Some toilets have a sink attached to the top, so that you can re-use the water in the next flush. Millions of liters of water are saved this way!

  1. This is not what the tittle says at all. You litterally show us 1 instance, from 1 medium from 1967…

    You can do better than this op

  2. In response to your title, it depends on the mode of activism and what is being asked for, OP.

    You can’t compare something as essential as the black rights movement to some bored drama students pouring soup on historic paintings. Some “activism” IS stupid

  3. MLK acknowledged there were some riots and outright condemned them. It took away a massive talking point and distraction of his enemies.

    Today people act like they don’t happen at all and saying otherwise is misinformation. Just acknowledge they happen and condemn them and we can take away the talking point.

  4. Because they make a lot of money by stirring the pot and helping no one. Societal change doesn’t guarantee profits.

  5. This is especially heinous considering the well-documented instances of police brutalising civil rights protestors just for marching in public. Spraying them with fire hoses, using tear gas and physical violence…. But one side of that fight was Black, so i guess *they’re* the aggressors… /s
