Too bad that some will use a sound byte or some protesters who might not really be protesters or might not really be aligned with the original call of
protesters with a cause, the one against unjust and disproportionate focus by police on certain groups, not just black, but in the case of Ferguson
and Staten Island incidents, the victims happened to be black.
Are you one of those people that look for any banner or representative to make all protesters and protests look illegitimate or worse give them a
black eye, no pun, then go and build a monolithic statement like using one of the twitter feeds to brand them or put them into your box.
I can, however, find one thing that might work against their method and point though, there are so many protesters that are not just black, on the
first day of the police shootings in NYC, CNN showed a crowd of protesters, very few of them were black, but this is more of the exception than the
So if you really want a response to your original post on defining race baiting, if you aren't what responses are you attempting to illicit by the
thread? your injected tone and feelings when the whole point of the protest involves focusing on race, the black protesters, the white or other
patrons at the eateries, how can it not be race baiting, especially when this protest is a very, very small group in comparison to the many that
stayed on message.
Of course, only the objective minded might be able to respond or handle something like this with some clarity, but for the average Joe, they won't see
anything else except a hook, line and sinker with a big black worm on it, right? so again if what you post is not race baiting, what is it? do you
have an actual point that would not attempt to place all protesters into the same box, go find some footage of protesters on point and presenting
their views, did you do that? if so then I might retract my feelings of whether or not you are race baiting, perpetuating some very unorthodox or rude
ways to get a a point across, but even so, is there etiquette or rule that might somehow make these protesters out of bounds because that's the way
they feel ? yes it was less tactful, but this should not diminish any of the real points established after deaths occurred and no trials were deemed
necessary, but after the fact many inconsistencies were found, actually one that I myself really had to keep going back to.
The story about Mike Brown is there for anyone to investigate, I really felt that the store incident was bad, but only recently I found high
resolution of the sandals that Mike Brown had on in the store, but then there appeared to be some yellow sneakers on his body, there are also many
inconsistencies smacking of coverups, or not so true series of events given not by the so called lying witnesses but by some very clever law
enforcement colluding with police, the same story that has been happening for years and years, "training day" situations in real life.
