Black Lies Matter- the Problem not the Solution

I’m failing to understand why an unjust act in one region of the country is causing violent protests in all areas of the country.

Are there racist and corrupt cops? Sure there are some but there’s countless others who are ethical people doing their jobs impeccably well.

Also how does inflicting violence and destroying property help your cause? How are you better than the people you’re protesting against?

It’s a well known fact that BLM ships in rioters to different areas of the country.

If any person is prejudiced already, seeing
people looting and rioting is only going to reinforce the negative stereotypes, not help break them down.

Yes, I’m white. Do you have a coherent rebuttal or would you just like to paint me as a white bigot for questioning BLM’s narrative?

I have a coherent repbuttal. First of all, your wrong. It isn't a 'well known fact' that BLM ships in rioters. Look at the vidoes and the photos, most of the rioters are white, most of the looters are white. The first fire in Minneapolis was started by a white police officer from a nearby town.

You miss the most obvious. Others are protesting because they endure similar treatment in their cities. Sen. Tim Scott (R) SC said on Fox News Sunday that even as an elected official he was pulled over for no reason 7 times in one year. His crime? "He was a black man driving a car", his words, not mine.

American's are anxious, desperate and afraid. 41 million out of work, 100,000 dead, 200,000 hospitalized, the virus is spreading and our cities are on fire. The looters and the rioters are mostly white men in their 20's. Every city has career criminals do you think they're just staying home?

This is much bigger than liberal vs conservative. Our country is falling apart and we have a President who STILL hasn't addressed the country. The son of a biitch just tweets.

On a smaller scale, Geekfest in the late 80’s in Va. Beach was very similar to what’s happening now. I remember one merchant on the boardwalk that camped out in his store with the lights off. Sure enough his windows were broken and a crowd came in and started looting and tearing up the place. He shot one of them and propped him up outside of his store to send a serious message and it worked.

your attitude. Yeah, you can’t do that, so maybe try some understanding instead of trying to make things worse. I ain’t giving rioters/looters a pass, but the folks that have protested peacefully have drawn scorn too.

You want a better America? Participate, help make it better for everybody...before the riots happen.

As far as I'm concerned they were. They were intentionally disrespecting the flag and the country during a FOOTBALL game. After a while it just became more about them than anything else. If they wanted to do TV spots later or join in protests, I'd be all about it. In any case, Trump won...again...and the NFL has been better for it and without Kaep.

and I don't give a chit what they were protesting. I and everyone else didn't want to see it at football games which are an escape from all the political and other bs. I've already said I support the protesters and the cop was guilty so I'm not really sure what you and your buttercup friends are going for. Even when we agree with you, you are still a-holes. Are you even African-American or just an SJW? Just curious.

Nothing justifies the criminal behavior we are witnessing now on such a massive scale. Innocent people are being victimized, and it's wrong. Unreal that anybody would try to justify or rationalize it. Being black for a day or a week or a month doesn't change that.

to black men and women. Or are you just gonna lie to yourself and others and say we all have the same rights? You want cops to come to your car with guns drawn when you get pulled over, or would you just rather they not do that to black people?

Rioting doesn’t help anything, but if you don’t want it, recognize inequality and do something about it. It’s not black vs white, pub vs dem, rich vs poor; it’s Americans, just like you, that are not treated like you. You want to snowflake about rioting, but poor treatment and killing of people just like you elicits little response? It’s all of our jobs to fix it before it happens again.


I believe that a lot of black people are treated differently

by some bad people. I think that's wrong. It's a massive lie that black people, in general, are being routinely preyed upon by white police (or white people in general). Even if it were true, it still does not in any way, by any stretch of the craziest person's mind or twisted logic, justify the victimization of more and more innocent people. You are one sick individual if you believe that.

treated poorly by cops is a standard, not a an irregularity.

Rioting doesn’t help anything, it just doesn’t surprise me. You pick on an individual or a group of people long enough, it shouldn’t surprise anyone when they fight back.

Explain how you came to believe it is the standard. And how do you explain white people who get treated badly by cops? And how do you explain black people being treated badly by black cops? Racism is not the magic bullet, and should not be assumed without evidence in specific cases; in other words, we can't just assume that white cops are racists in any given incident, but that's exactly what happens.

That blanket, meaningless statement “pull your head out of the sand” does nothing to help your argument.

Here’s a talking point; more unarmed white Americans were killed in 2019 than unarmed blacks.

the 2nd and last box for $1000 Alex. The first is violence and the rest are athletes and celebrities that I don’t care to hear from while they are playing their sport or at an award show for a song or movie that is supposed to be an escape. If they’d like to join the other peaceful protests, then that’s great. Not sure why some of you make this so difficult.

You know, for someone who whines and escalates every time someone responds to your opinionated posts, I have never seen more personally-directed attacks from ANYONE who has posted in this forum in like a decade, outside of maybe Corny.

Bottom line, you’re a terrible contributor to this forum. You’re exactly the kind of poster that takes all this way too seriously and would do something like try to wreck someone’s personal life over stupid internet quarrels. I would strongly encourage you to take a look at the kind of interactions you have with others here on a daily basis and consider whether it’s everyone else that is the problem, or whether perhaps this sort of social interaction just isn’t for you.

They were criticized because they are absolutely absent when a Spanish, White , Chinese, European Or any other race for that matter are killed. If you advocate for equality then why not start by acting like every life matters and should be treated equal?

I'd say that I hope those stores don't rebuild/restock, but I'm afraid all that trash might move to other states.

As I'm typing this, I just saw some looter run out of a store in NYC and a cop met him and laid him out, but then he just let him run off???!
