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.

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?

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.

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.

George Floyd died because a nasty evil cop decided to kill him. How does this entitle you to destroying other innocent lives?

I don't get targeted by protestors because I'm supporting them. I don't get targeted by right-wing provocateurs because I'm large and I look like a crazy person.

rewind2846: 1. It isn't unanimous. There are quite a few white people that DGAF that some "person who annoys you" died.


"Quite a few" is a vague term that isn't helpful towards solving a problem. We need specifics. Police chiefs across the nation, both Democrats and Republicans, Fox News, CNN and MSNBC, and every other national voice immediately condemned this. Of course there's going to be "a few" people who are evil, racist, arseholes or all three. They do not constitute the "norm". The actual "Norm" in this case was condemnation.

rewind2846: One good solution that has been shown to work is having police live in the neighborhoods where they work. Right now too many live elsewhere and then patrol the neighborhoods they have been assigned like guards at a prison camp. No one wants to feel like an inmate in their own home.


Agreed, I think this would be a great step towards bringing the police and community closer together and give each some buy in towards the success of the other.

rewind2846: Not every white person is racist. A good start would be to not condone racist behavior to keep the racists out. You engage in that type of behavior even once, you're fired. Period.


Again I agree, and so do most people when asked. We already have laws on the books that make it illegal to discriminate based on skin color unless you include quota's. So we have to figure out what lets people and specifically police officers get away with blatantly racist behavior? Since we can agree it's not that society is turning a blind eye. This leads me to the arbitration process and protections negotiated by the police union. We may have to look at their contracts.

So this gives me hope, we have begun a product conversation. Two points we agree upon and only on we disagree. This is how it's supposed to be done in my opinion.

Well said. It just keeps perpetuating the idea that it's ok to be violent and destructive to get what you want. I understand being angry about police cracking down on peaceful protests, but taking it out on a third party doesn't solve the problem.

Both of you still don't farking get it.

Violence comes about because idiots like you haven't been listening or properly reacting to the complaints and issues at hand.

Society, which supports both those businesses and the cops is the problem.  Both of you have expressed exactly the attitudes which have created that poisonous society.

Your bad attitudes creates that society where property is valued above life and rights.  The property (those businesses) are protected by society via the police.  So attacking what appears to you to be 3rd party property is a way of directing violence at the society which is the root of this problem.

So now you have been informed why things happen they way they happen - it is up to you to decide if you are going to continue to be part of the problem or work towards solving it.


I get it now! You have opened my eyes! So what property  of yours should I destroy? I mean your house is protected by the police right?

1. It isn't unanimous. There are quite a few white people that DGAF that some "person who annoys you" died.
2. One good solution that has been shown to work is having police live in the neighborhoods where they work. Right now too many live elsewhere and then patrol the neighborhoods they have been assigned like guards at a prison camp. No one wants to feel like an inmate in their own home.

The key here is trust. Police departments have abused the trust - and the privileges - the citizens have given them. They are still doing this now... check the interwebs for the video. We give them guns, badges, and the power of life and death with relatively few repercussions. It's time that they live up to the trust they want us to have in them. No one should have to fear the police except criminals.

Rapmaster2000: Whoa. CanisNoir is back. Must be an election year. Say hi to Black Cat.


Nope, just disheartened enough after participating in a completely peaceful protest last night to come on and discover a business bending over to mob violence out of fear. I'm sick of the divisive narrative being pushed by media because it is destructive and glosses over the real problems that continue to exist and will continue to exist as long as people keep focused on demonizing each other.

Looting does nothing to further a cause. Shouting Racism and No Peace No Justice over a case that demonstrates speedy justice does nothing but delegitimize your message. Calling this a problem of white racism is an obvious fallacy.

I'm tired of seeing my community divided by people proclaiming they want tolerance, and I'm really sick of the media exploiting human tragedy to further the divisions and bolster their ratings.

This has nothing to do with an election - at this point I don't have anyone I can cast a vote for so I'm planning on writing in Yang. I haven't hidden that fact.

So how about we look at the real problem? Let's make public the union protections that police officers have in negotiating complaints, let's acknowledge that inequities exist within the system but are tied more to class than race. Then we can take a closer look at the historical trends that caused us to be in this position.

Conservative Evangelical Millennial Cyclist: Old accounts that have haven't had a presence on fark forums seem to be popping up a lot lately. Odd.


I'm just a lurker, but yeah it's so weird how these accounts pop up in election years and spew disingenuous garbage.

Who do you imagine you're talking to?

GreenSun: 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.


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*

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.

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.


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

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.

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.

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.

Palined Parenthood: GrendelMk1: Palined Parenthood: THATS WHY I ONLY SHOP AT WALMART'S NOT LIBSTROMS

Wish this was funny. But in your farked up country, there's a large percentage of people who would say this and mean it.

/sadly, there's a smaller but non-zero percentage of the same assholes in my country

¡Es por eso que compro en Wal-Mart en lugar de Nordstrom!


That looks like google translate.
