    Jade Bentil is an African (not American) who is doing research at Oxford (also not in America). Great.  She has an opinion as does everyone who has an a-hole.  She is not an American.

    But as a Prora, (and, I assume, an American) you are doing well in distracting from what the Congresspersons are tryin to do. i.e, pass a law that includes

    “a ban on chokeholds and a creation of a National Police Misconduct Registry. It also incentivizes states and localities to mandate racial bias training and teach officers about their “duty to intervene,” among other things.” https://twnews.us/us-news/congressional-democrats-criticized-for-wearing-kente-cloth-at-event-honoring-george-floyd

    “The legislation is the most expansive effort in recent years to reform policing policy across the nation at a federal level, but it is expected to face strong resistance from Republicans, police unions and local officials who don’t want Washington intervening in their policy making.”

    The Proras and the Profas and the RepugLIARS don’t want such legislation to pass, so they divert attention to the nonsense of wearing or not wearing colorful scarves.

    One protester against police brutality was killed and another injured by an African immigrant driving the wrong way on an exit ramp. https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/woman-dies-hit-car-highway-amid-protest-71615309

    SEATTLE — A person killed Saturday when a man who drove his car onto a closed Seattle freeway and into a crowd protesting police brutality was remembered Sunday as someone who was dedicated to the cause.

    The other person hit in the incident, meanwhile, remained in serious condition Sunday at a Seattle hospital.

    The deceased, Summer Taylor, 24, spent the last six weeks “tirelessly standing up for others while working full time and supporting everyone around them,” wrote Urban Animal on Instagram, the veterinarian clinic where Taylor worked in Portland, Oregon.

    A young White Leftist “non-binary person” just trying to make a difference was snuffed out by a black man driving a luxury car in the wrong direction.

    I don’t like laughing at other peoples misfortune, but you gotta admit this is funny in a dark way.

    On a related note, highways are dangerous and should never be used for anything besides driving.   (In the right direction please!)

    I admit that it would be quite dark indeed, were it funny.  But it didn’t strike me as funny.  Ironic at best, but not funny in any way that I could detect.

    Are you sure that you don’t like laughing at certain people’s misfortunes?

    A good laugh doesn’t hurt. What are some of your misfortunes?

    I had a hemorrhoid … twice (that is, two different individual hemorrhoids at two different times, that is one hemorrhoid each of the two times).

    And then, there was this time, I had the misfortune of reading something that someone posted about a horribly tragic event where some really nice person was killed, and it was supposed to be “darkly humorous”, but it was really just dark, and not humorous at all.

    Black humor is one of those things some people just automatically get and some people just automatically never will.  No big deal.

    All people get it but not all admit it; especially, those who get it in the neck. And in the subject case, it seems like divine justice. Non-binary and white. Like Trump, God is not politically correct.

    Maybe you just had to be there, when “A young White Leftist “non-binary person” just trying to make a difference was snuffed out by a black man driving a luxury car in the wrong direction.”

    No. I still don’t get the humorous part.  Unless…  Hmmmm…  What if I looked down on black men AND on young gay white leftists who are activists for the “rights” of such black men?  Like I really thought that both groups were real scummy people.  So THEN when I hear that a black man accidentally kills the liberal, I am like, oh man, LOL.

    So the trick to seeing the humor is to look at the whole thing from a profoundly biased social position. I get it.  If I were just straight out racist, and sexist, I would have gotten the “humor” straight off.
