So you say. But I've yet to hear you make a constructive suggestion for how black lives could be treated in the US with the same respect as white lives, which is clearly not happening.

All I hear from you are excuses.

Attorney General William Barr says antifa was responsible for the looting and violence that cities across the U.S. witnessed early on in protests against George Floyd’s murder and police brutality against Black Americans.However, federal court records show out of the 51 people facing federal charges, no one is alleged to have ties to the antifa movement, according to an NPR review.

Not really. ActBlue is a platform that many democratic candidates and movements use, to manage their fundraising for them. I, for instance, make small donations to a handful of senate and house candidates. Most of them have (presumably) subcontracted their fundraising through ActBlue. So BLM seem to be doing the same thing, seems eminently sensible. Obviously, it’s not a “slush fund.” It’s a bit like GoFundMe, but specifically for democratic candidates & other causes.

I was kind of hoping that nobody would take the bait a post anything here, since this is appears to be just another platform for paulry's windups.

BS always needs to be called out, otherwise the naive are likely to believe the lack of counterpoint as the BS being fact, when it isn't....

And you're not at all naive.

In case decent, moderate people were ever in any doubt about the horrific agenda that the extreme left has for Western nations, the events of these last few weeks has put them in absolutely no doubt about it now. Of course you can't see it, but congratulations mate, those you support have completely red-pilled us all!

But it's not too late for you to redeem yourself. Take this:

Do you have something with actual writing...

Preferably from someone with more than 26 YouTube followers...

Writing that he's actually read or just writing that has words he likes in the headline?

You do need to be specific you know.

I am so confused over what is now the correct way to be, act and think.. It makes my head spin. The only thing I can do is quote Frank Zappa "Hey you know something people I'm not black But there's a whole lots a times I wish I could say I'm not white."

It's sad that you feel that way, but it sums up well what is going on - especially these last couple of months. We who live in countries that have evolved to be among the greatest, the most accepting and welcoming - the kindest countries in existence on this planet. Countries where everyone of all races are bending over backwards to come and join. We are being shamed for what we have achieved, blamed for practices we outlawed well over a hundred years ago - the only civilisation ever to have outlawed it (and which incidentally continues to occur elsewhere - even to this day), and made to feel guilty for the colour of our skins - on the grounds that a bunch of people in our countries back then were slave owners or involved in the slave trade in some way. Never mind the truth that probably all of us at some stage our ancestors were slaves, indentured workers, serfs, tenant farmers or forced-labourers. So now we have an ideology that has pretty much completed a long slow march through our institutions including educational ones and has produced people who are ideologically-brainwashed to hate the great nations that we have built. Called us racists while they themselves have done their damnedest to divide us racially. Claiming we should atone for something that we never did - that we are oppressors, while at the same time these people seek to oppress our free speech, force compliance and subservience. Shit, now we even have videos emerging of whites in the US who have been racially shamed submitting to flagellation and being led through the streets as trophies of shame. Police free zones of lawlessness, full of intimidation and increases in murder, and those who are charged with protecting and enforcing our laws now turning a blind eye and in some cases cheering it on. Yeah, sad days all round - especially for Americans. But don't worry, truth and justice will prevail. Better days are ahead and we'll emerge out of this stronger.

Man organises plane flying a "white lives matter" banner. "I'm not racist" he says.
"We were not trying to offend the movement or black people."

Then, on Facebook, "I'd like to take this time to apologise .. TO ABSOLUTELY F ** NOBODY!
Not that he's trying to offend anyone of course.
It gets more awkward when he's revealed to be an English Defence League supporter, with a history of derogatory terms for people who might be from Pakistan but may not and is pally with Tommy Robinson.
His long time girlfriend describes where she lives as like a foreign country and says "immigrants should be sent back to their country of origin on their banana boats, stinkin b******s.” Not racist though.

Just your ordinary everyday pose.
