Hey Josh LeBlanc-Shulman looking forward to continuing our conversations here - Welcome to beBee. This is an incredibly useful buzz. Sometimes we do need to work towards agreement and I think you've nailed the right strategy: "Acknowledge your humanity. Acknowledge their humanity. Acknowledge the emotions involved. Acknowledge the facts involved. Find a solution."

@Josh Leblanc-Shulman you are on point. Steven Covey describes this process as "Seeking first to understand, then be understood" Everyone has their emotional triggers. To assume yours are the only ones that matters usually makes for some cold coffee conversations. Great post.

Another unarmed black man loses his life. The protests that have ensued aren't so much about Keith Lamont Scott's death, as they are about the life that preceded it, and the lives that succeed it. Notice that the Black Lives Matter movement...

BLM is unfortunztely the same lie that was sold in Ukraine under the brand name Maidan - as it is funded from the same source (Soros) and founded upon the same agenda ~ expect same and similar results. I.E. soon artillary will be shelling enclaves in the names of Peace, Unity, Patriotism. Justice is a blind whore that is quick and ready for a roll for any that have the cash to lift her gown.
