SconnieAlright fine, you little fuckers.
When did I say that BLM protesters had anything to do with killing police officers? Never? That's what I thought.
They are blocking highways, which is illegal... and creating a big inconvenience for people that are actually successful and don't live off of welfare checks. They are violent. I just watched a video of protesters bashing a car door in as the driver was trying to get by. These people are attacking whites for no reason whatsoever.
The point is the small Inconvenience of getting stuck in a traffic jam is nothing compared to being a poc living in a society structured on insitutional racism. Yes black people are angry, but they have every right to be. That being said, acts of violence are extremely uncommon within the movement. At every protest ive attended, any acts of violence have been instigated by white anarchists taking advantage of the movement, or poc who also weren't aligned with the movement though I would view their actions as more justifiable. Anytime this occured, those white anarchists or other violent protesters were immediately surrounded by other protesters and forced to stop. Furthermore I would argue that when the police show up to peaceful protests in full riot gear, this can create a sort of self fulfilling proficy, not only because the police tend to follow this up by violently antagonizing protesters, but also because police dressed in riot gear at a peaceful protest sometimes attracts violent people that normally wouldnt attend a peaceful protest.
