  1. Why is “racism” connected to the tragic death of George Floyd? Is there any evidence that racism had anything to do with it?

    • The evidence is clearly found when you open a pair of eyes that are not blinded by hatred. If you truly refuse to see something so blatantly obvious in terms of repeated and systematic difference in treatment and attitude, then it’s time for serious self-reflection.

    • Black people have been murdered for the “crime” of selling loose cigarettes; telling undercover cops in NYC to f’off when they tried to get him to buy drugs; jogging; and (allegedly) passing a counterfeit $20. OTOH, an avowed racist Dylan Roof murdered congregants in a BLACK church and the cops took him to Burger King.

      • NYC case had to do with Authoritarian so-called Progressive/Liberals try force big Government. Note: Most cops there are not White.

        I admit to have bias toward cops because most military buddies are law enforcement. I did serve military law enforcement for 4 years before changing my rating (MOS).

        These riots have dozen Black people: cops, retire cops, looters, and innocent bystanders.
        Note: 1,000’s small and independent by Blacks and non-whites were burn-down, and also I am small business with my immigrant family (from Uruguay, Argentina and El Salvador).

  2. Remember when people were up in arms because Qatar was selected to host the World Cup despite their human rights record ?
