I know I know - it's The Daily Moan so will be dismissed out of hand by some, but I was interested in the pictures of the sheer number of people in attendance.

How is Covid so intelligent that it'll avoid infecting the tightly-packed 000s who attended the protest about the killing of a man on another continent, but I can't bloody well go to the pub tonight because I'll either infect people or be infected?

Well I'm not racist (not by my definition, anyway). But I didn't have anything to do with the sad death of this cove in America and nor did, I would imagine, anybody in this country. I expect white people die in police operations in the US as well, but we don't hear too much of them. But even if we did, once again, it's nothing to do with us. Seeing our police officers...

BLM protests are occurring all over the world. Not just in London.

They’re not simply protests over the killing of one man.

And they are much more important that going for a pint.
I entered this week, June 2020 as a racist and I am leaving this very week as a more resolute racist.

These demonstrations in London are totally unacceptable and I fear worse to come this evening.
What a disgusting thing to say!

I believe we live and learn and the sooner our racist generations die the better really...
My Dad was horribly racist and I am still learning to not be the person he was.

And I hate to think what effect all this will have on the virus which is by no means eradicated. Utter morons!!
My God, I feel sorry for your Dad.

As a Londoner yourself I note in your absentia the silence was deafening from you with regard to the several stabbings per week in the Capital between rival black drug dealing gangs. The death toll must amount to about 300-400 by now. Did their lives not matter?

You've totally missed the point SP.
//I entered this week, June 2020 as a racist and I am leaving this very week as a more resolute racist.//

At least you're honest about it I guess, rather than the "I'm not racist but..." types who are spewing some of the most racist guff I've seen on here.

Mozz - that's always been one of my favourites "I'm not racist, but..."

That's right up there with "with respect", and "I've got lots [enter whichever race or lifestyle is being discussed]... friends"

Was this in the period when I wasn't on the AnswerBank?

I go through periods where, because of work pressures, I don't come to the AnswerBank. I simply don't have time anymore.

But with regards to your points, I completely agree with this comment from the link I posted:

//Why should a civilian advocacy group speak out against criminals just because its members share the same skin colour? Shouldn’t it be a basic assumption that everybody agrees killing is wrong?//

//It’s like blaming Greenpeace for climate change, asking its activists to be accountable for hurricanes, floods and droughts even as they fight the very conditions that give rise to those problems.//

//It’s like asking white LGBTQ advocacy groups to be accountable for the actions of the alleged gay village serial killer Bruce McArthur.//
It's no good shouting that 'all lives matter' and then putting all those lives at risk from the virus. Have they no common sense?

I expect white people die in police operations in the US as well, but we don't hear too much of them. But even if we did, once again, it's nothing to do with us. Seeing our police officers ridiculously down on one knee appals me. They are supposed to be impartial.

Regretfully my getting a haircut and having a pint in my local are far more important to me than something I had nothing to do with. I can't do either of those things because the virus is, apparently, still spreading. Well it's going to spread a bit more now with these idiots marauding around the city illegally. The next thing we will hear is how disproportionately affected by the virus "BAME" people are. Well they'd be a bit less affected if they didn't roam around the streets mob handed.
''My God, I feel sorry for your Dad.''

Please don't, he's dead, so really wouldn't give a ***
What's the point of being impartial on the question of whether or not it's OK for the police to kill somebody in their custody?
//What's the point of being impartial on the question of whether or not it's OK for the police to kill somebody in their custody?//

They are supposed to be impartial when policing the streets. Faffing about on one knee shows allegiance with the demonstrators whom they are supposed to be policing.

As for the incident itself, nobody knows how the death arose, what went before what was shown on the telly or any of the associated circumstances.
Having spent 11 weeks self isolating and, having seen the general decline in virus infections and the easing of lockdown, I am horrified at these demonstrations. Why not wait until we are clear Covid? I can give these people no support at all, as they are utterly selfish.
Watching sky news , missiles be hurled at police horses!!!!
@newjudge.... please tell me you're not a real Judge!
I saw that Bobbi those poor horses. One got a bottle on its head and hardly moved. I've been watching those idiots, and as unpopular as it will be, I hope Darwins law kicks in because I reckon over half of those morons don't give a flying F about Black lives matter - they just want and excuse to have a fight with the authorities.
There is footage [ I will try to find it] of police in the US using horses to trample people.
Horses never asked to be there, they should not be used by humans in this way...
but hey... you knew I'd say that.
