The news was designed to be depressing anyways. I suggest chilling with something more wholesome or find some more optimistic news.I'm starting to think I need to take a break not just from this thread but just from the news in general, I keep getting MATI and then just depressed reading and watching all of this bullshit.
Just look at the number of celebs who bought their kid's admission into college. When push comes to shove, people will always look out for #1 whether it is the right thing to do or not. If it ever gets to the point where speaking up for POC/minorities requires more than just a retweet or holding a protest sign while larping being a revolutionary, they will stop it in a heart beat. They don't feel threatened by these things because they feel that they still have power and still are in control. When they start to fear that they are losing that control, that's when you'll really see who actually drank the kool-aid and who just pretended to to keep their woke credentials from being cancelled.Why is all of the Caucasian world rolling over on their bellies to accept that their communal character is defined by the universally despicable actions of a murderous cop?
I’m watching an entire race be hoodwinked in real time into being the willing new target of an equally venomous racism. Sentiments like this are about whites people. They are trying to whip themselves in order to escape being whipped. That you got your rhetoric out in front doesn’t mean that you are going to be spared from being increasingly the new playtoy of that same racism exchanged hands.
You'd figure for a bunch of politically and violently charged white people going after the cops for killing a black man, they wouldn't cuck so easily to law enforcement like this.Grand Rapids, Michigan protestors being dispersed by police, national guard. It's probably over. Detroit still protesting. Rest of the state seems quiet for now.
