Fashion Brand That Vehemently Supported Black Lives Matter Faces Slave Labor Scandal

Fashion brand Boohoo, which vehemently expressed its support for Black Lives Matter in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, is now embroiled in a slave labor scandal.

US Customs and Border Protection has seen enough enough to launch an investigation into the company after campaign group Liberty Shared exposed how the company “is not doing enough to stop forced labour in the Leicester factories which make many of its clothes,” reports Sky News.

“The evidence of Boohoo and forced labour is quite compelling. I think it will be a wake-up call for British institutions about how they’re handling modern slavery enforced labour, particularly in a community like Leicester East,” said Duncan Jepson.

A report last year by lawyer Alison Levitt QC found that the allegations against the company, which centered around illegally low wages and poor working conditions, were “substantially true.” Employees were also made to work through lockdown, potentially exposing them to COVID-19.

Any potential US ban would cost the company more than a fifth of the company’s total revenue.

The scandal is particularly ironic because Boohoo was one of the numerous corporations that vehemently virtue signaled in support of BLM during last summer’s riots, with the company posting a black square on social media for “Blackout Tuesday while asserting, “we are listening.”

“We are louder together. Say his name. #GeorgeFloyd #BlackLivesMatter,” Boohoo also told its followers on Instagram.

In another post, the company stated, “We are committed to use our influence as a brand and community to help your voices be heard.”

“At Boohoo we will no longer just be doing our thing,” the company said. “We will be doing better. We see you, we hear you and we, throughout all of this and beyond will stand with you.”

Boohoo also encouraged its customers to specifically support black-owned businesses.

As we previously highlighted, several other major transnational corporations like Nike, Coca-Cola and Apple, all of which strongly supported Black Lives Matter, lobbied against a US ban on imports of products produced by Chinese slave labor.

But they all posted the black square, so I guess that’s what really matters.

Video: Professor Charges UCLA Suspended Him To “Rehabilitate Their Own (Racist) Image”

After he refused to grade black students more leniently

A professor who claims he was suspended for refusing to grade black students more leniently has charged that UCLA sidelined him in an effort to offset its own “horrible reputation for racism.”

As we reported last year, Accounting lecturer Gordon Klein was placed on leave after he rejected requests to allow black students to take final exams at a later date as a response to the death of George Floyd and black lives matter protests.

Klein, who had worked at UCLA for 39 years, responded at the time by noting “Remember that MLK famously said that people should not be evaluated based on the ‘color of their skin.'”

The professor later brought a lawsuit against the university, which is ongoing.

Appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show Monday, Klein described UCLA’s actions as a “publicity stunt,” noting “They decided they’ve got a horrible reputation for racism, bias, and instability within the school of management where I teach, and so they decided that they’d make an example out of me to rehabilitate their own reputation.”

Klein says he has a “100 percent change of prevailing” in the lawsuit so long as he gets a fair trial, adding “The irony is they hired me to teach law and ethics to students and guess what? I’m now going to teach them a lesson in law and ethics.”

Klein noted that “it’s in the rulebook, grade people based on merit, it’s in the rulebook, never discriminate. I’ve lived my life never discriminating,” adding “I was grotesquely offended by the condescending nature,” of the request to grade black students more leniently.

“It’s bizarre,” Klein continued, adding “you almost have to say it several times. They called me a racist because I quoted martin Luther king in support of a color-blind society.”

Watch:

Klein’s case is not an isolated one. There were several reports from elsewhere in the country last year of black students demanding they be given leniency or just better grades at the height of the black lives matter protests.

There are also countless cases of so called Critical Race Theory, and BLM influenced stances taking over college and university syllabuses, with anyone opposed in the firing line.

    Poll Finds That More White Than Black People Want Police Abolished In Minneapolis

    51 percent of white voters support replacing the Minneapolis Police Department, while only 42 percent of black voters support the measure.

    The narrative that black people are driving the ‘abolish the police’ calls, specifically in Minneapolis, has been again disproven as a survey found that way more white people support the move than black people do.

    KARE 11 reports that a poll found that 51 percent of white voters support replacing the Minneapolis Police Department with a new Department of Public Safety, while only 42 percent of black voters support the measure.

    In addition, 75 percent of black voters believe the police force should not be reduced in size, compared to 51 percent of white voters.

    The news agency also reported that “More white voters support reducing the size of the force than Black voters, but there wasn’t a majority among either demographic, 33% compared to 14%.”

    The survey was carried out by The Star Tribune, MPR News, KARE 11 and FRONTLINE.

    Predictably when split along political affiliation, the results are stark with 55% of Democratic voters saying they support total replacement of the police force, yet only 7% of Republicans being on board with that.

    Last week, extreme leftist representative Ilhan Omar fumed about the measure to replace the police in Minneapolis being blocked by a court.

    “This ballot measure should be on the ballot,” Omar declared, adding “As you can tell, I’m pretty upset about it,” and charging that “The leaders who are opposed to progress in this city are not nameless or faceless.”

    Omar added, “There’s a judge, there’s a mayor, there’s a police chief, and their monied friends who are telling us we can’t have a city that is flexible to our needs and our demands. How else are we supposed to make progress if we can’t do that?”

    General Milley Downplayed BLM Riots to Prevent Trump From Invoking Insurrection Act

    Claimed they were mainly centered around the use of “spray paint.”

    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, tried to downplay the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots in an effort to prevent Donald Trump from invoking the Insurrection Act, arguing that they were mainly centered around the use of “spray paint.”

    That’s according to the new book, ‘Peril’, written by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.

    Despite the violent demonstrations quickly spreading across the country, Milley continued to insist that they had only impacted two cities and were relatively sedate, echoing CNN’s ludicrous “fiery, but most peaceful” description of the riots.

    “They used spray paint, Mr President, that’s not an insurrection. […] We’re a country of 330 million people. You’ve got these penny packet protests,” Milley allegedly told Trump.

    Milley apparently told Trump that most of the riots only involved around 300 people and that they paled in significance to the 1968 Washington riots caused by the assassination of MLK and the Battle of Fort Sumter in 1861, which started the Civil War.

    The riots took mere days to spread to virtually every major city in the country, with looting, arson and violent attacks becoming commonplace, eventually causing around $2 billion dollars in property damage as well as at least 19 deaths and over 17,000 arrests.

    At one point, demonstrators took over an entire area of downtown Seattle, completely obliterating official law and order for a number of weeks.

    Trump’s failure to act strongly and decisively led to him looking weak, derailing a lot of momentum he would have had going into the election.

    According to other reports, Trump wanted to invoke the Insurrection Act and put Milley in charge of National Guard troops to end the unrest, leading the two to have a shouting match where Milley refused to take charge.

    Back in June, Milley appeared to side with the kind of ‘woke’ rhetoric spewed by far-left groups like BLM when he told the House Armed Services Committee that he was concerned about “white rage” in the United States.

    As we highlighted earlier this week, Milley was also accused of treason by Trump after it emerged that he had promised to warn China ahead of any military operations.

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson labeled the revelation, “One of the scariest things that has ever happened in this country.”
