What is the viability of the civil disobedience campaigns such as these garbage protests by the Young Lords in 1960s Harlem? Are there any successful more recent examples of such tactics, or have the police adapted to counter them?

I would say the floyd riots are probably the most recent event that springs to mind.

They certainly garner a response from the ruling class. I would argue that they are more responsible for pro-worker state policies (temporary as they may be) than any amount of reformist political activism is.

What did the Floyd riots actually achieve that political reform hasn't done or done better over the course of 100 years?

They're good on the local level.
They're not going to bring structural change, but will shake things up for a single city or subset of a State.

The BLM riots were actively encouraged by the corporate media and the establishment at large to distract from the real issue at the time: the mishandling of covid.

What are you even talking about? This thread is about civil disobedience, and the Floyd riots were a fine example of it. They got shit done. Civil disobedience works a hell of a lot better than peaceful protests and rocking the vote do.

It got nothing done. A tiny number of black criminals were shot by police. Now a tiny number of black criminals are shot by police. The whole thing was a circus to distract you from the corrupt government-corporate handling covid. Stop falling for it.

Its not about the number it's about the speed at which it happens but you are right though.

You mean the speed at which the corporate media published stories about it.

No. You realize there's statistical data analysis that has been done on this subject right? Black people are killed at a much higher rate than other races. This is some 2014-2015 argument shit.

This actually didn't come from pol it came from old leftypol back on 8chan if I remember correctly.

By what? Cops? Not in any way that would indicate systemic racism. Rather, cops like to kill poor people and a lot of blacks are poor.

Bro do you understand what I mean when I say "at a higher rate?" I don't mean they kill more black people. I mean they kill black people faster than white people.

Of course they do, but they sure as hell don't make those numbers public, nor, do I imagine, does each department give those numbers to other departments. That's why I said, "show me."
