Seattle BLM takes over Trader Joe's,
protesting 'lack of access to grocery stores'

Original Article

(Tweet) Morning March Seattle, which advocates to abolish the police and invest in black communities, organised the gathering at the local grocery store to educate customers on the barriers black residents face such as gentrification. This comes as leftists conflate Trader Joe's and gentrification, according to The Atlantic in a 2019 article on the "conflicts between white Portlanders and long-time black residents" over "widening bicycle lanes" and "the construction of a new Trader Joe’s."

I wonder if this is their plan for election day. Block the polling sites so you can't vote.

Why would a grocery store chain or individual owned grocery store set up in area that will routinely get robbed or burned out? BLM it isn’t access to grocery stores- it is your thuggish behavior.. Exactly what solutions do these criminals propose? They are behaving and sounding like the terrorists in Middle East demanding Israel give land- but never offer how they would run things.

While burning and looting a sport store is inconvient (illegal and wrong but those words are not in their vocabulary) it doesn't really affect that suburban dweller. But interferring with our food supply - now that is a biggie. Evil walks among us.

The Target in the black neighborhood in Portland (?) was looted and burned. The store will not be reopened as it ran at a loss due to theft and non-sale of high margin items. Gee, must be racism why stores aren’t in bad neighborhoods!

This is about on par with the Menendez brothers who murdered their parents and then begged for mercy from the courts because they were orphans. Steal, loot, burn, trash your local supermarket and then complain that you don’t have access to one. You did it to yourselves. Tough shiite.

I got an idea, instead of looting and burning, why not go get a loan and open a grocery store? I guess your just to damn used to everyone else providing stuff for free to you. Blacks should practice gratitude and build from their.

I have seen grocery stores open in 'up and coming neighborhoods' several times, only to quietly shut down a few years later. It only works if you want to lose money.

Apparently, all this will end if we just absolve bLACKS from any criminal prosecution, no matter what the crime. Also, everything needed to live, like food, medicine, liquor, phones, Nikes and big screen TV's must be supplied free of charge. And they can't be expected to work, because that's too 'whitey!' All this will be reparations for the slavery they never experienced.

Eating while shopping is a common practice among certain sub cultures. I have seen large young women in grocery stores, little kids in the cart, wheeling around the store, eating fresh fruit, candy bars, cereal out of the box,drinking milk out of the carton, or soda,, and not paying at the register. If challenged, they cry racism. the profit margin in grocery stores is low - eating while shopping, plus shoplifting, together, kill off the stores. Heal yourselves, black people. enough.

Most everything has been burned by BLM and Antifa and now they lack grocery stores? I would bet they are too stupid to even see the connection. Just like children who kill their parents and want sympathy because they are orphans.

I agree with #9. There are certain blacks that are warped in their thinking. With those they run into a wall and they don't look for a way around (over, under) it the just throw a fit of criminal behavior to get what they think they could never obtain. Knowing themselves the way they do they realize they will never get what they want so why try, and it is always someone else as the reason for their failure, that's their culture. It comes on them early. In school they don't try and so don't achieve. Basically cowards, they are afraid to try because they may fail. It begets their loser culture. They are the enemy that they seek to abolish and so it never ends. And our society won't confront them. One heck of a mess.

Remember Michelle Obama's lectures on 'food deserts'. There's a reason, grocery stores get robbed, shop lifting and operate at a constant loss. When riots start all the fast food chains, Target and sporting goods stores along with others leave never to come back. That creates the desert where blacks have to travel many miles away for essential everyday needs because they looted and burned everything close by. I don't feel sorry for them it's a plight they created for themselves. The circle will never be broken because they are stupid and don't want to fit into society this is a good example.

Chances are before long we will be hearing from the leftist Democrat supported Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement that President Trump is to blame for so-called “Food Deserts” in the Black “communities” where drug and grocery stores were burned down and looted by mostly all Black rioters.

Now let's see. BLM says they want access to local grocery store. So they take over a local grocery store effectively driving it out of business. Is it any wonder they don't have access to local grocery stores if they force them into bankruptcy? Next they will say that they have a right to loot stores because stores should be giving them stuff for free.

Why haven’t these people been put under siege yet? They want to declare their own zone? Fine, but let the National Gaurd define their borders and then let all who want out to come out but no one else in. Let them burn/trash/destroy everything within their borders but let no utilities in, let no supplies in. Let them be treated as a hostile country until they send a representative to bargain, then nail them for terms of surrender.

Somebody tell BLM the reason there are so few grocery stores in black communities is because the residents rob them and burn them to the ground. They cannot stay in business. Somebody tell BLM that most of the problems faced by the black community are SELF INFLICTED. The problems in the black community are the same problems faced in other communities. The difference is other communities step up to the plate, and take personal responsibility and resolve their problems.

I recall Trader Joe's trying to open a store in a 'disadvantaged' neighborhood a year or two ago. They were met with protests by the residents who did not want to see their neighborhood, in their words, 'gentrified'. So Trader Joe's did not open a store there. So, the leftists have a self-fulfilling situation where Trader Joe's can't win and the leftists always, in their own eyes, win. Open a store there and get accused of the terrible crime of 'gentrification', or stay out of a neighborhood that doesn't want you and be called racist for doing so. The left is truly insane.

