I would be interested in seeing the actual demographics of the looters. Probably some Khajiit in there, and a lot less Redguards than the Imperials claim.

Good on you, Nordstroms, I'll never play you in Elder Scrolls but I appreciate you trying to help.

It would be nice if more companies would announce the causes they support so I know when and where I can loot responsibly.

I tend to think of Nordstrom as a pretentious store for rich assholes, but that's pretty decent of them.

Funny how the analogy pre-riots but post-covid (2020PC-2020PR) is that we're the country wearing swap meet polyester with a brand new Gucci belt. Or something like that.
 
2020-06-03 3:10:51 AM  
That's a nice change from the usual "property damage is a far more serious crime than all these black people getting murdered by  police all the time, therefore all the protests are automatically invalid and all participants should be arrested and locked up for life" messages we've been getting lately from totally-not-trolls.

I've found Gucci shoes in the trash at the car wash next door.
In the box and everything.

Does this happen in other nations? Seriously! Or is that a America thing?

"I am angry because something terrible is happening, so I'll just go destroy other people's livelihoods or harm innocents because causing pain and destruction on others will surely solve the problem!"

Hey, if Nord doesn't care about their business being destroyed and their merchandise being stolen, well that's them. I wonder what happens to their employees who actually used to work there but can't do so anymore. Sure hope Nord will pay these people some money to tide them over while Nord rebuilds their wrecked workplaces for these people.

Sure hope small businesses owned by locals and families are prepared to have their businesses destroyed and their means of income stolen. They don't have the same financial power as a big company as Nord which can shrug off a destroyed shop or two.

https://www.nbc12.com/2020/05/30/its-​n​ot-fair-business-owners-clean-up-after​-overnight-protests/

Before you support these riots and looting, THINK ABOUT THE EMPLOYEES, THE FAMILIES, THE CHILDREN, THE PEOPLE WHO COUNT ON THEIR WORK TO SURVIVE.

George Floyd died because a nasty evil cop decided to kill him. How does this entitle you to destroying other innocent lives? You're no different than the evil cop you are supposed to be protesting against. If you truly believe that destroying people's businesses, livelihoods, and homes and harming innocents is what will finally bring justice and bring down racism in the US, then you are a heartless, cruel person with a delusional mind.

?????

Serious question,
You think society, this society, doesn't enable that cop and other cops to kill people, was pretty much impunity?

Fark off. No one supports looting. No one is here saying, "it sure is great that businesses are being looted and destroyed." The only people supporting that shiat are accelerationist assholes, who incidentally are not protesting anything. Depending on the flavor of accelerationist, they are either trying to hurt the protest movement or hurt the country for unrelated reasons.

Blaming people supportive of the protests, or blaming the cause itself, or even trying to create a false equivalency between the evil of systemic racism and the incidental property damage from protests, is disingenuous bullshiat. Just say you don't think people dying at the hands of the state is worth causing a fuss over and get out.

I'm not going to comment on the contents of your post.

I did want to make a more general comment that it's funny how then the first three or four lines of your post I was pretty sure of what your political orientation is. Which is almost definitely not bleeding heart liberal.

Facts and realities that people see and State are driven almost entirely by their political affiliations, which in turn drives the reality that is presented to them.

It's a fascinating and disturbing phenomenon

Oh yeah, and also, Nordstrom was already closed because of the coronavirus. I'm sure whatever assistance they were giving the employees who couldn't come to work can still be provided. So... *jerk off motion*

No, I am NOT a Trump supporter. Just because I don't support the rioters, looters, and criminals doesn't make me a Trump supporter.

There are peaceful protestors out there and they're getting the message across. Why destroy businesses and harm innocent people?

In the news, there are a lot of features about cops joining the peaceful protests. Why can't it be like that everywhere else?

https://www.commondreams.org/news/202​0​/05/31/i-took-helmet-and-laid-batons-d​own-michigan-sheriff-and-police-didnt-​disperse-their

In some places, protestors are trying to stop the violent types of protestors from destroying businesses. Even a young teen was able to help lead a protest to end into a peaceful one with nobody harmed and no businesses destroyed.

https://people.com/human-interest/16-​y​ear-old-praised-for-leading-peaceful-p​rotests-detroit/

People have a choice in how they wish to protest. They can do it peacefully or violently at the cost of other people's safety and livelihood.

Have you ever thought about what would happen if the rioters destroyed your place of work, stole your stuff, broke into your home and beat you up? Would you still say it's justified that they destroyed your livelihood or ability to earn an income for your family? Would you say it's justified that they stole all the things that you worked hard for? Would you say it's justified that you or your family were beaten or killed when you tried to defend yourselves and your property?

It's so easy to say you support these violent rioters when you're not on the receiving end of their violence.

And it's easy to love the police, when it's your neck that will never be knelt on.

People, in this nation could have lifted up a football player that peacefully knelt.
It did not. Especially the man our electoral college put in charge.

Why exactly do you think society can poop on it's own citizens and it not effect alllllll citizens????
If the police can kill this man or that man what is keeping them from killing me or you? Nothing.


Do you think slaves that killed slave masters was in the wrong?
Should have natives Never killed a pioneer?
Why is violence done by the government okay, but, responding with violence wrong?
WTF?
What kind of hypocrisy is that?

Protesters are protesters and looters are criminals. One is exercising their constitutional rights (you know, the one with more than that Second one you loooove) the other is committing a crime. But you know the difference, dontcha?
