Re: Black Lives Matter

The Bible talks of Satan as an angel of light, the horns and tail are much later additions. It also speaks of being hospitable as some have entertained angels and not known it. Through out the Bible we read of people encountering "a man" who then turns out to be angelic or what is technically called a type of Jesus or The Lord.

And what I am doing I will continue to do, in order to undermine the claim of those who would like to claim that in their boasted mission they work on the same terms as we do. For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.

They get treated the SAME as anyone would in the SAME situation and acting up the SAME way.

And where was the violence in the Floyd case, nomadking? It all came from the police, who compressed his neck for a full 9 minutes. There is no excuse for that, they could have simply handcuffed him. I trust you actually saw the video footage?

It wouldn’t have happened to a pinkskin.

You can interpret the Bible however you like. It’s a good weapon that preachers can use against us and it’s an excellent excuse for people doing bad deeds.

I would be more convinced if you had a photo...

IIRC The violence was in the car. That is why he had to be restrained by 3 officers, one of which would have been on his chest.

Newly released surveillance footage shows an additional angle of the George Floyd arrest where it appears Floyd is struggling with police officers while in the backseat of a Minneapolis police vehicle.

Doesn't happen to White people? Which planet are you talking about?

Disturbing police body camera footage released Wednesday shows a man being restrained by Dallas officers before his death and yelling, "You're gonna kill me!"

Quote:
But his wife Noelle Pama said she doesn’t want her husband’s death to be used by the movement.“What happened with my husband is really sad and it had nothing to do with police brutality,” Pama told Civil Beat Friday.
“The police showed my husband nothing but compassion,” she said. “In my heart and in my soul I don’t believe that there was any foul play.”
...
She said Pama was “combative and punching and kicking the truck’s interior before he slid out of the vehicle and began struggling with the officer and the bystander.”
Officers handcuffed and shackled Pama and he continued to struggle as they called an ambulance, Yu said
Case after case around the WORLD of people dying because they were combative and had to be restrained. The clear message is DON'T STRUGGLE, especially when it's a lost cause. What are they expecting to happen? Are they expecting to simply be let go? It would appear so.

Re: Black Lives Matter

Black is often associated with bad, evil, satanic, etc because that is the colour of the night. Nothing whatsoever to do with skin colour.

From the LA Times four years ago...

https://www.latimes.com/entertainmen...htmlstory.html
Quote:
It seems that every time a high-profile police shooting of a black person occurs, Americans become very interested in the skit titled "How Not to Get Your Ass Kicked by the Police.”

In the skit, Rock delivers a mock public service announcement that essentially says as long as young black men obey the law and use common sense, they will not have any trouble with the police.
Quote:
Some relate to the bitter irony of the skit’s simplistic “public service” message that cooperation with the police will keep them safe. If only.

Rock himself has recently been posting selfies when he’s pulled over by police as a criticism of racially based profiling.

https://twitter.com/chrisrock/status...rc=twsrc%5Etfw
But it’s also clear that the video seems to have a particular attraction for people who want to ignore the part that racism plays in police brutality.

Taken within the context of Rock’s body of work, most audiences see the skit, recorded more than 15 years ago, as parody – a commentary on police racism with a few in-jokes aimed at other black people. Among Rock’s tips to avoid getting beaten: “Get a white friend” to ride with.

But for some viewers, this context has been lost and the old video has taken on a strange second life as a rallying point that allows some people to avoid the difficult discussion of racism.
