There are people there who don't care about mike brown. And are using this as an opportunity for their own agenda. Just read the tweets from the people on the ground. Mostly out of towners, anarchists & the small number of people who are doing it just because.

A member of the community who had been positively protesting thought a curfew could do the same thing; weed those people out

I am against looting. Even if the store owner is able to write the theft off.....store owners' may decide to move from/not open stores in certain neighborhoods to avoid future problems.......then you end up with neighborhoods where it's easier to buy a gun than a tomato.

I don't condone it, but I don't care about it. I certainly am not going to stand in front of a store and use my body as a shield to prevent people from breaking and taking sheit. Awfully sweet of them, but wouldn't be me.

Me too deva

"My black son wears his pants sagging, tattoos on his arms, hat to the side, but that's still my baby"


Buttt then I kept getting the sense that he was implying some "we need to do better" stuff on the cool..without actually saying it. Or am I trippin?

I felt a little of that as well....but I think/hope he was saying we can do better via unity/sticking together/making a difference and not necessarily "pick up your pants and things will be better" type of difference

THIS is why I am not patriotic. Black Americans are NOT considered citizens of this country. We are treated like outsiders. 

I live in America, but right now I don't feel like it's my home. Ouch

i got that vibe from the preacher (big black man). in the beginning he was on some keke palmer "we are all one, we should love each other" type stuff. that's true..but black people aren't the ones who need to hear that. we are not the oppressors.
