A really powerful and moving image

Re: A really powerful and moving image

What's so powerful about it?

Re: A really powerful and moving image

You have to ask????? Those incredibly sexy white dudes looking like Robocop. It's like the Nazi dudes in jackboots and black and silver. They dominated Europe through their fashion choices.


Actually, it's the image of a gorgeous, calm, young black woman (a nurse and a mother) facing off fearlessly against a bunch of armed white thugs who would kill her in seconds if it weren't for the publicity that would attract.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Lol, I was gonna say.. All I am seeing is some black woman thinking she is god and some white dude's backing away from her crazy ass as though to not appear to be racist or abusive towards a black woman.


who would kill her in seconds if it weren't for the publicity that would attract


This is exactly it.

If there were no cameras around she would have had the other side of their gun rammed into her face knocking her clean out. Bitch would wake up thinking she was medusa and deathstare them even moar.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Either way, she's got the guts and they have the shame. Does this make you feel better?

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Guts? She just looks like an idiot stood there.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Why are they moving her? She was only stood still!

https://youtu.be/scLjz7AIMMg

Re: A really powerful and moving image

She was blocking the road apparently. You'd never have the guts to do that, you cowardly skank!

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Dude, I once went flying off my bike and landed flat out in the middle of the road laughing my ass off as traffic was oncoming. That's kinda the same thing!

Re: A really powerful and moving image

That was comical, not courageous. You should start a movement called Bicycle Moms Matter.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

BMM

I'm very courageous!

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Seriously, though, American cops will often get you after you're arrested, so what she was doing took a lot of guts. They've killed black women after they've been arrested, or have driven them to suicide.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

That's fucked up. And yeah, I know she had a lot of balls standing up to then like that. Hopefully she stays safe.

You asked a pretty question; I've given you the ugly answer.

I love mind blowing gifs and images like that!

Never ending thought….

Rodin's Thinker (gemstone version) on a diamond toilet.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

I knew it was the Thinker, which I happen to love. I had just never seen it like this.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Moving in that it's standing up to The State?

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Standing up to armed white males who have a rep for killing black people. That they represent the State is incidental, and unfortunate.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

You're just trying to be provocative now. I think you should do what FRTT suggested in the other thread. That would be truly provocative

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Are those two policemen dancing 'the robot'?

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Yeah, and they're out of step. Can't get anything right, dumb cops.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

I don't see it that way.

She's just using her vanity to get a photo op for Instagram.

The desire young people have these days to be famous is wild.

Most Handsome

Re: A really powerful and moving image

You don't know white cops. They notch up black kills and boast about it on poker nights.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

If I or any other white guy or black guy had done that we would have been tackled to the ground and handcuffed. She's grandstanding for cameras and that dress.

The cracked mind of the schizophrenic may let in light which does not enter intact minds of many sane people whose minds are closed.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

It has been pretty well established that all forms of courage are geared to the appraisal and applause of our fellow human beings. All soldiers who are brave are brave because they are being watched by fellow soldiers and officers. So she is as courageous, or more courageous, than most men.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Yeah, it took some chutzpah to do that. And I support BLM and even Antifa.

But she's still falling back on a certain female sense of protection afforded by male chauvinism. If you or I did that we would be beaten to the ground and cuffed.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

I was once at a political rally and got beaten up. My partner (female) at the time came to my rescue and also got beaten up. Not cops, but still. I'm not sure women can rely on male chauvinism.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Bentley, in general, if a woman jumps into the middle of the fray, does she deserve "chauvinism?"

Re: A really powerful and moving image

I simply think neither of us should have been beaten. And, since you ask, it's worse to beat a woman. And not because it's chauvinistic to extend protection (it wasn't my word).

Re: A really powerful and moving image

I don't know Bentley. I imagine you probably did something that deserved a beating. Your mouth has a way of putting yourself into situations.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

That's true. I definitely pushed for a beating. But that's the point. If the morons can't refute you verbally, they're forced to be violent.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

I assume this wasn't recent?

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Decades ago. Now I only fight uphill stretches on the road and shoes that refuse to come off.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Right on. I'm not there yet but my day is coming sooner rather than later.

For the record, if we were at a protest today, I know we'd likely be on opposite sides. If I knew it was you I came face to face with, I'd just ziptie your hands and drag you out of harm's way into a safe area before I went back in to party. I'd leave you with a beer and tell you to cool down.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Sounds good!

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Sure, and I know a lot women and especially a lot of black women get beaten by cops. But in that photo, that woman is falling back on her femininity. She's dressed like she's going out to dinner.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

That's like saying a presidential candidate is fake for wearing a suit during his inaugural address. What she's wearing is beside the point. She's a black woman protesting police violence against blacks. Do you want her to look like a beggar from Bangladesh? When you go to court to fight against a defamation charge you look your best, and nobody faults you for it.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Dude, I've done protests. You dress like you're going to war. You don't dress to look pretty for the camera.

It's phony. You know what that pic reminds me of? It's not how you approach the enemy. It's fake. It's hippy dippy like this:

Re: A really powerful and moving image

I've done protests too, probably a lot more than you have. It doesn't matter how you dress. If a protestor is a showboat, good for them. British officers who knew they were going to die in the battle of the Somme had a good shave, polished their medals, and went out looking good. So did knights in the medieval period.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Meh, that broad knew she wasn't gonna get dirty. You can't say the same for George Floyd or Angela Davis back in her day.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Yes, those were more serious protestors who (often) spent their whole lives in danger. But I don't have a problem with protestors who seem to be showboating a little, as long as there's genuine risk. Malcolm X talks about how he would spend hours as a young dude getting his hair or his zoot suit looking perfect. We don't hold it against him (and shouldn't).

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Okay, and I said I do admire her courage. But she knew with the cameras and in her party dress she wasn't experiencing what thousands of black women who have been beaten by the police have endured. I agree she's a pretty symbol.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

You have a point. But I wonder about our tendency to look always for "authentic" acts of courage or rebellion. Is it only worth admiring if the victim is ugly and poor and dies in the encounter? It's almost as if this woman has aroused indignation because she was good-looking, well-dressed, and poised. If she'd been shot she would instantly have become a household name, and reporters would have gushed endlessly about the contrast between her immaculate pre-shot persona and her bloodied post-shot body!

Re: A really powerful and moving image

She would have made a much more appealing martyr than George Floyd, that's for sure.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

She is making me move.

Bum pum, bum pum, bum pum, bum pum, bum pum, bum pum, bum pum

Re: A really powerful and moving image

Where's the article or news blurb that goes with it.

She's pretty, so she could get away without being killed.



Since there is othing against which it can be judged, it's just a picture.

Re: A really powerful and moving image

It's a Bentley post. It's done for no reason other than to attempt to stir up theatrics.

Oh that it is!
