Apparently George Floyd and Derek Chauvin worked as security at a nightclub with overlapping shifts and may have known each other.

I don't know either and I had no problem with the kneeling.

The first is the guy who started the kneeling. The second is a racist fuckwit mouthpiece for Trump.

For once, I feel similarly to Lahren. I don't know how the rioting and looting in Minneapolis has addressed injustice. It certainly didn't stick it to the man.

The rioting only started after the police attacked peaceful protestors with tear gas.

The point, however, of the reply tweet is that it doesn't matter how POCs protest, white folk are going to complain and be more outraged at protests than the cause of the protests.

I have no idea what the timeline of events is. Assuming it's true that no rioting or looting occurred prior to police using tear gas, I still don't understand how looting and arson achieved justice in this case. I don't get it. It hardly made a point or imposed obstacles for the powerful white folk of Minneapolis.

Are there going to be white peeps who gripe no matter how black people protest injustice? Yup. Especially in Minnesota. It's white as fuck.

And of course he couldn't help using the racially charged word 'thug'.

thug is a racially charged word now? I thought any connection with the Indian thuggee would be long forgotten.

Apparently a CNN crew just got arrested live on camera.

CNN crew on-site arrested after standing where they were told. Lead reporter? A black man.

Another crew, with a white lead reporter, treated very differently.

What a fucking mess.

Jesus! Looks like there's more to that Trump tweet than I'd thought.

After midnight, the president threatened a violent response. “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump added, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” quoting the controversial Miami Police chief Walter Headley who became infamous in the 1960s for his aggressive tactics in putting down black youths he claimed were taking advantage of civil rights legislation.

Arrested live on TV too, with a bullshit excuse to arrest, wtf is wrong with those cops?! It looks like the sort of behaviour that wouldn't be out of place in Moscow.

Unbelievable.

As far as I could tell, they weren't even read their rights.
