  1. Unfortunately, just from social media ...it’s become exhausting and folks are tossing around the r-word extremely liberally. You have white people that are supportive of the movement, have donated and try to do the right thing, only to be lectured. Before long, people are just going to turn off.
  2. First off, I love your contributions to this thread. We've always had incredibly great discussions. That's why I want to pose a question as social media has become a place in the last week or so where tensions have boiled over. The boyfriend posted something about racism and someone responded to him asserting that people of color cannot be racist because racism is more of a systemic thing against folks that wield the least amount of power and clout in society. My question is, do you agree with this?
  3. The violence has to be stopped though. We have another protest in my city which is outside Boston and the page calls for a bigger crowd specifically so I'm getting a bit nervous. It's on the Governors of these states to do this. I'm not saying literally put the people down, but when you see looting and destruction of property, there's this visceral reaction - you're clearly not part of this community and you don't particularly care about the issue at hand, you simply want to foment unrest and chaos.
  4. In all honesty, it doesn't seem like a lot of the folks that came into these cities and caused major destruction even reside within the community. I sincerely hope they find some of them through camera footage.
  5. That's very important to remember and I understand very well that our president called him and other players that did the same "sons of bitches," which was extremely unhelpful.
  6. Condragulations Jaida! I thought Gigi killed the final lipsync as well. Amazing season!
  7. It seems some people have an inability to acknowledge pain that folks are feeling. Yes, individuals should exercise self control, but at the same time, this is what happens when communities feel unheard and that they don’t matter. As heartbreaking as this is, I’m not surprised there’s unrest. I watched for quite some time last night, too sad. I attended a vigil down the street from where I live and a couple hundred people showed up. It was perfectly peaceful even though I do live in a city with a fair bit of violent crime generally. Boston has a protest planned for a few hours from now, so we'll see what happens. I don't defend destruction of property and looting in the least, but I also see it from both sides. You also have outside agitators from what I've heard anecdotally, both white supremacist types and people on the far left as well.

    I'll always love their music.
  9. I think the difference is that President Trump repeatedly criticized him over and over for the very same behavior and vowed not to do it. In isolation, it doesn't mean a whole lot. Just that it's hypocritical behavior to keep it real.
  10. Seems so long ago, yet 15 years? We're getting old kids.
  11. I would tend to agree with you. I always laugh at the Hitler/authoritarian parallels. He's far too lazy day to day to be that ever, lol. What does bother me and it'll never not bother me, he has no ability to show empathy, at least publicly.
  12. Can't wait to see what's next for him.
  13. This is why anyone that wants to be leader of the free world has to be careful with their words and I've said it from the beginning. The media is most complicit when it comes to pointing out every single "falsehood" with regard to Trump, so when something genuinely worth condemning pops up, a sizable portion of the public doesn't always believe them. Shock.
