Magically, COVID-19 (the "deadly" disease that has killed less than 1% of the world's population) isn't an issue anymore since the protests began. Funny how that works.

Starting a race war is now juicier for the politicians and mainstream media.

so you think the protests are fake?

you don’t believe there’s racial injustice in this country??
Nah its not a either/or situation.

The George Floyd situation is a tragedy. One that happens every day unfortunately whch is why all of this si finally coming to a head.

However, now that this si the new juicy news story that's getting news ratings, suddenly coronavirus isnt gonna wipe out the world like the media had you believe up until last week.

You always follow the money and there's a lot more money to be made off BLM and the exploiting racial tension in the US.

You're a smart dude. I'm sure you can see there is more than meets the eye in all of this. Fear & emotion = $$$

i understand what you’re insinuating

i guess my question is whether you believe systemic racism and white supremacy is as huge an issue as the media is making it out to be or whether you think the extent of it is being overblown.
To answer your question: not at all. I do question how genuine a lot of people are about their outrage over some shit that as been happening for hundreds of years though. Both authority and white people who think the thing to do is post up a black box to feel like they are standing up for their black friends. Not all, but many.

i noticed you didnt partake in blackout tuesday........to me, it's more a symbol of solidarity and displaying understanding in the depth of the system in place. a lot of people truly believe white supremacy is a made up thing and have no idea why black people are upset right now.
I think its great that these discussions are taking place now and I feel that people will have a better understanding of systemic racism now. A lot of people really don't get it and think because "I have a black friend" or "we had a black president" means all problems have been solved.

Now I didn't participate in #blackouttuesday because I don't do sheep things. You're not gonna see me do a #challenge or TikTok dance either. Most people posting black boxes didn't even realize that they were hurting the BLM movement by drowning out week/months/years of BLM info with a bunch of black boxes. Whoever organized that one didn't think it through lol.

Speaking of the BLM movement, if I really wanted to ruffle some feathers I am not the biggest proponent of BLM to begin with. That is a whole nother discussion though.

no lockdown. it's a short-sighted overeaction from the political class with the by-product being a fertile testing ground seeing where people are with authority. and we have the answer it's not good news when they want to put the squeeze on with a police state. 99% will just roll over and accept it with no cohesive reasoning, any old bogeyman will suffice if it's for the 'greater good'. as someone said earlier the virus has killed few people of reasonable age without serious existing conditions. nowhere near enough to where you would close down entire economies to protect. advising the most vunerable to isolate was the correct response and everyone could have chipped in to make sure those people got their essentials. fraction of the cost the lockdown.

the economic fallout will damage people's lives far more than the virus ever could. good news is collapse of the IMF$ system is now firmly on the horizon, bad news is normal people without access to a printing press will be far poorer with inflation on essential goods. going to be a turning point one way or the other pretty soon.
