Human Nature: The 2020 Race Riots Brings Out Worst And Best In us (Videos)

Written by Wes Walker on May 31, 2020

Like Charles Dickens’s famous opening line, we are seeing both ‘the best of times and worst of times’. We are seeing the entire scope of human nature flicker across our screens in real time. This crisis has only magnified both of those extremes.

In the ‘worst of things’ column, we’ve got the way we mistreat each other, or property — often for no greater reason than to destroy something that belongs to somebody else.

We’re not sure WHAT the hell was happening with the guy who brought a bow to a riot.

As if there weren’t already enough distrust of law enforcement, we’ve got cops firing at people standing on their own damned front porch. (Rubber bullets, we expect. But these days, all bets are off.)

And is this any better? Joe Biden’s team is helping front bail to the rioters in Minneapolis. Because we definitely need the violent agitators back on the street as soon as possible before this all blows over.

At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.

Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”

But the campaign declined to answer questions on whether the donations were coordinated within the campaign, underscoring the politically thorny nature of the sometimes violent protests. —Reuters

Their targets made no sense at all.

A center for native youth.

A college football hall of fame…

But it is by no means ALL bad news.

One woman obviously still actually cares about what happened to George Floyd, and has the guts to put a couple of white anarchists inflaming tensions and exploiting this outrage in their place.

With ten thousand more like this brave woman, we might get the country back on the rails.

We have the quick response of a good guy with a gun when the rioters found a firearm in the back of a squad car.

We love that one.

We’ve got neighborhoods of big-hearted volunteers to clean up the mess when the rioters melt back into the darkness…

That’ll restore you faith in humanity. And if THAT won’t… maybe THIS will:
