Black Actor Calls on African-Americans to Boycott Work

In a Tuesday Facebook post, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ actor Isaiah Washington called on blacks to boycott work in protest of recent police shootings. Apparently, he think all of the thugs setting fire to Charlotte have jobs…

Washington’s post read:

Imagine if every single African American in the United States that was really fed up with being angry, sad and disgusted, would pick ONE DAY to simply ‘stay at home’ from every single job, work site, sports arena and government office in the United States of America. I’m very sure that within 72 hours from Wall Street to the NFL…Black Lives Would Matter. September 26, 2016 is THE DAY. #ItsTime #CanWeDoIt? #ACallToAction #StayAtHomeSeptember262016 #RIPTerenceCrutcher #HandsUpDontShoot #Missing24

It appears that some are actually going to skip work on Monday, as one person commented, “I will be home that day because my black son was killed and his black life mattered.”

Of course, this will do nothing to address the black-on-black violence which claims far more black lives than the police. In fact, it will only hurt black people whose paychecks depend on them actually showing up to work each day.
