Not sure your point...Twitter view is skewed.I would not rely on it for real news (see realdonaldtrump)

I love Minneapolis after visiting many years ago..It is my hope that reform makes it even better. Right now they are going through much like LA did decades ago..Horrible.....I am not there but I know that their wonderful community will lift all up.

My small, very diverse city is stressed..riots and plywood are no where to be found...All of us, who are still employed, are spending as we can to keep our local businesses open..

But I could post just as many views of 'carnage" here as well...

"For it is not light
that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the
whirlwind, and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the
conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the
hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be
proclaimed and denounced." Frederick Douglass 1852

I can't. Maybe you can tell us what it says and your analysis of it.

I hear this trope about every other day, IRL. So and so's small business was destroyed by blacks. They were (fill in the blank). In other words, they were not black.

We heard a similar narrative on the news recently (for days on end) about a single looted Target, a single looted Wal-Mart, and one looted McDonald's.

In my view, this is not the larger issue. I think the real problem is police murdering blacks (practically on sight), Hispanics, poor whites, etc. with virtual impunity.

They are rarely arrested or tried and almost never convicted.
