Ham, thanks for the photo. You're absolutely right about Rev Martin Luther King jr. And his Non-violent Civil Rights Movement.

But the civil rights protests of the 1960s were not really nonviolent because the nonviolent black protesters were often attacked by white supremacists who could be quite violent.

What happened to John Lewis on that bridge is one example. But there were many others. Like when the Freedom Riders were on the bus and it was set on fire. They barely got out alive.

This just goes to show that you can go into a protest and be nonviolent yourself,

but easily become the Victim of Violent Vigilantes and white supremacists.

I think you missed the point of the cartoon or at least mr6666's post.  MLK's peaceful protest marches were depicted by the racists, law and order, Republican and other right wingers as shown in the cartoon.  Which of course was not true of King's marches - at least not from the standpoint of the protesters.

Problem is that we are now 50+ years later and still have horrendous examples of racial discrimination, abuse and so forth.

Oh, I got the point of the cartoon all right.

Be sure you expand the thing and read his comments.

I'm responding to his comments about his inference that today's BLM protesters are responsible for the violence.

Also, I think it's always good to point out that no matter how nonviolent Martin Luther King's movement tried to be--

They were still met with violent physical attacks by white supremacists in the south. The last one, of which, took Martin Luther King's own life.

Ham, sorry to disappoint you but the hate, the violence extremism the malicious guns are coming from the right-wing trump supporters--

But this is nothing new if we can remember Charlottesville, trump's good neo-nazis.

And all those armed right wing white men forcing their way into all of those state capitols demanding that the states open despite the pandemic.

Armed and ignorant--

But she would have to--

After all she had the nerve to be a birther, when she was born in Slovenia with naturalization papers that may or may not have been legal.

What are "morels?"  I guess the blacks don't have enough of them to live in the neighborhood, but the whites do.

morels:

We may need laws in the other 49 states also to protect the lives of unarmed black men from white racist police officers.

Especially since the federal government, headed up by racist officials, say that there is no problem of police murdering unarmed black people in America.

Unfortunately, George Floyd isn't here today to debate this issue.

 You need to read the first comment.

The law that was passed was in California and since you live in California you probably know more about that law than I do.

I'm not proposing anything except that they copy the law in California that is obviously working.

You read the LA Times so you probably know all about it.

Got it (I didn't open that first link).   Yea,  that is a good law.      CA ahead of the curve yet again.     No wonder Republicans hate the state so much.  

Generally we don't condone racism by anyone.

Trump Tells Agencies To End Trainings On 'White Privilege' And 'Critical Race Theory'

"........

The memo, issued by OMB Director Russell Vought, reads in part:

"All agencies are directed to begin to identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training on 'critical race theory,' 'white privilege,' or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches

or suggests either (1) that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country

or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil."..........

 

........."If we are going to live up to this nation's promise — 'we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal' — we have to see each other as human beings, and we have to do whatever it takes, including taking whatever classes make that possible," M.E. Hart, an attorney who has run hundreds of diversity training sessions for businesses and the federal government, told The Washington Post

"These classes have been very powerful in allowing people to do that, and we need them more than ever. There's danger here."

Trump Threatens To Yank Funding From Schools That Teach 1619 Project

The president has launched yet another attack against education intended to address racism in America.
 
".......The Pulitzer Prize-winning initiative aims to reframe American history around the year slaves landed on its shores and by “placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.”........
 
..........Trump has claimed systemic racism is not a problem in America. ...........

 

“I don’t think any of us believe that the president has deep thoughts about critical race theory or that he’s read the 1619 Project,” she(Hemmer) said. “These have really become watchwords for what the right sees as anti-white racism.”

Trump’s allies have also attacked teaching a version of history that is not flattering to the U.S.  ...............

Trump supporters resist shift to widespread US acknowledgement of systemic racism, poll finds

A new Pew Research Center poll found Democrats have significantly shifted their views of racism in the U.S. since the 2016 election

while President Trump’s base has remained unchanged.

  • Some 74 percent of former Vice President Biden supporters and 44 percent of all voters said it is a lot more difficult to be a Black person in America than it is to be a white person.
  • Just 9 percent of Trump supporters agreed.
  • In 2016, 57 percent of Hillary Clinton supporters held the view that it is more difficult to be Black in the U.S. than white, compared to just 11 percent of Trump voters. ........................

President Donald Trump intensified efforts to appeal to his core base of white voters on Thursday
 
by downplaying the historical legacy of slavery in the United States
 
and blasting efforts to address systemic racism as divisive.
 

Trump downplays legacy of slavery, calls for ‘patriotic education’ in schools

 
".........Trump has already cracked down on anti-racism training sessions in federal agencies. He said Thursday he will soon sign an order to establish a commission to promote patriotic education dubbed the 1776 Commission. The panel, he said, would be tasked with encouraging educators to teach students “about the miracle of American history” and plan for the commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

The move is a response to The New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which highlights the long-term consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans............

The project began after The New York Times Magazine published a series on the 400th anniversary of slavery in the United States. Nikole Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer Prize for her piece in the magazine. Her essay was titled “The 1619 Project,” because in late August of that year, a ship arrived in American with some 20 to 30 enslaved Africans, marking the first arrival of slaves.

The project evolved from the essay and, with help from the Pulitzer Center, educational materials were developed

to enhance the knowledge about slavery, not rewrite history, according to the Times.

 

“American parents are not going to accept indoctrination in our schools, cancel culture at work, or the repression of traditional faith, culture and values in the public square,” Trump said. “Not anymore.”......

Yeah, I just read this on the internet.

Well, I guess while the fat-***ed Donny might BE a freakin' idiot, you AT LEAST have to hand it to the ***hole that he sure as hell knows how to shore up his base.

Uh-huh, his "base", aka the people who've been led to believe that our Founders were "infallible" men, and thus the U.S. Constitution (coincidentally finalized on this very date, the 17th of September, 1787) being a "perfect" document JUST as the Founders wrote it in that year, and thus "all the problems that this country has had since, is all due to later generations of Americans monkeying with it".  Yep, just ask any "strict Constitutionalist" closed-minded conservative ***wipe about this. THEY'LL tell ya!

I hear THAT bit of BS history from them ALL the damn time.

(...but hey on second thought, what's wrong with teaching our youth that America is "perfect", and just like that little phone call the fat-***ed Donny made to that Ukrainian leader that one time a while back?...I mean, once we have a whole generation of Americans who'll jump to attention every time Old Glory is waved in their faces and will then blindly follow orders because "America is perfect", who KNOWS what positives might come from that, EH?!...yeeeeeah, riiiiight)
