We’ve been hearing it all too often. “Rioting doesn’t solve anything,” “looting will only make it worse,” “MLK wouldn’t have done this” the list goes on. If there’s one thing we know about looting, rioting and burning down buildings and institutions that have ever done any business with white people – it’s that burning and pillaging is therapeutic.
As Martin Luther King Jr. said, a riot is the language of the unheard. Naturally, we are obligated to take this to the absolute extreme.
If someone says a racial slur to you, you should have every right to retaliate with near-deadly force in a peaceful way. If you feel victimized in any way, even if the perpetrator wasn’t motivated by bad intentions, it’s time to normalize rioting as a way to release tension. Peacefully rioting allows people to release their pent-up aggression and become better, harder-working citizens.
It would be oppression of the highest degree to deny ones right to
purge express one’s feelings of victimization. No one should live in fear of saying or doing the wrong thing as long as they say and do the right thing.
Fact are facts – if you disagree with the #BlackLivesMatter movement, it’s questionable whether or not you really deserve to operate a business, earn a living or should feel free to pursue happiness in this country. Simply put, you won’t find yourself as a target of the peaceful riots as long as you have an opinion that is in line with liberal and progressive values – and if you’re a good person, this won’t be an issue. That’s a good thing.
