And if you think nothing about the recent problems, not just in bmore, have been racially charged, then you miss that point too.
I know it started out as peaceful protests. But how can you expect to get anything done if everything regresses back into senseless rioting? Saying it's all because of race then going and rioting about it is making the race look even worse in the eyes in the public.
If they went out and PEACEFULLY protested instead of destroying public property then maybe some change would happen.
You can't pull the race card when something happens to you then not expect the same when you go out rioting. It's a sick double standard that America should be cleansed of in order to move us in a more progressive direction.
We shouldn't be divided by blacks, whites, Latinos etc in the 21st century. We should've realized that people are people by now and learned to have all gotten along.
