    I’m not missing the point.

    What is wrong with saying Black lives matter too?

    That current statement just perceives it is just them that suffers in this Country and that is not true.

    Not an assumption. It's a belief.
    You don't think it's plausible that 55% of trump supporters are racist? I genuinely believe they are
    Again, I am not saying card carrying members who want to actively harm people. I am not saying mean people.

    I am saying people who would rather things stay as they are even if it means a group of people remains at a disadvantage.

    Yes you are. You're equating what black people deal with to what all other races deal with. Are white people being profiled, shot at, brutalized by cops because of the color of their skin? There is answer is no. This is cultural circumstance that needs to change and the anger comes from the fact that nothing is done to change it.

    Cops have doing this **** for years. It has to stop.

    True. You couldn't wash your car or cut your hair for a month and half. How did you survive that systemic oppression of the middle class white male?

    Did the first Time you went to the car wash, the attendant, ask you to keep your hands where he could see them because he knew how white people love soap and he was afraid you'd try to steal some?

    Whites don't worry about being killed by cops like blacks do. Nor do whites worry about a black person thresteningbto call the police on them for any reason.

    Truth is my most worldly and scholarly friend we are a constitutional republic and representative democracy, governed by the democratic process at both the local and federal levels.

    In practice, the word “republic” has the same meaning as the term “representative democracy.” And a representative democracy is a form of democracy in the same way that a Gala or Macintosh is a form of apple.

    Flimflam, if you have to explain the obvious I fear it falls on deaf ears. Save your breath and the pixels.

    I don't know, the families and descendants of the men and women owned by that man and the men who fought by his side for the purpose of seeing that ownership continue. You know, the men who wanted to own other men and women as property

    (Or anyone else who finds slavery to be a bit offensive.)

    As to your history comment, true but I don't see Germany with too many hitler statues.

    I swear I laughed so hard at this post because I thought you had written "twerking angrily" and the image of Trump, angrily twerking at Kap made my laugh like crazy.

    Trump has his super serious and trying to be sexy face on as he twerks mercilessly at Colin. He breaks a sweat, the hair dye drips down his face leaving a different color of orange streaks on his skin as he realizes he is desperately turned on by Colin while backing that azz up in full twerk

    MY EYES! I can't unsee the image of all that blubber violently sloshing to and fro!

    Thanks clown....and I had a delicious dinner planned.

    I would say no to all. It wouldn't be a question of what could they have done to stop it, but rather prevent it from ever getting to this point.
    I really don't think Trump is to blame for it escalating to what it has either. This looting and rioting happened before Trump over police brutality against black citizens as well.

    That said, something obviously needs to be done. I firmly believe that probably 98% of law enforcement are good and fair people. But those 2% make 100% of them look like anti black pieces of ****. That isn't fair to the officers who are put even more at risk because of it and it isn't fair to the black community who are unjustly targeted by the bad cops.

    No idea what the answer is, but there should be a zero tolerance policy for all law enforcement against all races. They should be there to support and protect all colors of skin.

    Well one thing that will happen as a result of these “ protests” is that there will likely be large enough spikes in the virus to warrant more closures
