    Ive always regarded the “Ferguson effect” as a made up conservative theory and dont give it that much weight.

    As far as Portland, their “protesters” were mostly white yuppies who cared more about battling the police and proud boys and than helping out the smidgin of a black community they have there.

    I do agree all of the efforts these grassroots groups were making have lost steam on social media until the next viral police murder :francis:. I can write more but im busy atm.

    Ill just say look for real black organizations with a track record and better leadership for help in the community. Any org that cares more about scraping with the police, allowing other groups to drown out the community, going viral, hollywood and virtue signaling are red flags.

    I’ve notice many of the groups like the notion of going viral or doing clap backs like it’s 8 mile and that’s it. No substance.

    The fact their trying to tie "Black Love" to Blueanon's conspiracy theories about "Our Democracy is under attack", gives away the intended audience for this is not black folks. It's for white progessives.

    @poiter is the OP of this thread. So I thought you were talking as if he's still active on this forum.

    No, it looks like a mod merged this from another thread. They just merged it into this larger thread.

    Sounds about right. I saw a commercial the other day for a new NBC sitcom called "Grand Crew" & it just seems like it's trying be like "Friends" with a majority black cast.

    I think this is why all 50 Cent's produced TV shows do well because you can tell his shows are legitimately appealing to a black audience.
