I really want to see black america thrive and succeed. I'm a white guy, but we've seen black people excel and rise across so many fields. What's going on hasn't worked and we also know historically, rioting does not work, it does not change anything, its a money shot and its done. I don't blame these people though, purely, its probably modeling behavior and it feels like your only recourse and as a young man I, and probably many of us here, had some kind of a destruction phase. Because when you're young, black or white, you get put in a car thats already rolling and you have no power, and you have no perspective of what takes an hour, or 1000 hours to build takes a minute to destroy. THAT is power.
But its futile and fruitless when you run out of things to burn. You learn that with age I think. So the real power comes in building, things, careers, a job, a family, a life. So rioting, is a failed experiment.
What I'd hope can be instilled is to take this energy of these young people to play the long game. Because white America is probably scared by 10,000 black rioters. But they'd be even more scared by 10,000 black lawyers and CEOs.
