    So only certain types of violence creates more violence.  Got it lol.
    Their platform is police practices in general that directly affect the black population.  They also rightly point out that racial biases play a large part in how they are treated in the criminal justice system and result in disproportional incarcerations and deaths by police.
    It is directly tied to efforts to help the black community.  Hard to bring a community out of poverty of we are throwing them in jail at alarming rates.
    As far as making it a "race thing" that is exact same rhetoric used in the 60's.  Did you know thay after MLK's "I Have a Dream" speech a Gallup poll found only 33% of Americans had a favorable view of MLK?  They called him a race baiter, opportunist, racist profiteer, rabble rouser, etc who was destroying cities with demonstrations and putting police, white people, and black people in danger with divisive rhetoric.  Most said he was making race tensions worse and encouraging a race war.  Any of this sound familiar yet?
    That is why political cartoons like this were popular in the 60's

    Does police violence count in that equation?

    BTW blaming others for being upset about police misconduct that has been going on for decades was in poor form at the press conference.  But they were grieving so I will give them a pass.

    This is truly terrible, but has little to do with the Black Lives Matters platform, and as far as we know has little to no connection to the movement.
    It is always terrible when something like this happens.  I hate it for his family and friends.
    At the same time over a 1,000 people are killed by police every year.  100s of which are unarmed.  Often because of subconcious racial biases that lead to perceived threats based on stereotypes of certain races, and often for minor crimes that escalate to unnecessary violence.
    Nobody should use this to belittle, marginalize, or dismiss the grievances of the Black Lives Matters movement as a whole.  Especially since to my knowledge this guy may not have even affiliated with them (speaking of stereotypes I assume people have made that connection simply because he is a black person), or even agreed with their platform.

    Charlotte Bar and Restaurant recommendations?
    So my wife and I are closing on a second place in Uptown Charlotte near the stadium on Wednesday.  Wondering what are some places that have good food or some good nightlife in Uptown.  We are not big seafood fans, but like everything else.
    Any recommendations?

    We need him to not suck.  We are going to be okay.  One WR had a bad game last night.  Deal with it.  We can win with the guys we have, but we have to tighten up and get focused.
    Not saying we shouldn't be concerned, but I am saying some of you should stop panicking.

    Kinda like I said last night.  Some are upset that we signed an average WR instead of some average WR.
    We have signed and drafted several WRs the last couple of years.  We arent ignoring the WR position.

    I swear.  You sound like a guy that would buy a Ferrari, then literally never drive it because you are scared you might wreck it

    FAs are usually FAs for a reason too.  Just saying.  Calvin Johnsons usually arent sitting out there with a manageable price tag

    Oh I agree with that.  Just saying we arent using all of our weapons that we do have in the redzone because it is preseason so we are protecting Cam and keeping most plays under wraps

    Well, that is why we have signed and drafted several WRs over last couple of years.  None of those guys you posted earlier are really difference makers or even #2 WRs.
    You act like Gettleman has ignored the position.  He hasn't.  
    You just seem upset we signed one average receiver instead of another average receiver
