Black Leaders in Portland Criticize Violent Protesters
 
Alex Nester - July 28, 2020 3:00 PM

While mainstream media outlets have tried to paint Portland's protests as "mostly peaceful," local black leaders have criticized demonstrators for destroying private and public property in the city—actions that they say distract from the call for racial justice.

Rachelle Dixon, vice chair of Portland's Multnomah County Democrats, said the destruction was "disturbing."

"To see people standing in Portland destroying property and not actually doing the work of advocating for black people was disturbing," Dixon told the New York Times. "I think they're a distraction from the everyday needs of people of color, especially black people. My life is not going to improve because you broke the glass at the Louis Vuitton store."

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

Should have been said two months ago. And more importantly, rioters should have been driven out of any actual protests. IOW, the protesters and their "leaders" embraced the rioters and are rightly associated with them.

They will adopt the Agent Provocateur narrative soon enough, watch and wait...
