It's not what you're saying I'm saddened by, it's what you're not saying. I understand you like the evidence based debate, but that's not the important point right now.

Using catchy/rhyming slogans in leu of articulate explanation is for those that cannot, or do not wish to, actually think about what they are saying, or those who want compliance as opposed to independent action.

Edit, saw the first part before you added the second. Nevermind me.

We live in a time where the silent majority has allowed the oppression of our less privileged brothers and sisters to reach a breaking point. This willful blindness to the plight of our own citizens is a crime in and of itself. Not speaking up for the oppressed is tacit consent for the oppressors to continue, aided and abetted by your cowardice.

Does that suffice?

Edit: cheers

So again, are you going to keep avoiding what the real data, presented in front of you is saying? Or do you need for me to post the link to the video of George Floyd being murdered?

I don't know if you're trying to be a blockhead right now, or if you are truly just unaffected by this.

Much better! At least until the end. That part invites aggressive argument instead of discussion. If your goal is to pull someone towards your point of view, I suggest using a carrot and not a stick, so to speak.

Oh~ now assistant director email everyone that white supremacist protest warning never happened. Um... that’s not how it works. You called my boss freaking out telling EVERYONE to evacuate from the building. I contacted security & security checked w their supervisor, which checked w assistant director to confirm this info. THEN we evacuated the building... aka went home to eat lunch. Lol

There has been a trial? They were found guilty already? Trial by the press and rioters is not proof of anything yet.

It also does not mean that all cops look the other way all the time.
People painting all cops with the same brush is no different that any other form of bigotry or racism.

Lots of skeeze to ameliorate for the native populations pretty much all over the world.
Could help out a bit there.

And ask Victoria BC to stop pooping directly into the Salish Sea.
