    Yeah, but in the video I saw, he also blamed racism.

    Name two minority owned business destroyed. I showed so far most of the ones they listed that were destroyed are not minority owned. They may work there but they don't own it.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    BS. Every poor neighborhood in the world has a street gang.

    You know I agree that rioting and looting is bad so let's focus and denounce it but I am just asking to not pretend like minorities owned the ones listed in the article. Let's call it how it is and denounce it all and how they are hurting the communities and the businesses who are innocent.

    So you're wondering why street gangs are stupid and they don't learn to respect their community? What sense does that make. It's like complaining that water is wet.

    Ooohh... why don't hardened drug-addled street gangs understand the importance of building communities?!

    Sure. Righteous anger at the corporate salve masters is justified. It's good to burn down your plantation every once in a while just to show the bastards that you can.

    Of course it kind of sucks for old lady Jane to have to walk an extra 2 miles to get her prescription filled because you burned the Walgreen that was just a block from her. It's also kind of a bummer that Dollar Store is is now another dollars worth of gas away. But, hey! At least you showed those bastards who's boss.

    That's what I was doing, until I had to take the time to mull over the nitpickiness going on. And frankly you don't know that no minorities own those businesses.
