It’s finally happened. The mob attacked Wheeler And there isn’t a peep about in the news.  I heard from someone else and started searching. Nothing.  Was it in your local news?

Were they going to burn down all 20 floors?

I don't know.Fire was in street.The rioters do really dumb things. All they care about is "???" and deleting many cops (head of dept is black) by lowering funding.
I really don't know what they want. I doubt most of the riotersdo, either. Blacks have held high gov't positions via election for years. IMO, they should make sure kids get a hs diploma and possibly one in college or trade school.That helps a lot more than rioting and getting arrest records.

Yes, you have to wonder how they have so much free time to riot. Are they out of work due to Covid? Are they chronically unemployed?  Are they educated? Some are white college students on break.  What about the rest?

Yes, high positions during elections and from being hired.  I only know one Black person who was always unemployed the past ten years but his history was such that he had a good business that failed during Obama’s term due to administration business practices. Then he was in school. He now has a new career and was hired during the pandemic by a rich white person.  Obviously a privileged racist, right? Guess who that person who got the job supports for President? The other Black people I know are a photographer, several doctors and surgeons, a business owner and a school administrator in a big school district, and some church pastors, musicians, and singers and teachers. All successful, some highly successful. Not one of them or their children is rioting.  Not one of them has been a victim of white racism or privilege.

Unemployment insurance?
Other forums tell of very luxurious busses traveling from IL to other places. In checking Portland's list of cop precinct rioters I saw many from out of state.

They were shipped in on touring buses? That is more interesting.
