    Same with me. I admit I am immensely concerned about the combination of unarmed and hands-up, but I await further information.

    The cultural problem involving the police and its relationship with a majority African American community is nevertheless important to consider. If it was true that many residents do not feel as if the police in their neighborhoods make their purportedly rare visits to protect them and foster an appreciation for their service (including toward youth), then that is something that is warranting discussion and consideration. I think a relatively healthy and positive relationship with police is a good thing for communities. If a large segment of the community does not feel that way about their law enforcement, then that is something they should act on.

    Perhaps that culture of change would be best considered as a two way street.

    Very few clapped.
    And I didn't see any of the actual audience clap, but did see a group of protestors clapping though.
    So maybe that is all who clapped, protestors.

    No. The vast majority of protesting is specifically about the shooting of Brown and their belief in a false narrative.
    Or are not hearing their chants?

    There is a big demonstration coming for the 10 through the 13.
    The motivation is still the false narrative in the shooting of Brown.

    I mean having a dissenting opinion doesn't make you a racist. But when your chants are racist, it kind of makes you look like one.

    These idiot protestors were chanting that they wanted Officer Wilson dead. They are in the wrong from the get.

    Maybe so. That doesn't make racism OK.

    No one on this side of the fence said the protestors racism and prejudice was okay.

    What you have failed to show though, is that what you quoted was racism, let alone simple prejudiced.

    Excon, when I say they are protesting a community issue I mean just that. They are projecting their isolation and mistrust of the police instead of strictly adhering to the incident in question. In many ways, Wilson becomes an object in which the black community exercises its own problems with police. This likewise flows in the other direction. Whites have likewise projected their feelings of black relations with police to support Wilson, despite uncertain evidence of the Brown-Wilson encounter.
