Another Hollywood Actor Calls All Black People…To Skip Work?!

Another Hollywood Actor Calls All Black People…To Skip Work?!


Actor Isaiah Washington from ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” is really upset about officer-involved shootings. With protesters marching around the streets following the most recent death of Keith Lamont Scott, Washington got really upset on his social media page. He decided to take action! HERE is what he posted on social media…

The post reads:

“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.

I’m sure Washington thought it was a really grand idea to empower his Black Lives Matter movement friends. But if he understood the numbers, he would understand that it’s not very realistic.


I want to point out some statistics. First understand that 11% of the population in the United States are black. Of that 11% in 2012, an average of 41.6% of African Americans received means-tested benefits each month. So IF all black people supported Isaiah Washington’s campaign, September 26th will see less than 5% of the working population missing from work. Based on these numbers, every workplace will miss 1 employee per 20. Think of your own workplace, would 1 in 20 affect the work load?
