What I bolded in your statement there… I whole heartedly agree!!! No offense taken because I understand where you are coming from.
To make what I was trying to say in my last post more clear, I just want to say that my question was rhetorical, as in “Why don’t they see that this violence will not help?” I do understand where they are coming from and yes, I agree that I am guilty of the same types of actions… Heck, I even know of a few posts I made here that could fall under that very same accusation. The situation is a bit different but essentially the same- the frustration of those in power, those in charge, those that have the societal privilege are the ones that need to do the most. Its frustrating to be the one who is in need and whose need is never addressed by those who can change it.
My beef is this though- this is not about Mr. Brown. This was just the catalyst situation to make the pain erupt. So I don't feel that the communities hurt and concern will be addressed unless they find another outlet, less violent, but none the less something to get the attention they need. Hard as it is, this Brown vs. cop thing needs to be let go. This isn't the battle to fight. Not here and not in this way. Its un-winable because this obviously, to me, was an accident of poor choices- on BOTH parties.
