Derek Chauvin Trial

I have and have been involved with third world “policing” as an ISAF advisor.

He is not wrong. However there is another component he misses where the police in the US cities are a detached, alien force whereas in other areas(to include rural US) police are a part of the social fabric and local politics in an area. Everyone is going to know the cops indirectly in that circumstance which means many things become conversations instead of fights

Absolutely and I don't disagree. However, in the context of Floyd...etc.

I see regular goodwhites using Latinx unironically all the time. Been seeing it for well over a year now. It's both hilarious and infuriating. My Latina wife rolls her eyes when she sees it.

Maybe the difference is that I'm in a big, very blue city. Hope you're right that it's not catching on, but to me it seems like it already has.
I always wonder how this is supposed to be pronounced. Is the X separate, like Latin Ex, or is it pronounced Latinks?

It seems stupid either way.

Bro you are 5'6" and 225 to 230? Why is your username not Gimli?

I'm just busting balls, you are 100% right trying to restrain an ABSOLUTE UNIT is fvarking HARD.

I'm 240, ex bouncer (when I was bouncing I was more like 260) and 6' 4". A man of that size acting out meant you were 1. Calling for backup immediately and 2. Taking control of the situation as fast as possible, in any way you could. I don't see anything wrong with what Chauvin did.

Factor in that ebony muscle AND on drugs, it's amazing they didn't shoot Saint George...
You're flat out wrong. It may be difficult to restraint a giant, but Floyd was a gentle giant .

I checked the MSM headlines this morning (I still do that for some reason). Saw something about riots on some campus over the black girl who got shot while trying to stab someone. Saw another headline about police shooting an unarmed black man somewhere and involuntarily yawned. It occurred to me that if they're going to always put details like "black" and "unarmed" in the headlines it would be nice if they also threw in a quick reference to whatever crime it was the black unarmed people in question are committing when they manage to get themselves shot. A "...while attempting to commit murder" or "...while passing counterfeit bills, and resisting arrest while high on fentanyl" would give those headlines an entirely different ring.

While we're at it, Imagine if to publish a "white kills black" headline they also had to put any "black kills white" stories that happened at around the same time on the front page.

Is this true or not?

Search this girls name and the full search page is full of the so called "fact" checking sites like Snopes saying this isn't even the girl in the caption.

The photo is fake* but the story is true. From the complaint:

(*Freaking boomers man. The story is bad enough without the visual lie / embellishment. Morons. The goal is to spread the truth only)

The "fact checking" sites are absolute lying.

Anyway, it doesn't matter. Chauvin would be innocent even if Floyd was boy scout.

As one who paid attention in his Latin Classes, I can say...
"Lingua Latina mortua mihi non est!" (The Latin language is not dead to me.)

Which is a lot more polite than what I heard a Spaniard say of Mexicans... ("Tortilla-eating peasants we conquered in a week.")

The other side prides themselves on being "multicultural" and not liking "cultural appropriation" saying "Latinx" is the exact opposite of being "multicultural" and that IS "cultural appropriation."

"English isn't a gendered language... So I'm going to make this gendered language of Spanish neutral because I'm a good-thinking white person, and that's what these brown folk would want!!"

By the way, most people who talk about "multiculturalism" are anything but. Ask such people if they've read ANYTHING from a culture not their own, and you get a blank stare.

"Have you read Don Quixote? How about 'La noche oscura del alma'? Have you read the Tao Te Ching? Tale of Genji? Or you're like me, and you know everything about Japanese culture after watching "The Mikado", surely you have some opinion on the philosophical ideas presented by the Lord High Executioner from that work?" (Okay, that last one is below-the-belt. Productions of "The Mikado" will be banned soon I predict...)

But then, the downside is that the bad actors know where the cops live, where their kids go to school, and so forth.

Does anybody know the name of the person who coined the term “Latinex”? Was it indeed a “white”, primarily English-speaking person?
(That might be useful information to have.)

Ultimately, I think two things are going to happen over the next ten years (and I'm being kind by giving it that long):

1) The cities are going to become far more dangerous - the early aughts renaissance of the cities is now over. (Coronavirus killed it, but the George Floyd unrest dug up the corpse and kicked it a few times.) Police forces will be understaffed and reluctant to engage. People will then avoid going to them for anything other than work. Even if they still live there, it's less of a hassle to have karaoke night at a suburb where you're not going to hear gunshots in the background. I think that once the women begin leaving in droves, the men will soon follow.

2) The suburbs, populated with the people who fled, will then get their own crime problems once inevitable stuff like public housing and public transportation trickles in - we all know that's coming and has been a goal of the progressives for a long time. You see protests out there only occasionally now, but when the criminal element now has largely relocated there, and 60% of the controversial officer-involved deaths are there? They'll soon become a junior version of what the people fled from. I also assume that because many of these people are unrepentantly leftist-minded, you'll see THOSE police forces get neutered as well.

Most people don't have the financial means to then run even further out to rural areas like Tim Pool just did. I think that once the suburbs begin to get dangerous, this is going to get very ugly very quick. Under-the-table, anonymous vigilante groups will spring up, and I really don't want to think about it.

Maybe cities and states can start implementing laws and forbidding new people to move there if they're from cities - but how can that even be implemented? We're screwed.

I do feel the need to PS my last post by saying I don’t mean to blackpill...I just don’t see how this doesn’t get ugly and unpleasant. However, it’s a sliding scale.

With luck, this will just turn into low-level conflict, and that’s the best I can hope for. Perhaps it does end up leading to de facto separation, which I think is the best case scenario.

That is by design, to humiliate the participants. Note there were no riots when this black accountant for a multi national firm was killed while relaxing in his own home:
Reminds me of how the Pride Parade in the big, blue city where I live is held on Father's Day. Not sure if that's the case in every big, blue city, but I became aware of it in my city at a dinner party when a flamboyant gay man brought it up while smirking at me. I was the only straight man with children in attendance and there was a definite tone of "gonna say something about it, breeder?" and his letting me know who was boss.

Same thing with choosing porn star ex-con Floyd as the saint we must bow down to rather than the respectable accountant you mentioned, I guess.
