If you... don't really understand WHY or WHAT rioters gain from looting and burning.
There is an estonian song that is quite aptly named the song of the rebels and it... describes the motivations behind it quite well!
I'll do my best to translate the relevant parts.

Ükskord prahvatab vimm,
mis kogunend salaja.

At one point the resentment will explode
that has gathered secretly


Mõisad põlevad, saksad surevad,
mets ja maa saavad meitele

Mansions are burning, the overlords are dying
the forest and the land becomes ours


Metsad põlevad, maad surevad,
meie saame meitele

Forests are burning, lands are dying
We become ours


Meie põleme, meie sureme,
siis ei jää enam ühtegi orja,
ühtegi orja, ühtegi orja,
ei ühtegi, ühtegi peremeest!

We are burning, we are dying
then there will be not one slave left
Not one slave, not one slave
Not one, not one owner



The point of a riot is not to... debate or to give off a sensible well argumented message.
A riot is the explosion of anger that has been gathering for a LONG time. The anger is to the point, you don't care any more. It is do or die. You cannot just sit still and let things be.
A riot is grief, anger, pain all mixed together. Those people would rather die than live any longer the way things are.

I dunno... I'm nowhere near fully educated on the way things are in america.
I've also never been an SJW fighting for racism to be eradicated.


but I will always respect people fighting for what they deserve. At one point peaceful words just aren't enough and stop working and I think that point has come a LONG time ago in America.

I read a book more recently called The Invisible Man for my english class. It's quite a well known book so I'm sure others know it. It also deals with racism and the same thing happens with riots, looting, and burning. One of the people in the book who took part in burning down the apartment where he lived talked about how he wasn't destroying his life because the life that he was living wasnt even a true life. The book is a lot older and things were much different back then, but a lot of the same ideas apply. I honestly recommend it if you want to get a better understanding of the past of racism in America and whatnot.

The people saying they can't support the cause because the ppl rioting are burning down and looting their own community... Don't understand what riots are all about. Or even bother to think about it.

It isn't easy to understand to be honest, but they should at least think more about why they may be doing it instead of just writing them off like that.

And being mad at them... is like... they are burning down they OWN HOMES at times. Imagine the way they have to feel to even CONSIDER that, never mind actually going there.

I live near the city where the riots are going on, and I feel scared. I never thought that we would act like this, and we’re definitely not used to being placed in the center of attention.

That would definitely be terrifying. I hope everything turns out alright for you.

I ain't denying it, just that it has shit all to do with my thread atm. + that you're right part. I ain't said anything about Obama
I'M SAYING IT IS OBAMA. You're talking about rioting inside, with regards to people's pent up emotions. Obama was gas-lighting between both factions all along. Black people thinks he's a farce too.

And I agree, fuck Obama as well. I ain't an expert on American politics but as far as I know he fixed shit all. Fuck basically all the rulers America has had in I don't even know how many years.

Somebody organize a civil war or smth to restructure the government.

To get THAT far in american politics these days, you HAVE to be a fucking snake.

I feel like lot of times non-peaceful protestors aren't actually there for the cause, but cause it's fun to break stuff...

Not always though, sometimes i think it's those bottled up feelings, and thinking that you aren't being heard and don't have option. Especially in those cases where police tries to stop people from protesting.
