    Please, as if that means anything but go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back. Virtue signalling aside, there's plenty of people who are routinely managing symptoms but not the root of the problem and this doesn't solve much in the long run and that has been exactly my point the entire time. For example: On a massive scale, the cancer industry has raised billions and billions and billions of dollars over many decades and the rates of cancer have not gone down. They may be helping some people but in the bigger picture, they are failing the populace. This isn't negativity, this is truth. When progress isn't being made, one must concede this truth and thoroughly examine the issue and come up with new ways to solve the problem. Again, this is exactly my point.

    I guess virtue signalling the best you guys have to offer? The black community thanks you.

    "Virtue signalling" -- a phrase that seems to give you a hard-on, is just some bullshit to make people feel better about themselves for not doing anything. It's the same as SJW or PC.

    You asked me why I don't do anything to help, and told me I should talk to people. When I explained that it's all I do, you invent a new goalpost: That treatment or palliative care of any problem is pointless if I'm not providing a cure. Visit a hospice and let me know if nobody is helping anyone.

    Ah, I see we're taking a page out of the 2008 RNC, in which we mock community activists. Tell me, what the fuck do you do?

    Ugh, totally, really disturbing shit. Videos that I can't begin to understand.

    Meanwhile, this story and the videos are fucking horrifying as well. At least this cop WAS sent to prison for four years (it should have been longer).

    I know this isn't the right place to post this but I feel this is important as it relates to a lot of what is happening.

    Why? It doesn't really change A) the contents of the initial video that was shown of him pushing the owner of the store or B) the fact that the store maintains they were robbed.

    None of the store data is relevant because the cop who told Brown to get out of the street (and who later shot and killed Brown) didn't know that Brown was connected to a robbery.

    Sad sad sad reality. Entrepreneur Black kids sell water to tourists as a summer job, are suddenly surrounded by armed D.C. Undercover cops and handcuffed in front of tourists "for the safety of the officers" because Black kids selling water are so dangerous to armed cops.

    Stockley was found not guilty.

    Excellent. I have a wedding downtown tonight. And I have a flight in the morning.

    fuck

    EDIT: Serious question, do you think a black lives matter sticker on my window might save my car from being damaged tonight? How do I blend in?

    Serious answer: No and the wedding is probably a terrible idea.

    This wedding was supposed to take place this Friday in Lake Worth Florida today and they had to call it off. First they got hit by Hurricane Irma, now they’re getting hit with Hurricane Stockley.

    I feel so good about this protest knowing that a "friend" of mine who panned the removal of confederate monuments as cultural erasure is down there working the protest.

    He's a St. Louis Metro Police officer BTW.
