Most anyone can do that white or black but Floyd happened upon one cop who was determined to kill him.  Could you be the next Floyd?  Most cops if you don't give them a hard time and fight them, you will wind up unscathed (white or black).  Some who want to do battle will fare much worse!

With 500,000 people declaring bankruptcy each year due at least in part to unexpected medical costs, and millions of people without healthcare coverage, tens of millions underinsured, decades of rising income inequality, rich getting richer while the poor is getting poorer, and your argument is "Let's not give everyone healthcare" but let's give them more "opportunities" for healthcare. Yes, we got ours. Let them get theirs and somehow the less fortunate will believe that we care. I see more fires and looting in our future.

"Racism is bad" we say, but let them figure out how to navigate our dyfunctional healthcare system. 

This type of attitude leads to all types of pent-up anger by those who don't have much to lose.

We can take an "Us against them" attitude, or we can try to unify our country. Healthcare is a very good place to start.

More opportunity would be better than giving universal healthcare... IMO. I'll bet the ranch lots of Bernie bros are involved in the riots.

 

Free stuff is what rioters want. We're looking at the ant and the grasshopper story play out. I say time to get rid of the chaff.

Fires, riots, looting.

 

I think universal healthcare would go a long way in unifying our country by making sure that everyone is taken care of. We all look out for each other - from the best of us to the least of us. 

"All for one and one for all" works better for us that the dog-eat-dog system we have now.

Former NAACP Leader Dianne Binns showed up to support the initial protest over the police killing of George Floyd. But when she realized it was turning into a riot and looting exercise, which of course has nothing to do with protesting the police or paying respect for George Floyd.

 

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/these-people-dont-give-a-**bleep**-about-george-floyd-former...

 

A former local NAACP leader criticized the protesters in Minneapolis who became violent as they demonstrated over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died this week in police custody.

“All this **** that's up here. St. Paul ain’t got **** to do with what happened. … and these people don’t give a **bleep** about George Floyd,” Dianne Binns, former head of the NAACP chapter in St. Paul, Minnesota, said on Thursday. “Leave this **** alone. These mother f---ers need to go home.”

Binns told a reporter she initially went to the “rally” to give her support for the protesters angry about Floyd’s death but soon realized it was going to be a "riot" and left.

“It wasn’t a rally. It was going to be a riot, so I left,” she said. “I know how it was going to end, so I left the rally.” Binns continued: “Why are we going to burn down the small-business owners who are there for us?”


Russians groups are creating fake BLM groups to exacerbate existing divisions in American society.

A lot of people like you are being catfished by Russian troll groups. Don't become an unwitting operative towards Moscow.

You must be watching TV from another planet.

No ... just watching stations other than Fox News.

 

 

Not that many black ...  white-supremacists or ruskies.

80% of the rioters were from outside the state .... reported to be White Supremacists and terrorists incited by Russians .... not Russians among the rioters as you falsely stated of my post.

 

 

 

That post is illusory truth.... you want it to be so, so you believe it. 

No ... my post was factual. You want it to say something else so you distorted it.

 

 

Those anarchists get money to travel from somewhere, and I'll bet the ranch it ain't from working.

Yup ..... one source could have been through Russian contacts.
