I did not say anything about victimization in general. I only said that Minnesota did not learn from the LA experience with Rodney King and did not take just measures against the perpetrators. Does not mean that no one learned.
Ok my apologies

Anyway, I'm sure that we all agree that rioting and looting is wrong, and must not at all take place.

I hope that the rioters will indeed come to their senses. Because all this isn't helping. Not at all. It has and will make everything worst.

But in condemning the riots, let us not lose focus on the issue of police brutality.

Even if someone is in the wrong, every effort should be taken to preserve the offender's life. Let them stand before the judge, let them serve their time. Who can say whether they won't change their life around to becoming law abiding?
This is ideal, but it looks like people are fed up as though the government has been disappointing them time and time again.

I listened to an interview with Akon, the African singer who grew up in America. He had the privilege of experiencing both worlds. These are his words"The American system was never made for black people", still wondering what he means by that.

I also listen to Trevor Noah on 'The Daily Show, he also had the privilege of experiencing both worlds. " He says black people should have a meeting with the government", Using the words of Akon, I am assuming that they will be addressing the system that is not favoring black people. You should listen to Trevor Noah, his a genius and knows how to address the issue of racism. I have never had anyone explaining the issue of racism the way he does.

I also love watching Daystar channel, I adore the Lamb family, looks like they have mastered the art of putting oneself in someone's else shoe. They are always defending black people against the brutality of some police officers.


My prayer for African Americans is for them to be better and not bitter, they should also fight against the temptation of having a victim mentality because not every white person is against them, also understanding that God has given them a purpose on earth. Proverbs 19:21" Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. No system or any evil intent can stop God's purpose over their life , so they should become the best version of themselves and fly high like eagles 🦅.

Do black lives matter? Or is it just high profile black lives?
There's not a whole lot that can be done about crime and gang violence.
However police officers can quit killing people for no reason

and protesters could not be violent and be looting stores, which has lead to the military rolling through the streets...

Protestors do not loot stores and they do not use violence. Inciting a riot is a misdemeanor offense that is punishable by extensive fines and up to a year in county jail. Trump wants them charged with terrorism and to be given up to 10 years in jail. The general belief is that supremacists are stirring people up to lead them away from a peaceful demonstration. Although we know that satan is the real cause. People are being charged with that crime right now. Any bottle with gasoline and a rag become a molotov coctail.

So we just be mum about it? Sit back on our hands and do nothing while young black men are being murdered in the streets? Kap. can't take a knee to bring attention to that?! But he can wear cops are pigs socks. Any cop who kills a person should be in prison. That doesn't make all cops killers, that doesn't make the majority of cops killers. Nail the guy responsible. But burning down cities, looting and burning all in the name of what? Nothing. Anarchists trying to take down a president, plain and simple.

Those two sentences seem to contradict each other. At the very least, nothing happens without a reason.

Whether we know the reasons or could agree with them is another matter entirely.

Between this and the church closings, I'm waiting for Governor Beshear to change his wardrobe to drab military-chic.

Whether you like him or not - This is one of Tuckers finest monologues. He pulls no punches, and he exposes what is really going on... Warning: his honesty is direct and many will find it equally offends all who are either being deceived or guilty of deceiving US...

Tucker: Our leaders dither as our cities burn

Judging from the sources provided by @posthuman in another thread, it looks like many of the rioters/looters are white, right wing extremists.

Song playing right now.. perfect timing.. again Father.. thanks "My feet are on the Rock" By I am they.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Angels wear armor. Michael was fighting Satan for Moshes (Moses) body. Gab in Daniel had to call on Michael for help. I know for many its heard to see. But what you see is not real. This is not your home. You are not from here. And you are a chosen people.. you are the children of promise. And you were given all power all authority over the enemy. This enemy does not listen or obey God.. if he did then.. he would not come to kill steal and destroy for God does not do these things. And no angel would need armor and.. yeah I don't think a angel guarding the the garden with a flaming sword was there to keep out Adam and Eve lol. Seems SOMETHING not man got in that was not supposed to.

Out side of America the supernatural is very real. But.. if we don't see it hear it feel it..duh its not real. Yet from some reason were told to HAVE PUT on the full armor of God.. whos armor? Your Father. Think about that.. Put on the full armor of GOD! How many kids want to use put on something of Dads or moms? Hello.. we GET TO! But why? Because there is a enemy out there that does what He wants.. kills steals destroys..we see this every day. But.. on a Christian site.. forgive me.. I looked for words found twice.

We HAVE the answer to all this. We have our Fathers ear. Were told where this fight really is. Oh as awful as this was.. not going very far at all has happened I believe 3 or 4 times... just like this. But no one said a word. And then the same thing has also happen to more white people. OH I truly hate having to see color. Nothing new for me.. my dad was Nez Perce Indian and my wife is 1st gen Chinese. Yeah.. we know how people think about the virus. yet.. not where the battles at.

Oh.. and did you know again as awful as this is.. its went down ALLOT! They thought it would be higher...yet its very low. They were shocked. Yes yes some NEWS media you can't trust.. shouldn't be watching them anyway. You have God in you.. and the sweet Holy spirit knows whats really going on.. pray ask Him. Take time to LISTEN.. know His voice.. can't just do it a few day and..well Hes not ever going to talk. No He saw that day.. that was the moment you keep STANDING knowing He will talk. And it will always be back up by the word.

So.. there is nothing that has more power then ONE believer. Think about that. Every fallen angel every demon has to flee from the GOD in you. You were given ALL power over him. But if you don't know it.. he will stomp on you every time.

So.. also know your not alone. You can't see them but your FAMILY.. those countless other angels there to help.. they are ALL there for you.. you have nothing what so ever to fear. But..again...if you don't KNOW IT.. the enemy will use that against you. A story I believe but you can take as grain of salt. What I remember is.. he said.. two demons were standing at his door. He said one was bold no fear.. the other look scared. The man didn't know what to do.. haha.. sorry the song playing right now "YOU MAKE ME BRAVE" prefect timing again...well the next part of this was.. the man said he heard this huge rush of wind.. said "I don't know if it was JESUS or an angel but I didn't care" He said this hand one on this shoulder and now felt this power and authority and said.. so.. if your staying I have couch..if not get out in Jesus name. He said.. they only left when they KNEW that He KNEW the authority he had.

Thats just it.. do you KNOW who you are...whos you are and the rights and authority you have. What we see does NOT have to be this way.. granted it will get far worse but.. were still HERE! And as long as we are no demon no fallen angel can stand against us

What do you think? Will waving a Bible in front of a Church sort it?

Our country is going up in flames, literally, as anarchists take over the streets. They have spray painted churches with [email protected]$ on the outside. They have looted, burned and decimated businesses people have spent their lives building. They are trying to bring down this country. They don't care about a random black man who died, they don't even know his name. Chicago has had 191 people murdered to date. If black lives matter, why don't their lives matter?! People want this rioting to stop. They don't want churches defaced, businesses burned, their cities left in shambles. Floyds own family don't want it. Stealing big screen tvs, Nikes and cases of beer and burning a city to the ground is not protesting. It's rioting, there is a difference.

And yet the videos show that not to be true. Already re-writing it. Whatever side you come down on, I challenge everyone to watch Tucker Carlesons program last night. He nailed everyone, every side. Give it a listen and see if you don't think you find some truth in what he's saying.
