What began as a conversation about targeted communities dealing with violence morphed into some random person trying to interject their completely irrelevant perspective on how communities should respond as meekly as possible and then I'm in the wrong because I reject that premise as it not only puts us in even more danger, but also does nothing to deal with said violence.
Dr. MLK Jr. was on the money when he said white 'moderates' were the biggest obstacle to progress.

Let me be clear.
Preaching non-violence to communities that are under constant threat of racist, bigoted and hateful violence is siding with bigots. You are protecting people that are causing harm.
If this thought clashes with your personal ethics, then your personal ethics allow bigots to continue to harm people with no consequence.
You are a part of the problem.

Let me quickly explain why the Christchurch mosque shooting affects many of us, not just Muslim communities. If the shooter's manifesto and social media feed are accurate, he was inspired by a right wing ideological infrastructure that thrives, recruits and radicalizes online 1/
Black and Brown people should definitely arm themselves.
Platforms are normalizing rhetoric that enables hateful violence and then a majority of media channels are simply refusing to look at the obvious connections between mass shootings.
Non-violence isn't an option when your opponent doesn't have a conscience.
