You wanna scare the crap out of white America? March peacefully thru rich, white neighborhoods
Disclaimer: I am a white American.
White Americans often sit in their living rooms and watch these protests take place in inner cities, downtowns, and other areas of cities that arent predominantly upper middle class, wealthy, or white.
Point being, its time to really shake white Americans to their core. Take these protests peacefully thru lily white neighborhoods like The Hamptons, 5th Avenue in Naples, Fl, or other areas where rich whites watch comfortably knowing theyll go to sleep safely tonight. The police wont launch tear gas into the neighborhoods of the wealthy.
That is the only way, in my opinion, to get the point across that Black Lives Matter, police brutality must end, and white people cannot indiscriminately kill African Americans.
This isnt a call for violence. This isnt to say all white people are racist or all police are bad. Its a call to wake up to the fact that my white privilege is that I can go for a jog and no one will think Im committing a crime. Its my white privilege that if I go to the store, clerks wont follow me around or think Im passing a counterfeit bill. To borrow from a meme, even a lot of white people are sick of the racism of other white people!
black folk shot on the spot...
But it would certainly put a lie to the argument that "you need to protest peacefully if you want us to support your cause."
but they, like people today, for the most part only vaguely realized their real enemy lived uptown...they lynched a lot of people of color during those riots before they headed north to burn the mansions.
