How Can The Extended Portland Protests Act Like They Operate In The Name of Floyd or His Family? Disingenuous BS!
White young people protesting, and Trump politics must own the arson, looting, and violence in Portland, Oregon BS over George Floyd’s murder. Don’t place this Crap into the African American Portfolio for Historic Social Protest. Current dialog and arguments social justice, fascism with Trump, and Biden are “escapist” BS. You set up the stage and call and respond for a catastrophe that you and “Trump’s division strategies” must own.
Backgrounder (according to Wiki): Protesters want to draw attention a number of Black people killed by local police. The Oregonian identified the 2003 shooting of Kendra James as an inflection point that galvanized the Black community and inspired a movement to reimagine law enforcement fundamentally. The Oregonian reported that the 39 people killed by Portland police between 2003 and 2020 were disproportionately Black. Among those killed since 2003 are Aaron Campbell, Quanice Hayes, and Patrick Kimmons.
6% of Portland Oregon in 2020 is Black
White folks need to have a family meeting about these crazies! Who raised these people? De-centralized leadership of Black Lives Matters is not working for us in this instance.
The dialog between the Portland Mayor and Trump is politically staged and has a predictable end. Biden needs to get off his “bottom” and identify the players here if he is “black enough” since he can ascribe black identity politics. Kamala, “go to work dear…”
This is setting the stage for “civil war” and not “cultural literacy” that must be owned by estranged white groups that need not hide behind Black Folks. You invited this mess and hid behind traditional direct social action and peaceful dissent.
Blacks in Oregan total 2%
All we hear is Black Lives Matter Protest taking the rap for this BS. We are getting played Big Time! Who in Black Lives Matters supports this? Is there no consensus on what BLM is or is doing? The time has come for agreement. Rev. Al and Martin III re-lived a peaceful congregation by thousands. It is possible to agree to disagree.
The Non-Violent Civil Rights Movement supported social justice change to American society through peaceful protests and Constitutional change. The Non-Violent Civil Rights Movement also inspired many Eastern European, African, and other countries. If there is interest in representing our cause read… Anybody can tare up stuff. Take the rap for what you are doing. Most Black folks were watching the news see the Portland debacle as a predictable “set-up”. It creates a new stigma that Black people will get stuck with based on a lack of investigative reporting within our national media.

In Black History Leaders Represented With American Integrity and Grit Their Own Identity Politics King Represented the Integrity of Non Violence, Malcolm X, Stokely and Hughey, Represented the Integrity of Militancy – if attacked! Look at our Black and White Pro Athletes today who Peacefully Protest for What They Believe.
Some Young People Today as is the case with some in Portland Are Hiding Behind The Thousands of Black, White, Red and Other People of Color Interested In Peaceful Constitutional Dissent. Etc.
Many all over the world understand that it is more difficult to adopt faith-based principles and ethics and peaceful means to win much needed local and national goals while addressing policy conflicts with social justice issues. Peaceful Demonstration and Non Violence Works not only for yesterday and todays problems but also for survival of our national “union” and the future of our pluralistic society. If we care about our country the type of protest that we choose is not optional.
American has never been so vulnerable between the COVID19 Pandemic and the Street Culture of Our Protests. I have not heard one Black family with that suffered personal losses due to police shootings or murders recommend violence and chaos as a tribute to their dead loved one. Take charge of your own Identity Politics.
