MelGoesOnTour: I'm surprised no cops showed up (assuming they were called).


I'm not.

Nobody can expect the painted words to remain pristine. The murals are a much larger work of art than words painted on the streets. The yellow letters are only the beginning of that art. The patina of rage that will follow (including the work of these two dipshiats) will be evolving for decades. Varying points of view will be represented. Layer upon layer applied in acts of rebellion will become a part of the American collage. This is a very good thing.

Oh, there's layers.

-She's repainting it black, so it ends up still saying Black Lives Matter, but in black instead of yellow.
-She's doing painting (messy and clothes-destroying) in her nice skirt and cute top.
-She's wearing a black skirt in the summer sun (uncomfortably warm, you know).
-She's actually committing a crime, vandalizing a city-funded mural instead of literally anything else.
-SHE is doing it instead of her boyfriend, and with an insufficient supply of paint suggesting they're also poor.

I love it.  I hope they go to jail.

Jim_Callahan: 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.


It actually gets better. If she painted over any of the lane lines/marking in her attempt to obliterate the mural, she could also be charged under Vehicle Code Section 21464 VC (defacing or interfering with a traffic control device), which at its lowest level is a fine of up to $5k, and if it can be proved to have contributed to a fatal accident, can rise to the level of being a felony.

Check out his body language when two women confront him. He's doing that douchebag thing holding his arms out to try and appear bigger. Total badass ready to rumble for Freedum!

Jail, lose jobs, get harassed, and fined big. I'm hoping. Stupidity like this needs to hurt where it matters.

The cops not bothering to even show up tells you all you need to know about the cops thoughts on BLM.

Here in Charlotte, we had an asshat do a burn out over the mural at 2AM. He bragged about it on FB and eventually deleted his account. The protests were still nightly. They were over for that night but would be back for at least a week. I can guarantee you there were cops all over uptown Charlotte 24/7. They are normally. No way, no how do the cops not notice someone doing a two-block long farking burnout. Not many cars can do that, shouldn't be hard to figure out which one did it. I've done burnouts like that. It leaves a HUGE cloud of smoke, Tryon st is a canyon of skyscrapers. That noise had to be deafening.

No arrests, CMPD is investigating.

The mural got repainted the next day and the city put concrete barriers on both ends. It's a pedestrian zone indefinitely.

Visual Howlaround Title Sequence: RasIanI: Visual Howlaround Title Sequence: jso2897: Ishkur: Kangaroo_Ralph: 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.

How so?

Because the loss of privilege feels like oppression.

I don't disagree with that statement in the slightest, but....

It seems somewhat inadequate to describe what is really going on in their heads. They don't feel privileged (even if they are).

There is more to unpack there.

There really isn't. They're racist.

Yes I am aware of that. Thanks for the useless glib response.

They lose their shiat afterwards because of the cognitive dissonance in their heads that cannot process them acting racist and also somehow not being racist in their own heads.

My issue is that something compels them to act out in the first place and it isn't solely racism. One could be racist on Breitbart without much effort and with few consequences.

These people are IN FEAR. They are behaving as though they are being PHYSICALLY ATTACKED when they are not. Their response is wholly disproportionate.

This is why I say there is more to unpack here.


They can't read and words painted on the street frighten them.

Perhaps "unpack" is the wrong verb.

I'll own that. My mistake.

My point is: they do not consciously say to themselves "I am being oppressed". They do not feel their privilege taken away feels like oppression because they do not feel that their rights are being taken away nor do they feel like their privilege is being taken away.

Even though I agree that "when privilege is taken away, it feels like oppression." It does. And for some of them, the idiots who complain "only Black people can be racist nowadays", yeah, those few have actually made the correct connection: they have had privilege others have not for their entire lives. Of course, even the moron who makes even that connection doesn't understand where his privilege comes from or even that the privilege exists as a priveldge.

But I digress.

These people are IN FEAR. They are behaving as though they are being PHYSICALLY ATTACKED when they are not. Their response is wholly disproportionate.

Yes, the underlying reason for the above is racism.

But what is actually going through their minds AT THE TIME. This is what I want to discover, and if possible, counter.

Right. Well, as I stated much earlier upthread (not that I expect you to have it at the ready, or that it was somehow noteworthy - I'm just saying), if the initial premise of your worldview is that all racism in America was technically eliminated with The Emancipation Proclamation, it's difficult to acknowledge BLMs position that Black Lives specifically Matter - his position is that BLMs position is ludicrous and some kind of power grab because All Lives Matter, not just the black ones.

Therefore in his mind, something else is up - some kind of power grab, some kind of "special right", some kind of agenda that will benefit them and harm him in the Zero-Sum game that is his worldview. And he obviously sees their success and currency in recent years combined with the madness of the moment and rather than them being dismissed, it's being advanced.

Anyways, somewhere in all that foolishness he perceives some type of either loss, or fear of a loss. But to perceive Black folk in America, your fellow citizens, receiving attention to an issue the feel is existential, as a situation where you fear that you are losing something is a) kind of me-me-me self centered, and; b) an unjustified, racially based emotion - generally a dictionary based definition of "racism"

You might think its glib, but I've been having these conversations for 35 years - I just get to the marrow of the bone. Some folks - and I'm not singling you out, here - feel more comfortable having there be a more complex, nuanced reason for racist behavior - in a different timeline he might be a recognizable and relatable character, so it's hard to just say "oh, it's all racism" - but so often that's all it really is. Sometimes its benign and ineffectual. Sometimes it decidedly not - but it's just baked-in racism.

