He's out acting like a thug

This whole thing isn't about honoring the memory of Freddie Grey it's a excuse for people to act out and be hoodlums. It's a culture of violence and ignorance. At least one parent had the ability to step up and put their kid in there place. Now if only there were more that followed suit. Civility isn't one of the back communities strong points.

Oh really? You're labeling all black communities for the crimes of a few? That's literally bigotry, you know. And flat out racism.
Also, if there's a community or culture that isn't "civil", that would be all of American culture. Our country was founded on slavery, genocide, and mass land theft. Our government has been in a state of nearly perpetual war since it's creation. We have by far the largest incarcerated population in the world, and our police kill more Americans on American soil than terrorists do. And our political parties are always calling for wars and new attacks on any country or foreign leader we disagree with. Yet you have the audacity to call out the black communities as being uncivilized?
Do you have any idea how many civilians the US killed in the Iraq War? There were at least 150,000 murdered in the first 4 years. And that's before the US stopped officially keeping track. How many of those deaths were caused by the black community? And at least 80,000 Afghan civilians were murdered in that war, even though the Afghan people had nothing to do with 9/11. Is that civilized to you? And let's not get on the millions of civilians we killed in Vietnam & Cambodia. Or are you going to blame the African American community for that too?
