I don't want the police issue to get lost either. Those officers should pay the price and I think Chavin should be charged with first degree murder. I just don't think it is "systemic" vs individual/dept racism and I think it is unfair to label all police as racist. Either way they should be weeded out. I agree with you that young people aren't always careful/in denial but IMO that is exactly the problem bc they will be the ones (not being careful) and spreading Covid. Most of the first protestors were not simply wanting to go to a bar, haircut etc, much bigger picture.
You of course note this includes freedom of religion. Churches have been closed for a long time and some people trying to have Church in their cars completely social distancing were harassed by cops, made to disperse and fined (one I remember was in Mississippi)
Sigh, I am not sure you get it. I think the politics have more to do with this than you realize. While I do agree with you that Trump says/tweets stupid things sometimes look past that and look at his actions, what he has done for the black community. I am a Independent also, not a crazy Republican. I try to look at the bigger picture to see what has caused these issues and how to solve them. I agree it is sad that Politicians dont care, I just think it is across the board and as I stated IMO it is more the Dems than the Reps in this situation re: the African American community. I don't just say this without hearing and reading other opinions on the matter. People want to dislike this President so much they apparently are OK with Bidens racist history.
People do get. Just bc some see a different way to solve the problem (and the cause) doesn't mean they don't get it. Many more innocent people have died at the "peaceful" protests, apparently that is unimportant to some.
you have got to be kidding
I think some of you are forgetting the history of racism in this country, or maybe never knew it to begin with. I don't think that pointing out the innocent people have died (including some cops who were shot in the head assassination style) during the protest makes them an "apologist" for racism.
