Rioting and looting aren't great but how many people are we going to let get killed by a militarized police force fighting a war against us.


LOL

I've never been arrested or had a speeding ticket. Not hard to avoid police interaction if you just don't break the law.
I'm also not black so I'm a racist, bigot I guess who has never been profiled.

Everyone agrees we can be better, always room for improvement. Nobody is perfect. Now everyone can go home, right?

No. It seems those demonstrating need someone to blame, someone else needs to take action to improve their lot in life, and someone else needs to pay for their difficulties. It doesn't seem they're interested in taking responsibility and controlling the one thing they can control, themselves. Gotta blame others. The blame game mindset is rampant everywhere tbh.

People have been killing each other for all sorts of reasons for thousands of years. It sucks, but rioting and putting a black box on social media aren't going to suddenly make a racist not racist IMO. It's bigger than that. People are either raised a certain way or learn to be that way through their experiences. I can appreciate the effort people are doing to try to end it but it's going to take generations of education and just being decent humans to change this. We unfortunately haven't proven we can do that yet.

Motivating people to self educate themselves is key to curing most of our issues imo

I love how we've gotten to the point where "injustice" and a "systemically racist police force" are simply foregone conclusions now.

Floyd's anecdotal death is "proof" that this happens every single day and if you have the audacity to argue otherwise you will be destroyed.

Can they both piss you off around the same? Those looters are using the dead black man to score free stuff- that’s way down there in scumville to me.

If you think it's okay for rioters to kill a 70+ year old black man that was just guarding a pawn shop, you're part of the problem.

Who said I wasn't upset about the guy dying?

I mean if we're going to start using incidents to justify things then I'll throw a beer bottle through your window the next time Arkansas loses. After all, you have insurance right?

Not going to happen when a large % of your population deems education as useless brainwashing propaganda. A large group of Arkansans hate education and it shows in our state's performance. There is a reason why we have to go out of state for good students.

compare the remediation rates of The University of Arkansas to the other institutions who accept more Arkansans:

Beyond that I believe that society is too invested in 2 party politics to ever find a middle ground. People on both sides treat politics like a game. It's their team vs. yours and any fact that goes against their beliefs is "propaganda" or "fake news".

People in Arkansas are more likely to be critical about the Razorbacks than they are about their political affiliation and leaders. They'll defend their political party to the depths of hell but trash the Razorbacks in the sake of being a "realist". If anything it should be reversed. Every politician, leader, law enforcer should be under constant scrutiny. Their job performance impacts our daily lives. If you refuse to be a sunshine pumper or homer about the Razorbacks then you need to apply the same logic to your political party and leaders.

re: 6/5 Riot In-game Thread
If you are going to defend the rioters, you have to be willing to let them destroy your house, place of business, or property. If you are not willing to let them destroy your stuff, but are okay with them destroying other peoples stuff, well there's a term for that.

Moot point though. Nobody defending the rioters owns any property, they live with mom.

I said self education, not organized education. Big difference.

Some organized education could be seen as a variation of brainwashing propaganda because the people doing the teaching many times have an agenda while they're teaching.
