    Those ass hole cops that killed that man seemed to have lit a powder keg. Now we got black celebrities calling for "striking back" and talking about "racist white people"

    Are we about to have a true race war

              First of all, the arrogance and narcissism and double standards of people like Lebron and Kaepernick and others is astounding and laughable.

              Secondly, yeah one thing that is different compared to when righties protest is the violence and destruction of the left...but we all knew this...iust like we know the media will turn a blind eye

              Third and to your point more, something does seem off....the way you protest is how they did it with Arbery in Brunswick...this just reeks of being Soros funded preplanned/staged/paid off to me....my contact to the WH told me that there are preplanned protests/riots in various metro cities scheduled throughout the year because their last hope is to keep causing chaos and trying anything to make Trump look bad all the way up to the election...not saying this is one of those moments but it makes you wonder.....you guys want to have some fun with it? Look up the term crisis actors...these are people who have been interviewed at multiple gun/police brutality protests...there is a woman who was down at Pulse Nightclub and then she was seen somewhere else in a different outfit and hair color....I'm telling you guys...after you take the red pill and wake up, you start questioning everything

                    Need to address some issues....be willing to compromise on certain things....at least temporarialy.

                    I will say with social media, it does have the potential to get legs.

                    Social media lets things get way out of control and gives a voice to stupid people that stoke the flames. Lebron and Magic talking about white people are just hunting black people. That gets a million shares. A guy like Whitlock trying to have an honest conversation is an Uncle Tom. No mention of the countless deaths daily that are black on black or black on white. But one black man is wrongfully killed and its off to the riots.

                      I have not watched any news....only read some stuff...The ignorance is amazing. I will say it's been a time in coming. It's been a known issue with police and lack of trust for years and years.

                      MINNEAPOLIS—Fires continued burning Thursday morning, the remains of clashes last night between police and demonstrators over the death of George Floyd, as protests spread to other U.S. cities.

                      Firefighters sprayed down a flaming roof of a business as residents took morning walks over broken glass to survey damage, including a McDonald’s recognizable only by its salvaged drive-through menu, and a looted Auto Zone with a handmade sign on the smashed front door that said, “Free **** for everybody!”

                      We do know that Black Lives Matter is spearheading the Minneapolis "protests", and that BLM is much more than a hashtag.

                      BLM was started in 2013 to gen up black outrage over the Trayvon Martin case acquittal of George Zimmerman. It was started by Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opel Tometi, all of whom are known Marxist revolutionaries.

                      Alicia Garza has ties to 4 front-groups of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), and organization whose mission is to overthrow capitalism:
                      1. National Domestic Worker's Alliance (NDWA) - whose goal is to train black female leaders to effect "concrete change". In 2016, she mobilized 250,000 workers as part of the group's "Care in Action" organization in an effort to get Stacy Abrams elected. The group is funded by George Soros' Open Society Institute, the Ben & Jerry's Foundation, the Marguerite Casey Foundation, and others.
                      2. School of Unity and Liberation (SOUL) - strives to “lay the groundwork for a strong social justice movement by supporting the development of a new generation of organizers rooted in a systemic change analysis—especially people of color, young women, queer and transgender youth, and low-income people”. The group is funded by The Heinz Foundation, the Akonadi Foundation, and others.
                      3. Right to the City Alliance (RTTC) - opposes inner-city “gentrification” that displaces “low-income people, people of color, marginalized LGBTQ communities, and youths of color from their historic urban neighborhoods. The group is funded by The Soros Funds, Ben & Jerry's Foundation, the Marguerite Casey Foundation, the Akonadi Foundation, and others.
                      4. People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER) - promotes "social change" by empowering low income and working class people, people of color, women, queer, and transgender people to eradicate the "problems of society: capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, homophobia and able-ism". The group is funded by Ben & Jerry's Foundation, the Marguerite Casey Foundation, the Akonadi Foundation, and others.
                      Patrisse Cullors is the head of Dignity and Power Now, a front group for the FRSO. She led a group of 600+ protesters from St. Louis to Ferguson, MO to "protest" the shooting of Michael Brown. She has visited the White House as a guest of Michelle Obama, and along with Opal Tometi, were guests of Rep. Barbara Lee at Obama's final State of the Union address. She is on the record at the 2015 Phoenix Netroots Nation, rallying her fellow blacks to "rise the f*ck up" and "burn everything down". She also said that the high rate of black-on-black crime is "a myth". Cullors was trained by former Weather Underground leader Eric Mann.

