    Only lefties are protesting. But make no mistake, this has almost nothing to do with racism.

    you can't have any bad applies in any police force, that is like Westjet saying that they have a few bad pilots that like to crash into mountains sometimes.

    I just didn't realize that technology had come so far that facial recognition could pick out every protestor and match them to their voting record.

    As for your other comment the problem is that, just like every mass protest for the last 50 years, other groups are taking advantage of the situation, and using it for their own agenda/gains, and using the genuine protestors as shields.

    It only takes is one person to turn a protest into a riot. Usually that person never intended on a peaceful protest either. Only personal gain. I guarantee you it isn't only "lefties" looting shops.

    I was interested in tracking how bad police killings in the US has gotten, as I suspected we're probably seeing more amplification to the forefront because of social media vs actually being more. Was pretty surprised that I was mostly correct. Remember, this is all police killings, regardless if it's in the right or wrong. There is no data to track unwarranted police killings.

    https://mappingpoliceviolence.org/nationaltrends

    National average is flat over the last 7 years, while black people being killed by police were actually on a downtrend. Was also curious about the alarming front page stat of 3x more likely for a black person to be killed than a white person so I tried to dig into the # of interactions with police, but none of those stats breaks down by race. The closest I could find were crime rates and incarceration rates, which was a shocking 5x more by black people per capita than white people. So in theory, there are less black people killed per crime than white people.

    Not defending the police here, police violence is definitely a problem in the US, but I don't think black people are being singled out more so than white people, except on social media.

    Already predicting that "I can't breathe" will go down in the history books as what 2020 is known for.

    Seeing many reports of "Proud boys" and other far-right groups spotted trying to mix in, leaving brick piles and agitating the crowds. It's not just outside subversion, in Seattle everything was peaceful until the cops started firing tear gas.
    Yes, its those evil white supremacists....er proud boys grabbing new Air Jordan's in the countless clips that are floating around on Instagram and twitter.

    As with all large scale events, there are going to be shit heads. Nice to hear JR Smith beat someone's ass for breaking his car window. Jon Jones was going after vandals.

    The riots have cause and support what their overall message it. But they need to figure out how to control the idiots because the message is getting lost now.

    Asian racism has received a really big uptick over the last few months because of COVID and that barely makes headlines which is bullshit.

    2020 just keeps delivering. "And now for my next trick..."

    Large scale? You mean like law enforcement in a country of 350 million?

    Are there more shithead protestors than fuckup cops?

    Asian hate was just getting started. Now its definitely back on whitey. In a completely selfish way - Its a little bit of a relief.

    You racist! How dare you suggest that racism against black people is not institutionalized and systematic. lol

    The interesting question is not that black people get killed more by cops, but why the crime statistics are so far skewed towards black people. There is a reason that black people engage in more criminal activity, and it isn't because of the color of their skin. So we need to explore what is causing the underlying issue. The black/cop/crime relationship is a symptom of some other problem which isn't being addressed. When people blame cops for black peoples' problems, they are very confused on the causality.

    This whole thing is a great time for insurance fraud, after the economy tanked from Covid.

    There is no way to truly know the answer to that.

    It was a rhetorical question.

    The rioters are using what is, ultimately, a statistical outlier to steal shit from target.

    You're going to have a lot of opposition on this statement. Lots of historical examples showing earlier colonialism in the US that caused a lot of ideologies that were based on race.
