Hopefully we attract the right crowd.

Anytime you bring up this stuff as an issue, people on the far left say "they're a private company, they can do what they want!" I'm not fkn talking about what they currently can get away with legally. Maybe I just find it appalling that I'm not allowed to hear both sides of a story and come to my own conclusion. Free speech isn't just something in the constitution, as someone else said, it's an idea that was worth putting into law.

Also there was a great comment on the video that deserves to be read:

"This hurts my soul so much to watch, but I force myself to watch. That way I can ensure that I understand the true victims that are being created intentionally and on purpose by these riots. Police brutality has victims for sure, and legal reform is a good goal to accomplish. However, these are innocent victims that have their businesses burned and communities destroyed regardless of the color of their skin. This is the farthest thing from Justice that you can get. These acts only breed racism because of the banner that is flown during the destruction. These actions do not bring us closer together, or create reformation/betterment of the current system. I'm incredibly depressed at how far we have come to have such a forced reversal because people want to make the world burn. I just hope that God is able to sway those who are tearing down these communities and businesses so build our communities up instead of tear them down. Yesterday I watched Dr. Martin Luther King Jrs I have a dream speech for the first time in a long time in its entirety. The United States he lived in sharply contrasts the world that we saw in 2019 for instance. That there was true oppression on so many fronts. We have moved mountains since that day, but we fail to see where we were to where we are. Perception is reality, and being real, we will never be happy unless we truly are able to see the mountains of progress. The closest I can compare would be the perception of 1st world problems. That some complain big time when their cell phone drops signal in a canyon. But in contrast families in 3rd world countries need to walk hours a day for clean water and fire wood. Many seem to be so focused on how much of a victim they are today and never contrast what a real victim looks like from MLK's era. It's sobering to read and watch history so I can better understand how truly incredible lives we live today vs even 50 years ago. In reality, there will always be things that need to be improved. ALWAYS! The world will never be perfect. But we need to do our best daily to improve ourselves, then improve our family situation, then the community and so on. It starts with each of us being grateful for what we have. Then sharing that attitude of gratitude with others. We are so much better than this, as a nation of human beings, as a nation of brothers and sisters regardless of the differences in physical characteristics between us. That's all for now. I love y'all, and pray for your safety & happiness."

Next thing y'all will be saying Breonna Taylor and Daniel Shaver deserved what they got and the police didn't do anything wrong there. My wild take is that most police are good, but we do have a problem where bad ones aren't held accountable to the standards they should be. End qualified immunity, end civil asset forfeiture, keep the budgets the same but put more money into training and less into military gear.

I see your point. Especially lately where people are protesting police shootings that were clearly justified for example. I feel like there's no more ground to cover though. The conversations on BLM, covid, etc have gone on long enough to have the same talking points over and over, I'm just ready to talk about something else while this madness burns out. Plus I don't believe these groups and events are as big and influential as people like to think.
