Re: the real picture (BLM)
The terminology I identified on the BLM site and in Genomicus' post is Marxist whether you like it or not.

And Jesus was a Socialist Communist whether you like it or not! Want to play dueling assertions?

Re: the real picture (BLM)
You know nothing of Marxism and nothing of Christ either.

Re: the real picture (BLM)
It's been fascinating to find out that you are a true Marxist yourself, I mean totally Marxified. "Critical Race Theory" yet. "De-construct" yet. I recognize those terms as Marxist along with the others I've been discussing here, but obviously nobody else does.

If you can muster a well-reasoned, non-emotional, "I-hope-you-choke-on-it"-free refutation of Critical Race Theory, then present it. Saying something or someone is Marxist is not a critique, or even an insult, for that matter.

(Do you know what "de-construct" really means? It means you feel free to trash other people's thoughts and substitute your own, your own of course being today's Marxist party line.)

No, it doesn't.

There is no systematic and institutionalized racism in America...

Then why is our winner-takes-all Electoral College voting system still used in the South, which has a legacy in racism and white supremacy and ensures that the Southern black vote counts for nothing (see, e.g., "The Illegitimate President: Minority Vote Dilution and the Electoral College," Yale Law Journal, 1996)? That's institutionalized racism. If all you white right-wingers actually cared about eliminating unfair and unjust power structures, why do you cling to this voting system?

We're in really bad shape if you're representative of what the universities are turning out these days.

Lol.

But I have actually read the Bible and actually read many of the writings of Marx and Trotsky and works by Juliet Mitchell and works by Marcuse and Adorno and even the heretical dangerous "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" by Walter Benjamin as well as other Marxists you did not mention so I actually have a clue what is really in those writings instead of the bumper sticker propaganda you seem to prefer.

What you claim as Marxist is simply a poorly done caricature of Marxism, a pitiful joke and as great a perversion as your caricature of Christianity.

The facts are that in most cases riots are counter productive but in almost all cases happen for reasons. Whether it is opposition to the fascism being marketed by today's so called Conservative or the sheer ignorance that led to the Zoot Suit riots or the riots caused by the Conservative opposition to integration or the racism that led to the cities burning of the 60s and 70s, the causes are almost always oppression, not political philosophy.
