What's everyone's thoughts on this taking part in Edinburgh and Glasgow? Personally I think it's right to speak out but now isn't the time.

Holyrood photos show social distancing in the park. Glasgow Green looks the opposite. 
 

Where is your thread about the beach goers etc?

As long as its peaceful I've no problem with it.

Looking at what's happening in America is crazy.

Never understood destroying where you live 🤷‍♂️

Sad thing is there are people out stealing stuff and don't really care about the message that is being put across

Happens regardless of the cause and unfortunately gives the bigots a chance to put the boot in to those legitimately seeking change.

Most of those attending will be the same student types and lefties that were shouting loudest for stricter lockdown and bleating about lockdown breaches.

Fecking hypocrites

BLM is cool with celebs so they are just jumping on the bandwagon.

Lost for words. 10 weeks in lockdown wasted. Hope there’s not a second wave / spike and a further lockdown. The country can’t handle that but hey as long as the wee protestors got to exercise their democratic rights we can handle a few more corona deaths wait a minute...... They selfish!

Edinburgh will be a tad quieter today as the attention seeking arseholes converge on Holyrood Park. 👍

Oft like your honesty but your about to be called a racist! It’s true where were these protest when Sheku Bayou died! oh aye that wasn’t trendy with celebrity supporters. 
 

The same folk at these protest will be celebrating St Patrick’s day and ignore St Andrews day. It’s all about what the cool kids are doing.

Who are the "cool kids" and how do you identify them across the globe ?

I understand it in America. That's where the problem is. 

 

But a bunch of over privileged British white snowflake types jumping on the bandwagon over here, trying to prove how not racist they are by smashing the place up can all get in the sea. 👉🌊 A bunch of muppets.

Yup, I’ll find out all about it later from the wife, when she tells me all about their ‘I was there’ Facebook posts.

As if you know a single one of them. 

Some weird outrage in the UK at a statue being torn down when the UK media used to love coverage of Soviet satellites tearing down statues of oppression or Iraqis demolishing statues of Sadam. I don't recall much protest in the UK then. 

 

"over privileged British white snowflake types" : they'll be all over the MSM tomorrow defending their pillars of the community. The UK does hypocrisy SO well , you'd think slavery never happened or that "over privileged British white" made millions and achieved "respectability" from so much human misery.

To be fair I wouldn't know racism if it slapped me in the face either but I don't go to protests during a global pandemic and pretend to care about it.

Not sure how protesting in Scotland or any other country for that matter would have any affect on the death of a black man in America. What did they actually achieve today?

Dis Mofo?

Seen and enjoyed  lots of his films from Some Girls Gotta Have It to BlacKKlansman. Lost a lot of respect for him when I got behind him in a check in queue at an airport (LA to London or reverse can't remember) and he treated the woman on the desk like shit. No please or thank you and not even any acknowledgement that she existed. In fact much as I imagine a particularly obnoxious slave owner would treat his slave.

Still probably a victim of racism so that's OK.
