    It irritates me to see all this rage over the murder of a grown man when
    there are children who have been murdered. It's not the first time a white person has killed a black person, but it was an opportune time for Democrats.

    If Joe Biden wins his election, he ought to thank George Floyd & Derek
    Chauvin.

    I know, right?! 12 year old Tamir Rice was murdered within
    two seconds by a cop, even though the person who called the
    police on him said that he thought the toy gun he was playing
    with was a toy, and that Rice was a child.

    It's not the first time a white person has killed a black person,

    Nope. We've been doing it for 500 years.

    but it was an opportune time for Democrats.

    What heartless tripe. Do you have no compassion?

    I have compassion for crime victims, certain Democrats don't.

    Joe Biden & Andrew Cuomo both exploit crime victims. Joe does it for votes,
    and Andy does it out of pure evil.

    Hello Aaron,

    If Joe Biden wins his election, he ought to thank George Floyd & Derek
    Chauvin.

    On Monday, Joe Biden will be meeting with the Floyd family in
    Houston to show his sympathy for their loss. Not at the funeral
    service itself, as that would draw attention away from all who
    will be attending, although he is preparing a video to be shown.
    He will not be visiting or meeting with Derek Chauvin now or at
    any time in the future, and most definitely not as president.
    As such, the only visitors Chauvin can expect during his time
    in prison will be from his family, and his lawyer.

    A video for what? To use in one of his campaign ads?

    "Joe Biden cares about blacks." <play video of Biden at the funeral>
    "Donald Trump wasn't there." <play video of Trump playing golf>
    "So this November, elect the only person who cares about blacks." <photo of smiling Joe Biden.>

    Is that the kind of video that is to be shown?

    You'll have to wait until Monday to find out.

    "Joe Biden cares about blacks." <play video of Biden at the funeral>

    "So this November, elect the only person who cares about blacks." <photo of >smiling Joe Biden.>

    I have no idea. I won't be at the funeral service. But I am sure
    many others will be. Perhaps the news media will inform us, and show
    clips of the video shown at the event.

    Don't even need to bother. Just show a video of
    Charlottesville with Donald Trump's voice talking
    about "very fine people on both sides" superimposed.

    Or just show a video of Trump babbling about the
    economy and how George is smiling down.

    Or any number of other stupid racist things Trump
    has said.

    These things are only racist if you interpret them that way. It's better to keep a positive attitude, and to give people the benefit of the doubt.

    Besides, what difference does it make to prove a point of somebody being racist? Has Trump taken any adverse action on any racial group as president?
    I haven't seen that yet.

    about "very fine people on both sides" superimposed.

    The focus should be on the life of George Floyd, not Donald Trump.
    After all, it is a funeral service, celebrating the life of a man who
    was brutally murdered, for no reason, by four cops.

    Or just show a video of Trump babbling about the
    economy and how George is smiling down.

    Again, it is not about Donald Trump. And should never be turned
    into such. It is about the life of a man who is missed by family,
    relatives, friends, and an entire nation.

    Or any number of other stupid racist things Trump has said.

    There were three funeral services for George Floyd, in three
    different cities, as those cities were his places of residence
    during his brief 46 years on this dirtball we call Earth.

    All of those funeral services were about celebrating and honoring
    the life of a man who should still be alive today. It is not about
    others, including those who took his life or even the president.

    George Floyd, RIP

    No, it's pretty explicitly racist. Why should I give
    Trump the benefit of the doubt on _anything_? He's the
    President of the United States, and he's been in that
    job for years now. Either you're saying he's incompetent
    (which, to be fair, we know that he is) or he's got
    shit advisors (which, to be fair, we know he does because
    he fired all of the ones that were remotely competent)
    or he's a racist (which decades of history, going back
    to lawsuits against him _from the 70s_, show him to be).

    So which is it?

    That wasn't adverse action on a racial group, that was adverse action on illegal immigrants. What do you want him to do - lock up just the parents & then let the kids run around homeless & illegal?

    Do you want him to run some special like Denny's "Kids illegally migrate
    FREE?"

    You're probably pissed because those children were supposed to become your
    sex slaves, but Trump foiled your plan by protecting them in the 'cages.' You and the Democrats will have to come up with a better plan for your
    enslavement.

    Yeah. But in this hyper-partisan era we are in,
    everything is political. I am not saying it should
    be. Only what is.

    Again, it is not about Donald Trump. And should never be turned
    into such. It is about the life of a man who is missed by family, >LL>relatives, friends, and an entire nation.

    Again, the immediate context is Joe Biden's political
    advertising. Of course that will be at least
    partly about Trump. George Floyd's funeral is
    a separate matter.

    As a society, we have separated ourselves into two separate and
    distinct camps. With nothing in between. This is hyper-partisanship
    at its worst. It will not remain this way forever. It will break
    one way or another. But until it does, both sides will remain
    talking at each other, rather than seeking a common ground.

    What makes the protests so different from times past is the number
    of groups participating as one. A multicultural movement, never before
    seen in US history.

    We may be entering uncharted territory here ...

    note: Will be introducing new threads. Hopefully of interest to all.
