Actor Isaiah Washington called on black Americans to boycott work today to send a harsh message to the rest of the country, USA Today reported.
In a post via Facebook , Washington said: "No work. No school. No shopping for 24 hours."
"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."
In another post, the ex Grey's Anatomy star wrote: "Every African born in America is fed up, hurt, confused, saddened and angry about the continued extrajudicial killings by public servants in our streets."
It is not known how effective the protest has been so far.

I wouldn't call it a stat holiday. Ain't like there's a rush.

It's a national holiday. Most states observe it.

If he worked for me and took a day off for every black cause that came along I'd FIRE his azz. . (my Trump impression). There's others willing to show up for work and not disrupt production. " YERRRRRRR FIRED! "

Yea, nothing like holding an economy hostage, very effectivet. That was the strategy used by Bin Laden, but then again he hated the US, but his goals and targets worked.

Umm. . . because what may be useful or convenient for Canada never, ever crosses our minds?
