An Open Letter To The Rioters In Ferguson That Every American NEEDS To See
An incredible article from Steven Crowder.
It’s the one-year anniversary honoring the fallen criminal, Mike Brown. The man who attacked a police officer, reached for his gun, was shot, and was subsequently paid homage through violent protests, which ultimately fell apart when Darren Wilson (the officer involved) was 100% cleared of any wrong-doing by a grand jury.
So how do you Ferguson citizens honor it? By more violence of course. You characters, you.
Yes, a man was shot by a police officer again in Ferguson. Yes, just like the last time, the perp seems to have been completely in the wrong. This time, by perhaps outright shooting at the officer. But, I’m willing to wait for more facts to come in. Perhaps the officer was just a racist looking to shoot a black guy in Ferguson, all but guaranteeing the loss of his job on the force. Career-suicide by black-fire, as it were. It is a distinct possibility.
Here’s the problem with #BlackLivesMatter and Ferguson’s behavior at large: whether it’s shooting at cops (and then complaining about the resulting return fire), or swarming Bernie Sanders’ election rally, you’re only serving to make things worse. It has nothing to do with the fact that you’re black, and everything to do with the fact that you’re irritating crapbags.
The worst part is that you’ve probably made the U.S.A. a more racist place. In associating your asinine, juvenile behavior with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter, you’ve hijacked the voice for innocent black Americans. Many black Americans don’t really want to be associated with the embarrassing events of Ferguson (or Baltimore). Many black Americans don’t want to see police officers vilified and attacked. Many black Americans don’t want their neighborhoods in Baltimore to now enjoy the highest crime rate in the USA due to the police force being scared away by your current PR nightmare.
