It has been co-opted buy ignorant young white far-left extremists and has resulted in violence AGAINST POC and their communities/businesses.
So no, I wont take a knee. But I would also take my gun and stand guard in front of a minority-owned business if they asked for help.

Protests and change are good. Destroying communties and inciting us v them cop vs citizen wars is not.
I also believe a LOT of the violence we are seeing is a direct resul of Covid lockdowns and has little if anything to do with George.
Which is what I've been sayin all along. Destroyin the economy was always goin to cause worse outcomes than the disease itself.
Protests started about George. But the violence has its roots in 1) far left and far right extremists 2) criminals using protests as cover and 3) frustrated citizens who
feel like society left them abandoned in the wake of lockdowns "stay home save lives" bs.
I am aware some of my comments here will alienate some TA friends. I will be posting a blog to more thoroughly flesh out my thoughts.
I also dont believe in inherent privilege or lack thereof based on race. Privilege is based on economic status. Those born rich have it.
Those born poor do not. Those born middle class may or may not have some at birth, but work hard to gain more or f*ck off and wind up losing it thru their decisions.
Just as some born poor scrap and law their way to wealth, and with that wealth privilege.
Of course all of this applies mainly to USA and to a lesser extent westernized countries.
Those with the misfortune of birth in places like Syria, North Korea, China, etc. experience a completely differen world and set of rules.
Yeah, these several comments that you wrote here could have been the start of a blog. But regardless, I understand what you're saying and I agree with you.
I see a lot is on your mind.
Yep. I'm just so sick and tired of the far left and far right extremists dictating the prevailing narrative, while normal, decent people r afraid to speak out due to fear
I would, if still available
