    And stupid rhyming slogans like "Silence is Compliance". IOW, unless a person goes marching around like a boob with a ring in their nose then they are being silent and compliant. I refuse to be corralled.

    Oh please Jim - racial disparity in what sense?

    I think he might end up as Biden's running mate. There is no rule against a former president running as a VP.

    Third term by proxy.

    Won't help at all. Garcetti tried that strategy here in LA. Rolled out a bunch black community leaders on camera, to no avail. Everyone is assuming this is only driven by police brutality and racial tension, but it's not.

    Calling down martial law would either create bigger problems, or would make the problem worse.

    Why? Perhaps it will stop the burning and looting in its tracks. Nothing else seems to be working...

    Obama had his chance when he was president, but he set racial relations back by decades.

    The building fires are few and in between. Looters just care about getting the stuff. I suspect, since it's a very small percentage of buildings being burned, it could possibly be the owners themselves doing it to collect the insurance. Think about it. If you're a store owner, what are the chances you don't have theft insurance, but have fire insurance?

    I don't think so --- he seems much more interested in being admired, and has no real strength for this kind of thing.
    Besides, he was much too quick to jump to conclusions in a number of other incidents both police-involved, and police as victims.

    Even my black friends say he squandered his opportunity to bring peace - he had EIGHT YEARS to do it.
