You wanna scare the crap out of white America? March peacefully thru rich, white neighborhoods

Disclaimer: I am a white American.

White Americans often sit in their living rooms and watch these protests take place in inner cities, downtowns, and other areas of cities that arenít predominantly upper middle class, wealthy, or white.

Point being, itís time to really shake white Americans to their core. Take these protests peacefully thru lily white neighborhoods like The Hamptonís, 5th Avenue in Naples, Fl, or other areas where rich whites watch comfortably knowing theyíll go to sleep safely tonight. The police wonít launch tear gas into the neighborhoods of the wealthy.

That is the only way, in my opinion, to get the point across that Black Lives Matter, police brutality must end, and white people cannot indiscriminately kill African Americans.

This isnít a call for violence. This isnít to say all white people are racist or all police are bad. Itís a call to wake up to the fact that my white privilege is that I can go for a jog and no one will think Iím committing a crime. Itís my white privilege that if I go to the store, clerks wonít follow me around or think Iím passing a counterfeit bill. To borrow from a meme, even a lot of white people are sick of the racism of other white people!

1. Don't think it would get that far.

Rich areas are protected.

3. That would scare the crap out of black America, too - because that would surely get a whole lot of

 

black folk shot on the spot...

But it would certainly put a lie to the argument that "you need to protest peacefully if you want us to support your cause."

5. The Irish did that during the Draft Riots in NYC

but they, like people today, for the most part only vaguely realized their real enemy lived uptown...they lynched a lot of people of color during those riots before they headed north to burn the mansions.
