Criminals always defend their actions. This is no different.
Stealing is a crime.
And there was the other BLM leader who declared that looting was not a crime because stores have insurance.
Is that a given? I couldn't get insurance on the wife's rental house in the hood. Wasn't even a question of too ridiculously expensive to afford, it simply wasn't available.
And just who does he think pays for the insurance? I heard a rumor that insurance companies add their losses to the premiums they charge. Then there is a conspiracy of retailers to pass the increased premium costs on to their customers. When the business closes because it is burned down or bankrupt, the employees lose their jobs. If they lose their jobs, they can't pay for their children to go to Yale. If they can't go to Yale, who is going to listen to morons like DeRay McKesson!
I would have expected something like this from Harvard. What a shame that a once great institution like Yale has sunk so low.
And this surprises folks how?
Typical. Also not much of a writer, if that quoted paragraph is an example. He writes in "ghetto academic," style, as I'd expect. A blend of "socialist philosopher" and "I'm trying to sound like I think smart people sound" (think "smart brother" from Undercover Brother).
Yeah there's more...
New affirmative defense?
Dats how they do....
As a grass roots movement I wasn't aware that it has A LEADER... This reminds me of the presses attempts to discredit the Tea Party grass roots movement with similar pieces on extremists who associated themselves with the movement.
So when a city's team loses ( or wins) a championship, the looters are making a political statement.....powerful.
I guess I understand, to some degree, that looting is politically motivated. But not sure how terrorizing the local liquor store is proving anything relevant.
What looting does prove is that " the man" obviously doesn't frighten you or you would be hiding at home. If this country was truly a militarized police state that crap wouldn't fly.
All looting proves is how tolerant and non- violent the "establishment" is. Nobody got ran over by a tank in Ferguson.
From another thread...
Go to the site and read Item #2.
Please explain how a grass roots movement has a LEADER. Which is what the Fox piece was clearly claiming.
Does the Tea Party have a leader? As I said, I saw many of the same kind of propaganda pieces from the left when the tea party was getting established.
Why should I explain #BlackLivesMatter? I'm not a member. Besides, your mind is made up and closed to new information. If you want explanations, go to the #BlackLivesMatter website, their Facebook page. Read what they say about themselves. Get back to us after doing so.
Yale? more like Fail.
Looting cannot sensibly be defended.
I understand frustration or the black community, but there is a lack in sensibility. Both whites and blacks are looking dumb by association (to each other) because some members of both of the races are idiots. I'm going to break it down...
1. You're lying to yourself if you believe that racism doesn't exist anymore. It is alive and well. At work, a couple times a week, a complete stranger will use the N-word in front of me as a racial slur. Shame on me for not calling them out, but there is a conflict of interest since I working and rep. my company. Still, we need to establish in the white community that ignorance and name calling is petty and unacceptable. It's not 1945...
2. If you're going to assume racism is a motive in a particular situation, you's better choose wisely and be sure. It's waaaay politically incorrect for a white person to call out a black person for embellishing such a motive, so the black community needs to hold each other accountable when information isn't accurate. This makes the white community feel as though many cry wolf and in turn, more legitimate harsh racism isn't adequately addressed. I believe that many caucasians would lend more support when black Americans are treated unfairly.
I'm frustrated with the way that things have been protested. Many in the black community are upset because Darren Wilson wasn't indicted. Since none of us were there to witness, you have the right to be upset, but it doesn't make sense to protest the PD. The DA, who failed to indict, is appointed or elected. Put pressure on those officials or use your community's numbers to sway elections.
Does racism work both ways?
