11 Stunning Images Highlight the Double Standard of Reactions to Riots Like Baltimore - Mic
Or, as was expressed months ago, on these terms: "When, oh when, will these white sports fans stop destroying their own neighborhoods??"
While I don't condone the violence (it's counterproductive, IMO), I somehow find rioting over "injustice," (perceived or otherwise), to be far more "civilized" than rioting because, "**** it! We won/lost!"
I will reserve judgment in Baltimore until the complete investigation into Gray's death is made public. Innocent until proven guilty. However, IMO it doesn't look good for the officers. There is clear evidence of a pattern of abuse on part of LEOs in Baltimore, as others have been seriously injured in their custody.
As for Ferguson, I believe Darren Wilson shooting Michael Brown was justified.
But I don't see how anyone that read the DOJ report with a shred of openmindedness or objectivity wouldn't see there was, overall, a clear pattern of abusive practices on part of LE.
Ultimately, in both locations, the "injustices" were quite real.
I know fully you will excuse it by saying the black community is highly criminal and they should do something about that, but it is hard to not feel pissed off if the colour of your skin can get you stopped for no good reason and because of the justice system.. chances are you will get fined or arrested.
Yes, but it is by far happing more often against black people relative to their population size and that is the main issue. It is very clear to everyone but American conservatives, that there still is a serious racial problem in society, and in government. For example, pretty much all your official statistics to this day are divided up on race.. why? Why do Americans still talk about being African-American, Indian-American, German-American.. are you not American period?A lot of that has happened in the US and not just to black people, but to whites as well.
You seriously went there?Yet, for all that injustice, I never see thousands of whites rioting in the streets. Why is that? Are whites more civilized?
Listen, you dont seem to understand. Whites dont get stopped by the police because of the colour of their skin. That factor alone gives over time a lot of problems. Also Whites have rioted plenty of times.. just not for social injustice, because it does not exactly exist among white Americans.
Not once did he say it was out of context.
Not once has it been shown to not be true. He continues to say it was a smooth ride.
Now she has the problem of his statements he made to investigators and any differences with what he is now saying to protect his life.
That is if they are one in the same person.
There simply was no reason to think what he said then is a lie.
Now though is a different story. He has made it clear he is speaking out for fear of his life. This, which would be absurd for anyone to deny, taints what he is now saying.
So the only credible statements he made were those made when there was no threat to his life.
