Nah, they just moved to Milwaukee to riot in support of an honor student tragically cut down in both the prime of life and felony possession.

Yes. BLM is protesting the killing of a black man by burning businesses in predominantly black neighborhoods within the jurisdiction of a black sheriff. Because white racism. :roll:

That's their modus operandi. Black man is shot to death by a police officer? Don't bother them with the facts (like criminal record, race of officer, what actually happened at the scene), go incite a riot and get a crowd to loot the local beauty supply store.

In this neighborhood, I'd guess the owner of that beauty supply store is black. So much for "get whitey".

Of course, when that beauty supply store owner collects on their insurance and finds out their insurance premium has doubled, it will be because the insurance company is "racist."

Possibly, but probably not. I think you will find that most minority small business owners don't think too differently than the non-minority ones. Those who are responsible enough to run their own business mostly don't have time for that crap.

All that is certainly true. The business owners took a hit, but the sister of the deceased has called for riots in the bedroom communitiees,. Yeah, I can see that happening. (/snark)

But, the sister did start a new rallying cry. We Need Our Weaves. Yeah, seriously, she went there, after they looted a beauty supply store.
