"Meaningless" Violence

I can't believe people are complaining about "meaningless violence" in Ferguson. How fucking tone death do you have to be to not realize that the violence has a pretty fucking clear meaning.

It means - stop treating black people like they are less than human. Stop shooting them. Stop throwing them in jail/prison in insane numbers. Stop having shittier cops in their neighborhoods than in white neighborhoods. Stop a system that helps trap them in poverty.  In fact, hey, maybe this will help you get it - how about "don't shoot anyone black, white or green if their only crime is trying to steal something. "

The system is fucking broken.  When you are born black in America until your last name is "Rock" or "Pinket-Smith"  you are pretty much fucked from the start.

Meaningless violence, my ass. People just don't want to fucking accept what it means.
