Y’all: Rioting and looting doesn’t do anything.
Historians: The only thing in history that has worked for the general public inciting change has been a riot,a protest, or a looting- like the Civil Rights Movement, Suffragettes, and Stonewall.
Y’all: Well, violence isn’t the answer
Historians: MLK was peaceful and you still shot him dead, and America is one of the most historically violent countries in the world, how ironic.
JUST SAY YOU DON’T SUPPORT BLACK LIVES MATTER AND LEAVE instead of finding an excuse as to why you shouldn’t care that again and again and again Black people are completely brutalised by police and police are never criminalized for it.
Copied and pasted from a friend. Feel free to do the same and call out racists where they stand.
hey since this is getting a solid amount of traction could y'all check out this post and let people know thank you
@mercurythedragon liberals are very happy to police your movements optics if it means they don't have to deal with their own biases
@spacekookie exactly. it's gross how democrats continuously pretend they're not centerist as hell with their white supremacist bullshit
"...the white moderate, who is more devoted to 'order' than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice [...] who constantly says: 'I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action'; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom."
@mercurythedragon more than riots and looting, they were rebellions and uprisings
Remember what Machiavelli said about unarmed prophets; they always come to grief.
@Hyolobrika honestly covid just came by, racism has been a supremacist thorn in our society's side for centuries on top of the being the main reason why cases and deaths of covid are so disproportionately fucked between people who can afford it and people who cant bc of supremacy
Your confident ignorance weighs little against a lifetime of niche knowledge.
Pick any topic you know, or are interested in, and you're advantaged over someone who skims the wikipage on the topic.
For example, you might want to consider the antivaxxer movement as "societal", but it has deep implications for medical science.
Seriously, think about it.
There's no way to decouple social and medical pandemics, the science applies heavily to both.

Respectfully, rethink your stance, or accept that you're undereducated here...or don't.
This post isn't for you.
It's for all of us who know you're spouting bullshit, and have been gently trying to get you to check your fecking privilege.
@Hyolobrika it's honestly just the fact of people blaming them on protesters when it's from the people who did all the shit dining out and getting haircuts before all of this. It's just the fact of people truly standing up for what they believe in and having folks look down on folks now after their blatant disregard of people's health before
@Hyolobrika yeah it doesn't. who said it didn't spread it?
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
