Default What do all these protesters hope to gain ?

I'm lost and confused by all of this....
I grew up during segregation and it was a hard time for everyone to sort out.

As remember, it was lots of fighting. If a fight broke out, the blacks were honor bound to help blacks and whites fought with the whites. It was a tough time to be black as it was about a 10% to 90% split.


It took me years to learn that black guys were the same as me, only a different color. I'm serious, until I got out of school I didn't know anything about black guys other than fighting with them.

After school I started working with some black guys and discovered they wanted what I wanted.They had wives and families and just wanted a chance to make a good live for them.
They hunted and fished just like I did. Working in a coal mine is hard work and every black guy I knew pulled his weight. I learned not only to enjoy their companionship, I learned to respect them as men.


These young blacks that are running wild and the folks that are taking a knee to show they hate the country are digging up a snake.

I worry this is going to blow back on my neighbors. Marion county is 38% black.
We have no protests, we have no riots. We have good families raising their kids.
I fear for their safety.


I wish their was a real black leader that I could set down with a plead with him to make the protesters understand what they are doing.

As a Mason I have taken a solemn oath to treat all men equal but all this madness is starting to effect me. Every day I hope it will stop..... but every day it is something new.


I fear we are going to end up in 1950 again. It almost seems like these protesters want a shooting war. Have they live in their inner city so long that they do not realize that they are a minority and that a minority is not the side you want to be on in a shooting war?


I now work overseas, a lot of third world countries. The folks here living on government help have no ideal what their life could be like. The poorest of the poor here would be considered rich in Mozambique.


I guess I'm rambling but I truly am worried.

The gentleman who works on the internet here at the farm is black.
He was out a few weeks ago. As he was leaving he said that he was worried that there was a race war coming and said if one started he was coming to our farm to hide with his family.
We both laughed but there was a little bit of truth.
He knows I have a stock pile of food, guns and ammo to keep it.
It makes me wonder if he does not wish these folks would quit acting up before it blows back on him


All this makes me sad

I think you are correct. Liberal hippie-types have been longing for this sort of battle since the Vietnam protests ended. Now, they have the perfect ingredient for a proxy war. They proclaim to want this fight because they don't know what one is like. It doesn't mater to the white libs because they have their stand-ins. The libs can have their fight and not even get their hands dirty. They will sit on the sidelines and watch the militant blacks and the patriots bang away. They should be careful what they wish for because they just might get it.

Black folks under the age of about 40 have no idea how bad life as a black person was just 50 years ago. They don't realize that they have it really good...if they choose to take advantage of it.
I grew up and now work in a military town, large % black as well as many other nationalities and there is no strife here. No one is going out of their way to disrespect anyone.
The way black folks were treated before the 70's was pretty bad and shameful. But America did what America does....we had a correction ....because Americans as a whole are great people. These ignorant celebs and college professors who perpetuate the myth that America is raciest and unjust would do well to die off before they take us past the brink

Trump was right. They're irrational reaction is not his fault. We had a President tell millions of people they didn't earn what they had. People just rolled their eyes and got back to work. These children disrespect the greatest most free country in the history of the world, a country that gives them the opportunity to make millions throwing a ball and hitting each other. They are SOB's. Just because they handle legit criticism like a teenage girl mad at her father for telling her she can't wear a short dress out, doesn't make it Trumps fault.

Black folks in general have been going backwards since the 1950's primarily due to the breakdown of the family structure. It's much easier to blame your peoples problems on someone else rather than fixing them. It's a major culture problem, nothing more.

Trump was right, his delivery was what was wrong.

If barak had said " You son-ofa-b*tches did't build that!"......you think we would have just rolled our eyes and went back to work?

Most people, yes. Most people fear being labeled a racist. Most of us here don't fall into that category but we have brains and a backbone.

As long as George Soros has money to pay them, they will keep protesting. It's not just blacks. The whole ANTIFA crowd is getting their pay from somewhere.
Follow the money.

Yep, huge sense of entitlement. Its a cultural thing rather than a racial thing, though it follows racial lines. Its sad to see that culture now infecting the American culture and spreading across all races.

The terrorist group BLM is the reason all this started. This is not a problem in Texas for the most part aside from the assassins in Dallas who were inspired by the terrorist group. my friends who are black are just like you and me. They work hard to provide for their families. Now the blacks living off of the government are another matter. I'm getting fed up with all the violence.

According to the Washington Times, Colin Kaepernick’s foundation donated $25,000 to a foundation named convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur.


The $25,000 donation to the Chicago-based group Assata’s Daughters, occurred in April, and was a part of a larger, $1 million pledge.


Shakur was convicted of murdering New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster in 1973 and sentenced to life in prison. However, she eventually broke out of prison and escaped to Cuba, where she continues to live as a fugitive.


Shakur was a member of the militant Black Liberation Army, a group she was active with prior to the murder of Officer Foerster. Members of the Black Liberation Army were also responsible for orchestrating Shakur’s escape in 1979. When several BLA members smuggled guns into Shakur’s prison, during visitation, then took prison officials hostage before fleeing in a van.

I'm 36 and social media is dividing this country faster than anything in the last 40 years. I grew up in Cheek Texas and I was the token white guy.
I had to fight to earn my respect but I also had several black friends that have saved my *** from a beating. Friends are friends and no matter the color I have their back.

^^^These two posts are 100% correct in my opinion^^^

Trump delivered a message that a lot of people have been wanting to hear which in my opinion was and these are my words , "stop disrespecting the flag., the country and more importantly all of the current military members along with the veterans that have sacrificed it all so we can be and remain free". The name calling part was out of line and people have used it as an excuse to protest. Furthermore, Trump should know that a message might be spot on but a bad delivery and or timing will keep the message from being heard.

To the second quoted post, I totally agree and will further state that their are bad people of all races, colors, nationalities and even religions. We must all recognize that bad and evil don't discriminate and afflict people from every corner of this world.

We should all share in your concern. There is an atmosphere with the potential for much greater problems on the horizon unless people start taking personal responsibility/accountability for their actions. We should all have the type of conversations you mentioned with others regardless of their leadership role in a community.

As an American with Mexican roots I do not wish to be held responsible for what a hand full of scamming/bad/evil/ Mexicans have done. I am certain people of all races and or nationalities share this sentiment. When somebody utters "whiles are", "blacks are" or "hispanics are" along with whatever derogatory words you want to add we must all stand up against the people painting with a broad brush.
