    If blacks are treated different by police and even by society in general due to the stereotype of blacks being thugs and criminals these riots with looting and burning do nothing but reinforce the stereotype and aggravate whatever bias may or may not exist. I myself fight the urge to buy into the stereotype but events like this make it harder to do and even I start to wonder if blacks are just savages dressed in human clothes.

    It’s just straight up nihilism. Destruction of the good for the sake of destroying it. Facilitated by the progressive left.
    I’m in Trinidad right now, an island nation of 90% black. It’s just as peaceful here as anything with people going on about their daily lives.
    Dangerous ideas kill nations regardless of race.

    I think it is difficult for a group to keep hope when it gets snatched from them.

    Since Trump took office, "his appointees at the Justice Department have all but eliminated the federal government's police reform work. The Civil Rights Division's police practices group has shrunk by half, and it hasn't opened any major pattern-or-practice investigations that could rein in police departments that regularly violate constitutional rights. The Trump administration [also] effectively killed a collaborative reform initiative created by DOJ's Office of Community Oriented Policing Services that allowed cities to voluntarily implement reform, a move that left the local officials who had partnered with DOJ feeling abandoned."

    Which has nothing to do with riots, arson and looting by blacks because a cop that is in jail charged with murder killed a black man

    Half the peaceful protesters are white not half the arsonist and looters. A few are and they are ANTIFA .

    We are all equal. White people can be stupid too. They would be the ones you see rioting.

    No - it has nothing to do with criminal activity, but everything to do with the protests.

    When hope is lost, everything is lost.

    Who cares what race they are? If they are damaging businesses and personal property, and injuring people, they are criminal scum. Why do you keep bringing up race?

    They are just human beings and too many of them are stuck in a culture that encourages all too many of them to be chronic unachievers and even losers. The political Left -- for a variety of reasons -- functions as their enablers so that only a modest percentage of them relative to their over all population reach desirable goals. I will point out that with each generation more and more Blacks are turning their backs on the leftist siren song to be slackers and are reaching for the stars with a certain amount of success. That's encouraging.

    Do bear in mind that many of the Blacks protesting are doing so peacefully. It's mostly only as the sun is setting that the slackers and losers and chronic unachievers and outright thugs hit the streets to destroy and loot, burn, and victimize.

    Looting and arson are wrong. Killing unarmed Black men is wrong.
    Why is it that one event upset you and the other does not?

    Why would you assume the killing of the black man didn’t upset me? The cop that did it is in jail facing murder charges . What more do you want?

    Sure start a thread on that. This threads about looting and burning by blacks perpetuating a stereotype.

    And racist Black policemen and racist -- suitably BROWN -- Hispanic policemen and Asian policemen. But they don't fit the narrative of the political Left, do they?

    I sometimes wonder if the policemen who kill unarmed Black men are savages.

    Have the deaths of other Black men at the hands of the police upset you?

    In Madison, WI, it was mostly white girls and a few pro's dressed in black with black masks and black backpacks.