Good news is that no one is irredeemable.

Wait, seriously?  They aren't even locals?  I thought that they were like some disgruntled local Trumpers who didn't want to have to look at it every day, similar to Pacific Heights Karen who didn't like the chalk BLM stencil.  WTF?!  I thought it was the dirty libs who were supposed to have the crisis actors.  Will Faux News and OANN be showing these brave heroes all day?

MinnesotaJack: It's easy to pick out people who haven't painted a wall before.


Came here for this. Who the hell wears an ankle-length black skirt when painting something on the ground outside? She'll spend all day tripping over herself in that, not to mention sweating her ass off. The smart thing would have been to wear some cheap loose jeans, but I guess that just wasn't fashionable. Plus instead of using a tray/5 gallon bucket and dipping the roller, she just dumps a pile of paint in one spot on the ground and tries to spread it around. Amateur hour painting all the way.

His bizarre, probably willfully ignorant view, that it all ended with the Emancipation Proclamation shows that he, like many, desperately needed to learn about what Juneteenth celebrates; that the proclamation wasn't enough and had to be followed up with action, action which is still required almost 140 years later.

Also, this supposed feeling of loss is just as you say.  It's the result of pretty much zero ability to actually analyze a subject, instead reacting almost strictly based on emotion; you know, the thing they accuse the liberals of doing.  Like most while people, that's a man and woman with zero actual power, but they have some feeling that if PoC are treated equally to them it means that they are inferior, that PoC are getting special treatment.  There is no rational thought process going on, no analysis of the reality of the situation, and I'm not sure that they are even capable.  I'd like to think that I could say to them, "As one white person to another, you aren't losing anything, this is about pulling people up and leveling the playing field.", but the video makes it pretty clear that they aren't interested in listening and there are millions of people like them; basically every remaining Trump supporter.  There election isn't going to make them disappear either.  They are a huge damned problem.  Sadly, maybe COVID-19 is the solution.

Wouldn't be too hard. With the sunlight shining down on it like that in the middle of summer on hot pavement, if it's just latex the paint would likely be mostly dry in about 5 minutes, especially with black paint. It might smear together here and there if you put down a new layer on top of it that soon, but it'd be dry enough for a new coat if you're not too particular.

MycroftHolmes: Perlin Noise: When you are privileged, equality seems just like oppression.

Are you talking about white people, men, heterosexuals, or Christians?


of course.

I want to go up and ask if they need help, grab the brush like I'm going to use it, then walk off with it.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Ishkur: SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Ishkur: SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Obviously it was founded by self professed Marxists

How do you know this? Do you even know who they are? Their names?

The org has three founders.

Patrisse Cullors : "We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular, we're trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories." Said in response to criticism by other black leaders that BLM didn't have an ideology.

Alicia Garza : See above

Opal Tometti : No info

I said obviously, since this comes up all the time with documentation. https://youtu.be/HgEUbS​zOTZ8

Ah, I see the problem now.

You use Marxism in its colloquial (re: pejorative) context whereas they use it in its ideological context.

Me : BLM was founded by self-professed Marxists

You : Says who?

Me : Here they are saying they're trained Marxists

You : But wharrgarbl

I clearly say the answer was given as a response to people saying they don't have an ideology. The ideology appears to be a Marxist one. Who doesn't agree?


No, they said "says who" about them being corrupt---no need to challenge being leftist or intellectually Marxist since none of those are bad things

Somebody should go to the store and get some safety yellow paint and masking tape.

Just fix the letters each time she moves on to the next one.

dodecahedron: shaggai: REO-Weedwagon: Those of us who live among these Morlocks find nothing surprising about this video. He's nothing out of the ordinary. I'll go to the grocery store and see this asshole everywhere, no mask of course. American conservatives are a pestilence.

Check out his body language when two women confront him. He's doing that douchebag thing holding his arms out to try and appear bigger. Total badass ready to rumble for Freedum!

vrax: Cubansaltyballs: Farking Clown Shoes: Summoner101: I was expecting this to be somewhere in Nowheresville, California, but this is near San Fran.

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

Well, I guess technically it's east bay.  But Martinez is more like the outskirts of the bay.

And those people came in from the central valley.

Wait, seriously?  They aren't even locals?  I thought that they were like some disgruntled local Trumpers who didn't want to have to look at it every day, similar to Pacific Heights Karen who didn't like the chalk BLM stencil.  WTF?!  I thought it was the dirty libs who were supposed to have the crisis actors.  Will Faux News and OANN be showing these brave heroes all day?


Come on. Look at them. Martinez was prob the closest "city" to whatever cow town in Salinas County they come from.

Total goddamned pieces of shiat!  It wasn't only a message, it was a work of art.  Probably some sort of payback for tearing down images of racists and traitors to the United States.

The bystanders should have linked arms and formed a line for area denial. Make them work and/or attack your group while you stand in the way.

I see odd Trumphumpers throughout the Bay Area and can never tell if they are locals or not, I just assume they are.

Welcome to reality! California is NOT the Liberal Hippy Flower-Haired Saucer People Nudist Liberal Paradise the media portrays us to be. We have more MAGAts than any other state. Entire counties like San Diego with tens of millions of people are entirely Trump. Even San Francisco has become far more Trump-loving as the ultra wealthy are the only ones that can afford to live there anymore and the ultra wealthy are not known for the compassionate Liberalism. For every lady like this awful creature there are thousands more, all white, all armed, all pissed off at everyone not like themselves.

/ If it wasn't for all of the educated city folk this state would be Oklahoma West.
