    lol...its fine, its not a big deal. I knew who you were referring to. If it was something conspiracy related, id probably be guilty. : )

    But, you were right. It would be better for me to have a conversation with those protesters than make assumptions on why they're doing it.

    The latest protest was held a few blocks my residence and I wanted to see things firsthand. This country has an issue with race and I don’t ever see it getting better. As I was walking home, a White man was questioning whether or not two minority members lived in the neighborhood. Then, he looked at me and said, you can’t live here either. He then demanded that I tell him my area code and street name. Totally unacceptable! On my way home, I passed several White people and not one time did I think to question their local residency. I’m outraged by the looters and I’m equally outraged by the actions of that guy!

    A whole lot of assumptions here. Earlier, you shared that racism isn't a real problem. Now you're saying that those participating in peaceful protests don't actually support the cause, perhaps because they're white.

    I have a suggestion. The next time you pass a group of peaceful protestors like that, pull over and spend a few minutes talking with them rather than assuming you know why they're there and what they're thinking. You may be surprised by what you learn.

    POST EDITED TO CORRECT AN ERROR. I HAD ATTRIBUTED A COMMENT TO rennigade THAT WAS ACTUALLY MADE BY SOMEBODY ELSE. MY APOLOGIES TO rennigade FOR DOING SO!

The first thing I thought to myself...If I could find out each one of their names and check their social media accounts, I would bet my life that all of them have pictures of themselves protesting, holding signs, and posting comments on inequality. They were doing nothing but social posturing. They did it because its cool and they want people to like what they're doing.

    Here is something I read on another site that pretty well sums things up, in my opinion:

    I believe most of those protestors can care less about George Floyd. I think many just want to feel as if they belong to some sort of social justice movement and others are just a bunch of animals looking to destroy property and steal.
    We have the fake news, we now have FAKE OUTRAGE .
    I don't believe racism is a big problem, but I do believe its a money maker for a lot of news organizations, colleges, and politicians.
    I do believe many blacks dislike whites. There is racism everywhere and there always will be. But as I said, its not nearly as bad as the media purports it to be.
    The black culture is self destructive and needs to be addressed by individual blacks and black leaders. Why isnt it? There is a lot of money to be made in the business of racism.
    That is the real problem with black lives matter. People thinking that Racism is not a big problem. It is. There is an undercurrent that has been perpetually there. I don't think that violence is the answer but I wonder if we are meant to go down that path? That prior change was also lead by violence? I don't know and yes where I am it is major rioting. I believe it's due to people trying to capitalize to the "Racism" problem and instead they are taking back and taking from the "rich" because the opportunity has presented itself.

    I inventoried my supplies: 2,000 rounds of .223, 1,000 rounds of 9mm, 250 rounds of .38sp, 500 rounds of 20ga 01 buckshot. I also looked up the laws for deadly force in OH. Weird times.

    High speed pursuit of black sedan Dodge challenger with looters threw out an orange flourescent bag they hit a pharmacy in Van Nuys, 2 passengers jumped out helicopter following driver. LAPD was chasing but may have backed off due to reckless driving on Van Nuys Blvd, aggressive driving on opposite side of road. News helicopter still following. Going thru Burbank & Panorama City. Blending in traffic but agitated driving. Hope they catch him, I need to start cooking my dinner.
