A Black Lives Matter (BLM) organizer in Chicago named Ariel Atkins said that looting is fine because it’s the equivalent to reparations. She also said that large businesses have insurance so they’ll get everything back that was stolen. Her comments come on the heels of over 200 stores on the “Magnificent Mile” in Downtown Chicago reporting damage from looting. Most of the damage happened in one night and it wasn’t the first time that looting happened recently in the same area.
