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.

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.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: 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.

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.

We all agree you're a moron.

It makes absolute sense for a protest movement in any country to be well versed in Marxist ideology and to understand the honest historical reality of Marx. Understanding Marx and subscribing to some of his theories doesn't make you a Stalinist commie bastard, but losing your shiat every time you hear the word "Marxist" most definitely makes you an idiot relic of a very shiatty America.

2.  These two are in for a rude awakening if they think they will just get a fine. In most places is a misdemeanor up until a certain dollar value.  Here in Michigan, if the vandalism costs more than $1,000 to repair, it goes from a misdemeanor to a felony.  The very message and brazenness of their crime, and the current political environment certainly won't earn them leniency.

What BLM the org?  Black Lives Matter is not a trademarked name.  Anyone can name their organization, Black Lives Matter, which has happened.  Black Lives Matter Global Network, which was set up by the three founding member of the Black Lives Matter movement,  is a non-profit set up to accept donations that is run by Thousand Currents.  As you can see, the name of that organization is NOT Black Lives Matter.  So, when someone paints Black Lives Matter, they are not painting the name of any specific organization, because there is no organization that call itself Black Lives Matter that runs the Black Lives Matter movement, or organizes it in a centralized manner.

"All lives matter was quickly called out as a racist counter protest, so we focused on *how* they were saying it for a few years until that lost traction this last spring.  After a couple focus groups and klan meets, we've arrived at a solution!"

We all agree you're a moron.

It makes absolute sense for a protest movement in any country to be well versed in Marxist ideology and to understand the honest historical reality of Marx. Understanding Marx and subscribing to some of his theories doesn't make you a Stalinist commie bastard, but losing your shiat every time you hear the word "Marxist" most definitely makes you an idiot relic of a very shiatty America.

Hell, understanding Marx and subscribing to some of his theories doesn't even make one a "Marxist".

I'm saying it's a political organization in addition to a social movement and in addition to a phrase that everyone believes in. It's an overloaded term.

If a government starts flying flags of an ideological political organization because the name of the organization is a nice phrase that nobody could disagree with, you need to be suspicious. Especially if people start getting attacked or fired for even questioning it.

If cities started flying Make America Great Again flags, it would be a problem, even if the statement is a nice aspirational phrase. I'm guessing some people would have an issue with that.

Interesting thought process there.

Do you think that the "movement" is the mural?  Your other comment about repainting every year would indicate so.

The movement is about establishing true equality through legal and regulatory means, where black people can work, live, shop and pursue life without meeting the hidden and not so hidden racism of this country.  The mural is not the movement, it will take more than Cracker Karen and her cuck partner to hide the intent and purpose behind BLM.

The real work is yet to be done, to Identify and dismantle the systemic racism of this country, and the resurgence of right wingers extremism under Trump and Goebbels wannabe Miller - and more importantly, the 38% of American voters who are just fine with this.

The mural is just a like MLK putting a post-it note in his diary.  BLM is a reckoning, not a mural.

Why? Pushing ideological agendas is literally all governments do. They can't not do it. Each Administration has a framework of values they want to enforce, from child labor laws to maternity healthcare.

The only thing the government cannot push is a religious point of view. Church and state stays separate as per the First Amendment (although that hasn't stopped some state legislatures from pushing religion anyway).

If you dislike the values that the government has chosen to legislate, then do your democratic duty and vote them out next election.

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.

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.


In that case, they shouldn't be fined but instead be forced to do community service. Say 500 hours, consisting entirely of cleaning up the BLM sign each time it's defaced. And all of the other throwbacks who perform the same act of vandalism can join them in the cleanup. It'll get quicker and quicker, and the hours will drag on and on since less time will be taken up doing it.

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.

RasIanI: 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.


That is the reason some white people hate the marches, the protests, the movement itself. They are comfortable the way things are, with them on top and everyone else fighting for the scraps... and I don't mean just economically. It's their system that their ancestors created and they maintain, own and run, and they don't want to see it changed. Part of that maintenance is reasoning that the racial equality in the system which keeps them on top does not exist, and ignoring it when it's placed in front of them.

The newest twist is when they bring up the protests as supposed vectors for the COIVID-19 virus, and try to compare that with the spoiled little assholes whining in the streets about not being able to get a haircut or hang out at a pool party. It's fairly transparent that they don't give a rolling red rat's rectum about the virus or the safety of the protesters... they just don't like the protests and are too cowardly to say so out loud.

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?

We all agree you're a moron.

It makes absolute sense for a protest movement in any country to be well versed in Marxist ideology and to understand the honest historical reality of Marx. Understanding Marx and subscribing to some of his theories doesn't make you a Stalinist commie bastard, but losing your shiat every time you hear the word "Marxist" most definitely makes you an idiot relic of a very shiatty America.


I've never heard anyone currently under he age of 50 use the term Marxist correctly or as anything other than as a stupid perjorative.

If the political party that runs nearly everything in this country were capable of ...

1) acknowledging racism has been so integral to this country and it's founding culture that it still exists in a profound way today

2) crafting and implementing policy which attempts to meaningfully address the wrongs created by 1

... this (allegedly) Marxist movement would have no fuel to get off the ground.

So push your leaders and fellow redhats to cut the legs out from under this group and its movement by doing the right things without them. See how that goes.

RasIanI: 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.


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.

I don't actually believe the police are going to do sh*t. Hell, they're probably applauding it.

Viral social media has a way of overcoming what would normally be inertia.


True that, but I wouldn't be surprised if they drag their feet.

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.

And those people came in from the central valley.

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 el ...

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.

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.

Nobody. I stand corrected.

But you seem to think it's a bad thing. Why?

Do you expect them to be Capitalists? What has Capitalism ever done for them?


I'm saying it's a political organization in addition to a social movement and in addition to a phrase that everyone believes in. It's an overloaded term.

If a government starts flying flags of an ideological political organization because the name of the organization is a nice phrase that nobody could disagree with, you need to be suspicious. Especially if people start getting attacked or fired for even questioning it.

If cities started flying Make America Great Again flags, it would be a problem, even if the statement is a nice aspirational phrase. I'm guessing some people would have an issue with that.

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.
