According to the Bristol Post, there will be an upcoming riot about BLM. There are always some kind of protest held in Bristol, but what's the point? They are breaking the social distancing law. Previously, there was the Greta Thunberg climate protest, that saw the arrival of the silly child. Now there is another one about BLM.

Riots prearranged with the newspaper? I don't think so.

Your conflating the terms 'demonstration' and 'protest' with the term 'riots'. Which is a dangerous and anti-democractic thing to do.
I will say right now though, there are no people who are technically homeless, so they can stop with their food distribution to the homeless b*ll****.

At the end of the day they are essentially the same. But protests and riots do differ a bit, both are about violence, but protests are about something in particular.

I would suggest you educate yourself and think critically about the article you show, as your opinion is laden with ignorance, clear you are falling into a trump-esque view of such protests. Those protesting aren't thugs but those wanting to show solidarity with the black lives matter movement, hugely important to do so at a time when the real thugs... the U.S. Police... kill hundreds of unarmed and innocent blacks each year.

Finally I do suspect there will be a bit of disorder in London & a few other cities over the next few weeks, there's a lot of contributing factors, BLM, Corona, Lockdown, Heat, People just being variously pissed off. Really just a guess though, I suspect the Met will do something racist and stupid and provoke matters.

There's nothing wrong with feeling proud about being white. That doesn't make you racist. Black people do matter, but they matter as much as everyone else. But they shouldn't have to live in fear of being murdered. But being prejudiced against white people, make anyone racist.

Rioting doesn’t do anyone any good. And all lives matter anyway, not just the lives of black people and it is racist towards whites/Hispanics to say so

Anon, I'm not suggesting this, unless you yourself are conflating the idea of supporting the protest as somehow against white people... I don't see this logic. I suggest there's something ignorant with a labelling of the protest as thugs with no care of the cause - the issue here is about killing of unarmed innocent black people by US police. Please refer yourself to the recent case of Floyd George or countless other historical cases of injustice in the US.

I also hope anon acknowledges privilege he holds and power dynamics in racism... i.e. you suggest 'being prejudiced against white people makes one racist'...Reverse racism is a myth because it tries to ignore the fundamental question of who holds more power/privilege between the individuals/groups involved; the myth of reverse racism assumes that racism occurs on a so-called level playing field.

Yet they ruined the livelihood of one black man in particular who had his brand new sports bar he bought damaged by bricks being lobbed at it. Seems very counterintuitive if “black lives” are so much more important than other lives

1. Protests are different to rioting. - protesting in the past has led to significant progress in this exact area - see the civil rights protests of 1956 onwards that led to civil rights act being finally passed in '64 for a pretty striking example.

2. 'all lives matter anyway'; this is not the point of the black lives matter protest. It is to expose the structural inequalities, live experience and violence all black people face on a daily basis. I suggest you do wider reading around the movement before you label this movement through a flawed 'reverse racism' counter-argument.

They’re are countless historical cases of it happening against white people as well, for example a woman who was shot from point blank range by an Arabian cop in the chest despite complying to him. And if you actually looked into the statistics of previous years, you would see that white people are killed more in terms of quantity by US police officers anyway 🧐

1. Historically, blacks are treated worse by US Police forces.

2. You use one unsourced anecdote and extrapolate this to somehow form the basis of your argument...

3. You're incorrect r.e. statistics. see here: https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/in...105741757.html "Black Americans are 2.5 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers."
