Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “Louisville, KY: Cuban Community Rallies In Support Of Cuban Restaurant After BLM Issues "List of Demands"”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
The restaurant owner was allegedly told he “better put the letter on the door so your business is not f*cked with”
A rather alarming situation is developing in Louisville, Kentucky, in which local businesses are allegedly being issued demands from Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists and told that if they don’t meet the demands, their business might be “f*cked with.”
The demands are onerous, invasive, and ludicrous. They include everything from hiring quotas to training mandates to displaying a letter supporting reparations for black people to—perhaps most outrageous of all—paying a “recurring monthly donation of 1.5% of net sales to a local Black nonprofit or organization.”
While some area businesses have reportedly caved to the bullying demands, Fernando Martinez, a partner in a restaurant group, referred to the demands and alleged threats if he failed to comply as “mafia tactics.”
Fernando Martinez, a partner of the Olé Restaurant Group, was one of dozens of business owners in the downtown Louisville district who recently received a letter from protesters laying out demands that aim to improve diversity in the area, which is known for its locally-owned shops and restaurants.

#BLM nonsense. Where’s the logic in demanding “diversity”, from a minority owned business? This is called authoritarianism.
