here recently relating some of their shtick to RICO qualifications.

BLM are nothing but criminals looking for job security.

Extortion, in their eyes, beats the hell out of having to work.

23% black staff and 23% inventory from a black supplier..How does that work if 20% is one in five and 25% is one in four.
So what is 23%?
That right there is ridiculous, never mind the rest of the demands

BLM is doing a great job of turning more people against them. Please, BLM, continue as you are doing and you will be no more.

Why is the FBI not investigating this?

Great post OP, thanks for getting this out there.

I stand with the Cuban community in Lousville and elsewhere. Anyone subjected to this type of racism, bigoted, disgusting extortion needs to come forward and out the perpetrators.

I think we all of us need to Wake The F Up right now. In case any of us are missing the broadcast....these tactics are being utilized *everyplace* at the moment. No place of business, no walk of life, from restaurants to board rooms, are left out of this pursuit.

This kind of forced racial representation is being implemented right now in nearly every corporate entity, under the guise of "diversity". Look at who are pushing these 'initiatives'. Look at who they are benefiting. Some races are more diverse than others.

It's long past time to start pushing back, and I mean that as 'inclusively' as it can be constructed, and I ain't being ironic. Whites, Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, all races, all creeds need to come together and squash this NOW.

No more quotas. No more forced diversity. No more forced inclusion.

You will be employed, compensated and rewarded COMMENSURATE WITH YOUR INDIVIDUAL MERIT. PERIOD. Full stop, unplug the keyboard and throw it out the window.

23%.

23%?!

Did they just pick that number out of hat, or just double their national proportion of the population for good measure. See how this works? They want over-representation in any field of endeavor that is lucrative and for whatever reason they haven't already made inroads.

But entertainment? Music?? Professional sports?

[[CRICKETS]]

We don't want no diversity and inclusion there.

This issue will continue to polarize and divide until it is brought out into the open and the agitators, race pimps and privilege peddlers are shut down. We are staring at the Red Scare of our time, directly in the face.

If somebody in BLM wants to [Q]ueer me they'll have to try
a little harder. Signs on the lawn DO NOT equal support at
the polls unless you're a L.I. voter... and the information is
starting to dribble out no matter how many slivery clothespins
on the hotdawg.
I say most of even the top dawgs at BLM never had to live under
the real, flawed (or worse) human kind of socialism,er communism.

And another thing...why is that the only media outlet showing/displaying the "List of Demands" is the @#$%ing. Daily mail in UK. When's this getting play on CNN, MSNBC, Fox.

Outrageous.

Your American media, hard at work, canvassing the pavement for any and all stories relevant to social justice. Errr, wait, certain flavors or racial justice.

You understand the breadth and depth of these ongoing media coverups, censorship, the MSM picking and choosing the plaintiffs of 'social justice' campaigns, and then it dawns on you, that this whole comparison of the direction of US society to Marxism is not hyperbole. Like a page right out of the Pravda playbook. It's happening, right now in front of you, better @#$%ing believe it.

Thinking it would be funny to open a business called 'Soap With Hair On It Because Whites Don't Use Washcloths' to see if they can put me out of business.

Who exactly sent this letter of demands?

Is there a source, a name?

It’s not exactly official looking.

It's not official looking because it isn't. It's just a bunch of BLM thugs making demands and vandalizing those who don't comply.

Take your choice. BLM activist are crying that he went public instead of negotiating with them.


BLM organizer Talesha Wilson said that the businesses owners who did not want to cave to extortion demands under threat of intimidation were "childish" and "performative." Wilson said Martinez should have spoken to BLM activists directly rather than stage a public protest. She said that "There were ways for him to deal with it other than calling out a whole movement of people."

"He needs to take into consideration that there are going to be bad apples everywhere," Wilson said. Other BLM activists shared their dismay that Martinez chose not to adhere to the demands and went public over this refusal.


Or here is a good one:

The Louisville, KY, co-founder and organizer for Black Lives Matter, Charlotte Helm, drafted a list of requests for white people for things she believed should change.

The increasingly popular topic of reparations has floated around certain circles as some believe economic transfers may redress historical wrongs.

www.leoweekly.com...

1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.

2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.

3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.

4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

7. White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the # they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.

8. Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.

9. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.

10. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.

Exactly!

So, why blame BLM as a whole?

Does a Proudboy represent all whites?

Just trying to keep it in perspective.

Thanks

Every group has its radicals.

And as we’re finding — may be infiltrating.

Again — just trying to keep it in perspective.
