    Of course. Everybody is acting. The guy making the vid is playing his part. The Trump protesters are playing their part. Possibly the people he is talking about are to caught up in the thick of things to be acting I imagine.
    Have a great day today

    Chester, I know this is all fake news to you but you really should watch this, it is very, very powerful. It is not about political sides, at all, it is about truth and reality:

    No hypocrisy from my stance friend, my responsibility as a human being requires {my} not picking or choosing in any such way ... And to quote a most recent post via your good friend Bill Ryan (in which i totally agree) ... All Lives Matter !

    Yes agree, all deaths matter, and we may be able to protest this world wide, coffin marches and sad songs, oh boy this could really catch on.

    Colin Capernick thought he would be remembered as an NFL player. He'll be remembered as an icon of freedom and the fight against oppression and abuse.

    People are using his kneeling stance all over the world. If I was him I would have chills. And I would be happy that the world can see it for what it is instead of the BS "he hates the flag" crap.

    Sometimes things happens without being organised, Vern...
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    Whoever these 'masters' of planning are, they get a Big Fat Fail. They can't plan anything.

    People think for themselves. Well most do.

    I agree DT, the Christopher Columbus thing...that's totally random unless it was the Native Americans and they don't usually complain that much, they are too busy ducking.

    This science fiction book gives a damn good perspective on the entire matter:

    Ahhh, to clarify, (as I should have) - when I read your post, I saw it from the POV of the being I perceive giovonni to be.

    But then, I saw it from the way I see some (not you) use terms like this, where they will tell you what your responsibilities should be and yet, when you examine their own actions, you find those actions do not reflect those words.

    I chose to use brevity and where I failed the most is that I use the word, "you" when I should have used the word, "one." I also should have used the term "espouses as a moral responsibility all should share" instead of "picks up."

    Agree... unless "the responsibility" one "espouses as a moral responsibility all should share" exposes one's hypocrisy.
    If I had written my post as this latest rendition, then I would be espousing all lives matter with a knowing that I am not being hypocritical (whereas some who would say such, are).

    No real problem (s) my friend and thanks for clarifying ...
    As Rad has said, text posting is not the best way in
    expressing one's true self emotions ...

    And looking forward to our connecting ...

    Within the context of the recent turmoil that now spans the globe, I see two very critical components that I believe must be addressed. Interestingly (and not surprisingly) is the even greater polarization of the planet, best exemplified as to how it has manifested in the US.

    The first component is the argument placing import on the individual, an individual's marriage to personal responsibility and expressing such in a way that is beneficial for all as well as the individual - experienced as the content of one's character (noting I do not claim to have achieved my own standards in this regard).

    The other component is the need for recognition of the serious, multi-generational collective trauma that chattel slavery (as just one form of slavery) has impacted upon a group who are identified by the color of their skin (ridiculous but nevertheless, a fact - ridiculous in that some can only see "color" and not the individual and their history). The importance in recognizing this is only the first step in a humanity wide goal of healing, because if the trauma(s) are not dealt with then not only will black America and blacks all over the world remain in the grips of the overall trauma and the specific traumas within that overall trauma, but those who do not see themselves under the tent of "black" are also held within the firm grips of auxiliary traumas, generational, early life and adult generated carve outs of the ego states which give rise to conscious entities that lie within each one's personality "in wait" for a moment to break through where the results simply kick the can further down the road.

    So, in a sense, it still boils down to each individual doing their own hard work. But without a full public recognition of the collective trauma which is clearly centered within the black community, the rate of change in achieving the goal of relief will never be swift enough to prevent new trauma producing fallout and thus, perpetuation of the problem.

    This is the challenge of the centuries IMO and upon this Earth there is no greater challenge... many equally powerful, but none greater.
