Dozens of Black Lives Matter protesters marched through Seattle streets on Friday night demanding white residents give up their homes, with claims that they stole the land from poor black people.
“Give up your house. Give black people back their homes,” the protesters chanted. “What are you going to do about it? Open up your wallets.”
In footage captured by conservative activist Katie Daviscourt, BLM protesters marched through residential neighborhoods late at night.
An unidentified protester said that the white residents were living in a historically black section of the city and demanded they give up their homes.
“Do you know that before your white a** came here this was all black people? Do you know people like you came here and basically bought all the land from the black people for less than what it was worth, kicked them out so you could live here?” the man said, as captioned by Daily Caller. “Do you know that? Cause if you don’t, now you f–king do, now do something about it!”
Another woman on a megaphone is heard shouting at unidentified white residents demanding they vacate their homes.
“Give black people back their homes! You’re sitting there comfortable-comfortable as f–k as if they didn’t help gentrify this neighborhood!” she yelled.
The Seattle Times identifies Seattle as the third most gentrified city in the United States, reporting that the city’s Central District has seen a decrease in the number of black residents. The paper estimates that figures could drop to less than 10% black in the next decade, down from a peak of 73% in 1970.
However, while gentrification displaces poorer residents, those who choose to stay see a rise in the value of their homes and a lower exposure to poverty.
