Anonymous asked: Can you prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the shooting in ferguson was a result of racial inequality? Do you have an argument that would stand in a court of law? If you can give me that I would gladly agree with you.
I never said the shooting was without a doubt, a result of racial inequality.
I said, specifically, that the current unrest is a result of racial inequality.
I base this statement on the fact that the majority of people interviewed by the press in Ferguson believe their unrest is a result of a legacy of racial disparity in the town. Thus, in this case, the only burden I have is to identify that the motivation of a group of people for protesting are based on frustration with racial disparity. Thanks to the very nature of a protest, this motivation is incredibly easy to prove, especially in this case.
That being said, I believe, personally, that it is LIKELY the situation was, at least escalated to a shooting by racial prejudice on the part of the officer.
But my thoughts are not on trial, nor are yours. If you wish to agree or disagree with me, I respect your decision and don’t wish to flame with you, anon. I have no interest in screaming at anyone about how right I think I am.
Regardless of your thoughts on racism in America, though, those links to the most horrific parts of the NDAA are worth getting angry over and do effect everyone.
