Nobody has said that. And I thought the first post was pretty clear about the “all lives matter” stuff. That’s not the topic here.
Often those weren’t the protesters.
They were people taking advantage of a situation and were not connected to the protests except to use them as a cover or an excuse.
I see and value everyone equally. People are people, skin color is nothing to me. Just how I was raised and what my faith teaches. With that, I somewhat naively have the knee-jerk reaction that ALM like others have said. I’m not coming from any bad place with that, it’s honestly how I feel and so I think we ought to be careful by saying anyone who responds ALM is racist....I certainly am not.
Having that said, I do think I have been sheltered from racism throughout my life with the exception of a few guys I knew in college and so I haven’t seen much of it personally in my 43 years...not in my social circles which include many good black and hispanic friends, but also understand my anecdotal experience doesn’t constitute reality and so I’m learning and understanding more about where we are as a country as time passes and seeing that I have been sheltered.
That aside, I’m not sure where the logic of destroying property of innocent people/business and showing complete disregard for the law and rights of others is somehow justified and, in the minds of those committing these crimes, should result in improvement/advancements in race relations and the rights of blacks. It’s counterproductive and totally illogical.
