Do you blame the entirety of the Police Force when one of them kills someone?

I do not. Police do not have a manifesto that condones violence.

@coldjoint,
I'm starting to realize that the rocket fuel of BLM is Black Power , which is a concept conceived by Stokely Carmichael. It's used to instigate radical black people to turn against "White" America, creating a self-governed black community within America, just like what Huey Newton suggested when he was still the leader of the Black Panther Party. In other words, there will be two Americas-one is white and another one is black. And the black one is allowed to embrace Islam thinking while castigating Christianity and capitalism, just like what Nation of Islam did.

Simply put, it's just a combination of the Black Panther Party and Nation of Islam.

I'm talking about some radical blacks , not the whole black society collectively.

That said, white people still can't deny the existence of mass incarceration, school segregation and concentrated poverty facing most black paupers.

@McGentrix,
Problem is, some radicals just want to use BLM to cause ructions. They don't care about black people's rights; instead, they are dedicated to promoting their own ideology. They also don't blench at violence, as opposed to Martin Luther King's creed of non-violence

@oralloy,
Some black people also abhor black radicalism, just like conventional conservatives also express distaste for reactionary nationalism or even the New Right.

Hi, earthlings, I come in peace. 我为和平而来. Please drop the gun. We are all sisters and brothers. We need to work together to heal the word in the words of Michael Jackson in one of his songs.

Black and non-black people all belong to the same family called earth. It's time to abjure violence and hug each other for the common good. Most importantly, people really need stability now since nations and people's jobs have been convulsed by Covid-19. Thus, it's time to hold hands instead of calling for different races to glunch at each other.

United, America, Europe and China defeated Nazi and Japan. United, America saw off the onslaught of more terrorist attacks launched by Muslim militants. United, America and China helped other nations weather the financial crisis that roiled world's financial markets back to 2008, during which Obama was the most influential policy-maker.

It's time to embrace reconciliation again unless you want to be a fascist.

The historic collapse of the American gross domestic product has just been announced - shortly afterwards Trump is pondering on Twitter whether the elections in November should be postponed.

@McGentrix,
Are you seriously advocating for a third Presidential term, even though it's against the law?

@neptuneblue,
I know it already feels like a lifetime but - dog forbid - if he were to win in November, that would be a 2nd term which expires in 2024. We'll all be eating rats by then.

Herman Cain, 74 dies from Covid-19

has died from coronavirus, according to an obituary sent from his verified Twitter account
and Newsmax, where he was launching a television show.

Cain, 74, was hospitalized earlier this month, and his Twitter account said earlier this week
he was being treated with oxygen in his lungs. It is unknown where he contracted the virus...

Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University v. Trump

On July 11, 2017, the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, as well as various political writers and professors, filed this suit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The plaintiffs sued President Donald J. Trump, White House Press Secretary Sean M. Spicer, and other agents of the executive branch through a Bivens claim alleging First Amendment violations. The plaintiffs argued that President Trump’s Twitter account was a public forum and alleged that by blocking Twitter users who had criticized President Trump or his policies, the defendants had unconstitutionally limited those users’ right to free speech. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel and the ACLU, sought declaratory and injunctive relief as well as attorneys’ fees and costs. The case was assigned to Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald.

On October 13, 2017, the defendants moved for summary judgment, arguing that the district court lacked jurisdiction over the plaintiffs’ claims, that the plaintiffs could not establish a state action, and that blocking the individual plaintiffs did violate the public forum doctrine.

On November 3, 2017, the plaintiffs responded with a cross-motion for summary judgment, arguing that the @realDonaldTrump account is a designated public forum and that blocking the individual plaintiffs was unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination.

On May 23, 2018, the Court granted in part and denied in part both motions for summary judgment. Judge Buchwald concluded that the court did have jurisdiction over this matter but found that the plaintiffs lacked standing to sue Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Hope Hicks. Thus, the two were dismissed as defendants. Next, the Court found that the type of speech the plaintiffs sought to engage in was protected by the First Amendment and that the @realDonaldTrump account was susceptible to analysis under the public forum doctrine. Lastly, Judge Buchwald concluded that the viewpoint-based exclusion, or blocking, of a Twitter user from the account was proscribed by the First Amendment and could not be justified by the President’s personal interests. 302 F. Supp. 3d 541.


On June 4, 2018, the defendants appealed this decision to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. A panel of Circuit Judges Barrington D. Parker, Peter W. Hall, and Christoper F. Droney upheld the district court's ruling in a July 9, 2019 opinion. They found that the President's Twitter account was not a private platform and produced government speech as part of a public forum. Under this classification, discrimination based on viewpoint was not permissible, and blocking the Twitter users amounted to viewpoint discrimination. The panel added that "workarounds" such as logging out of Twitter to see the President's tweets without the ability to comment placed an unfair burden on expression, too. As such, the President was no longer allowed to block Twitter users from the @RealDonaldTrump account. 928 F.3d 226.

The defendants applied for a rehearing en banc after this opinion was filed, but Judge Parker denied their motion on March 23, 2020, reiterating the positions held in the previous opinion. Circuit Judges Michael Park and Richard Sullivan dissented in order denying the motion, questioning the broadening of the scope of public forum doctrine to include twitter accounts. They also contested the decision that a government official using Twitter amounted to government speech. 953 F.3d 216.

The plaintiffs filed a motion on April 9, 2020 asking Judge Buchwald to set a deadline for a motion to collect attorney fees for 30 days after appeals expire. Judge Buchwald granted the motion the following day. No motion has been filed as of June 23, 2020.

Trump uses his twitter account to announce policy and other such things the same as other presidents announced such things in the Rose Garden or the Oval Office.
