This was the view from my house in philly just a few hours ago before the sun went down. The rioting is serious and the whole sit is on fire now!
I cant believe I'm dealing with this shit and was called racist and "victim blaming" for say calling our rioters as immoral actors! My fucking city is on fire now!
Yea im the bad guy for calling shame on people bur ing down innocent peoples homes with people i side. What a racist... Go troll someone else you piece of shit. Im sitting in a ciry surrounded by fires and smoke everywhere right now and im a racist for saying this is wrong. Fuck off.
@freemo MY FRIENDS, MY FAMILY WHERE KILL FOR RACIST PEOPLE LIKE YOU.
Come on! HAS SOMEONE GOT KILLED BY A PROTESTER? NO ONE.
All the people that had died are protesters. So you are comparing a wallmart with george floyd life, you are saying that a building is more important that peoples lives? "ay ay my city is on fire", get our of your bubble, when you get shoot come to me...
Dude several people hve been killed in the riots so far.. im my city alone tonight a dozen are seriously insured and may not survive so far.
@freemo yeah, they are being killed by crazy racist people WITH ARMS, AND BY COPS... Probably you are about to get a gun to "defend your city", as you speak it would be no surprise that you ended up shooting black people on protests...
PEOPLE ARE BEING KILLED BE POLICE AND WHITE CRAZY PEOPLE LIKE THE ONE IN YOUR VIDEO. White people love to do mass shooting.
I expected it to end with people organizing against and attacking the government. Not any random white person and business they can find.
It does seem that that is largely what's happening.
There may be outlier violence that doesn't embody the spirit of the protest, but the wider community will come together to repair.
Fediverse might be in a unique position to help people stay connected, uncensored and (thus) sane.
Dude i live in a city rioting. The skys were black with smoke last night. Businesses on fire everywhere, 13 seriously injured i dont know how many died from beatings last night. Since pretty much any and all random whites seem to be the target prople are hanging up signs in homes and stores sayi g "minority owned" and "minority i side" so their house doesnt get burned down
No that isnt what is largely happening the rioters are a disgrace on every level.
There are people attacking peaceful protesters too. So in terms if violence, it exists on both sides. It would not surprise us if the majority of the violence was instigated by people who serve to disempower the protestors.
It is absolutely a problem on both sides. The george flowd murder was horrific and i have no doubt police continue to abuse power too.
But two wrongs dont make a right. the rioters are just as morally guilty as the police is the point. Just by me shaming the rioters doesnt imply im praising the police.
