    This one is about excessive police responses, not 50 or 150 years ago.

    The state continues to pay considerable amounts of money to finance the teaching of religion in teacher education colleges.

    It's a piece of cloth and a tune. According both some kind of untouchable honour is just the most primitive of patriotism. The protestors here have an issue with the the real world manifestation of the proudly espoused principles that are meant to underpin the two tokens in question, and a highly valued freedom of expression they are entitled to exercise. Trump's different reactions to white supremacists supporting racial injustice and black citizens protesting it is yet another sad and sorry measure of the man.

    When you assume..... (just you, not me).
    Your OP is drowning in spite.

    Poor snowflake

    Next time just title it uppity n*ggers getting uppity.

    Really. Well lets take the textbook example: Ferguson. The White Mayor of that majority Black town was re-elected after those shootings. Clearly many Blacks do not share the BLM version of the facts behind some of these shootings. Then the NC police shooting last year that led to the HRC campaign criticising "implict bias" in the police.l Shortly after that was said, it emerged the shooter was in fact a Black police officer. Again debunking the BLM narrative.

    I think there are some localised problems with racist cops and the solution are Patten-style reforms - except the cops do need to keep guns for self defence because America is full of them. Also the recently passed NC law banning the public from viewing bodycams needs to be repealed (fat chance with the GOP control of the legislature).

    Very, very many do not agree with you, I would suggest the vast majority of Americans and you alienate them with that attitude, but if that's your idea of hearts and minds, work away.


    The essential difference here is I think the difference between demanding respect for me, me, me and demanding respect for others and imo you don't do that by disrespecting anyone.

    Good to see you've finally come into this century on it! I don't share their views but it is a response to recent events not long-forgotten ones.

    Unbelievable!

    Try being less simplistic and binary. Not all the protesters are African-American and many African-Americans have criticized their actions.

    Are they or their opinions "arseholes" (your word) because they refuse to adhere to your dumbed-down worldview?

    Well considering you lived at the coal face....


    Oh, no wait you're just some Irish person who doesn't have the slightest clue what it might be like to be raised black in the US but more than happy to demonstrate your ignorance.

    Time and time again.
