I'm white. Is it OK with you if I call the white guy who torched a cop car and the other whites looting animals?
Your call. You and I are as much animals as they are.

I think there's a big difference between racism and not supporting people that trash local businesses. I don't care what color someone is, if you start looting you're acting like an animal. I've seen far more black people calming others down than white people. It's not about race. It's about basic decency. There is no reason to start trashing people's property because you're mad at the system.
Not saying I haven't seen some comments I suspect were fueled by racism, but let's not say anyone who compares a rapist, a looter or a murderer to an animal is being racist.
No surprise there. That's an exceptionally bad area. Worse than Ferguson.

Also the same as last time. Back then they purposely shut down an Al Jazeera shot right before rolling in the MRAD.

Woah woah woah... Is it Black Friday already?
I want to say :facepalm:....but, not in the sense of humor....
More in the sense of, WOW.
Hard to understand what would make you say something like that when there is *clearly* a problem here, from any damned angle you look at it from....

I'm all for standing up for what one believes in and protesting peacefully, but when it turns to violence I loose respect for the cause. If you are going to protest, it should be in a way that is peaceful instead of being in a way that betrays the participants as animals.
