Does that suffice?

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

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.
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.

Another post, another deflection.

So yeah, lets burn a church, set fire to some shops owned by people who are just trying to make a living, shot a police officer who is just trying to keep the peace, lets smash windows, smash random cars, lets all cruise the streets and give nofarks about anything, yeah, team america.

I agree there should be criminal charges against the police who did this, but also criminal charges should be brought against all the idiots starting fires, smashing stuff and being antisocial.

The leaders and the actual family of the guy that died are trying to bring some sense to this, but alot of these people don't care about the guy who died, they are just out to spin and yell and riot and have fun.

But, the criminals, of all colours, are taking the piss and have hijacked the righteous protest, and turned it into lawless anarchy.

Good luck America, your going to need it.

It does look like the most vocal and aggressive people are definitely on the spectrum and need their medication.

In finishing up my view of things:
All racist, of all colours and races, are weak scared cowards.

Punish the guilty, protect the innocent.

Tomorrow you're homeless
Tonight it's a blast

Since we are breaking all sorts of rules tonight, I propose wrapping this up with an old prayer I think we can all agree on:

"Father, give us courage to change what must be altered, serenity to accept what cannot be helped, and the insight to know the one from the other."
