    White folks do not suffer systemic privilege, so there was no threat to them when OJ was acquitted. When one is a minority, injustice serves as a very real threat to each an every member of the minority.

    No, but I remember the black people cheering when he was acquitted. I guess it's a reason to celebrate when a black man gets away with killing his ex-wife and an innocent young man?

    Are you kidding me? The only threat to other minorities posed in this incident was CAUSED by the rioters, Michael Brown (remember who HIS victim was), and NOT caused by the system. Michael Brown committed strong armed robbery. And the people who think he is innocent destroyed business after business. Caused thousands, if not millions, of dollars of damage.

    Justice served a threat too them too apparently.

    Why can't you understand basic sociological fact?

    An instance of perceived injustice is of no threat to whites collectively, it is to blacks - because of the existence of systemic privilege.

    And it's not "the people who think he's innocent". It's hooligans and gangs.

    On the first point, I've never, every tried to claim that Michael Brown was White. What I have claimed is that the media continued to post the same picture of him as a child when it wasn't an adolescent who committed the crime (strong arm robbery or assault on a police officer just to name two) or was the victim of a police shooting. Image is everything and what the media tried to do was paint a picture of a child being killed by the police.

    As for the rest, you post your way and I'll post mine. If you don't like it, you have every right not to read it or comment about it.

    As to your charge of racism within my writing, only folks who are looking for it will find what's not there. Trust me, when I make a post that is racially divisive, everyone who knows me on this board will know about it!

    Re: Reports: Ferguson grand jury has made decision

    There was a lot of talk about "outsiders" coming to Ferguson to cause problems and riot. There was also talk about cops out of uniform agitating the protestors and egging them on. With all the threats of violence and rioting after a verdict is announced it seems very strange that they would release the verdict at night...making it difficult to identify anyone who riot or commit violence. Which kind of leads me to believe the cops might have something to do the rioting last night.



    Anyway, I quit following the story a few months ago. The only question I really have is why do some in the media keep saying that this grand jury was "different" than other grand juries....and even after they explain the difference....I still don't see it.

    What injustice?


    The wrong horse was backed, The "gentle giant" was a thug, charged the cop. got shot. That should have been the end of it. Instead black owned stores, and EVEN THE ONE THE DUDE ROBBED" got looted and burned.
