How do you counter-protest those calling for less police brutality, less deaths of black people to them?
Get a bunch of white guys to wear hoodies saying "I can breathe", apparently. Seriously, what the fuck? How do they think that makes any kind of point bar privilege?

Washington Man Wrongfully Arrested for Check Fraud at Chase Bank - ABC News
Black guytries to cash a (large) cheque at a bank. Bank refuses, has him arrested for cheque fraud. They fairly quickly work out they're wrong, ring up cops to say its a mistake. Cop they call is out, so the guy spends four days in jail. During which his car (left in the bank's park) is impounded then auctioned. Lack of car leads to him losing his job. One wonders at the likelihood of that happening to someone who wasn't black.
