    Get in good physical shape. Arm yourself. Get a permit to carry. Be ok with having to go to jail for defending yourself

    Your advice is good except for this part IMO. Also gun permits are not readily available in certain states and cities (like mine), and not readily available to people with hue.

    I do not feel you should be ok with going to jail defending yourself. Understand me. Meaning: OF COURSE i'm a big proponent on defending yourself, my issue here is don't put yourself in harms way especially not over these fools. This is the same **** that's been going for 500+ years and we still falling for it. Let these ignorant racist fools fight over their symbolism. If they gather, LET THEM GATHER. Do not engage them. There are idiots, they will alway be idiots. Everything doesn't have to be a counter protest.

    So to answer chuck's question how should we cope or deal with this, I say the only threat is the alt right to the alt right. There is no threat to us we don't have to cope with anything. AS LONG AS THEY DON'T STEP OVER THE LINE. When they do we deal until then let these a-holes have their sissy hissy fit, and leave. If anything else transpires, like they want to taste real kool aid then give it to them.

    I appreciate your comment and strength brother Senegal.

    Agreed. I could care less they are whining about confederate loser statues or whatever. My point was that depending what cops come to investigate you may end up doing some jail time. I once was at work and was attacked by this white guy. I did a number on him and he had to go to the hospital. The cops tried to arrest me even though i was clearly in work attire and my staff was telling the cops what happened.

    Yes, I do see that it is a growing threat and it's frustrating. Especially when I remember hearing pres. Trump make comments that fit this very definition, it's wrong, and a contradiction. He holding office to supposedly protect human rights, yet he speaks in acceptance of 'needed violence' and with facism tones. I think one way to deal with this threat is to be always mindful of this age old system and too, even if he is ousted, as rumored, he will have done his intended job to start this movement! I think we need to be defensive against this evil.

    We have to stop turning the other cheek. Stop thinking God is going to rescue us. We have got to ban together. It's a situation now that we have stand united in order to get the message across to these extremist and racism. As one user said, "be ready and willing to pay the sacrifice."