                      Opal Tometi is an organizer for Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI), a George Soros-funded group that strives to advance “immigrant rights and racial justice” for “African-American, Afro-Latino, African and Caribbean immigrant communities.”

                      At all BLM events, the group invoke the words of Assata Shakur, a Black Panther Marxist revolutionary and cop-killer who wrote: “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.". The last sentence is straight from the Communist Manifesto. BLM is funded via over 20 front-groups for the FRSO.

                      In 2017, the Minneapolis chapter of BLM posted photos of a man found hanged from a tree branch in Minneopolis, and stated that it was a black man whose hands were tied behind his back and hung by white people. The police revealed that it was a suicide of a mentally unstable white man whose hands were not tied behind his back. But the damage was done.

                      The Minneapolis BLM chapter also spearheaded the 18 days of rioting and protests that followed the death of Jamar Clark, who was shot after reaching for an officer's gun after a fight at a birthday party in Minneapolis.


                      BLM has little to do with reducing the killing of blacks, and is mostly rooted in re-forming America as a socialist nation, as shown by the "demands" made by BLM:

                      • an end to all forms of discrimination and the full recognition of our [Blacks’] human rights”;
                      • “an immediate end to police brutality and [to] the murder of Black people and all oppressed people”;
                      • “full, living-wage employment for our people,” to ensure “our right to a life with dignity”;
                      • “decent housing” and “an end to gentrification”;
                      • “an end to the school-to-prison pipeline,” a term for the practice of using black students’ behavioral problems as an excuse for pushing them out of the classroom and into the juvenile- and criminal-justice systems;
                      • “quality education for all,” including “free or affordable public university” enrollment;
                      • “freedom from mass incarceration and an end to the prison industrial complex,” whose hallmarks include “the over-policing and surveillance of [black] communities,” the enactment of many “racist laws,” and “the warehousing of black people”;
                      • “access to affordable healthy food for our neighborhoods”;
                      • “an aggressive attack against all laws, policies, and entities that disenfranchise any community from expressing themselves at the ballot” (e.g., Voter ID laws);
                      • “a public education system that teaches the rich history of Black people”;
                      • “the release of all U.S. political prisoners”;
                      • “an end to the military industrial complex that incentivizes private corporations to profit off of the death and destruction of Black and Brown communities across the globe”;
                      • the cessation of racially “discriminatory discipline practices” in the schools;
                      • a comprehensive Justice Department review of “systematic abuses by police departments” across the United States;
                      • congressional hearings investigating “the criminalization of communities of color”;
                      • an end to “the use of profiling on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin or religion by law-enforcement agencies”;
                      • the implementation of a National Plan of Action for Racial Justice by the Obama Administration, addressing “persistent and ongoing forms of racial discrimination and disparities that exist in nearly every sphere of life”;
                      • the release, by the office of U.S. attorney general, of “the names of all [police] officers involved in killing black people within the last five years … so they can be brought to justice—if they haven’t already”; and
                      • “a decrease in law-enforcement spending at the local, state and federal levels and a reinvestment [through the federal government] of that budgeted money into the black communities most devastated by poverty in order to create jobs, housing and schools.”

                      So, yes, the takeaway is that the Minneapolis riots are orchestrated by a group with much more interest than protesting the killing of George Floyd. And the other takeaway is to quit buying Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, as you are directly funding anti-American movements by pigging out on Cherry Garcia and Chunky Monkey.

                        It has been brewing for some time. Maybe when most Minnesotans are walking around with a new ratchet set, a bent air filter and two quarts of oil, the local police will finally think twice before doing something like this again.

                          I'll freely admit that I haven't been watching this story closely, but from what I have seen, it doesn't look good.

                            Based on the facts at hand(which almost always seem to be different with time), what I see is a terrible story of police overstepping(somewhat debatable since we don't know exactly what preceded these events), a fragment of society that are just waiting for situations like this to exploit, and a Take-One-Get-One Auto Zone ad.

                                Hell, there was a riot in down town Daytona Beach over the weekend.
                                Primarily , African American folks, supposedly having a party, that “got out of hand”.

                                it was ugly.



                                Police afraid to break up the party .
                                Can’t be construed as “Racists”.

                                No news on that one....

And yes...no more Ben and Jerry’s ice cream for me...not that I bought many to begin with....thanks for posting this...I would say this should go on Twitter but they will probably ban/“fact check it”....maybe put it on Facebook or Parler because people need to know this kind of stuff....it’s just astounding how differently the left and right protest...
