REPOST: Anytime you hear someone criticizing black people for rioting, share this info with them.

FACT:
Prior to the 1960s, rioting (or race riots), consisted of whites burning down and destroying black communities simply because they didn’t want them there. Mostly in major northern, western and Midwestern cities, where the population of black citizens grew tremendously due to the great migration. Blacks fled from Jim Crow south to seek refuge and to find jobs and homes. The competition was fierce, thousands and thousands of blacks flooded the cities resulting in “white flight”.
White people were angry that blacks were taking over jobs and building their own communities. Even white soldiers that have been stationed away from home were furious when they came back to this “change”.
This is how race riots started. Whites were not too happy about desegregation in their cities. With subliminal attempts to keep their city segregated, blacks were not allowed in the “white” part of town. Black homes and communities were destroyed and burned down by angry white mobs and countless deaths occurred.

Kochać to nie znaczy być szczęśli­wym 24 godzi­ny na dobę. Cza­sami znaczy to także cier­pieć, na­wet mo­men­ta­mi bar­dzo ciężko. Wszys­tko to ma jed­nak głębo­ki sens – po­dob­nie jak poród ko­biety, który jest bo­les­ny, ale który równocześnie przy­nosi życie. Trze­ba bo­wiem pa­miętać, że cier­pienie niesie ze sobą war­tość o ty­le, o ile wie­rzy­my, że idea, z po­wodu której się męczy­my, jest ważniej­sza od nasze­go ak­tual­ne­go sa­mopoczu­cia. Ludzie często kochają się, przeżywają sil­ne na­miętności – to by­wa wspa­niałe, ale praw­dzi­wym wyz­wa­niem jest trwały związek, w którym dwo­je ludzi ma szansę spraw­dzić siłę swo­jej miłości.

I was walking through my apt towards the windows. As I looked out the window I noticed a bright object in the eastern sky. I said to my wife: ‘what is that?!“ It looked at first like a meteor burning up upon entering the atmosphere, i know this as i have seen that before, and I thought WOW the looks really close and got worried because it looked really close. It looked like it was on fire. By now my wife was there with me and she was in total disbelief, and kept asking what is that?. But then as we watched, I was expecting it to pass over us and continue towards the city, NYC, which is just west of my bldg across the east river, it made a 9o degree left turn, and continued on a steady path. No longer a meteor!? This made get my phone and start recording this. so I open the window to get a clearer view, and started recording. I recorded about 30 seconds, until the object went through some clouds and disappeared. We live in the flight path for landing airplanes at Laguardia airport. planes fly through all the time. from south to north. this object crossed this path from east to west and then turned from west to south east. This was the day after the snow storm, there was also a near full moon.
