The world sees us as China's Tiananmen Square.

That is not respect Donnie. That is pity.

So, Donnie, how's it feel to have the world watching American Spring?
 
2020-06-08 5:37:59 PM  
This is pretty important. The world feels (our) pain and confusion.

Demonstrators wearing face masks take part in a protest against police brutality and the killing of George Floyd, in front of the Trump Towers in Istanbul, Turkey, on June 5, 2020.


He won't like that.

Are they going to emmigrste here, become citizens, and vote in time for November?

Are they going to boycott American goods and companies until we solve our humanitarian issues?

Are they going to pressure their leaders to take diplomatic actions against us if we don't shape up?

Well, if somebody had asked me to take a bet in November 2016 how long it would take the Orange Shiatstain to diminish America's role in the world to "3rd World dictatorship aspiring to be as democratic as Myanmar" I would have struggled with three and a half years.

Let's be honest, brown people can hold up a sign that says "I like cheese" and he won't be happy about that either.

We've been talking about how bad 2020 is so far.  I'm beginning to think it will be marked in the books as momentous.

This kind of continued demonstration is only rivaled by the civil rights revolution.  Maybe this is the start of CivRights II.  Already Minneapolis has voted to disband their police.  The rest of the world is also chanting "Black Lives Matter".

Dare I hope that the momentum continues and morphs in to more, actual change for the better?

I know cops murdering black people is pretty normal and acceptable to many in the USA (scarily many) but the rest of the world is horrified. For a long time many of the incidents were confused with lies from the police (just look at Floyd's death - resisting arrest? died of a 'medical incident'?), there were no excuses, no lies people would buy.

We've seen American police's true colours and it's horrific.

I disagree. The world is very much watching and who we are and become on the global stage is and will be effected. We go worldwide and preach democracy and freedom while talking shiat about dictators. It's time to put up or shut up. Every diplomat and politician who wants to preserve the US as a global leader understands that.

Yup.  When you put yourself forth as the poster child of equality, democracy, etc....  youhave to walk the walk.

When the restof the world starts calling 'BULLSHIAT', maybe its time to take a long good look in the mirror.
 
2020-06-08 6:53:32 PM  
I've been telling people that protests make me hopeful.

It means people give a shiat. Yes, it's appalling that black people still have to ASK to be considered people. In America. Well into the 21st century. That's appalling. And the police response to demonstrations against police brutality is largely appalling.

But lots of people care enough to protest, and that's a good thing. It's not a sign that things are getting worse (Republicans are generally the ones saying that).

It's a sign that lots of people want things to be better. That's overall, a positive. People aren't "meh" about wanting things to be better.

And just to be clear, President Sniveling Asshole gets no credit for this. He didn't do anything. This is some shiat that's happened long before he waddled onto the scene. It happened independent of anything he's done or said, he deserves no credit for it. It's all due to Black Lives Matter and other civil rights organizations who've been talking about police brutality for as long as we've had police in this country.

I'll take that bet.

So global recognition of America's systemic racism is not important to you?  Russia asking us to respect human rights does not indicate how far our standing in the world is diminished?  Our ability to act as a beacon of democracy and fairness being squandered like a shiatty cheap mail-order steak is not a sign of irrecoverable moral decline to you?

Any day that Bashar Al-Assad or Recep Erdogan can lecture America on democracy and human rights is a testament to how far this country has fallen from decency and righteousness.

Ask any Black man.

But by all means, cling to your American exceptionalism while reading "The decline of empires".

I really think this post gets the point, however I think protesting police violence affecting Blacks isnt the real main problem as a Black person is more likely to drown or die in a house fire than die by a police action.  The main problem is how can the Black community gain self esteem and self respect and become nonviolent to themselves, that they are people, that other people are not trying to and can not oppress them, to end up with only a "human" community on the other side.  The solidarity of people across the globe is one good start on that path, next they need strong, good hearted, and smart leadership.

The world knows perfectly well who we are and what we've become. It's not exactly a secret and we certainly haven't been hiding it.

Do you think protests in France are going to change the minds of red hats in Mississippi? If anything they are going to make Republicans happier and prouder to have managed to stiggit to the European liberals.

They should be telling their government's not to sell us tear gas and rubber bullets or buy f-35s as long as we are going to use them on civillians.

Here in Scotland we are putting up plaques on some of our statues explaining their full slave trading history. Or throwing them into rivers. Standing with BLM makes us all look in the mirror. Some countries take down statues, others will hopefully dismantle a militarized white supremacist police force.

I mean, I get your overall point. America is far from perfect, but let's not pretend those three have any moral high ground to stand on. I mean, yea, saying "We're better than them" is an incredibly low bar to clear, but their criticisms mean precisely nothing considering what they do in their own countries.

Systemic racism in the United States hasn't been news to the rest of the world since the 1800s. If we were ever a beacon for civil rights we obviously had abandoned that by the early 1970s, and the war on drugs was a doubling down on that.

Russia scolding us for beating protesters is a new low, but that's diplomacy not a protest movement. Just about every week of the trump administration is a new low.

Yes, it's also a uniting issue. In 1847 Ireland was in the midst of a horrible famine. The Chotaw nation, American Indians with their own issues heard about it and sent food to try to help people they've never met or likely never would. In 2020 Irish people heard how hard hit the Chotaw nation was with COVID-19 and decided to pay back an old debt. Things move just a little bit faster nowadays. The world is uniting behind a populace that is dealing with oppression. They became allies, not in the nations way but in the human way. That won't be forgotten and they in turn will receive support from us once we stand back up. This scares the living shiat out of tyrants.

It tells me something mind-boggling. All the hypocrisy of the US, for scores of years, for centuries... and yet people still see, in the back of their minds, the words held by Our Lady of the Harbor.

They're saying *WE* need to get it *right*, because if we can, they can too, and if we can't, what hope is there?

I really think this post gets the point, however I think protesting police violence affecting Blacks isnt the real main problem as a Black person is more likely to drown or die in a house fire than die by a police action.  The main problem is how can the Black community gain self esteem and self respect and become nonviolent to themselves, that they are people, that other people are not trying to and can not oppress them, to end up with only a "human" community on the other side.  The solidarity of people across the globe is one good start on that path, next they need strong, good hearted, and smart leadership.


So how should women dress to reduce sexual harassment in the workplace?

Any ideas on what our gay friends can do to keep from being fired when their bosses find out about their private life?

Well, this is the whitest thing I've seen all day and I just drove by the Gap and saw Mike Huckabee.


Please don't conflate his racism with being white. I'm pretty white (sprinkle of Mongol for spice) and he does not speak for me. Racism is racism and if you don't believe me go to Japan and try to marry a Japanese woman, you'll be welcome with open arms.
