Yes. I said it. But it's not like I wanted to see more people die. I just wanted to see some action. Regardless of what i thought if he was guilty or
not. It's what I and a lot of you expected. Now let me say this, it was due to pure laziness on those who said they would riot. And let me explain
Today's generation has had everything handed to them. They rarely have to work hard for anything. This includes young people that are considered
"poor". Those same "poor" kids and young adults all have smart phones and spend more time on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook than actually reading a
They have been "dumbed down" by technology and the MSM.
They believe everything they read and hear.
I remember the riots in 92. There was immediate action after the verdict. At that time, for 90% of us, there was no Internet. People just stepped out
their front doors and started walking. They expressed their anger with the system. Sure they didn't have the Internet to organize themselves, but what
they did have was hip hop music. To influence them. I think music does have power.
In those days, hip hop had a voice. It was smart and to me it was educational. We had this...
Now here is where I'm getting at. Hip hop today has no message. It has been dumbed down. And in essence, it has dumbed down black culture.
For example, this.....
I can't understand a word this fool is even saying, and I'm sure the masses that listen to this crap can't understand it either. This is what is
popular today. This is what a lot of blacks like.
To me, it's fake hip hop. Just like the thousands of twitters that posted #riot.
Fake. Not real. Lazy.

What you dont seem to understand.. Riots just hurt the people that you are talking about.. whilst tptb sit back in their mansions watching from afar..
Laughing at the dumbed down people that are instigating/calling for it..
I guess I'm just an old fuddy duddy who forgot how to have fun, but riots represent nothing to me but people getting hurt, businesses getting torn up
and higher insurance rates for everyone in the aftermath for years to come.
I'm very glad it didn't happen, personally. Just my take.
It's not a bad thing OP. You know back in the day like you said where it was educational it was also the same guys getting shot and killed. Hip Hop
took a major turn when two of the best young rappers in the game were both shot and killed over what? EAST vs WEST...really that's all it was.
Give them time sharpton didnt get what he wanted so he is trying to organise 100 rallies in 100 cities. Those rallies are your best chance for a riot
which really just means mass robbery to the black community.
Last night I was watching people in LA (on tv) out in the streets destroying $hit. Funny that a group of people were trying to pull a fence down in
front of what looked like a business. Then you see this group haul a$$ out of the area, and the camera pans back and you see a white guy (business
owner) with what looked like a handgun in his hand. F@cker$ (rioters) are so brave until someone trumps them...

"Just wanted to see some action"???? Then go to a boxing ring. Or a roller derby.
Riots aren't just 'action'. They involve mobs of people breaking the law. Mobs of people looting and stealing. Mobs of people acting
uncivilized. Lots of people getting hurt and/or losing property. And if there were riots over the Zimmerman verdict, the riots would be mobs of
people being mindless and irrational.
"just wanted to see some action" ..... geeeeze ...... no thanks.
