Check out this shooting GF:
Obviously justified, right? And yet, hundreds of rioters are attacking police, rioting and looting.
Roy - AGAIN..............if YOU want to focus on the negative out-croppings of violence towards Police Officers go ahead.
For ME - I'll condemn the 5-7% and praise the 93-95%.
Numbers and visuals don't lie - never do. But it is when we ABUSE those numbers and visuals....slant them to a political view....outright LIE - that things become blurry.
Again, Roy - I don't paint ALL Trump supporters as Potential Dylan Roofs.
This isnít cherry picking. These are examples of what is happening right now. A man attempts to kill a police officer, and hundreds protest violently when he is rightfully shot.
Until BLM condemns violence, I find no legitimacy in their organization. I find them to be akin to black supremacists who want to have no accountability for violence and even murder.
I updated my post to address the video you posted, Roy.
And Roy - just recently DHS listed WHITE SUPREMACISTS as the MAIN THREAT going forward in this country - into 2021.
And I'd hope you find legitimacy in ME, Roy - as well as Bill Russell and Jaylen Brown and our REMAINING Celtics players wearing the Social Justice Labels.
Can't condemn us all.
There are of course many well-meaning individuals protesting. I find BLM itself to be a hate group, however. Youíre entitled to your disagreement.
And yes, white supremacists are terrible people. Black supremacy isnít the counterweight to that, however.
I see anger, probably prejudice, resentment, even hatred. But supremacy is the wrong word. Supremacy comes with power and black Americans in the general sense (not speaking to microcosms) have not ever had equality, never mind power. This has been true with respect to business ownership, wages, healthcare, politics, education ó you name it. Also, show me the White Supremacy marches with all the Blacks marching alongside the whites. The White Supremacists Iíve heard speak would likely not allow Blacks to walk near them. By not speaking out in condemnation of the violence, maybe BLM is saying that they are ok with the broad message being America simply isnít and never has been great, that black America has been violent and unsafe for centuries and that White America has historically turned its back on (not condemned) violence toward and among Blacks in America. Maybe they see Trumpís election as a tone deaf response by white America to the racial messaging of Trump, Miller and others. You can condemn BLM for this of course, but i think itís a mistake to ignore the emotion
underlying and driving the protest. The emotion that for some spills out aggressively and for others keeps them undistracted and undeterred in keeping their eye on purpose of the movement.
