I disagree , White kids are also told (by their parents)  to do what a Policemen says (and not to be rude)

Generally speaking, that might be true. However, statistics from the Department of Justice show that White people, more often than any other group in the U.S, are shot to death by the police. From 2017 until 2020, about 40% of those shot to death by the police were White, about 22% were Black, about 16% were Hispanics and about 22% were others.

There are alot of disenfranchised Americans. No doubt about that. But the black folks have it the worst. There is still rampant racism in the US and it is nowhere near a level playing field. 

 

What is the most glaring in all this is that massive amounts of white people showed up and demonstrated recently over the shutdown. No problem. They were welcomed by the cops. But, when people of color demonstrate they are all labeled rioters and terrorists. Granted there was some rioting. But most were peaceful, at least until the cops started bashing them and gassing them. Based on his recent language, how can we fairly describe the leader of the "free world"? Vicious dogs. The best armed military is coming after you! 

 the people I have seen creating the most destruction and fomenting the most fear and conflict were young White men, though some females too. Twitterwill give you a much better idea of what's going on than the mainstream news will. It may be that the revolution IS being televized.

Those are raw numbers. When you consider there are 6 times as many whites as blacks in the US, the PERCENTAGE of blacks killed is much higher.

When the President of a Nation that proclaims itself to be the  prime example of  democracy and  protector of that principle has to resort to  calling on it's own military  to forcefully  subdue internal civil disobedience that in various forms  has been encouraged  by that same President then the people of that  nation  need to understand what many observers outside that  Nation have long recognized !

The  naive who  have willingly swallowed  the concept rampant  monopolist capitalism versus honest enterprising commercialism sold themselves into that  45 years  back.

Bezos is now King of the USA by virtue of that  naivety and has  no responsibility  or culpability.

Should we all congratulate him  or  curse  him?

The implosion that is occurring was  inevitable.

Four police shot during protest in  St Louis

How do you stop this <deleted>, some seem to think if Trump comes out and sings Kumbaya this will all end. Yeah, I don't think so, I think the time for a big stick is overdue.

Yeah, that's worked so well since the inception of slavery. They start getting uppity, break out the whip. A real olive branch has never been tried. Maybe it's time.

Yes. Likely either disenfranchised young men, hired hands of the right, or just idiots with parents who tried too hard to be their "friends". Regardless once again Trump has failed dismally. Once again he was given a golden opportunity. And instead all this coward can do is threaten young Americans with vicious dogs, all the might of the national guard and the military and other nonsensical and potentially illegal actions. All this from the deferment king, who would wet his pants if he were ever in the line of fire.

What are you getting on about? So many of the troublemakers are white, you want to create racism where it doesn't exist.

As Whites make up a higher percent of the population ,more Whites should be begetting shot .

Need to get the figure up to 50 %

 I don't think they're "of the right". I think those guys on the right like to shoot people and run them over with their cars. The one's I have seen throw things through windows and spray paint things. More destruction oriented it seems.

Come on. We all know trump is an idiot. This is how its done...

 

Small percentage riot. Major perecentage peaceful. Trump latches on to riots and stokes the fire hoping it gets very bad.

 

He then comes in and fixes it then offers soft words and claims a success.

 

Thats all he has ever done. Wait for anger, make it worse, fix it.
