My biggest fear is that RW extremist will use Dallas to accomplish what they have longed for...

a race war against POCs..not just blacks because in many cases they really can't tell who is and who isn't African American.

These cowards will begin all kinds of anonymous shenanigans and may even shoot at a few cops to get things started. The FBI should be monitoring social media very, very closely...at home and abroad.

Though I hope being in Liberal San Francisco, we are fairly safe. Than again, many in this city remember the Zodiac killer, so nothing is out of the realm of impossibility.

There are more of us than them and more of us coming. White racists are the minority and continue to dwindle. The shift has not effected who has the power yet and the old dinosaurs are spitting mad giving it up.
But if it comes down to it, this old white woman is standing with poc. I told my family and friends that is where I will be. To paraphrase the queen mother, my daughter stands with my black grandson and I stand with my brown daughter. We will not abandon each other in difficult times

straight. As I recall some of them hate all law enforcement except county sheriffs, some hate everyone who is not lily white, some hate everyone who is not Christian, some just hate Muslims, others try to lump Jewish people into their hate field, some hate Democrats, some hate environmentalists, some hate poor people and on and on. This just about covers the RW agenda.
Somewhere in there, some will see this horrible time as an opportunity to experience their biggest adrenalin hate rush by creating chaos.

We don't even know for sure that the original event happened as they say it did.

about a third of the population are outright fascists and most of the media are undependable at best when it comes to delivering the truth about anything, situations can often be very different from the way they appear.

There has been a continuous war against black people in this country for the past several hundred years.
