By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Two Middle East countries have issues travel alerts about the United States. Add to that The Bahamas which also said that their citizens should exercise judgment and avoid protests and any interaction with police while in the United States.
The United Arab Emirates embassy in Washington DC has issued a warning that their citizens should stay away from big city protests. In addition, the government of Bahrain tweeted that their citizens should maintain distance from protests in the US.
There is no real threat to citizens in the United States - especially relative to the dangers of the Middle East. The United States is safe for Americans and for tourists.
The subtext of the warnings these countries are releasing is that the Black Lives Matter movement and their protests are likely to be violent and police are on edge and they may react which could lead to more deaths.
