Rapper T.I. Is Calling For A Blackout July 7th

In response to the police killing George Floyd on Monday May 25, 2020, rapper T.I. is calling for a #BlackOutDay2020 on July 7th.

We, as people of color, need to realize the power we hold. Individually, we are considered a minority, but there is truly power in numbers. Once we can realize that and come together… we will truly begin to build, and things will change. We have to hit “them” where it hurts, and sad to say, their pockets is the best, most effective way! Nobody wants to lose money.

George Floyd was a 46-year-old black man, who we all watched get killed by a racist police officer in Minneapolis! The white officer pinned him down with his knee on his neck (after he had already been handcuffed) and choked him out.

George Floyd, the father of two, was killed because of an alleged counterfeit bill! His last words we saying how his neck hurts, his stomach hurts… everything hurts! I don’t know about you guys, but I am tired of seeing black men die… over and over again, and nothing is happening to the officers. Okay, yes he was fired… but charges need to be filed ASAP!!!

  1. Calling for a blackout after the protesters went to the policeman house, took a piece of chalk wrote … MURDERER…. on his sidewalk in front of his house and ran ….. This protest is fake outrage.

  2. I AM A 61-YEAR-OLD WHITE MAN THAT LIVES BY THE PRINCIPLES LAID DOWN BY DR KING AND BOB MARLEY.

    YOU CAN COUNT ME IN!

    I CAN NOT DO MUCH BUT WHAT LITTLE I CAN DO WILL BE DONE!

  3. We don’t just need a blackout day! We need a blackout list! If you allow racism & these killings to perpetuate in your city, begin putting businesses in the city on the blackout list! The majority must fight for & with the minority for change.A One day blackout, then spending what you failed to spend the day before, won’t lead to lasting change. But, We can come for your businesses in every city & our list grows as the racism grows!

  4. Federal Legislation changing the way police use force is priority 1. Retraining & legislating new police training techniques requiring them to take cover & negotiate to reach a non violent out come prior to using physical force or gun fire is needed. When deadly force is used it should be used to disarm not to kill. The norm of using deadly force 1st has to changed. Too many people are being murdered. The current standard of police fearing for their life as the standard reason for using deadly force must be dismantled. The code of blue must me dismantled also. The nature of the job of police officer dedicated danger. It is nature of the job along with many other skillsets, such as Fire Fighters; Probation Officers & Correction Officers & mss as you other face danger but don’t have the right to kill. Police Officers fearing for their life is the standard that determines the use of deadly force or, in the alternative, that they thought there was a weapon present. Both rationals simply give the police a license to kill and that must stop. 12 yr old Tamara Rice was shot & killed because he had a toy gun. If, police were required to take cover & negotiate prior to using deadly force they would have learned that Tamara Rice was a child & that he had a toy gun prior to murdering him. This is very wrong and unacceptable. The standard of fearing for their life & the presence of a weapon must be changed. The injustice of murdering unarmed Black people has been documented since in, or about 1992 when an old woman named Elenors Bumpurs was gunned down by police during a housing eviction because she held a knife. Anybody knows a knife is not equal to a gun. The absence of humanity or empathy of officers when engaging citizens that they are sworn to serve & protect must stop. We the people must stop it through legislation. Federal Legislation is needed to change laws governing the rules of police engagement regardless of police forces being state agencies. Schools are state agency that adhere to federal guidelines similarly, police department must be restructured under federal guidelines. A national petition demanding new legislation could be a starting point. In addition, everyone must vote in the up coming elections, not just in the November election but the Senate races are equally as important.
    Revenge is God’s he will repay. Changing the laws is the responsibility of “We the People’. God is not going to do for us what we can do for ourselves but, if we take 1 step, God will take 2 steps.
    God is with us & that it is more than the whole world against us when we stand for justice & stand against evil & oppression the heavenly host wages war with us & for us.

    1. Something has to be done
      This 2020 not 1965. What is really going on where does it end.? I am willing and and able to do all things according to the will and strength of Gdfod He didn’t create us to be abuse

    2. Its about the dollar, he’s protecting big companies. I too said lets do this the 1st thru 5th and start with Walmart and Amazon. But who am I certainly not a TI.

  7. I’m definitely with this movement TIP and I will be spreading the word also!! Thanks King for always standing with us!!

