    Destroying replaceable property may not be on the same LEVEL of violence as murder, but it is ruining some people's lives, some of which the cause is supposed to be HELPING.........not to mention the deaths like the chief in St Louis last night

    That supports our argument ; that's incredibly disproportionate

    The debate has never been "whites don't suffer from police brutality"

    some police are acting inappropriate, while other officers are being attacked.

    some people are using a picture of Hitler with a bible, except it's fake.

    any comparison from Hitler to Trump is just ignorant.

    I believe the archaic, simplistic and erroneous view is those who feel black people are treated injustly on a systemic level. By all relevant factors, there has been no better time to be black in American than in our lifetime.

    The problem the black community feels is not just on the war on drugs laws. It’s the lack of options in the workforce. Every community (ethnicity) struggled when they first came to the US. But through hard work and perseverance someone could eventually rise out of poverty. In that way, the “good” could separate themselves from the “bad.” With the black community, at first they were slaves so obviously no opportunity to succeed. Then for a century they were purposefully held back through separation and Jim Crowe laws not to mention police brutality and just flat out racism across the board.

    We passed the civil rights act in the 1960s and eventually a lot of the racism from the past has worn off. But the jobs that one can peruse through sheer hard work and perseverance have worn off as well. It’s now easier and more lucrative for a young black male to join a gang culture than to go to school for 16 years and still maybe not get a job. Elitists have put college on a pedastool. White Elitist who feel guilty over the problems in the black community because their ancestors held slaves now want to micromanage the problems because they still feel like they are better than. That’s the true racism in this country now. It’s white people who treat black people like their children who they feel sorry for.

    This makes me sick. We should all protest this and riot and loot from the people who were rioting and looting.

    Watch the documentary 13th on Netflix. It is a disadvantage to not have generational wealth to pass on due to the systemic racism prevalent. Just like the Jim Crow laws in response to the abolition of slavery (13th amendment) the ramp up of inner city incarceration as a response to very minor infractions was the response to Civil Rights laws of the mid 60s. Whitey (which I am one) has had a tendency to do its best to hold down black people, figuratively and literally (knee to neck).

    First Bolded: Again, what an incredibly low bar to set. “Black people have it better today than they did when they were slaves or roseate!”. Whether black people have it better today compared to black people of the past isn’t the issue, black peoples today have it worse than white people (and other races) today.

    Second Bolded: When exactly did the racism eventually wear off? Like what year or timeframe? When exactly do you think racism stopped in this country?

    Third Bolded: Yes, people who agree with black people they are marginalized and want to help them are the real racists!

    It’s sad your post has devolved into your classic “it’s black people’s fault” rhetoric you always trot out. Unsurprising, but sad.
