    Black Lives Matters has decided to use this venue as their soap box.

    I used to love going downtown with my parents to see the Fredrick's (Macy's) star and Westlake tree light up. We did dinner and then the ceremony to start Christmas. Unfortunately I will not be taking my 4 year old down to see it...and it is not like I am overreacting. I have worked in this area of town for 10 years and I am not scared of the city. Last year the cops pushed them out of the area and they "fought back" which brought tear gas and shattered windows to the festivities.
    On this board it is not popular to say but I am a liberal. I understand there is police brutality and abuse however I don't understand the outrage of BLM toward cops when 91% of African American murders are by other black males. This kind of activism only alienates you and your cause. Makes me sad and angry. Not kicking the football is the least of Charlie Brown's problems. Homeboy is going to get the World Star treatment when he shows up with Snoopy. http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle...-protest-holiday-event-at-westlake-on-friday/

    They're ignorant and don't want to hear the truth. It's all the white man's fault somehow anyway.

    Redmond tree lighting is nice... Suburb living might be boring, but boring is good sometimes.

    Good. I am glad "normal" people are having stuff ruined and are getting sick of it. Maybe the tide will start to shift.

    More hickory jesus and wood shampoos in the future. :woot:

    Not all blacks, just the BLM agitators and their ilk. A lot of middle class black folks are getting sick of their shit as well.