  8. Please wake up people the FULL ARMER OF GOD WAS CREATED FOR WAR!!! How dear you standby and watch a WHITE choward snap a black man’s neck; in your faces!!! I’m more ANGRY🤬 at the so called men and woman who stood their and DID NOTHING!!! YOU’LL ARE PUNK B%TCHES… and WHY are we waiting for other White people to exact Justice for brown people?!?!
    #whenwillwefightback
    #eye4eye
    #humanjustice
    #wearenottheminority
    #hittherepockets

  9. Thanks ever so much for your support T.I this shit needs to end we all have the same dam blood.

  10. How about a COMPLETE black out? The whites are used to our protests and anger. They actually find it comical and they are pretty much immune to it. We need to have a complete black out for 6 months. But of course we are not organized enough or disciplined enough to carry on that long. Gotta get our nails and fucked up looking weaves done. I would love to see negros behave in a unified, disciplined manner to cripple the economy to the point where they are begging us to return and will put an end to this nonsense. We need to cripple them to the point where they are handing out the reparations that are long over due. . . . .

  11. Ti your my hero from auntie Kim may the force be with you make me feel like theres hope you heard me I’m crying tears of joy thank you I no now yall do listen

  12. I’m and old white lady and I don’t know if this idea will really work, but you can count me in.

  13. I agree. I believe that we should take it a step further, which will keep the awareness going. After the Blackout, we must do business with ourselves. America has to feel that pain that we feel. We must unite from here on out. Just a thought.

  14. Let’s blackout all the way , only by black owned businesses and take a stand against all opposing power that be , stay black and true

  15. Why wait??? Why not immediately? They didn’t wait in either of the cases. Waiting just gives them time to prepare.

  16. Please everyone be a participant in the July 7, 2020 blackout. This is just the beginning. Let’s start showing the world that we CAN and WILL stick together and yes, let’s hit them where they can feel it (in their greedy pockets). We need to boycott their TV shows, movies and much more. I hope this is the time that blacks realize if we don’t begin standing up together, we will continue this ride forever, and leave our children to continue in this insanity. It’s not going to change unless WE change it and the only way to change it is by sticking together. Let’s stop killing each other. They sit back and just laugh at us because we are killing each other more than they are. WAKE UP PEOPLE – IT IS TIME!!

  17. Will participate and encourage.i have 9 great grand sons 26-40 1son they will participate no doubt.

  18. Real lasting change will not happen by only energizing people of color!
    You won’t need all of the White people to support this but you will need around at least 1/2 Then the rest of the white folks will be the minority!

  19. Getting people whom have made some changes regarding this would be great!

    One man comes to mind! Former NFL star Doug Baldwin, who helped change the laws in WA!

  20. What/who is the enemy? Is the enemy race? Religion? Gender? Wealth? Government?

    What is the primary motivating factor? Is it hate? Love? Frustration? Sorrow?

    What is the end goal? To punish? Reward? Revenge? Divide? Unite?

    What do we have the ability to change? Human nature? Laws?

    George Floyd’s incomprehensible slaughter has had a greater impact on America than all the money in the world can buy. Not since Emmett Till’s murder have Americans been as united.

    Do not allow hatred, anger, and revenge drive a movement whose true catalyst is justice, humanity, and love for one another.

    Whatever actions are chosen, remamber that all decent Americans are with you…united.

    Floyd, just like Till, has become a symbol for change. Let this change honor the man whose death has the potential to change our nation by inspiring us to be a better people.

  21. How do you know he was racist? That’s always the first card thrown out. Maybe he’s just a pics of shit cop that thinks he’s above the law. Nobody polices the pplice! Stop throwing your race card first thing. He probably would have done the same thing to to any person no matter what their “color” is. We’really Americans not colors, at least in my eyes. I was arrested once and they did the same thing to me and I’m a white male. But playing my “white privalage card” never crossed my mind, they were just bad cop’s!!!

  22. I’m Down….. That’s So Sad ,,It really Hurt To see this…😢😢 Enough is enough 👌💯💖💖😡😡

  23. For all of you saying why not a week or why not a month etc.. none of your can go that long without spending a dollar so hush that nonsense up. Most people have kids they have to feed and bills they have to pay. They have to go to work so they need gas, food etc..not one person can go without spending a dollar for a week unless they’re sitting in there mom’s basement mooching off the parents. TI says a day because even he knows he nor anyone in his house can go a week or month without spending a dollar.
