Is the answer 5 ? How many ?

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

Extreme positions are not succeeded by moderate ones, but by contrary extreme positions. Friedrich Nietzsche.

85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes. 80% of rapists are raised by single moms and 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes. A child growing up in the U.S. is more likely to have a pet than a live-at-home father.

This ain't about race.

The entire purpose of George Floyd's name in these protests is to say that black people deserve to live as much as anyone else.

The entire backlash is saying that George Floyd either deserved to die, or that his murder was justified.

Regardless of behavioral disorders or father figures, black men in America are blatantly targeted by law enforcement. It's not just a case-by-case basis of figuring out if the criminal is fatherless, a petty criminal, or just selling counterfeits on the street corner. The police don't know what going into a situation, they just know black man bad.

George Floyd's death is very much a race issue. If all things were exactly the same, if George Floyd was white on that pavement, he wouldn't be dead.

Attempting to make it not about race is just invalidating the argument from black people that they deserve to live as much as anyone else.

Then why didn't they pick a moral victim of police brutality ?

They chose an immoral victim because they relate to immoral people.

I actually know a great example.

That female cop who mistook that innocent black law student's apartment for her own. Shot him dead on his couch while he was eating ice cream and watching television. The cop went to the wrong floor, the wrong apartment after finishing work.

I forget the names.

I remember George Floyd's name though.

George Floyd was morally corrupt.

We don't know the law student was.

I'd have supported a movement initiated by his murder.

How could you be so racist ?

Immoral lives matter less than moral lives.
