    Nope!

    We should test it out in Seattle. That would be hilarious.

    Black men are not Black babies and in fact more than half the Black babies aren't even male.

    Webster - Baby
    "Definition of baby
    (Entry 1 of 3)

    1a(1) : an extremely young child especially : infant"

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/baby

    Webster - Child
    "Definition of child
    (Entry 1 of 3)

    1a : a young person especially between infancy and puberty a play for both children and adults"

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/child

    Flo Health Insights -

    "The definition of “baby”
    It’s perfectly normal for people to refer to their developing child as a baby, even before they’re pregnant.

    On the other hand, some people don’t call a fetus a baby until they’re capable of surviving on their own outside the womb. From this standpoint, the fetus is a living organism, but not yet a “baby.”

    Can a fetus be considered a person?
    This is an extremely complicated question, one that has been widely and fervently debated. Some define a fetus as a person at conception, while others say a fetus isn’t a person until it can survive outside the womb."

    https://flo.health/pregnancy/pregnancy-health/fetal-development/when-fetus-becomes-baby

    So, you are using a definition of baby differently than most people consider the definition.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    That's advice that has always been given. No one's ever said "Get into a verbal altercation with a mugger holding a gun. Dying to save your wallet or purse is a worthy cause." You just follow Twitter simpletons who think this is "post-apocalyptic life in a Defund society."

    Unless you have the fabled kata-gun (a katana gun), you're going to struggle.

    thanks for that link EP...that's interesting history. Unfortunately it's all too common

    white America really needs to do a much better job of owning it's own racism and bigotry.

    Trevor would make a great lawyer as well as he argues a point.

    Thanks for posting this Minstrel. Very informative. I really hope that the delay in filing charges against the cops in Kentucky is just that the prosecutors want to be thorough so that there's no chance of this being swept under the carpet. No-knock warrants have got to be eliminated.

    watch that video and realize how little Breonna Taylor's black life mattered to those white cops. Then think about all the ignorant and dismissive arguments against the BLM movement you've seen and heard. And we've seen some of them in this forum

    4 months is a long time to go without any charges or conclusions registered by the DA

    Clearly on drugs, resisting quite a lot, and looking like it’s not racially motivated from the footage.

    not a justified death by any means but I’m not 100% sure this is a murder anymore.
