This past weekend massive riots broke out in Keene, NH at the same time and close proximity to the famed Pumpkin Festival, which is quite cool if huge numbers of elaborately carved squashes are your thing. I think it is, but I am a middle aged white guy. But this year, a huge number of super drunk college douchebags decided to go haywire and create mayhem in the streets. Riot police showed up and arrested 84 people, with many more expected to be coming as news footage is scoured over. Local colleges are threatening to expel any idiot who participated in this latest round of youth idiocy and rightfully so. Meanwhile, protests rightfully continue in Ferguson, Mo. Depending on what color you are, either one of these is a reason to hate the opposite race. Both sides are competing for who can out racist the other, and that is exactly what the powers that be want, because as long as we are divided, we won't realize how bad they are actually stealing from us.
Rioting solves nothing. It makes the rioter look uncivilized, destroys places the locals need to eat and get gas and makes white people look at blacks like savages, or vice versa as in the Keene riot. There have been 70 days of protests now in Ferguson, most peaceful and part of the American way. But if Officer Wilson doesn't get indicted, this country might well burn. Tensions are ungodly high globally and the smallest thing could lead to unimaginable results.
The latest details suggest a struggle within the police car, with conflicting eyewitness testimony as to who started what. No where in any of the evidence do I see a reason to shoot Brown, unless he was attacking him at the time, which is possible. Either way, a trial jury should be looking at this, not a grand jury. Pray the reports are wrong because of Wilson goes free, the country may go away with him.
Yet black people have been all over the airwaves, literally making stuff up about this incident. They claim no one in the media is using the word riot and are sending out memes like this:
Ferguson, Mo is a protest about social justice. Keene, NH are a bunch of drunken frat boys too stupid to attend college. Apples and oranges. Yet here some tweets from black youth not much brighter than the Keene fools.
The kids at #keenestate threw beer cans at cops and got arrested. Mike Brown threw his hands up and caught SIX shots
If anyone wanted to question if racism still exist in America, please research the coverage of #pumpkinfest riot and compare it to #Ferguson
How the media works:
Whites = Clashes
Blacks = Riots
Whites = Revelers
Blacks = Rioters
Whites = College kids
Blacks = Thugs
None of this true. White people look at Keene, NH and are siding with the cops. I write about bad cops on a weekly basis, and even I stand with the police here. Not in Ferguson. Keene. No white person, who isn't a racist is looking at Keene and Ferguson and not seeing it for what it really is.
Black people meanwhile ONLY see race and that is just as dangerous as blaming black people for all that's wrong with the world. This is not a black and white issue. One are soused jerks bent on bacchanalian destruction, while the other are angry black people seeing an opportunity to either stand up for what they think is right or criminal minded asses using the opportunity to steal. A big difference is that in Keene, those idiots are drunk. What excuse do black rioters possess?
