Was Mike Brown an aspiring gang member? A Bloods wanna-be? He's flashing gang signs. What's the gang situation in Ferguson? He was not a school boy... face it, he was a thug.

yes but don't you see how hard it is to swallow for people who are racist and classist? I don't give a crap if he WAS in a gang. If he didn't do anything that warranted being shot, then so be it.
Now of course if all evidence comes out, a video, something that shows he charged the cop, tried to beat him up, shoot him, whatever...then yeah fair play to the officer. But you can see it clear as day all over the internet. Racism everywhere while we all try to pretend that 'white America' is somehow squeaky clean. Look all over posts, comments...
"these people are nothing but thugs"
"they all deserve to die"
"this wouldn't happen in a white neighborhood"
and then of course the more blatant stuff I won't repeat here for ToC reasons...
but it's there...and goddess help us all if we try and point it out
Yes...there are black people who are criminals. and white...asian...latino...European...Russian you name it
-shrugs- all part of the sickness
It's perfectly ok in this country to deem black men/woman to be bad even when not always justified...period
