civil rights leaders should be protesting the welfare system. Protest the NAACP CONGRESSIONAL "N" WORD caucus, black history month.

ProtestToo many negros kept in slavery by welfare system.

Teach those lazy negros to get jobs get free of the government.

The legal system works just fine if you don't like the results too bad the system worked as designed

get a job get a life.

Protest? Sharpton should be charged with inciting violence.If I were a business owner or person that was harmed in one of these so-called protest I would sue the hell out of the not so good rev.Protest is good and a good way to celebrate the young man's life but when people start to riot,steal,damage it ruins the memory and makes people despise these criminals.In no way does bad behavior justify any of this.

One other thing if I was one of these 100 city leaders I would send the bill to Sharpton for every expense related to these so-called protest.
