Isaiah Washington Pushes for Monthly Boycotts: ‘The Impact is Real’

On the Oct. 19 edition of CNN’s “Connect the World,” actor and activist of The #Missing24 Campaign Isaiah Washington believes that frequent boycotts is the only concrete way to end police brutality.

After the fatal police-involved shootings of Tulsa’s Terence Crutcher and Charlotte’s Keith Scott, Washington took to Facebook in September to advocate for a national one day boycott. “… Pick ONE DAY to simply ‘stay at home’ from every single job, work site, sports arena and government office in the United States of America,” he suggested.

In the clip, Washington piggybacks on his previous statements from last month. He adds that he wants to create something more than just a movement for Black liberation. “Obviously protesting and rioting has been very beneficial … It has not help the people itself. It has caused a lot of injuries on both sides … You’re being arrested and you have to post bail into the same system you feel is disrespecting you.”

 

Washington tells the host that he supports the Black Lives Matter movement but he does not believe in movements. To him, a movement can be started and stopped immediately. So with the #Missing24 campaign, Washington wants to continue the work of the founders by having boycotts on the 24th of every month. It initially have taken place on the local level but he wants a worldwide boycott.

“The impact is real. The impact is necessary.”

FIRST WORLD WAR:  THE APPROXIMATELY 6,000 YEAR WORLD WAR ON AFRICA AND THE BLACK RACE

Original Post

Black people have to return to being strategic in their attempts to get what they want-like in the civil rights days.  Many stop taking public transportation and car pooled to work, church etc.  They did a lot of effective things that caused white America to take notice.  Youngins today don't LISTEN and look at what works and what don't....and that?  To me is what is hurting us.  We have to remove the arrogance of young black America otherwise the killings? Will continue.  But!

That's what it's going to take because Americans have been thoroughly programmed [beginning during slavery] to not give a damn about Black people, even Black children.  

So, African Americans are going to have to hit America the only place that matters, and that's in the pocketbook, in the economy, and it's going to have to be BIG, not any 'fair weather' or on/off boycott, but one where at least 75-80 percent of ALL Black people [including African, Caribbean and Diaspora immigrants] in America stop spending ANY money in America beyond absolute necessities.

It will have to be a boycott where African Americans stop spending any money in America for more than one day or one week; it must begin with at least one month,AND moving ALL African American money to African American Banks.  

Then from there six months, if no real Justice is obtained.  

If no real Justice after six months, then one year, and so on.
