What a sad thread... So much misinformation and hate.

And like usual, only one person, in this case, "runec" who is posting contextual sources, thank you for doing that.

I don't like to get into online battles but I do encourage folks to actually go to a BLM sit-in, teach-in, rally, PROTEST, etc. Go with an open mind, and talk to the people there, you might be surprised when you treat others with humanity, you'll get the same in return. And you'll learn much more depth and perspective from conversations rather than looking articles up online, whether in support or against BLM.

I used to be skeptical of them as well, but instead of just watching biased news or articles (secondary sources), I chose to have direct conversations with both BLM and also the police officers/staff from the city I live, Minneapolis, MN.

Anyhow, I hope people can continue to think and feel with their hearts as much as their heads. All the best.

I think BLM's trying to say that they don't actually want the police or anyone else to, you know, change, evolve, and better themselves, BLM just want them to admit they are horrible people, and that they will always be inherently evil, because... I dunno, because they're police?

Because the appropriate responses when someone tries to extend an olive branch (even if it IS just symbolic) is TOTALLY to call them a bunch of insincere assholes and tell them it (and by inference, NOTHING else they can ever do) will never make amends for what they've done before (and therefore that it is pointless to even TRY to make amends!)

I sure am glad people are reasonable and diplomatic these days. Wow! Such compromise! Very conflict resolve!
