Just meant to keep the discussions going...
Not the be all or end all of means/ways/etc. to resolve our peoples issues/problems, etc.
So what was or is your issue or problem with what the elder brother claimed or said, brother K?
This intriguing mind would like your answer to that question as well....
Most people probably know by now that I'm not with having an interracial couple leading any video honoring powerful Black people no matter who is in it, especially if it has to have a White male/Black female couple to head it off...they appeared to be a couple. A Black couple would have been much more appropriate for a video like that. That's almost like a Black church still posting the image of a white Jesus, and still trying to tell you it doesn't matter. Back in the day, leaders like Malcolm X and members of other Black organizations were even hesitant about having images of Black male/White female couples speaking on our behalf, especially at the beginning of a message or video, even if it was a video honoring Black people. So this would be a smack in the face to them, and it should be to any Black male since they're trying to turn back the clock on us, and still lynching our high school boys for dating their White girls, and even their grown White women. It's obvious that were not there yet.
There's a reason you will seldom hear of a White male on the web showing any images or promoting any movie with a Black male with a White woman, unless it's porn, and it took a long time for them to even reach that point...that's if they really did. Now can you imagine a White male making or supporting a film with a White girl speaking for White power, and sleeping with a Black male, then dump her White boyfriend for him after she gets caught. It ain't going to happen. The Black race can't be much more of a laughing stock than they're becoming today.
So when I saw that the video had to have a White male with a Black female, it psychologically nullified everything it stood for. Even if it had also included a Black male with a White female, it still wouldn't have done anything positive for the video, unless it was promoting IR couples. But to just show a White guy with a Black girl, and expecting it not to make a difference is like playing head games. It doesn't show Black lives really matter to much after all in a sense, not from a Black males perspective. Some may say this is self explanatory, but that's the way I see it.
I don't go over everything as you do, and I appreciate it when anybody does make such an effort...
So, on point/on time/etc., but I also don't pretend to be right, al of the time..
Back to reality 101:

I'm not seeking to coopt your thread,-- nor should you be trying to upstage me-- too...
But: I also reject the white police findings-- which at this point are just attempts at better pr-- and doesn't change my mind about police misconduct--( in this case)--as well...
