While #BlackLivesMatter leaders claim to want to use progressive big government solutions to solve the plight of African Americans, other activists see the movement as a major moneymaking opportunity.
Vice released a video on Friday of two #BlackLivesMatter activists who have decided to profit off of white guilt by creating a subscription box for white liberals to apologize about their privilege.
The Safety Pin Box is a monthly subscription service created by Leslie Mac and Marissa Jenae Johnson, two #BlackLivesMatter activists who have found a way to capitalize on a left-wing socialist movement.
Ironically, Mac’s parents are immigrants to this country who came here for a better a life and more opportunity. Now, their daughter is claiming her adopted country is oppressing her.
According to their website, guilty white people can buy safety pins to show they’re a “safe white person” for as little as $25 a month all the way up to $100. Liberals can even send a revenge box to Trump supporters which will include the safety pins and stories about the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Along with the pin is a list of assignments to make someone a more woke and responsible white person willing to acknowledge the sins they didn’t commit and try to fight against phantom microaggressions that don’t exist.
While some of the funds made off the subscription box are used to benefit black women activists with grant money, the two ladies all sell t-shirts that say “I Pay Reparations” and “Pay What You Owe Me.”
Apparently, Mac is owed something from white America despite her family not having a link to being American slaves, living under Jim Crow, or having to fight against segregation.
Evan McMorris-Santoro of Vice News asked Mac if she would be using the money for activism of using it buy a new car.
“Well I might get a new car,” Mac said laughing. “I’m not willing to say on the air that I’m going to get a new car, I might get a new car but I would have earned that car… (White people) could just write a check, but we’re providing a service people are asking for, so there’s a market.”
Yes, these ladies are modern day freedom fighters and undoubtedly the descendants of Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks.
