    Probably some stupid college students wrote that. They do the same crap here. It's usually not coming from the black community itself. Most of the activists saying really crazy things at these rallies (they were chanting "abolish the police!" here a few days ago) appear to be college students and they're getting these radical ideas from campus or online. "BIPOC" is yet another alphabet soup acronym that only activists know and use, especially since it's rather new. Many of them are white, themselves. A white person may have written that, and likely did.

    Too bad Floyd's brother wasn't consulted on how he would like his brother to be remembered.

    Personally I'd be respectful and sensitive in such an area and would view it as a 'sacred' area because someone died under tragic circumstances.

    It's rather peculiar on how masking is mentioned since covid has nothing to do with what happened there. That seems a bit detached.

    I agree it's something that people will have to deal with till the end of humanity.

    It brought to mind huge swaths of people I left behind in Indiana,the type who would show up and make a scene by insisting "all lives matter," and then ramble on about how easy black allegedly have it and all the benefits and perks, and all they do is "keep popping out babies."

    I do believe all lifes matter, But the way black people have been treated in the world, not only today but for generations, i honestly feel they have their right to speak up and say to white people that Black lifes matter just as much as white life matter

    Of course all lives matter, but the MidWest is so racist it managed to appropriate that and turn it racist. Now instead of being a call for unity, it's a rally cry against them uppity negroes.:rolleyes:

    It’s a “dog whistle” right?
    Like coded language to give oneself plausible deniability whilst actually trying to put forth hateful rhetoric.

    I remember learning about that tactic in history class lol
