Why don't these same people do the same when children are being shot by their own?

The OP made it sound like as if the walkout was exclusive. It wasn't. That was the only point I was making.

That's called being, 'economical with the truth' by the OP, but you also did the same thing back at him/her. That avoids the real truth that there was a dearth of pink faces, while importantly some were there, not something to be ignored. more importantly taking sides, is not the same as having a grievance about events.

Yea, they should get all races involved. Doing this only allows the media to spin it however they like and we all know who owns the media.

really have no idea what you're even talking about. was I supposed to count the number of non-black faces for everybody? sorry, but my opinion is/was that you have eyes, you can count them if you wish.

economical truth - gee, why would they prevent other people from joining them?

actual truth - they didn't.

not sure what you're trying to debate about here

Due process was served, not everyone will always agree with the outcome of due process but that's no reason to throw due process and the constitution out.
If you can`t live with the good and the bad of due process then you could move somewhere that doesn`t have due process.

At this point they aren`t protesting what happened they are protesting due process.

They should be fired, nobody ever had their hands up saying don't shoot in the cases they cite. Walking off your job over lies and getting away with it just because of your skin color, the privileged minority strikes again.


Not much of a supporter of the constitution are ya?


Where does the Constitution support lies?


All depends on how you interpret it, the supreme court used the 14th amendment to protect fictitious people, aka corporations. I would call that supporting lies. You?

Hey all you ... people suggesting that we just "Get out" if we dont like it, we aren't going anywhere. Maybe you should just get out if you don't like what Americans are saying and doing. There's plenty of other countries that dont have this same turmoil going on right now. We're exercising our rights, if you don't like that then maybe you should find somewhere else to live. The United States is going to change, you may not like it, we don't care.

Your one sided, anti-justice system is going to be replaced whether you like it or not. Make way for the real Americans, you drones.

This whole fiasco has been based on lies and fueled by the race baiters on the left who need black rage to help push their agendas.Does anybody even give a crap about the truth anymore? Forensic scientists have proven Browns hands weren`t up in a surrendering posture, but rather up in a attack posture as he tried to take the cops gun. This of course only after Brown punched the cop in the face.All of this BS about him pleading to not be shot as he held his hands up is a complete fabrication.
ARE ALL OF THESE PEOPLE SO SO STUPID THEY CAN`T THINK FOR THEMSELVES? Is this whole Ferguson thing just an excuse to act like animals? Because if they really gave a # about black lives lost to gun violence they would just skip the 100 or so killed by cops in the last few years(most justified) and focus on the 20,000-25,000 killed by other blacks since they tried to frame the Guatamalan white guy Zimmerman for the same thing just 2 years ago.
It`s the classic victim mentality,When a black is killed by a white cop there`s cars flipped over, stores looted(in grievance), and baby`s mamas wailing"oh Lordy they`re coming for us again cause we black". But in the meantime, there`ll be 3000 more blacks killed by other blacks before the next 1 cop shooting and what will you hear from these concerned citizens? Crickets.
That`s right because in order to acknowledge black on black crimes you`d have to take responsibility for it and that may require hard work.Forget that! It`s way easier to play a victim and blame all on an imaginary boogeyman who may have existed in the past long ago,but certainly doesn`t exist anymore.In fact all evidence points to the boogeyman switching sides. I`m just fed up with the media and the rioters ignoring the facts.

Yeah as if any of those overpaid, overfed, overprivileged tools would ever interact with the police.

As much of a joke as DeBlasio saying he makes sure his son's careful around the police. Look! Hold your hands up, good tools.

yeah i dont get it, why would you stop other people from supporting a cause you care about?


They've had their issues co-opted before and have learned from it.

We need to respect that - and support them by talking to other White and Brown people.



No we don't. FBI just released crime statistics for 2013.

Black males, being 6% of the population of the US commited near 1000 more murders in 2013 than the 36% of the population that makes up white males.

Murder rates:

whites: 4396
blacks: 5375

www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2013/crime-in-the-u.s.-2013/offenses-known-to-law-enforcement/expanded-homicide/expanded_homicide_data_ table_3_murder_offenders_by_age_sex_and_race_2013.xls

Yeah, yeah. I know. Statistics are racist.

I agree with you two that black on black crime should be addressed as well, first people should quit glorifying it.

There is a huge difference though. Black man A kills black man B, A goes to jail. Cop shoots Black man B on the other hand, paid vacation and hero status. That's the part that every single one of you who makes this argument is missing, and is seen as the most important part by the people you are arguing against. So address it, or just stop making comments because we've heard what you've had to say and you aren't addressing the issue at hand.

"Cop shoots criminal B on the other hand, paid vacation and hero status."

Fixed that for you.

More whites get killed by cops than blacks, by the way.
