My Very Own Method to Help Black Lives:

1) Travel to Africa

2) Get yourself kidnapped

3) Let your government pay ransom money to the kidnappers

4) Get home safely

5) Get rich

6) Buy a nice house

7) Find a hot wife/husband

😎 Get a job

9) Raise kids (teach them to be their own gurus, because your governmental schools won't teach them anything useful and you are too stupid to teach them anything useful either, apart from some survival tricks)

10) Die.

The way I see it, that’s a pretty good life.

Stop being such a wuss. How can you expect to learn anything if you don’t experience the real world?

That’s why I think you should be allowed to travel to Africa and get yourself kidnapped. By god you should experience it first hand.

As for the ransom money, I say maybe you should pay that yourself. You earned it.

But there’s no way in hell you’re getting home safely. I won’t have you throwing your life away like that.

i must be really online and jaded because this strikes me as totally bizarre. I applaud this girl's decision to film this incident, and for that she deserves recognition (which she has already received) but the sobering reality is that it's one of many incidents of police brutality filmed on smartphones. a drop in an ocean really. Events outside of her control and influence caused the George Floyd incident to become oversized and symbolic vs other incidents that were filmed, such as the Eric Garner killing. Ramsey Orta "deserves" this award just as much as Frazier, but he was instead arrested in a plea deal sting iirc. Would Frazier even get this if the jury verdict on Chauvin was not guilty? This "right place, right time" award is also directly in conflict with previous Pulitzer special citation awards in journalism. Can we give a posthumous award to Zapruder?

I agree Zapruder is monumental in history, but this young woman's video caused worldwide protests, even the Rodney King beating didn't revolutionize how some see race in America to this extent.

I personally don’t believe the George Floyd incident and media fallout has done much of anything to “revolutionize” how some see race in America other than further anger and radicalize white supremacists. I am fully expecting a similar incident to occur with much less media attention and the officer will walk.

i live in minneapolis and last week cops shot a guy to death, said he was shooting them first, passenger in the car with the guy said he wasn't shooting. body cams were not on, cops will not be releasing the names of the officers involved. 

same old shit

Yes. Huge sums of money changed hands and nothing meaningfully changed.

Derek Chauvin guilty of murder in George Floyd's death

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/derek-chauvin-verdict-reached-trial-over-george-floyd-s-death-n1264565

Get fucked, Derek.

sentenced to 22 1/2 years in prison

dude will be in ad seg @ oak park but it's still fair to say he'll have to check in correctly considering his high profile case and him being law enforcement.

Floyd is a joke, why the hell is a a criminal shit serving as the mouthpiece of BLM? Is that the best they could pull off? There's graffiti of this idiot like he's a hero. The officer being punished had it coming but the dude held a pregnant woman at gunpoint, not really hero material. Sorry. 

I think it’s ok to be a criminal and not be murdered extra-judicially.

This has nothing to do with the point/argument he’s making. E.g., We are making heroes of men like George Floyd and detracting from great men like John Muir. Welcome to damnation

floyd hasn't been made a hero. his image is a symbol of police brutality. you're confusing the idea of a hero as some kind of powerful life story of grand accomplishments with the idea of a regular person who was unjustly executed by the police.

i live 4 block from where floyd was killed. no one thinks he was a hero lol. it's a reminder of how fucked up our society is. kinda weird you don't get this?

There is a difference between a hero and a martyr.

Floyd’s not a hero, nor is anyone making him one. Instead he is being used as an image in the fight against systemic racism, which is particularly pronounced in US policing. 
The point he was making is moot because a) it’s not accurate (no one is making a hero out of Floyd), b) he’s not the mouthpiece of BLM (and never has been), and c) no one should be murdered extrajudicially.

after i kill someone in the heat of aggression i always love to look back at their life to ensure they deserved to die for stuff i hadn't known about.

this is called "justice"
