    "We lost the round, but the fight ain’t over,” he said, Newsmax reported. “You won the first round, Mr. Prosecutor [Bob McCulloch], but don’t cut your gloves off, ‘cause the fight’s not over. Justice will come to Ferguson."
    Al Sharpton on Ferguson: 'We lost the round, but the fight ain't over' - Washington Times

    "Cutting your gloves off" is a boxing term (albeit not one used in that list of boxing metaphors).

    A black man assaulted a cop and Sharpton says the fight isn't over. Yeah that's a call to violence when you're talking to violent people.

    Ugh.

    Sharpton was addressing the Ferguson D.A., saying that the "fight" for justice for Brown (as he saw it) wasn't over. You're simply wrong here, dude.

    Yeah, but he'll never realize he's wrong.

    If Sharpton was addressing the DA then Sharpton would have used a private means of communication. He was talking to the black community using an address to the DA as a springboard. Cops are dead as a direct result of Sharpton's words so you're simply wrong here "dude".

    Sharpton is nothing less than a domestic terrorist and needs to be brought up on charges.

    So Sharpton saying the word "fight" is a call to violence. Okay.

    I posted several other quotes of people using the term "fight" in reference to their particular struggles. I assume those are calls to violence as well? Or only when Al Sharpton is talking?

    When in doubt, shut the **** up and ask for a lawyer. Don't be a dick. Don't resist. Don't threaten. Just be do what is rightful for you to do and ask for a lawyer.

    *Edit:

    Why is this a topic to argue over? It's a given right, it's common sense, and it's safe for everyone.

    No, common sense says you don't need to clam up unless you have something to hide.

    Cultural context, were you quoting people who are alive today and were speaking to a current American demographic?
