LOL.

Not to mention, she went there with one can.

Funnt shiat though, who cares.  Paint it then.

Looks like vandalism to me.  Stupid biatch and her enabler.

Um... the mural was commissioned by the city.

That's an actual crime these idiots just committed on camera, without masks.  The latter being amazingly stupid for two reasons.

The fines for this kind of shiat are usually something like the cost to replace the damaged property multiplied by two or three, they're... probably on the hook for over 10k$ for that shiat, closing down a street ain't cheap even if the crew doing the work is.

... hope it was worth it, I guess.  Dumbasses.

Arrest them. Find their racist tweets and expose them.

Short attention spans in USA. Another few months and the rain will wash it away anyways. You really think governments are going to pay to keep repainting that year after year?

She managed to turn a powerful statement in to a more powerful one.
Anyone seeing the defaced version knows why it was defaced.

East Bay, actually, full of white people who are scared to death of all the brown and black people in Oakland.

Didn't the city paint the BLM message?  So, is she then vandalizing city property?
 
2020-07-05 7:40:07 AM  
That's right in front of the courthouse in Martinez and really near the jail so I wonder why the cops aren't responding. On the weekends that part of Martinez does turn into a ghost town but still someone in law enforcement should be around.

Yup.  That's even brought up in the last ~20 seconds of the video.  The couple didn't care.

I think you know why. There is a good chance those people are connected to law enforcement.

Notice the cop car drive past one street over and yet no cops came to investigate.

Imagine getting so triggered at the mere suggestion that black lives have value. Those people got snakes in their head.

The point is that these people are idiots, isn't it? I'm insinuating that if they were smart racists (an oxymoron) they would just wait around until the movement dies out on its own accord.

Yeah I expect they are too lazy to paint over the entire rectangle of the street.  Should be funny to watch them get to the end and the realize they need to go back and work some more.

I want the "all lives matter people to be sentenced to 400 hours of remedial education in English and 400 hours of remedial education in basic logic.


Saying Apples are delicious doesn't mean Apples are better than Pears.

The statement that Black Lives Matter is a refutation of the counter-point that Black lives do not Matter. It says nothing whatsoever about White Lives, Old Lives, or Young Lives.

I want these people to have to walk door to door explaining that they were stupid and now they want to beg for forgiveness.
 
2020-07-05 8:07:13 AM  
Just incredibly obdurate and dense. His rejection outright of the existence of racism in the USA is preventing him from even understanding the simplest of premises: that All Lives Do Not Matter, and if they did, BLM wouldn't have to remind America that their lives indeed DO matter.

If your 1st premise is that America has no racism to deal with, that systemic inequality is not baked into the system, well, you're pretty much beyond reasoning with. One has to assume that the system is working for you, personally, and that you have good, personal reasons for not upsetting the proverbial apple cart. That is, unfortunately, really, really racist.
 
2020-07-05 8:08:28 AM  
Most of you are missing the point....

They did this in the middle of the day with the knowledge that very likely someone would see them.  Their operation wasn't so effective and vast that they would actually cover the ENTIRE thing.

They did it so they would be seen and eventually prosecuted, to which they would pay the fine and that would be it.  And from that they get to be right-wing celebs and lionized by Trump and get a booth/panel at CPAC.

The message here is that white folks can do whatever the fark they want and when they behave badly there is no consequence, matter of fact it's inevitably the opposite of consequences.

Why couldn't one of those people have a can of bear mace?  It's non lethal after all.

The movement to make sure everyone knows that black lives are equal to all other lives is righteous. But the Black Lives Matter organization is corrupt.

And that's why vandalism is okay!

Except when tearing down Confederate statues. In that case, it's just mean.

Governments using the branding of particular organizations is probably a bad choice.

Saying black lives matter as a concept is not the same as BLACK LIVES MATTER the brand.

For one thing, BLM the org seems to have received tens of millions in donations. It refuses to say where the money is going though.

For another, it's not clear the political goals of the BLM org. Obviously it was founded by self professed Marxists and an array of anarcho-communists and other extreme leftists are acting behind shield of the movement. The govt flying flags and painting streets with the branding of a political org is highly questionable. Since the name of the org is the wording of a statement that would be heinous to not agree with, it's a move that's almost scarily brilliant.

Pretty much anything ever written by this poster is the equivalent to 'I know you are, but what am I?' He has nothing of value to add, so he drops a meaningless ambiguous turd, then leaves the thread thinking himself quite clever. He most likely has erectile dysfunction and this is the only way he can feel potent.
