The Pledge | 8th February 2018 - YouTube
arguments against violence don't hold up in a perverse violent opressive environment. (see hedges, cornel west, Malcom X, etc) especially if your elite "fellows" sell you down the river (barack Obama eric holder and co). Or see Vietnam, Buddhists burned themselves (self-immolation) up because of the injustice and their beliefs. Or Bobby Sands et al. Indefinite hunger strikes. Or Guantanamo/AbuGhraib if I am not mistaken, people there went on hunger strike. //&! - Suffragette //&! the women who chose to sit in protest on the bus in the white section, and the what followed blacks entering white establishments. a knowingly intentional provocation not answered by law and order but by public violence. //&! or the 2011 uk youth riots - debatable, but a grain of salt, violence answered w violence in this case looting ... what else? a bank? which is an impossibility. or looting your neighborhood block of flat Grenfell? // especially institutionalized structural oppression regime against minorities. or institutional disadvantaged.

Cam Newton's sexism controversy is the perfect parable for our time | Sport | The Guardian
How is this story – a workplace matter that really should’ve been resolved privately – even a thing, you ask? Because conflict, in black and white, still makes the most compelling spectacle. Sports have promoted them so well over the years that, well, it was just a matter of time before the less entertaining areas of life got in the game. And so people like CNBC’s Jim Cramer further divided stocks and bonds into winners and losers. Politics are less about issues than optics, as much for the newsmakers as the networks vying to see how many pundits they can cram onto their pre- and post-game show desks. Outrage culture is all the rage, and so the news never rests. No story, however false the premise or equivalency, is too small. This story, suddenly the week’s biggest NFL headline, is proof.
