Y’all: Don’t loot Target because someone has to pay for that🤧.

The CEO of Target: I completely support the protests and am literally a billionaire. I could rebuild those stores ten times over.

Y’all: OK, well it’s not fair bc what about Lee Rigby?

Lee Rigby’s family: We do not support the use of Lee’s case to silence the Black Lives Matter protests as we support them and the two aren’t comparable as one is an extremist attack and one is police brutality.

Y’all at a party or on the beach: OK, well what about the infection risk?

Disease experts and health experts: *write an open letter to the public supporting the protests as they say “racism is a much deadlier and long lasting health epidemic than covid 19”*.

Y’all: The cases in America are already spiking.

Actual doctors: The time for symptoms to develop is 7-14 days so that spike is actually because of your parties, beach days, and protests that you couldn’t get a haircut.

Y’all: Rioting and looting doesn’t do anything.

Historians: The only thing in history that has worked for the general public inciting change has been a riot,a protest, or a looting- like the Civil Rights Movement, Suffragettes, and Stonewall.

Y’all: Well, violence isn’t the answer

Historians: MLK was peaceful and you still shot him dead, and America is one of the most historically violent countries in the world, how ironic.

JUST SAY YOU DON’T SUPPORT BLACK LIVES MATTER AND LEAVE instead of finding an excuse as to why you shouldn’t care that again and again and again Black people are completely brutalised by police and police are never criminalized for it.

So what you are saying is we will see the effects later not now? As if that's much better.

Disease and health experts are not more qualified to claim that than the average person. They deal with bodily diseases not societal ones. You are invoking false authority.

Also, what's with this "you" bullshit? *I* didn't shoot MLK, etc.

Basically agree with the other points you made though.

By 'you' I think they mean those people who benefit from and/or uphold White Supremacism.

Like you, for example.
