BLM Anarchists Give Business Owners List of ‘Repercussions of Non-Compliance’


Business owners in Louisville, Kentucky’s “NuLu” East Market District are being extorted by Black Lives Matter anarchists who just issued a list of “repercussions” for non-compliance with their demands. Local officials apparently aren’t raising a finger to stop it, so that must mean they endorse the shakedown.

A letter to business owners

Merchants in what used to be called the East Market District in Louisville, Kentucky, are being handed a “letter” from local representatives of Black Lives Matter, demanding the business owners comply with a shifting list of demands. Non-compliance, they warn, will have “repercussions.”

Since the new Millenium rolled around, the area has grown into a “hip, affluent” cultural experience re-branded as “NuLu.” Known far and wide as a cultural mecca, the neighborhood features everything from “upscale New American cuisine to casual BBQ.” Stylish bars pour craft beer and exclusive bourbon. Shops display “vintage clothing, women’s fashion, gourmet eats or restored furniture.” If you’re looking for something to hang on the wall, “contemporary galleries stay open late for the monthly First Friday.” That’s the night local business owners team up to hold the “Hop street party, with art shows, live music, shopping and street food.

All of the productive merchants who carved out a personal slice of the American dream to become small business owners, with a reasonable reliance on property rights, as guaranteed by the Constitution, are now subject to the whims and demands of Black Lives Matter anarchists. Worse, the officials who swore to uphold the law are out there helping the anarchists to break them.

Five possible penalties for non-compliance

Various versions of the demand letter are floating around the neighborhood but they generally agree that there will be five possible “repercussions of non-compliance,” starting with a ding in the merchant’s “Racial Index Score,” whatever that means. As noted in the letter, that looks like it entails a “Bias report” against the owners to the Better Business Bureau.

Any balky business owners can expect a negative “social media blast” which entails notification “via all social media platforms, of non-compliance.” The next level up is a boycott by the public, “coordinated through social media and mail announcements, of your NuLu establishment AND any other business ventures owned by you.” They also have rioters on hand, standing by with ball peen hammers to conduct a visible “media-covered demonstration/sit-in outside your establishment.”

They came up with one interesting way to fight back against those nasty racist capitalists who won’t give in to their demands. They will fight fire with fire by becoming business owners themselves without any of those nasty regulations or the need for buildings. Blacks intend to squat on local sidewalks and offer alternative goods and services. They call it “Invasive Reclamation.” The scheme is spelled out, “placement of booths/tables outside your establishment where competing Black proprietors will offer items comparable to those offered by you.” First, they have to put down the bong and get up off the couch.


Two lists of demands

There are at least two versions of the demand list going around. They agree that business owners must “adequately represent the black population of Louisville,” by “having a minimum of 23% black staff.” Demand number 2 builds on that by insisting that retail locations like shopping malls have at least 23% black retailers. They have the option to pay “a recurring monthly donation of 1.5% of net sales to black local organizations.”

All business owners are required to schedule diversity and inclusion training twice a year, “to be conducted by any one of the black women leaders on the attached list.” They also have to post an “approved” sign promoting “support for the reparations movement.” Non-profits “will submit to a voluntary, external audit of their board of trustees and take necessary steps towards 23% representation on those boards.” All business owners must also “participate in quarterly round-table discussions to be held accountable for their communities to these demands.”

Optionally, as demanded by the second version of the letter, business owners are required to “Maintain adequate black representation in any entertainment and performances booked at your business.” The second controversial demand was “You must eliminate dress code policies that promote profiling towards patrons and employees, including their hair requirements or stipulations, which can disproportionately target black folks.” The demand for “23% black representation on the board of the NuLu Business Association” was listed as number 9 on the expanded version but combined with number one on the original version.


    • Yes Its time to line up these commie anti Americans and take them Shark fishing. We have Fought wars on foreign soil and now these commies are on American soil. if we can fight and die on foreign soil,we can fight and shoot these Invaders on American soil. Arm up and Ammo up Patriots

  1. Wish I lived there and owned a business.
    Tell them to go fu** themselves and blow their he*** off.
    Time to take care of this shi*

  2. The really sad thing is that the local government officials are intimidated into submission and will not stand up to the obviously criminal acts of extortion. When the mafia extorted money for “protection” it was called organized crime. What is the difference. If this keeps up, the peaceful citizens and business owners will stand up when they have had enough. We will have a mini civil war for sure.

  3. Give the blm a very plain message – -“FU and the hoss ya rode in on”! – -and then be prepared to fight back. You have city ordinances, use them.

  4. If America is still functioning, this is extortion, plain & simple. Even better, it could be handled as a RICO investigation of all these interrelated interstate gangs. My personal opinion is that America is no longer functioning, and is totally controlled by an anti-American cabal. I hope I’m wrong.

  5. If the local civic “leaders” are too gutless to stomp out this kind if crap, there ought to be some Federal law dogs that would like to sink their teeth onto these criminals. They didn’t hesitate to go after the Mafia big wigs, who were a lot tougher than bunch of street thugs. I’m not a lawyer, but it seems that the RICO standards night apply here.

  6. This is a free country and it is unconstitutional to demand something from others like this. They have the freedom to have their business as they choose. This group of anachists needs to be put in their place. Law in order.or Id say the businesses should pack up and move out and leave a vacuum for the anachists to set up their tents without businesses to shop at. Or send in the military to set up law and order.

  7. WAIT! Isn’t that extortion & racketeering… LIKE THE MAFIA?!?
    Those are serious crimes!

    If you don’t pay us a certain amount each month we will do this & this & this to you…
