honestly I had not any doubt that this was their precise and straight to the point feel and thought about the situation. I am glad that they voiced it.

Hopefully, they all stand for peaceful protests and oppose to rioters who are confounding or adding to the COVID-19 issues. Even the the national demonstrations are adding to an already volatile situation.

In times like these, a statement like theirs is more than necessary. Thank you, Rolling Stones!

Music Industry Calling for a 'Blackout' in Response to George Floyd's Death

The music industry is calling for a "Blackout Tuesday" in response to the death of George Floyd.

On Friday (May 29), less than a week after Floyd was suffocated by a Minneapolis police officer during an arrest, numerous music companies and artists began spreading a message on social media calling for “a day to disconnect from work and reconnect with our community" and “an urgent step of action to provoke accountability and change.”

"As gatekeepers of the culture, it's our responsibility to not only come together to celebrate the wins, but also hold each other up during loss," reads the statement, which is being circulated under the hashtag #TheShowMustBePaused.

Why is there a curfew for rioters when we all are supposed to be in lockdown unless necessary to go out ? And then when out shopping, apply safety measures such as social distancing and masking?


I feel great empathy and sympathy for the business owners who have lost their lively hood due to destruction caused by personal or political gains.

I would advise the thugs to stay home tonight. We will save our country. I just hope COVID-19 did not seep into these demonstrations or riots.

Those are welcome messages from the Rolling Stones and Mick. Darryl rarely tweets anything but he has tonight.
Afraid I don’t know how to copy in full from Twitter, but this is what he said:

I am saddened
I am angered
I will remember those taken
I will not forget these injustices
I will be respected
I will be respectful
I will be constructive
I will not self destruct
I will be lawful
I will not comply with lawlessness
I will not be afraid in my own

Happy and relieved to see them speak out about this. I notice they have been wishing Charlie a happy birthday a day early, presumably so that they can observe Blackout Tuesday.

Writing these protests off as purely political, and your use of the word 'thugs' tells me all I need to know.

When one attacks a business and steals goods then it is not political it is a crime

We owe a lot more than that to future generations, and I fear we are failing them greatly. And I am greatly divided over the whole "non-violence" thing. It hasn't really worked, has it? The peaceful just get steamrollered by those willing to take advantage of peoples' good nature. I will say in most cases the police have been using a great deal of discretion, to their credit. Its a continuation of a sad month.

If this sounds too political, or too real, please remove it. It doesn't change anything whether this post remains or not, and that's the real point. Nothing changes.

Many can't see the forest for the trees. In Chicago this past weekend 92 people were shot and 27 of them were killed.

It's true but I might get in trouble for posting the link. Just do the search.

Erad is right. Take a look at the history and conditions that gave rise to all of this. And I am talking about the protests. A long, sordid and disgusting history down to and including the present day. The real thugs are the ones in power. They are the ones that have perpetrated this.

Sympathies are hard to find with this sort of random madness, apart from for the truly innocent bystanders that may have been shot. For the love of God I don’t get the USs love of guns. If they ask themselves why it’s in their constitution, they surely could justify the repeal of that clause and ban them!? But no, they love their guns. Stupidity.

Burning down churches, destroying commercial infrastructure, shooting police officers (St. Louis last night) does not resolve any issue. Elections are held to determine those in power.
