    Discussing the scope of police brutality will be well beyond the scope of discussion on this thread. Police brutality runs deep for many generations in the black community. I do agree w you on the social welfare program etc. I also think the act in kneeling is greatly misunderstood. I think if people would sit down with a group of African americans and learn why they do it, they would at least understand why we do it. If the person still doesn't agree, they at least attempted to learn.
    I agree, this is not the forum to discuss this. If you would like to discuss it through PM, I'd be happy to. I like to get different points of view. Too often we are left with options of either discussing things in echo chambers or trolling someone else's echo chamber; neither of which appeal to me. Well....trolling can be fun sometimes; but ultimately pointless beyond personal amusement.

        Just remember that just because someone is against their protest, doesn't mean they are against what they are trying to accomplish.
        I feel this statement goes a very long way in describing why there is such a degree of diversion. When I returned from Indo-China to find certain methods of protests (e.g. flag burning) I was appalled. Not because I disagreed with the message sent (that being we were usurping the yellow man and needlessly killing many). To the contrary, having seen it first hand, I was in total agreement with, and supported the cause, but could not bring myself to agree with the method(s) used.

        To each his own, but it seems logical one can support the cause without supporting the method.

          Sounds like a good idea, can you add me to the group?
