Black Lives Matter’s List ‘Requesting’ White People Give Away Their Homes, Money, And More

Black Lives Matter leader, Chanelle Helm, wrote a list of "resquests" that white people give their homes and money to people of color.

Black Lives Matter leader, Chanelle Helm, wrote a list of “resquests” that white people give their homes and money to people of color.

Chanelle Helm Says She’s Received Death Threats Over Her List

The co-founder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville released a wish list that included asking white people to get their bosses fired and that they should give their homes and money away to black and brown people.

Chanelle Helm is co-founder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville and wrote her list of “10 requests” on Aug. 16 in the Leo Weekly in response to the Aug. 12 Charlottesville Unite the Right rally.

Helm wrote that white people who don’t have descendants should put in their will that their property goes to a black or brown family.

She added that if white people inherit property then they should instead give it to black or brown family. The author wrote the white people won’t miss the income. “You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way,” she wrote in the column.

Helm stated that white developers or landlords should build a sustainable housing complex and let black and brown people live in it for free.

She added that white people should give their home to a black or brown family. Helm added that white people should do monthly budgets so they can donate money to black people to buy land.

White people – specifically white people – should get their boss fired, she wrote, “cause they racist, too.”

The “fact-check” website Snopes defended Helm’s list. Snopes’ writer Bethania Palma stated that, “Conservative web sites picked out a partial quote from her list, (‘Give up the home you own’) and put it in headlines mischaracterizing it as a set of demands, like this one from Breitbart: “Black Lives Matter Activist Unveils List of Demands to White People: ‘Give Up the Home You Own.’”

However, the fourth request Helm made in her own op-ed states: “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.”

The Louisville Courier-Journal was also sympathetic to Helm. The daily Louisville newspaper wrote: “Helm, a co-founder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter-Louisville, goes on to make suggestions about restorative justice and reparations” and then listed a few of her “requests.”

The newspaper said Helm received death threats over her requests.

“I didn’t think that right-wing nut jobs would take it and twist and turn my words into whatever they wanted to turn them into,” Helm said.

    This is typical of lazy people, they always expect others to GIVE THEM EVERYTHING…

      What I love is the basis assumption that all white people were slave owners (FACT: more black folks owned slaves in the south than whites and the largest owner of slaves was a black man). Why should people living today give any kind of reparations to people who are simply too lazy to take advantage of the free government programs to lift themselves out of poverty?

            This beast wrote out her list of demands on 8/13/17 and BLM hadn’t even started in 2005. In 2005 we had the equally lunatic Occupy Wall Street losers. BLM got it’s start after Mike “the gentle giant” Brown was shot and killed for attacking and trying to steal and PO’s gun after he assaulted and robbed a store owner. Remember the “hands up don’t shoot” lie that was refuted by a grand jury and Obama’s racist DOJ?

      • Joe Fucile

        Actually the number is “A greater percentage of free black men owned slaves”. That is because the population of free blacks was lower than the population of whites. This being said there were scumbags on both sides of the racial lines that owned slaves but a vast majority of the citizens did not and this reparation shit has got to go away.

        My suggestion would be if you flat out demand reparations we will make sure they are not a descendant of a slave owner (they just get a ticket), give them the equivalent of 40 acres and a mule and a one way ticket to Liberia since they have no standing as American Citizens but rather a descendant of a forcefully relocated African. So we will return them to their homeland, you know, where the descendants of the tribes that sold their ancestors into slavery live. In fact if they head towards the middle east they can get a better idea of what the slave trade was like since they still practice it there.

        • Nicole Turner

          How could they owen slaves if the majority of black people were slaves? How did this discussion turn into about slavery?

          • Joe Fucile

            Perhaps you missed it in school (or they purposely left it out) but there were free blacks in the colonies/country and approximately 20% of them owned slaves. You yourself said “a majority were slaves” that is not all blacks, just a percentage.

            The discussion turned to slavery because it started that way with the BLM leader touting white people give up what they earned to blacks. That is part and parcel to the reparations BS. It ignores that a majority of whites did not own slaves (1.6% at the height of slavery), whites were the ones that fought and died to end the practice in this country, and no one owes anything to anyone who can’t get their collective shit together and continues to make poor life decisions / shows lack of ambition.

    WOW…… I am sick and tired of this BS! White privilege BS as well!! First of all, who brought the slaves to America?? Not white people. Also every race has been a slave through out time. I’m part Irish, we were slaves….but was I born, no! Do I deserve things for free, NO! My mom’s family came here from Italy. They were dirt poor. Worked as many jobs as needed just to get by. They lived in the projects in Queens NY. They NEVER owed their own home. My mother quit school in the 9th grade to work and help pay bills for the family. She raised three girls to be strong, finish school and to do better. So don’t talk to me about privilege! We all worked our a**es off to get to where we are today! Get off your lazy a**, work hard in school and stop expecting everyone to give to you!! THIS is ONE OF THE REASONS TRUMP WON!!

