do the cops probably have until starting shit, so the uniformed cops can "retaliate?" probably. are there white supremacists and boogaloos happy to have an excuse to riot? sure.

but does that mean the legitimate anger and social unrest, which has been heating for decades and only now reached a boiling point, is somehow unjustified or needs to be excused? no! unrest isn't always pretty. blame the centuries of violence against black people, and cops who escalated at every step of the way.
