    It's one of the sleaziest cards from the Nixon southern strategy deck and your side plays it so well.

    So if 70% of the Police force were Black, they wouldn't be rioting?

    All I've seen from you and your right-wing buddies on this thread is hate.
    It becomes you as usual .

    So is it more important to have good, competent cops or to have a police force that is composed, racially, equivalent to the local demographic without regard to competence?

    If, in a 70% black precinct, only 1% of the applicants for the police force are black should local blacks simply be conscripted to become cops or should the size of the police force be reduced until racial equivalency is met by willing applicants?

    Right wing hate?

    You have to in the right wing to know looting and causing damage is wrong?

    As a matter of fact, I haven't seen anything from the right wing here.

    This discussion boils down to law abiding citizens against criminals.

    Which side do you fall on?

    No, you don't. You want to keep them right where they are and oppressed, that way you can promise them "social justice" and they'll keep voting democrat. You certainly don't want them to reach parity and become mainstream. You don't have the votes to elect a president on your own, independents and republicans jumped the fence for that to happen. Same with the Civil Rights Act. In fact you'd be best to educate yourself and look at the vote tallies by party on that one.

    I agree. The "tells you all you need to know" post was BS.

    Those that are listening are saying that violence and destruction of other innocent citizens property and lives is detrimental to their plight. I'm not sure where the desperation comes from it's been 4 days - the legal system may take up to a year or longer to wade through this. Continued violence is counterproductive.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
