McKesson's Communistic leanings are evident in such Marxist drivel as "To not give is to steal from the poor," and "Private property is only an accommodation to sin" (whatever the thunder that means). And his solid founding in Black racism can be seen in such statements as, "You made me destroy this property to be seen."
McKesson's fevered brain imagines a "connection between Capitalism and racism." One wonders what connection he could possibly be referring to – until he reveals his twisted logic thusly:
"In fact, anti-black racism remains the foundational organizing principle of this country. That is because this country is built on the right to property, and there is no property, no wealth in the USA without the exploitation, appropriation, murder, and enslavement of black people …"
Yeah Right, McKesson. Wealth producers (including such notable Black examples as Herman Cain, Tristan Walker, and Sean Combs) create wealth for one reason and one reason only – to exploit Black people. And, oh yeah. White people don't buy houses to raise their kids in – they buy them to enslave Black people.
It's clear that McKesson's view of the world is horribly skewed by the intellectual poison of Black racism. He views everything through the distorting lens of imagined Black victimhood. This false perception allows him to justify looting as a Black right.
"But why is it bad," he asks," to grab an opportunity to improve well-being, to make life better, easier, or more comfortable? ... Only if you believe that having nice things for free is amoral, if you believe, in short, that the current (white-supremacist, settler-colonialist) regime of property is just, can you believe that looting is amoral in itself."
And again, "When rioters take territory and loot, they are revealing precisely how, in a space without cops, property relations can be destroyed and things can be had for free …"
Mr. McKesson seems to be of the opinion that stealing is equivalent to federal handouts – just another instance of "something for free." I hate to disillusion you, DeRay, but nothing is free. The stock in that convenience store was bought and paid for by the owner. And to justify theft by suggesting that, " looters are only stealing from the rich owners’ profit margins," is tantamount to saying, "Welfare is just stealing from White taxpayers' children's college funds."
Mr. McKesson goes on to paint the looter as a hard working entrepreneur. "White people deploy the idea of looting in a way that implies people of color are greedy and lazy, but it is just the opposite: looting is a hard-won and dangerous act with potentially terrible consequences."
That last bit about "terrible consequences" is the only sensible thing McKesson said. I should like to invite Mr. McKesson to come on down here to Texas and try his Saul Alinsky tactics, and he'll find out just how terrible the consequences can be.
