More than 400 businesses damaged or destroyed in Minneapolis alone. Retired police captain David Dorn shot down like a dog and left to die like garbage so thugs could loot the jewelry shop he was protecting. The so-called church of the Presidents set on fire by rioters. These are the people we should be grateful to for their restraint?

West is a disgrace to the legacy of MLK who was confronted with much worse and dangerous racism but chose to overcome it with non violent methods and the righteous virtue of the cause.

You didn't even watch the video, did you.....

If you would have you would have known that Mr. West was ALL about peace, not violence in that segment.....


So, watch it now and educate yourself.....

Like most academics, West is enthralled by the theoretical and ignores the real world if it challenges his premises . . .

stone mountain Georgia. there are always gun carrying maga. white militia. it's a 'white space' if you will.
hell on the Alabama side of stone mountain, I was told blacks never went up there cause they feared they won't come back. over the weekend in ga there was also a militia made up of white Asian, mostly black and Hispanic people calling themselves the nfac (Not F**king Around Coalition), marched in that KKK stronghold presumably to protest the carvings in the mountain there.

in your video the guy in the car spoke to them and they came and spoke with him.
I haven't researched how their march ended, but I saw many other videos of the peaceful march on twitter and other places yesterday.

my op is an appeal to healing
so avail yourself of that and meanwhile YouTube and Netflix are rife with stories highlighted to allow you to get the drift of black the struggle.
I urge you to start there.
we are all in this together.

And now there are many areas of the USA that are no-go zones for white conservatives, especially Trump supporters . . . Which was my point, that West's opinion, drawn from the "love" he felt at the Floyd funeral, has no relationship with the actual condition in the real world. His opinion is molded by his theoretical ideals of what the movement represents and what it demands; problem is, the mob has evolved way past the theoretical.

Protesting statues and carvings is the bankrupt (or worse) actions of people who have either abandoned or have been diverted from the cause they claim energizes them.

The Floyd murder was a galvanizing event, problem is, the Blacks would have been forced to share the outrage with whites and such unity is not acceptable. The Marxst disruptors who are really directing things are capitalizing on Floyd's murder to effect Black unrest before the election in the immediate short term, and to bring about Marxist destabilization in the longer term.

LOL. The Black militant said he's that White guy's worst nightmare and he asked him, "where are our reparations" . . .

There will be no healing, there will only be increased unrest and riots and death and misery as we get closer to the election. Your claimed desire for healing is not a goal of those who are directing the unrest. It matters little who wins in November, the unrest will continue -- either in the streets with violence if Trump wins or pushed down from the top in a more precise, targeted manner, as Marxist loyalists are inserted into government if Hollowman is elected.

Here is a video of what is really happening. You are correct, in the end we are in this together, problem is you leftists believe that you will be the ones to enjoy power once the destabilization reaches the tipping point. As the KGB officer says, you will have exceeded your usefulness and will be eliminated -- put against the wall and shot just like anti-Marxists -- because to a true-red Marxist, there is nothing worse than a disillusioned ideological leftist when they discover they have only been a means to an end (AKA "useful idiots") . . .

Ok wait a minute, isn't this America?
Can't Black people march with weapons too?
they said they were "the black militia" .
There are other "militias" for self defense. Aren't things equal in America now? since -fill-in-the blank- time all people have all the same rights and privileges and maybe even more than white people I've been told.
When white guys filled city halls, carrying guns, to protest the lock-downs. they weren't their to kill anyone right? No shots fired, no harm done.
OPEN CARRY.
So you see a select few black people march, OPEN CARRY, to protest for things they want ( who never shot or killed anyone BTW) and somehow you conclude that all black people have violent intent and have shown no love, patience or self-control?
Just guessing here but it Seems to me you'll find A LOT more black Churches on youtube and elsewhere preaching peace and love. As well as many individual blacks, after specific abuses and murders of there family members, than you will find Black Militia anywhere.

If your willing to look for it that is.

A police officer killed his brother. (Walked into his apartment "by mistake" and shot him on his couch)
She has been convicted of murder.
When given the chance to speak with the cop who killed his brother, he asked just one thing of her.
A hug.
Listen to the entire courtroom gasp...
Incredible.

this is the tradition that West is talking about JL.

Do you want to deny it the response of love and forgiveness exist or engage with it? Or should all the Blacks in these churches do what you seem to think we are and join the Black Militia and organize for violence?
We didn't go that route when things were worse, it's not a real option now.
But don't think that more blacks aren't arming themselves for self defense. It's not mentioned often but even Martian Luther King had weapons at his home to defend himself and his family JL.