The problem of doing retail in some communities is "shrinkage". Shoplifting (looting on a smaller, personal scale) to those in Rio Linda. I live between two communities of different economic status. In one grocery the aisles are open, in the other there are sections (cosmetics and beauty aids) nicely walled off so shoppers have to pass in and out through a counter with overhead cameras. Grocery stores work, at best, on a 3% margin. Shoplifting will drive a grocery out pretty darn fast. Unfortunately some stores have a policy of letting some of their custormers shoplift without being stopped. Others, who are presumed to be "privileged", get stopped.

So I have a TJs 2 minutes from my house. I do love their reasonably priced cheeses and wine, and their frozen gluten free pancakes are the BEST (I have to eat GF, sorry!). Today I went to get some birthday cards and a sympathy card (.99 cents, can’t beat it). I bought 2 cans of pumpkin since my mom told me it’s in short supply. After going to 2 other stores, I went back to TJs for more canned pumpkin. Guy at the door says “pull up your mask to cover your nose”...um, it was covering my nose, jerk weed. And, I had just joked about with him 30 minutes earlier on my first trip there. Had I not needed the extra canned pumpkin for my elderly mom (so she can bake pie this Thanksgiving), I would have told him to naff off. 50 years old and working min. wage grocery job, dude, seriously. Give them a little power...grrrrr

I believe the gangs burning and looting are for the most part rich white brats. Look at the news stories. BLM and antifa seem to have a lot of white brats doing their bidding. Most of them are from "out of town," don't live in their choice of city to loot. burn and murder. Someone is paying them for their services. As for blacks, can't lump them as rioters/arsonists thugs. I believe they struggle. Who gave them the victim attitude in the first place? The democrat party.

If Mark Kelly, the Democratic nominee for Senate in Arizona, unseats Senator Martha McSally, a Republican who was appointed to her seat and began serving last year, he could be sworn in as early as Nov. 30 — possibly in time to vote on a new Supreme Court nominee, elections experts said. Hypothetically, that would narrow the Republicans’ 53-to-47 majority in the upper chamber, which may become relevant if a vote on a replacement for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was delayed until a lame-duck session after the election.

The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg opens a complex partisan chessboard, with competing political calculations affecting the timeline of decision points by President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). A key decision is whether Trump and McConnell should push to get a nominee approved by the Senate prior to the Nov. 3 presidential election, a move that could serve as a polarizing catalyst to motivate both Democratic and Republican party bases. Polls show Trump has long maintained a strong edge over rival candidate Joe Biden in party enthusiasm, with thousands of Trump supporters lining up to attend lively rallies at airports,

Joe Biden, as part of his campaign to revive the Obama years and be the anti-President Trump, has repeatedly vowed to bring back one of the least popular policies of the prior administration: the individual mandate. The requirement forcing individuals to purchase health insurance under the threat of a penalty was already the subject of one high-stakes Supreme Court case. It is about to be at the center of another. But in practice, it has proven to be completely ineffective. When Obamacare was first being debated, most healthcare experts believed it was necessary to include a requirement to purchase insurance, so as to corral young and healthy individuals into the insurance market

On Sept. 16 the editorial board of the New York Times did the impossible. It said something nice about President Trump. "The normalization of relations between Israel and two Arab states, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, is, on the face of it, a good and beneficial development," the editors wrote. They even went so far as to say that the "Trump administration deserves credit for brokering it." I had to read that sentence twice to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Perhaps the world really is ending. Or perhaps the Times cannot avoid the reality that the "Abraham Accords" between Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain are a historic achievement.

But the coronavirus is now raging across the continent, and the WHO is warning of “alarming rates” of infection.

Former Obama-Biden Secretary of State John Kerry, now a surrogate for Biden, managed to accidentally prophesy how Donald Trump would accomplish the impossible in the Middle East — get Arab nations to sign a separate peace with Israel without dealing with the Palestinians.

Roberts Jr. said in a statement. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.” The development will give President Trump the opportunity to name her replacement, and Senate Republicans have promised to try to fill the vacancy even in the waning days of his first term.

Republicans are not likely to heed her wish. Days before her passing Friday, Justice Ginsburg dictated a statement to her granddaughter, Clara Spera, asking that the seat remain vacant into the new year, according to NPR: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural, and feminist icon has died.

Her death will inevitably set in motion what promises to be a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her, and it thrusts the Supreme Court vacancy into the spotlight of the presidential campaign.

When Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday evening, she did so with a message for posterity which, for all the history that Ginsburg might have made as a woman on the Supreme Court, was pristine in its self-description of her time on the Court. “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” she said. The arrogance of that was par for Ginsburg’s course. Yes, yes, Ruth Bader Ginsburg lived an interesting life, and yes, yes, she was an accomplished woman. Those things are beside the point. It is neither ghoulish nor inappropriate to look to the future of the United States Supreme Court
