You go sister! 💕 Except I do think there is a difference btw cop violence/murder and criminals. Police have power and the system protects/lies for them. Police also meant to protect us. However accusation of hypocrisy stands re protestors. How are they changing the world?

I can’t believe this needs saying. Why should teachers have to tweet about the American riots? Note he is having to explain that these teachers are not racist just because they haven’t tweeted. We have lost our minds. 🤯

Exactly. Or to assume the man is a great guy when you can plainly see he is not! It is a v odd position to take and suggests a huge amount of bias.

I thought Christians were meant to forgive? Or do they believe that police should murder individuals with a criminal past whenever they like? The issue is less about Floyd and about the fact that some ppl wish to defend that policeman!

Why are you sure of that? A man who murdered someone while being filmed doing so and didn’t bat an eye? Why are you so convinced of his altruism and in him fulfilling his duty? What do you know about him that we don’t know?

MUST READ. is a rare breed who thinks for himself. 🙂 "It would be easier to join one side. At least I’d have some support... As tired as people are in this war being on one side, being a free agent means you have to fight both."

I turned on the news to watch the commentary on the riots and could only stomach 5 mins. There was so much material to write a whole book on what I was seeing and hearing. A young black British woman said, ‘Black lives matter as much as climate change’ No no no...🤯

It is both. Although for some I suppose it could be either/or

How is this beautiful? This isn’t people being more informed about racism, more knowledgeable about history or talking. This is guilt- always bad - think - boy stays with girlfriend out of guilt - is that good? Nah. Guilt is bad cause it makes you do crazy mad stuff like this!

Just pre-ordered my copy. If anyone hasn't read 'Battle Hymn of the Tiger Teachers' you are missing out on some great insights into pedagogy and attitudes towards teaching in general!

Agreed. ‘In Detroit, 37 of the 60 people who were arrested in overnight protests did not live in the city — and many came from nearby suburbs, police Chief James Craig said Saturday. Although Detroit is about 80% black, many of those arrested were white.’
