    Floyd's case is not first time.
    US white people discriminate against the black.
    US white people are racist.

    Many of them are, yes. Fortunately, many are not.

    and

    US black people are racist.

    and
    as long as that is the window of perception
    the divide will remain

    Well good thing every black person in America who doesn't yet have a criminal record is entitled to own lots of big, powerful guns. The whole purpose of being allowed that is to defend one's self from the police in case they impose state-sponsored tyranny, and also if King George invades.

    Not significantly.
    They don't have the power.
    They are, of course, like all raised from infancy in America, racially bigoted to some degree. Comes with the territory.
    As in most real world circumstances, the degree matters. A lot.
    Nothing goes away because one closes their eyes.

    A black person somewhere said something racist about whites. I'm going to pretend that gives me an intelligent excuse to not support any changes to the social and political status quo.

    It looks as if the US is well on its way to getting a monarch back, as things stand. Though possibly one more in the mould of Henry VIII than George III.

    As long as he looks like me and enables me to do whatever I personally want regardless of how it affects anyone else, I'll be happy even to take Charlemagne!

    If Joe Biden wins because of this crap and the Russians can't fix it, we're going Vince McMahon in 2024!

    I'm actually not joking about the Vince McMahon bit, I expect him to at least run for the Republican ticket in 2024, so I'm just posting that here so I can say I called it.

    The black people suffer more during this Covid pandemic.
    Their emotions just burst.

    The Floyd George killing is outrageous as are the many other examples of police violence but people should really learn to not argue with police or resist them.

    Most people know that and things turn out much better for them. No one should have to be that careful but that's just the way it is. Don't resist the police and call a lawyer after you are out of the streets and away from the offending cop.

    Doing that would save more lives than any protesting will ever accomplish.

    Racism bespeaks a limited or lazy mind.
    In it's simplest form, it is seeking the goyim-- identifying one's self via identifying the other.
    In the long run,
    one must ask oneself just exactly what kind of world/culture/society one would choose to live in with a serious apraisal of just what is possible in the world as it is.
