It is a shame that young, white radicals continually hijack the Black Lives Matters protests and turn them into violent, disruptive riots.

Felt like that deserved a double post.

Also as the guy near the end of the video said, they get to go home at the end of the riot, black people are still black at the end of the riot, and get blamed for it.

I?m so p.o?d right now.
I made a tweet about the fact that it?s frustrating that deathcare workers aren?t considered on the same level as healthcare in regards to the pandemic despite the fact that the people that take care of the deceased are just as exposed to covid and this girl that was in my sorority responded with ?death care workers? 😂? and I?ve never been so pissed off in my liiiiiife. If she didn?t know what that meant she could have just asked, not been so insensitive about it.
And her grandmother just passed away, so the very people that are caring for her grandmother right now are the ones she?s apparently laughing about? Like wow way to respect them and all they?re doing for your family right now.

That sucks, Claire. I understand, My grandmother died from cancer a couple months before the outbreak and lived in a major city that ended up having a very high case number. If she died a couple months later she wouldn't have been able to see friends before she died and my family wouldn't have been able to attend the funeral.

That reminds me of a thing I wanted to rant about. People should be allowed to decide whether they're willing to risk exposure to go to a funeral of all things. People can march the streets in massive groups, they can shop and travel etc. but FUNERALS are where people draw the line??

I mean, oftentimes funerals are organized by a company that?s required to follow mandates or face fines so they have to enforce limits and social distancing.
