    How about a guide on how whites can protest?

    • SeattleProgressive8 says:

      We already know the answer to that. Torches? Fine. Baseball bats? Fine. White hoods? Fine. Violence? Fine.

      It’s pretty clear, really.

    • Michael Calder says:

      What is the black crime rate in Seattle? Oh that’s right. You don’t have any blacks. Nice to live in an all white ivory tower.

    • SeattleProgressive8 says:

      Obviously, you’ve never been to Seattle. But keep on keeping on with your racist self.

    • Michael Calder says:

      500 homicides in Chicago this year. Most of the suspects are black males. But white people are the problem.

    • SeattleProgressive8 says:

      When you have so many black people stuck in abject poverty, what do you expect? Poverty breeds violence. Our structural inequality is driven by white people, not black people. Try to think just a little bit deeper, instead of following simplistic logic based on nonsense.

    • james warren says:

      The guide is called the United States Constitution. And it guides ALL Americans.

    • Michael Calder says:

      So does the criminal code.

    • james warren says:

      And criminal codes are operable under the U.S. Constitution. This is why we have a court system.

      You cannot put people in jail for protesting mistreatment of African Americans by taking a knee or sitting down during the national anthem. Those who think otherwise are fear-based, skeptical of democracy and constitutionally ignorant.
