Black Lives Matter organizer Ariel Atkins thinks it’s completely justifiable for someone to loot businesses, no matter if it’s Gucci, Macy’s or Nike stores, because such an action “makes sure that person eats” and is a way to get paid “reparations.”

Atkins made the suggestion while speaking at a rally that was organized by Black Lives Matter Chicago and was held at a police station in the South Loop where some individuals who got caught looting in Chicago are likely being held, according to Fox News.

“I don’t care if somebody decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats. That makes sure that person has clothes,” Atkins declared. “That makes sure that person can make some kind of money because the city obviously doesn’t care about them.”

“Not only that, that’s reparations,” she added.

The remarks by Atkins are strikingly similar to those of Democrat-Socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who just weeks ago suggested that the spike in crime in New York City could be the result of people who don’t have money to “pay their rent” or to “feed their children,” and so they feel the need to “shoplift some bread” to make ends meet.
