    It's so telling that you don't have a clue nor even attempt to validate your false claim.

    Same as it ever was.

    Just know that if you are serious people like you will never win. Future generations continually evolve and care less about race. There will always some people like you just less and less as time moves on. Unless you are looking into the distant future.

    But unless you sit down and really reflect on your life and how you want to spend it. You will spend a portion of it wasting your time with thoughts like this. One day you will pass and the memory of you will fade away. And whatever happens after passing I don’t know but if something does happen I would think perpetuating thoughts like this would not be looked kindly on. Being good and spreading positivity would though. Think about that and what you want to leave.

    good luck

    LOL During all this I’ve not heard one mention from the media about the lack of social distancing, the lack of masks or what city will be the next “hot spot” and see a jump in COVID cases. I know call me tone deaf but still.....if it bleeds it leads. If it’s a house party BAD, protest, riot, looting..no mention

    All the rush to assign blame, by all of us, is understandable but misguided.

    Germany argued about the exact cause of the Reichstag fire throughout all of 1933 (before Hitler made the courts a complete joke), and the verdict against the main culprit was overturned multiple times decades later.

    Importantly: in that case, a mentally ill drifter started the fire, definitely claimed he was a communist. But politically, one side (the Nazis) rushed to claim it was a conspiracy of many or all communists (proven later to be false), and anti-Nazi people (they were still there in large numbers in 1933) tried to paint it as a Nazi-concocted plan (a false flag) to help them tighten their control on power. In fact, I think plenty of people still think it was a Nazi false flag plot, but historians haven't found evidence of that! Did they exploit it, you betcha.

    Anyway, in this very different case, those of you saying "all of the above" are probably closest to the truth. Lots of frustrated people in this country with lots of agendas who would love to go f stuff up, especially if not in their own neighborhood. I'm most concerned about foreign involvement. That would literally be (another) attack on our country.

    Was that Minneapolis? It looks like outside Minneapolis city hall but can't tell for sure.

    I haven't seen any mention of this on local news or social media.

    A couple of things.

    First Mayor Carter said in a press conference an hour ago he had mistaken arrest information and that not all of the arrest have been people out of state. Updated arrest info shows that most of them are from MN. What part of MN I haven't seen.

    Next. I didn't see this in person but I did see on a live stream done by Unicorn Riot (a local journalist who has been embedded with the protesters) that there were protesters / rioters with black back packs, sledgehammers, crow bars and power tools. They were seen breaking into a Wells Fargo branch that was later torched.
