A brave Louisville restaurant owner is standing up to the Black Lives Matter organized crime racketeering mob and has put them on blast for using “mafia tactics” in an attempt to shake down local businesses. BLM mafia actions are illegal under the RICO prosecution laws.
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering and allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes they ordered others to do or assisted them in doing
A Cuban business owner, Fernando Martinez, owner of La Bodeguita de Mima, had his business vandalized for refusing to comply with a lengthy set of demands sent to local businesses by mafia leaders within the Black Lives Matter organization.
“On Thursday, a mob of protesters returned to the restaurant after seeing Martinez’s post about the illegal demands on Facebook. While there, the protesters smashed flower pots outside the business, while the rest spoke with Martinez and other employees about why the demands are needed,” the Courier Journal reported.
In response to his business being targeted, he organized a protest of Cuban business owners to stand against Black Lives Matter’s forcing business to comply with their demands, or destroying their businesses.
The demands given to him by the “peaceful protesters,” include employing at least 23 percent black staff, buying at least 23 percent of their inventory from black retailers or make a recurring donation of 1.5 percent of their net sales to a local black charity.
They were also told they must display a Black Lives Matter sign in their window, or the business would be fire bombed.

The Black Lives Matter “activists” also listed a series of repercussions that businesses should expect if they refuse to comply with their demands, and told Martinez that noncompliance would risk “having their store fronts ‘f****d with.”
Other listed threats of retaliation for refusing to bow to the mafia tactics included a boycott, social media shaming, and an “invasive reclamation” whereby black-owned businesses with competing goods of services would set up “booths and tables” outside.
On Sunday, Martinez held a Cuban-led protest against Black Lives Matter. During the protest, one of the speakers asserted that “the reason we are here is because the system, because socialism doesn’t work. It doesn’t work.”
