How is that possible? SF has the highest number of billionaires in the world.
and one of the highest rates of homelessness in the country.
Texas has serious problems and they can't manage power grid and people freeze to death.
I guess you have no idea about California's terrible power grid which we constantly get blackouts in heat waves. Try again!

Just another day in a red state.
So you woke up. Did a quick Google search for his picture to check the race. Noticed he wasn't white so your go-to white supremacy thing is out the window. Next looked at the State and much to your satisfaction happened in a red state so had to rush here to say that. No RIPs or sympathy for the dead victims by a crazy man strickened by ptsd. Instead you choose to make everything political and seems like you are dancing on the grave of the victims.

Don't want to mess up the cash flow.
Exactly, you notice nothing was said about Gavin Newsom. Covid regulations are made by the States. If things go wrong and there is a "D" by the governor's name, blame the President.

You seem confused. When did Penn apologise to China? All “Hollywood libs” are the same are they?
Just saying "China" and notice how quick you came to defend. I have yet to hear you say anything about China or Cuomo.
Must be nice to have such a simple childlike view of the world, comforting
Once you give up debating and resort to personal attacks, you have already lost.

An interesting take on the old "if you don't like it here, leave" mantra. People live in places that they call home. They may have roots there, or build and be part of communities. And with anywhere you call home, there will be things about it you want to change for the better.
So why do you have huge interest in a State that has nothing to do with you? I don't hear people on the inside of Florida complaining nor was there a huge outcry within Georgia. Only people on the outside are complaining. Fact, many States have Republicans governors that do what governors do and make laws for that State. Unlike you, I don't make vacation plans according to whether that State or city's politician has a "D" or "R" by their name.

People voted, Republicans lost. It’s that simple. Thus the move to limit voting because we can’t have a bunch of uppity minorities expressing their displeasure.
So why complain? If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to lose.
Yep, my Florida vacation plans are off!
If whoever the politician of a place is decides where you go, why do you remain in a place where you hate the leaders?

Georgia is going to require a driver’s license number, social security number or other ID on absentee ballots — provisions that some allege may disenfranchise Black voters.
Actually not that early in the morning for you to address my first sentence on how taking away money from Black-owned businesses and putting them into white-owned ones benefits the Black community. You notice that you pick and choose small bits of someone's comment and always fail to address the entire issue.
And this is 2021, not the mid-20th century. The civil right movement of the 1960’s and the Southern Strategy of the 70’s made the Democratic (not “Democrat”) party to be the party of civil rights and the GOO to be the party of white grievance and voter suppression.
Same goes with this one here. Address the topic of MLB suppressing Black-owned businesses. You want to avoid that though and avoid the fact that Joe Biden called this worse than Jim Crow.

Yeah, we all know that certain protests (the popular, fashionable, twitter-driven, woke ones) will be encouraged, but anything else won't be allowed at all. Taking a knee to support BLM (and their call to defund the police and break-up the family) and you'll be celebrated. Protest against lock-downs, corruption in the highest level of sports, or anything like that, and it'll be a different story.
Biden is supposedly the president so there won't be need to protest anymore because social workers will replace police and coronavirus will magically disappear under his reign.

Y'all talking about the U.S. on the outside looking in but I am on the inside looking straight.

You can still eat pizza inside your Costco? Mine has removed all the tables and has made everything take-out only.
I am talking about Costco in the U.S. not Japan. The ones in Los Angeles, the most locked down and strict on dining counties in the entire U.S. still have tables for diners. They are outside. Tables are full so diners sit on walls and curbs to eat.

So this a separate Super Mario theme park and not the Nintendo World Zone within USJ that they planned? Then the 4th paragraph calls it an attraction. Is this a theme park, zone or attraction?

Funny thing on here is that people support the burning, looting and people dying during these protests. However, when I suggest that the killer cop get the death penalty, people call it savage and heartless smh

Property is sacrosanct, black lives aren't, huh? Get in a room with all the people who have lost their fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters and tell them how Target's corporate earnings are more important.
I am not talking about corporations, I am talking about minority-owned businesses which you could care less about. Do you dare me to post every single link of videos of people beating storeowners, burning businesses and shooting at each other? No problem. Now do me a huge favor and interview every single of the people above that they were truly doing this in the name of George Floyd then will be donating all proceedings to his family and those who have suffered police brutality. Also wanted to see how much effort you have put into the cause sitting on your sofa in a Tokyo apartment.

We have video evidence of police driving into crowds of people. Shooting citizens and journalists for no reason other than to instil fear. Placing bricks on the ground as a pretext for "self-defense". Arresting people who have committed no crime.
We also have video of storeowners being beaten to a pulp protecting their businesses, homes being looted and stores being looted and burned to the ground with zero police presence. I wanted to remind you that many of moms and pops stores that are Black, Hispanic, Asian and Middle Eastern owned. Items can replaced, lives can't huh? Get in a room with all of the people who have lost jobs and their life savings over this to explain to them how none of this is a big deal.

when I go to town, just one slow driver adds about an extra 20 minutes and causes a long line of cars behind, all angry because they will be late for work.
Leave earlier or go around them. Even on a double yellow, if the car is going well under the speed limit like you said, check for oncoming traffic and go around. I have heard of people being stopped by police believe it or not for driving too slow.

Been saying this for weeks and a lot people thought it was no big deal. I wish I were wrong, but I'm not!
Japan had 900 deaths and people some people here are in an outright frenzy. Another country has over 100,000 deaths with millions as we speak congregating together shoulder to shoulder and all I hear is crickets. Go figure!

Don't get it twisted! Other countries are not protesting racism and police brutality in the U.S. but for racism and injustice. UK, Australia, Germany, Canada, NZ, France, etc also have racism and oppression against minorities but U.S. always hogs the headlines. Stand up for what you believe in!

The powers that be don't care if you destroy your own neighborhoods. Your reality, their entertainment. Why has not a single, solitary soul thought about taking the fight to the wealthy part of town?
1 ( +2 / -1 )
One thing people fail to mention here as they continue to call Japan stupid for opening up and the lack of social distancing. Japan has had around 900 deaths since the pandemic began. U.S. has had 105,000 deaths. Statistically 1/3 of those deaths have been from African Americans. That is 33 times more African Americans have died from this than Japanese. If you think COVID-19 takes a break during protests, you are sadly mistaken. I am worried about all of this.

While you peck away at your keyboard those people are out making things happen.
From interviews I am watching with people from the neighborhood in and around Lake Street, many upon many are upset about the outcome. The barbershops, supermarkets, gas stations, clothing spots, liquor stores, laundromats, library, bars, shoe stores, etc that they frequented their whole lives have been destroyed or burned to a crisp. Many were pillars of the community and Black-owned. Some even put up signs on the windows that said "Black-owned" which didn't faze anyone. People could just walk over due to the convenience and now many mentioned that they have to drive for miles just to buy food for live. Might I mention there were many out of state license plates. One guy said in the shoe shop they were looting, he chatted with people driving in from Chicago and other States.
As we destroy our own communities, the powers that be are watching at home laughing in the safety of their own abodes. Most of these businesses will never reopen because Covid had already most of them skating in thin ice. The revolution could have been taken to the rich part of town, then people would care and make a swift change. Did you notice the police and national guard weren't deployed for 2 days after most of the community was gone? The powers that be did nothing and said naw, just let them do what they want.
