I understand both of your point-of-views, because, really, the older generation is damn near burned out by the magnitude and depth of the extreme violence and indifference and disrespect and lack of empathy of many in this generation. At the same time it has been young people, historically that have did the majority of the protesting and demanding and bringing about change.

If the cops are not wearing their uniforms, how the hell are folks supposed to know they're cops? Are they cops when not uniformed, or men wandering; frisking; wanting to make a kill? These cops are no different from the Crips and Bloods, really. LAPD/NYPD = LEGALIZED criminals. Let's just hope the NYPD doesn't cremating.

Government incompetence trumps its ability for function. However, “activist” is now a dirty word since passive citizens are preferred over active citizens - although this is not so in a democracy by the people of the people. Americans call Americans “sheeple”. No doubt, citizens are farmed and milked for their money and energy. No one is really protesting anyhow.

As long as the American majority refuses to accept that too may psychopaths and sociopaths have been given positions of power and 'authority' , and that America's racism problems stem from that FACT , racism is not going to ever end in this country, and racism, along with all of the other pathologies of psychopaths and sociopaths being socially normalized and legally codified into America's social, governmental, and political structure, i s going to be the means to America's end .
