    Yes.
    Perhaps the change lives in theory, yet not in practice.
    All about false appearances and images.


    Wish the American people could drum up enough of this protesting passion as it might apply to their right to empire that they've put on the world - in their name.
    They're just not knowledgeable or connected to see the real/larger picture.

    Domestic or foreign interventions.
    Seems to be one and the same.

    The problem is that you have laws brought in like the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act, then you get the odious Republicans who chip away at them because they don't like the idea of those uppity negroes being equal.

    'Say hello to one of the heavily-armed, far-right militia members who (along with about a dozen others) has decided to repeatedly intimidate #BlackLivesMatter protestors in Colorado Springs with weapons of war. On this particular day, he set up a sniper nest across the street on top of a city parking garage in order to "contain" and "neutralize" "agitators" at a peaceful rally led by pastors, educators, and activists deeply rooted in this community. CSPD stood around and watched it happen without saying a word to protect the 1st Amendment rights of protestors.

    Now I want you to imagine a scenario where a dozen heavily armed Black men with assault weapons and ballistic vests illegally take over the roof of a public parking garage in order to intimidate a crowd of mostly white folks below.

    Does anyone honestly believe that CSPD would've taken such a hands-off approach?

    I've seen protestors in this city violently arrested by CSPD because the thin wooden rods used to wave their flags were considered "weapons", but this GI Joe wannabe isn't considered a threat to public safety?

    Do better, Colorado Springs.'

    Some great meme potential there.

    The one time in happened in California Ronnie and the NRA suddenly found themselves all in favor of an assault rifle ban.

    Apparently the 2nd Amendment and freedom from Gubmit Gun Grabbers don't mean shit when it's Black men with the guns. Mighty Whitey of them.
