    EGGzackly. And each and every instance of police abuse that has come to light has been dealt with BESIDES police departments exposing and dealing with their OWN problems.

    This is all about a bunch of anarchists wanting to destroy the fabric of society, and using BLM to accomplish that.

    Oh, you were, were you?

    You mean I don't agree with the anarchists.

    No, I simply mean MLK understands why riots happen, while you seem to be threatened by it. I expect pastors to be a little more informed about what happens when the consequences of evil national acts carry over to the next generation and sick societies crumble. Isn’t this what you were expecting as a pastor who preaches on eschatology?

    You really can’t mean that every act of police abuse and brutality (since, say, the 80s) has been made right.

    People shouldn't feel threatened by riots?

    She distinguished “the blacks” from “the people.” Freudian slip.

    I don’t think Christians of all people should feel threatened by anything, especially civil unrest.

    Who cares if she is a racist? You're never going to completely remove racism from society. What are the ramifications exactly whether she's racist or not?
