Target has re-opened its looted Minneapolis store that was completely ransacked during the George Floyd riots over 5 months ago with the goal of catering more to black shoppers and being less “racist.”

Yes, really.

According to a Bloomberg report, there is now a new “mural” at the entrance of the store and it has been completely remodeled by a contracting company owned by a Somali-American woman in order to make it more welcoming for black people.

The store will also stock more products made by black-owned brands.

In August, Target’s new “racial justice committee” outlined the goal of responding to its stores being looted (predominantly by black criminals), by tackling its reputation of appealing primarily to white shoppers.

One of those committee members, Stephanie Creary, assistant professor of management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, said Target’s mission was to “reduce the impact of racism that is created from its operations.”

Chief external engagement officer Laysha Ward said the new ethos would be implemented across the country in the construction of new Target stores and the remodeling of existing ones.

“We’re really thinking about this relevant experience that is overtly Black and reflecting overtly Black needs and culture,” said Ward.

According to the report, white residents in the local area previously avoided using the store, preferring instead to drive to another branch further away, and referred to it as “Tar-ghetto.”

Crucially, the store has also added shutters in case of “emergencies,” meaning in case the local diverse community decides to loot it again.

“Summer 2021 is Going to be Abnormally Violent” as Murders Continue to Rise

It’s going to be like 2020, maybe worse.

Summer 2021 is shaping up to be “abnormally violent” according to one expert, as data shows murders continue to rise in major American cities and the threat of more riots looms large.

According to John Roman, a senior fellow at the economics, justice and society group at NORC at the University of Chicago, the disruption of routine activities thanks to COVID lockdowns and the further loss of faith in the police will lead to more violent disorder.

“Summer 2021 is going to be abnormally violent. And summer 2022 as well. It is the new normal,” writes Roman.

He sees 2021 being a continuation of 2020, which in addition to endless riots saw a continued rise in homicides in numerous cities across the country.

“A sample of 37 cities with data available for the first three months of 2021 collected by the crime analyst Jeff Asher indicates murders are up 18% over the same period in 2020,” reports Axios.

“The continued increase comes after a year in which major U.S. cities experienced a 33% rise in homicides, and 63 of the 66 largest police jurisdictions saw an increase in at least one category of violent crime, according to a report from the Major Cities Chiefs Association.”

One of the main reasons homicides are soaring is due to what used to be called ‘The Ferguson Effect’ and what is now euphemistically called “resourcing issues.”

In other words, cops are loathe to go into high crime areas and get engaged in violent confrontations with criminals because they know that if they resort to violence, no matter how justified, their lives could be ruined after the fact by social media mobs and rigged jury trials.

Data shows that murders had sunk to a modern-day low in 2014 but began to rise again in the years following the Michael Brown riots in Ferguson and other cities.

“Criminologists still haven’t settled on a single explanation for why violent crime dropped drastically from the 1990s, and they’re even less certain why it’s risen so dramatically over the past 16 months,” reports Axios.

However, the reason for why violent crime dropped drastically in the 90’s is acknowledged later in the article, specifically – “mass incarcerations.”

In the post-George Floyd era, police are not only reluctant to arrest violent criminals, they’re questioning why they should even risk getting near them in the first place.

“A violent summer on America’s streets appears likely, given that homicide already appears to be trending above last year’s spike,” concludes Axios.

‘Loot For Justice’: BLM Agitators Target Stores in California

Police response heads off planned crime spree.

Published

BLM agitators tried to organize a ‘loot for justice’ event by targeting a shopping mall in California, prompting a police response.

The planned looting was a response to the police killing of Ma’Khia Bryant, who was shot dead by a cop in Columbus, Ohio after she tried to stab two other people.

Leftists have lied about the incident in an effort to create another George Floyd moment, when in reality the responding officer literally saved the lives of two African-American women.

Seeking an opportunity to exploit the incident for more rampant criminality, BLM extremists tried to organize a “loot until justice is served” shopping spree last night at the Bayfair Center shopping mall near Oakland.

The same mall was targeted in May 2020 during the George Floyd riots.

Messages were posted to Instagram encouraging people to “follow the crowd” as they targeted multiple stores in the area.

Unfortunately for the looters, the San Leandro Police Department were alerted to the issue and reacted quickly by stationing officers around the planned targets.

“The San Leandro Police Department has received reports of planned looting at Bayfair Center tonight. In response, we have brought in additional officers to reinforce patrol and will have a heavy presence at that location,” said a statement.

“The City of San Leandro and the San Leandro Police Department respects the rights of people to peacefully protest, but the information we have is that criminal activity is being planned. That information is based on statements made by known actors associated with other recent acts of looting and vandalism. Therefore, we are not taking this matter lightly and are preparing for it.”

Since last year’s riots, the media has repeatedly insisted that looting is a justified response to allegations of police brutality, despite most of the looters clearly being criminal opportunist thugs who don’t care about justice and merely want to get their hands on a pair of new Nike Air.

Earlier this month, Footlocker stores in Minnesota were looted and trashed once again despite the company having donated $200 million dollars to Black Lives Matter causes in the past year.

Antifa Celebrates Chauvin Verdict by Smashing Up Starbucks, Punching Police

Guilty verdict didn’t stop more rioting.

Antifa extremists in Portland celebrated the guilty conviction of Derek Chauvin by smashing up Starbucks and punching a police officer in yet another night of chaos.

More bedlam unfolded on the streets of America’s most “progressive” city following the news that Chauvin had been found guilty on all counts in the George Floyd case.

Within hours of the verdict, crowds gathered near the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse and Multnomah County Justice Center and began spray painting the building.

They subsequently smashed up a Starbucks as police declared an unlawful assembly.

Another video shows a militant leftist straight up punching a police officer in the face before he is pounced on by other cops.

According to police, two people were arrested during the riot.

Oregon Live quoted a protester who said she showed up to “pay homage to what happened today.”

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had previously declared a 24 hour state of emergency and placed the National Guard on standby in anticipation of mass unrest in the event that Chauvin wasn’t found guilty on all charges.

However, despite the fact that he was convicted and Antifa got what they wanted, they decided to trash the city anyway.
