Some black person will resist arrest , others will take pictures ,armchair quarterback ,announce guilt .
.Folks like Rachel and Rush will still be running their mouths on how those voted in should think.
Mike will still be looking for his lost files.
Sherry and Bill will $3@&*
Gregory will satisfy his wacky J-peg fantasy
The election will will be a deluge onto the already ''flooded'' river of stupidit

Workers will work quietly while concentrating on their work.

Crybabies will sleep in and dream up more violation nightmares

1. All imagery, including statues, murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends.

2. Mount Rushmore.

3. Religious books depicting a white Jesus.

These have already been proposed by BLM.

Let's not kid ourselves. This will never be over. No matter how much pandering is done, no matter how much appeasement is done, no matter whether reparations are paid or not, the attacks on white history and culture will continue until white people are gone entirely. There is no point at which everyone is satisfied and we all live happily together. I'm sorry, but there's just no evidence that it will ever happen. Multiculturalism will never be successful unless it occurs in a place where all cultures/races/ethnicities/religions/etc. started out on the same footing and never had any animosity. But in our current world, there is too much water under the bridge and people simply cannot let go of their historic grievances. Short of a miraculous case of national amnesia, I don't see how people are ever going to come together and let bygones be bygones. Am I wrong?

The protests will get smaller and dissipate probably--------- but as always there are many eyeballs wanting this ground.
Still I feel this protests stuff and of course ,the--- election ---will blow on over. The protesters will never win the hand to hand ---final battle but they don't look like a coup attempt crowd anyway ,just random strikes
All any enemy needs to do is go for our satellites ,

I think there will be a small but noticeable shift in how people in general see things like racism/bigotry/exclusion/equity/etc., followed by a somewhat longer period of less noticeable change, followed by another "public awareness" period, and so on. 

I think your post in the "Gone With the Wind" thread ["like granny martin used to say,,, its all about ya raisins and manners"] is pertinent here .... the importance of traits  and tendencies (?)  passed from generation to generation can't be overlooked, and in some ways I figure it might be more important than legislation and regulation.  I trust there'll be a general ongoing reduction in racism/bigotry/intolerance/etc.  Where there's life, there's hope.

Should we tear down the Roman Colosseum?  The Greek Pantheon?  The Tower of London?  The Egyptian Pyramids?  Where does it stop?

All of human history has a disgraceful and shameful side to it.  At what point do we acknowledge it as simply "history" and come to terms with it?  Tearing down and destroying things leads us nowhere except destruction.  Nothing is gained, nothing is learned, nothing is healed.  Come on.

All the history that those statues represent are in books in your local library but with the ignorance these SJWs are showing, many have probably never picked up a book but some will try and may succeed in Burning down a library. Or a museum.

Maybe you can start confronting your past and present. I agree that tearing down statues is not enough.

If someone wants me to confront something ,I have already pondered ,they need to pay me in american dollars ,if there is not an obvious reason to do so on my own.

How about the American Flag? A symbol of freedom through bloodshed and sacrifice in the face of tyranny and oppression over the last couple hundred years.

In my time in the military around the world, I’ve seen plenty of people who are offended by our flag for what it stands for, so much that they’ve burned it, defecated on it, mutilated it or altered the colors.

These same people have been welcomed into this country for a long time with open arms...all it will take is for one to say that the flag offends and misrepresents their families or native home lands customs or beliefs.

To them, Old America has had her time to shine...with the New America up and coming...and history being erased left and right, why not erase the global symbol of freedom as well? Because to someone, somewhere on the planet, that flag stands for oppression.

What does this mean?  We have confronted it.  Many times.  How many more times must we rub salt in the wound before we realize it's not helping it to heal?

There is a solution, but the playing field does need to be tilted....NZ has proved that....it take's a lot of commitment to create a peaceful multicultural society....but it is possible.  Restoring Mana to a people that it has been stripped from, takes time and effort.

Great strides have been made over the last 50 years to ensure ALL people, specifically including people of color, have an equal opportunity in the many different facets of life. 
That's 2 or 3 generations worth of people post segregation who have had every opportunity the same  as anybody else to achieve and overcome...and they most certainly have. We most certainly have together. I don't understand why all of a sudden it's an "us" vs. "them" type situation. People the world around have made this a better planet in so many more aspects than it was 50 or 100 years ago.

Will any of it matter 100 hundred years from now? Many of these things will take a generation or more to stifle out. I won't say win because where there is fighting within an ethnic, racial, or religious group within a society nobody becomes a winner. My grandparents had what many in Canada considered a mixed marriage. Not everyone close to them was pleased. She was Irish and he was Scottish. That would be laughed at today but not in 1909.

I beg to differ Paul ---ask yourself this

Just who is the guilty party that did the stripping Where and when did they make that joint decision to --take that mana.
We need that info so we can make this ''organization'' give it back.

A black midget who was a gay bearded transsexual would have a field day on social media......a few years ago they would have just worked in a circus.   What does that mean ?...we are just more getting sensitized to this stuff......that's new.   The problem is not worse, we are just far more aware of it.

If Google is your savior and you want to burn down a few Canadian libraries just for the heck of it, that's a Canadian issue.

I don't know of any U.S. citizens who think that Google is their savior, but maybe that's a uniquely Canadian cult that we've managed to avoid so far.
