I'm not saying they are right or should be allowed to run amok, but I don't have any trouble understanding why they do.
Go look at some of those twitter pictures of OLDER FOLKS loaded up with CVS goodies.

Teenagers aren't the ones stealing toilet paper.

Nothing says social justice like a free big screen TV.

It has to be said, though, that this isn't a "black culture" thing, as some posters would like to believe.


Its an ignorance thing, its criminals and other shady types taking advantage of a situation to try and get as much free **** as possible, to cause as much mayhem and destruction as possible, setting fire to your own neighborhood, that's just ignorant.

The riots are an unfortunate result of neoliberalism championed by bigotry.

I'm not sure what the pastors and other church related people think they will do. I doubt anyone out there now cares about religion. The come across as instigators to me.

Don't act dense.
I don't think it's an act.

Be careful. The mods on this section will reprimand you before they do her even though she's spouting her bigotry along with the others.

I do admire the fact that she created a new account solely to denigrate the Black race, it's like she's flirting with us.

I know, but sometimes it needs to be said. I'll take the hit.
