The principal lacked wisdom to know what’s appropriate. It’s unwise to say All lives matter (+ cops + all humans matter) in the midst of the Black Lives matter moment.
People need to acknowledge that Black lives have been disregarded & disrespected. When they get their due, we can move onto “All lives matter”.

SC1 I listed a few things that I actually participate to try to help equality, albeit small.

What specifically do you do besides try to shit on people on FB?

I wouldn’t want her to be my kid’s principal. We need people in power who get it. If you don’t get it, you shouldn’t be in power. That’s it. “Black lives matter” is making steps toward becoming more of an understood fact and I believe part of that movement means that people who can’t get with it are left behind and not given leadership roles. The moment is too important. Hopefully they’ll educate themselves and understand later but, in the meantime, their power needs to be relinquished. It’s the only way we get the substantial change that our society needs.

Honestly, MLK said it way batter than I could say it myself in his letter from a Birmingham jail. I’ll also link it below for anyone who wants to read the entire letter.

“First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.”

This is textbook jacobinism. Everyone who doesn’t spew the party line is branded an enemy and castigated. Unbelievable that this is happening in this country.

OW1 as LA Galaxy it is also a financially prudent move to fire him.
That said, if he apologizes let him back on, but on probation that if any such activity is seen he will be fired. I don't know why we go for an extreme punishment right away.

This is why liberals lose. They take something that the country supports, and figures out how to divide the supporters amongst themselves.

To everyone in this thread: real mob rule is lynching, Jim Crow, and murdering Black men like animals.

This is important enough to merit some actions we all might not agree with. I might not have gone about this in the same way (I'm a SWM) but agree it's an emergency, and it's not my place to judge what's necessary. Men like me have made too many decisions for others.

All Lives Matter is semantic BS. It’s just an excuse for people to keep being complacent. There’s no “mob mentality.” It isn’t a political issue. It’s a human rights issue.

Re-education reaches America. These BLM fanatics have this "believe what I believe, speak what I speak" mentality or you will be branded a racist.
