    yup. That's cause he's really white inside, but pretend to be a tough black guy.

    He wouldn't have the gut to beat up a strong black man, but no problem stomping on a weak white dude that's already on the ground,

    Imagine what would have happened if this was the reverse and a big white guy over 6'2 and 200 lbs was stomping on a black dude that looked like Gary Coleman.

    That was in front of his house
    ‘I’m the only black guy in the neighborhood’
    absolutely justified

    I don't condone any violence or looting and I don't want to turn this into a D&D thread but you really opened a door. I will be joining George Floyd's family in a Houston protest march tomorrow. Otherwise, I'll just leave you with this quote and not take it any farther:

    "A riot is the language of the unheard." - Martin Luther King

    You too, tinman. We disagree about the importance of the Hakeem statue, or any statue, but I always wish you the best.

    Well, tax dollars paid for the stadium. If it gets damaged, tax dollars would probably be needed to make repairs. I’m guessing they have insurance for riots?

    Well yeah it’s a cheap relic of the less Alexander age
    I would have named the street Dream Street
    There’s no religious object for that
    Plus I would have a massive led projection of clutch city highlights on the side of Toyota center at night
    A majestic bellagio style fountain with a projection on water synchronized to the Houston’s symphony
    Version of cappella ‘u got 2 know’

    I would have a video of the Orlando Magic beating Michael Jordan and the bulls in 95 then getting swept by the Rockets in 95
    It will instill history and be unavoidable

    the truth

    I appreciate your fandom, but I'm having a really hard time caring about basketball or the Rockets right now. In fact, I couldn't care less.

    Fun fact, if the President makes good on his threat of invoking the Insurrection Act, insurance claims will not be paid out. Riots can be covered, but insurrection is not.

    Well the GARM is usually a happier place than the other part of the forum

    When you start caring about basketball again, then that means things are better than they are now

    We must still talk about the Rockets
    this doesn't mean that you have to think about it for 24/7 vs everything else on your mind

    If people want to talk about the Rockets, it's something positive to look forward to
    @Reeko @Os Trigonum @Jontro

    Don't forget brothers, the Rockets were the reason why WE ARE UNITED HERE in the first place

    Not concerned about any of Trump ally Fertitta’s assets. Although if it did burn he in theory would be out of his lease and it’s not like the building will be used for Rockets games any time soon.

    Kicking someone in the head isn’t justified, man. Not after they’re neutralized. I don’t care if you kick him in the gut (technically wrong, but not really deadly). I say this not to protect the man who originally assaulted JR but to protect JR (and anyone else who thinks of kicking someone In the head) from accidentally killing someone with one blow. An assault charge isn’t as bad as manslaughter or murder.


    15 years ago I saw a kid get sucker punched in the side of the head and his head hit the concrete and he immediately went into seizures. It traumatized me. Whenever I see those kind of head shots from defenseless positions I get queezy.
    Side note: is queezy not a word?
