Most of you are aware of the riots going on in Baltimore right now. Supposedly it is because of that poor fellow who died in police custody. That shouldn’t have gone down the way it did. But what is going on now- this is not about that man who died in custody. It shouldn’t have happened… But this is nothing more than cruddy people taking advantage of a situation to try to get away with shit behavior and get free shit. They figure if everyone is doing it, they have safety in numbers. Really, how are your free Slim Jims and stolen pharmacy drugs going to get “justice for Freddie Gray?” The basis of this riot in supposedly seated in race inequality, the media and the deliberately ignorant happily perpetuating the hate by shamelessly race baiting with inflammatory headlines and ignorant memes. I’m not saying race inequality does not exist, but that’s not what all this chaos is about.
Not that long ago, there was a big riot in KY (mostly white people, guys), after of all things, a fucking (sports) game! Obviously, in regards to the Baltimore riot and the death of Mr. Gray, race is being thrown around (again) a lot by all sides. But to me, the Kentucky riot is just further support for the fact that when it comes to behavior like this, race is not the issue. Watch some of the videos circulating. There were peaceful protesters initially, but what you see in common in both the KY and MD incidents has nothing to do with race. It’s nothing but a mob of opportunistic scavengers.
And to those people I say:
You either get it or you don’t. That’s it. I’m out.