      I suppose you don’t realize the Irish were never slaves, and in America they did eventually get paid reparations. In fact,the Irish slave myth has been debunked for quite some time now.

      Feel free to deny those without checking if I’m right. It will make your statement look even dumber.

      • Jessica Renick

        The Irish had been slaves for a lot longer then black slaves. Pick up a history book. Plus, during the time of American slavery there where twice as many white slaves then there were of black slaves. This was do to the fact that white slaves were cheaper then black slaves. Also most slave owners that were black were known to be more cruel then there white counterparts. Did u know that the first self made woman millionaire was a black woman? Talk to a person who got at least a bachelors in history like i did. It is amazingly eye opening. It has gotten me excited about getting my dna checked.

        • Highest common denominator

          Apparently you think you’re talking to someone who isn’t educated in American history. The Irish were never, ever enslaved in America. Either you know this and are spreading a lie, or you should look into getting your BA in History refunded.

          Also, you probably learned from the same shoddy history course that more blacks owned slaves than whites. First off, that’s dead wrong and I don’t even know how that lie got started. Second off, black “slave owners” were buying their wives, children, and other family members from cruel slave owners.

          This isn’t a widely known fact, but I assumed a historian like yourself would have come across that somewhere in your reading.

          Irish people were not enslaved in America, ever.

          There are many forms of indenture. The Irish were indentured, then became just “white,” like Italians and other European groups.

          Where I would be scared if I were you is that there are some white supremacist groups that are trying to exclude Irish folk from identifying as white. You know, like the old days where they were considered subhuman.

      • kmac

          • Scott Smyth

            You’re right about being overly influenced by news about things that will probably never directly affect us. But I don’t think that that and ‘being out in the real world’ are necessarily mutually exclusive. And I’m only moderately scared…my fear is not that I’m going to walk out of my front door and face any particular dilemma tomorrow – my fear sometimes (and I only speak for myself and generally) is that the particular event that is reported (whatever it happens to be) is part of a trend that will, sooner or later (matter of some years), get to my front door. If I lived in the US, I would be more afraid in the present of some guy on meth who stole a cantaloupe at my front door asking to borrow a spoon. Then who knows what next time. That what my real world friends are dealing with….stuff like that…and it’s not on the news.

            Outrage has roots in fear. I pose the same question, what in your life, aside from 24 hour news or what a politician has said, or bad parental upbringing, leads you to believe something about a group of people you’ve never met, or have done no personal harm to you?

        “You’re so emotional.”

        People tend to get upset when they are not only relentlessly slandered and falsely accused, but when now they are now being DEMANDED to give up their money and possessions to people who have zero right to them.

        Can you tell me why you support blacks demanding money/possessions from white people, to which they have no legal or moral right?

        “Not all whites are racist,”

        All whites ARE now called racists.

        ” but if you’re a racist white, you deserve to be called a racist white.

        And all black racists need to be called racist blacks. Like this woman in the article. right? (Actually, the the term “racist XYZ color” is redundant. Just racist will do.)

We make ends meet through hard work and budgeting and now this fat beast thinks i should give it all to someone else because my skin is a different color than theirs? WOW…disguising filthy and blatant racism as a “cause”. Did anyone actually read her “demands” in her own writing? Its instantly apparent she is not very bright and has little-to-no education. I could barely understand it.

    This is why no one has ever taken BLM seriously. This is why the BLM will always be a joke. This is why Chanell Helm will never amount to anything in her life aside from becoming a well-known racist for a day or two. I hope she enjoys her 15 minutes as the clock is now at 14:59 and soon no one will ever care that an uneducated racist made a list of demands. She will soon be forgotten and will most likely go back to her normal life of spouting unintelligible things on Facebook and remembering the “good times” when thousands of people across the US called her a moronic racist.

They also need to seperate themselves from ignornant protesters and have them kicked out! Then they wouldnt look like so bad! First thing is their leaders DO NOT NEED TO BE LIKE HER OR THAT GUY TOMI LAHREN ALWAYS COMPLAIN ABOUT! Because she just make people that are trying to change the group look bad!

    NAACP was created during the Jim Crow era. NAACP was created to promote equality of rights and to eradicate caste or race prejudice among the citizens of the United States; to advance the interest of colored citizens; to secure for them impartial suffrage; and to increase their opportunities for securing justice in the courts, education for the children, employment according to their ability and complete equality before law. During a time where anybody the wasn’t purely an white American (race wise) had no rights and was thought to be second class citizens.
