Serious question for my 2A, anti-tyrannical, militia minded friends (who have been very silent lately).

Is this a cop? Homeland Security? Or a paid mercenary?

Do you follow his orders and get in the van, or do you use your 2A rights to stand your ground and shoot first?

You have one second to decide.

What do you do?

I dont have any 2nd amendment rights, neither do you or the vast majority of users on this board. I can think of only 2, Eagle and TB who do. Are they who this question is posed to?

I don't carry a gun to a protest for a start.

I also don't take a job doing whatever it is this fellow is doing.

'People Will Insist That They are Not Racist': Robin DiAngelo on 'White Fragility' and the Way Forward

DiAngelo, a San Francisco-born social justice educator, is the author of "White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism". Her exploration of white people's defensiveness in the face of their own biases was originally published back in 2018, but after ongoing protests against the killing of George Floyd and other Black people at the hands of police, the book was included in many recent reading lists on race. It's now #1 on The New York Times nonfiction best sellers list.

To DiAngelo, white people's unwillingness to see themselves as complicit in a racist system — and their ensuing "fragility" on the subject — is actively hampering the anti-racism movement. As she says, true progress can come only when they acknowledge their own biases. "That idea that 'I'm not racist,'" she said, "is not changing racism. We have to come from a fundamentally different paradigm."

Since most protestors and activists are 100% ignorant of the meaning of the word 'racism it is an uphill battle against these marching mental midgets.

I readily admit I am racist , any who don’t are lying . That said am married with a visible minority and playing golf this afternoon with a group from a different visible minority .
It is possible to be tolerant and racist at the same time .

Your actions mean you are not a racist.
Don’t confuse your freedom of expression and opinions with racism.

My parents' dog doesn't like black people. She always barks at a black passerby when on walkies. It's true.

Wow, great scenario. No details, no premise, no location. What would YOU do? Simply obey orders like a good little sheep?
