    What do you expect from a state that is represented by Turtle McConnell and Rand Paul who also just held up anti lynching legislation

    The only thing I expect now, is white people to step the fuck up. Those that aren't are part of the problem like I've been saying in this forum for YEARS.

    White Silence = Violence

    It is no longer enough for white people to simply not be racist. If you really give a shit why I'm afraid for my beautiful son everyday, you MUST become ACTIVELY antiracist.

    When does my son change from being beautiful to a threat?

    I always tell the truth. I sometimes lie.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    The murderer also faces federal hate crime charges that could result in another lifetime sentence.

    Was concerned they might get off with Rittenhouse getting off. Would have been really bad. It would have set a deadly precedent. We would have posses chasing black people down the street left and right.

    I wasn't concerned about this one in the least. There was no doubt here. These guys are racist murderers.
    Plain and simple.

    One of the defense lawyers helped remove all but one black citizen from the prospective jurors and tried to fill the jury with "bubba's and Joe six packs." I was concerned a predominantly white jury in a southern conservative state would vote not guilty. Glad that didn't happen.

    Yeah, I just don't know what legal grounds could have been used to get them off...

    I assumed KR would get off with self defense. That case was a loser for the prosecution from the start.

    Defense lawyer claimed Black preachers with bibles intimidating. White men with guns not so much.
