As said before, this is years of pent up frustration. Not just at police brutality (that was the catalyst and the main point of discussion), but at the overall oppression of Black America.
For decades, politicians pump perverse incentives (excess welfare) into the communities, mainly to black women. Then use the racist labor unions to keep black men out of work. Which in turn causes them to be rejected by their partners, because the government is a better financial partner. And then turn to crime, drug use, and other vices. Breaking up the family unit and causing an overwhelming amount of single parent families. Then the wealthy prop up and glorify a irresponsible and hedonistic lifestyle (promoted by hip-hop, the popular stuff anyway) and tell young blacks to emulate these people. Which in turn produces more blacks for the police to profile and/or to turn into a statistic. The end result is decades of generational decline.
This is modern day black oppression. It has little to do with slavery or segregation, contrary to what the masses would have you believe (reparations are totally laughable and will do nothing). Media has blame as well for excessively stoking the racism angle, selling anger and outrage to an already downtrodden peoples. That's for a different rant though.
It's not a coincidence that Black America is beginning to reject the Democrats, mainstream ones anyway. Sure they're not going Kanye-level Trump supporter, but they're tired of the empty gestures from all these white fox liberals (as Malcolm X called them). This is why despite everything going on, presumed opponent Biden is still not overwhelmingly favored to oust Trump.
I feel awful for the innocents being swept up in this. Looting and vandalism is wrong. I don't like that it's being justified, and it neglects the numerous people the lawlessness effects (person themselves, family, friends, etc). As for the mass protesting, this is something that do-nothing urban politicians and dipshit officers had coming to them for a long time. Take responsibility.
