I mean that's fine, I just don't think you are going to get very far if you are talking to black activists and you insist on having strong opinions on things which internally divide the movement. you are going to be told to be quiet

I did used to think more like who can tell me what I have a right to form an opinion on, how can I be expected to just not be critical and form a strong perspective on information I come across

but it has been expressed to me enough times that this is not a good look

I'm not talking to black activists here nor was me questioning how much of a win a street painted really is a very strong opinion, otherwise sure, true.

as always, but more and more lately, I'm so fucking glad I don't live in the US

even as a straight white male, I don't want to be dealing with the fact that the shit happening there is also part of the society I'm supposedly a part of

Actually, neither do I at this point.
Took! We need an editor to mark where we lost the plot.

I'll think about the issue of internally deviding movements though because I have a tendency to end up exactly there. Doesn't matter if it's with Dem voters fighting each other or differing opinions here, somehow I step right into that mess time and again. Jews, too. It takes 2 minutes and I'm smack in the middle of BUT ANTI ISRAEL DOESN'T MEAN ANTISEMITISM vs YES IT DOES.

that's not a great article

basically when people agree on most things very small things get magnified. e.g., all the different protestant denominations
not that the mural is a small thing but remember, we're all on the same team

Were they saying it in a "huh that's weird and counterintuitive, I wonder why the stock market goes up after these events" way, or a "this proves that these events aren't so bad after all" kind of way?

Did they acknowledge that there are so many other variables in an economy that could contribute to the rise of the S&P 500 and that this is likely coincidental? Like, I'm sure I could also pick four mass shootings or celebrity marriages or volcano eruptions that coincided with a rise in the stock market and run a headline about that.

Can somebody give a thumbnail sketch of the disband police depts theory for someone who checks this and a video game board and AP and that’s about it?

Sorry, im friekin dumb about that, never heard of it before. So like who takes everyone to jail then? Is it like neighborhood watch? Do we give the braver younger ones bats or guns and let them stay up late on the old folks’s lawns watching for unknown cars etc.?

Thanks

Sorry

It's going to make movies more confusing, that's for sure. As it is, I struggle with the concept of the FBI and the police and the ATF and the DEA and everybody else all being enemies but also not enemies depending on which other department the love interest works for.

the mayor commissioning the street sign and naming a street Black Matter Lives Plaza doesn't matter when she is increasing funding to the police and taking it away from other social programs

Awesome, thanks

So basically rethink routine societal problems as more of a public health than a public safety issue, then redirect a bunch of $$$/jurisdiction we’re now giving to the police to to like health care people and social workers etc. and if u do think u need a small band of ladies/men with badges/guns to protect the public, start over with a culture of don’t terrorize the most vulnerable and poverty-stricken populations

Yeah sounds pretty good, can we do that do we think? Guess we need to win a butt ton of elections first
