Considering I've seen white store owners jumped and had the shit kicked out of them and seen the footage of them yelling, "shoot the white people!", the last damn place you'd find me is out there marching with them.
Would 2020 be the return of blackface for this reason? :hmm:

That's why I said birth. I understand enough history to know it didn't happen then. But I do believe that the genius of Washington, Madison, Franklin et. al. (a rare historical moment in itself, that such minds come together at one place, one time) and their brilliant document, set the seeds in place.
All those Washington's and Jefferson's carrying off flat screens...

I’ve managed to go my whole life without being beaten, thrown on the ground or shot by a cop. It’s a life skill that everyone should learn.
It's not always that simple. I have been beaten, and they were wrong...but, I was somewhere that they assumed I was involved in things I shouldn't be. I wasn't but they weren't going to listen.

Rioters marched through downtown Cleveland, same story. Broke out windows, looted a bunch of businesses. There was one Italian bakery that was prepared for them, though. They let them know not to start any shit at this particular business. The thugs chose wisely, and moved on down the sidewalk.

start with fixing the broken education system (imo).

if less people were dumb as fuck, things could start to get better.



.... _also get rid of the wanna be Socialists_ *cough cough*
Can't fix broken education, without first fixing broken homes, bad parenting and weak communities.*



* And this starts by stopping the foist of blame upon a perceived system of oppression conspiring to hold you back. Plenty people from all races and ethnicity have climbed the hill and made it, from all circumstances of life.

Blacks today have never been enslaved (unless you count the welfare state started in the 60s). Any 'oppression' they are experiencing is due to their own choices. The 'system' is NOT systematically racist.

All the peaceful protesters should, for the good of the nation,* put this on "Hold" and go home and stay home and allow law enforcement to deal with the criminals.

They can come out and protest when order has been restored.






* But this isn't a priority for them.
Further, they can use time wisely for constructive purposes. As stated before, go to libraries, research. Go to churches and community centers, discuss, strategize, plan.

For the most part they won't -- because they have other priorities -- sadly, many seek another agenda other than that they profess.

My wife got a call from her cousin (Sheriff's department) and he told her that the people involved in the riots in Pittsburgh and Butler were planning on coming into the rural areas to take what they wanted.

They couldn't possibly be that stupid.
Butler? Butler folk are going into rural areas? Uh, It don't get much more rural than Butler. Unless they're talking about running over to the Butler Farm Market and raiding the meat counters...

You're thinking of Hamilton...
