After Sunday-Monday rioting and looting that was endorsed by BLM Chicago, Chicago residents are making it clear that they don’t want any of this stuff in their neighborhood.

They let some BLM folks who came to their neighborhood to ‘protest’ know what they were thinking in no uncertain terms, telling them to get the heck out.

BLM folks showed up in the Englewood area where the shooting with the police that sparked the rioting occurred.

The locals said they had nothing to do with the area. They also ripped the BLM folks for only caring when the shooting involves the police.

From NY Post:

“If you ain’t from Englewood, get the f–k out of here,” longtime local resident Darryl Smith shouted at protesters during tense confrontations.

“Y’all don’t come out when a kid gets shot. Y’all come out when it’s got something to do with the f—ing police,” he yelled through a loudspeaker, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

“If your issue is with the police, take it to 35th and Michigan,” he shouted, referring to Chicago police HQ. “Don’t come in Englewood with it.”


Warning for offensive language:

“We refuse to let anyone come to Englewood and tear it up,” one local, Charles McKenzie, told the station.

Even a grandmother of Allen — who was struck by return fire after shooting at cops Sunday, triggering the looting — lashed out at the carnage, saying there is “no excuse” for it.

“I don’t agree with the looting because that’s just an excuse to get what they want,” Joyce Brown told the Sun-Times.


Hundreds of rioters rampaged throughout Chicago, damaging property and looting. More than 100 arrests were made, 13 cops were wounded and two citizens were shot during the chaos. Rioters even went after the Ronald McDonald House which puts up kids with cancer and their families.

BLM Chicago later came out in support of the people who had been arrested for looting and basically endorsed the looting referring to it as “reparations” and holding a sign that encouraged people to “loot back.”

No wonder residents didn’t want these folks in the neighborhood.
