Black Panthers surrounded Yum Yum’s restaurant on Washington’s 14th Street To Start Anti-Asian Campaign
More from Nationalist review:
Earlier today, the New Black Panthers targeted an Asian-owned restaurant in Washington D.C. to dole out a bit of retribution. Citing the expulsion of Africans in China, the group blockaded the local Chinese restaurant and while members in the background hoisted a Pan-African flag, one member on a loudspeaker began issuing his proclamation.
“Harm to black people in Africa, can bring harm to Chinese interests in America…And it can have serious repercussions. And so today, we have started our international economic sanctions campaign. The nerve of these bastards. They start the damn virus, then blame the black man. It has killed 50,000 black people, alone, in the last two months. The Wuhan Virus. And then they’ll jump on the black man in China, and blame the black man. They’ve kicked the black man, by the tens of thousands, into the streets of China. It’s the Chinese or the Korean or anybody else, sucking our blood. I say they are the bloodsuckers of the Black Nation.”
The group promises protests in the following locations: North Carolina, Atlanta, Michigan, Milwaukee and Madison, Houston, Louisville, London (UK).
“We not stupid. We not dumb. We very, very educated. Happy birthday to Malcolm X.”
A journalist with Mother Jones was passing by when she noticed the commotion and was first to report the incident to her Twitter followers. At the time, she was not sure exactly why they were protesting the DC restaurant, but the group made that information clear in a press release and news conference.
According to the demonstrators, today is just the start of a long campaign that will be carried out from city to city across America. Whether such a campaign will ever come to pass remains to be seen. But the entire video is absolutely hilarious and we highly recommend you give it a listen.
“International Economic Sanctions”
According to a press release from the group, they assembled today in order to “announce national and international economic sanctions and a boycott campaign against Chinese businesses in America, and Africa, suffering from vicious human rights violations.”
A formal presentation was delivered to the Chinese embassy in DC, which the group says will “serve the process of formal diplomatic notices upon the Chinese Government on behalf of two-billion Africans worldwide and fifty-million Blacks inside the United States.”
A promise of future protests in 20 cities across America…
“Several National Black groups and activists will take to street action in 20 cities. Live demonstrations will take place at local Chinese business outlets that are open during the pandemic. These demonstrations are designed to shut these businesses down and send a message to China that Harm to Africans in China can bring Harm to Chinese in America, Africa, and worldwide,” the press release reads.
The group did not seem particularly interested in verifying whether businesses were owned by Chinese Americans or Chinese immigrants—and they are going to be targeting restaurants, beauty salons, and any business they can paint as Asian-owned.
