18-year-old Michael Brown was gunned down on Saturday by a Ferguson police officer in St. Louis. Witnesses say Brown had his hands in the air as he was shot from 35 feet away.
As a black person in America, it's getting exhausting to still have to explain, in the year 2014, your right to exist in this country. To explain that you are a human being whose value sits no lower than anyone else's. To explain our basic humanity. And perhaps worst of all, to explain exactly why we are outraged.
We shouldn't have to explain why it's not acceptable for unarmed teenagers to be gunned down by the police.
We shouldn't have to explain why even though Mike Brown's life didn't matter to you or a Ferguson police officer, it mattered to someone.
We shouldn't have to explain that the clothes we wear don't protect us against, or make us more susceptible to, violence. Four little girls were bombed in their church dresses and Martin Luther King Jr. was gunned down in a suit and tie.
We shouldn't have to explain that the right to due process—that which was not afforded to Mike Brown—is in the Constitution of the United States of America. In fact, it's in there twice.
We shouldn't have to explain why the correct response to these tragedies is not, "but what about black on black crime?" 84 percent of white people killed every year are killed by other whites and no one ever attempts to undermine any of the senseless violence they suffer.
We shouldn't have to explain that the punishment for even the most heinous crimes in our country is not a public execution without a trial.
We shouldn't have to explain why we don't trust cops when a number of eyewitnesses tell a consistent and vastly different story than that of the police officer who murdered Mike Brown.
We shouldn't have to explain why we fight back when we are attacked.
We shouldn't have to explain why we deserve the same protections and rights afforded to every other citizen of America.
But maybe you can help with some other questions I have, because I am at a loss.
Can you explain why Mike Brown was gunned down in the street while James Eagan Holmes, who killed twelve people and injured 70 others after opening fire in a movie theater, was escorted into a squad car? Can you explain why Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is still alive but Mike Brown isn't? What about Jared Lee Loughner?
Can you explain why Mike Brown's body was left uncovered in the middle of the street for hours for any reason other than to send a message to his community?
Can you explain why a black man is killed by the police every 28 hours in this country?
Can you explain why media outlets reporting on his death used the photo of Mike Brown on the left instead of the right?
This Is Why We're Mad About the Shooting of Mike Brown
Can you explain why the Ferguson Police Department disproportionally searches black people while the contraband hit rate for white people is higher?
Can you explain the complete disregard for black life that resulted in the deaths of John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Tarika Wilson, Malcolm Ferguson, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo, Yvette Smith, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell, Kathryn Johnston and Rekia Boyd?
Can you explain why the police rolled up to a candlelight vigil in SWAT gear?
Better yet, can you explain any of that to Mike Brown's mother?
None of this tripe gives you subhuman sreggin the right or option to loot and riot, even if you chimps are stupid enough to ruin your own roach infested ghettoes in the process.
The police should be given full rights to shoot any of these thieving negro scum dead on sight in any situation of looting or rioting. If there's not enough police, bring in the National Guard.
Hell, I'll reenlist and volunteer to be the first ones shipped out. Bag me a few more negroes, all in a day's work. It would be a blast.

And I will not give any reggin any pity or self restraint, I would literally break them if given the opportunity to do so legally in self defense.
By the way phoenix, where were you trained to fight? I was trained by the best, the U.S. Military. They didn't teach me how to fight; they taught me how to kill.
What could you possibly do, pull out your "gat"? Because I've got you beat there, too.
Hahahahahahahhahahahahahahahah aha.....You may as well said you are a member of MI6 or CIA.....Like I said...Nothing but a scared little bitch talking shit from your moms basement...How childish! How old are you dude 15?

just left Wal-Mart. was in back of line and this white chick had a huge cart of stuff. Black guy behind her had maybe 5 things in his cart. I guess she was comparing prices or whatever and she told him she usually takes a while so he might just want to check his own stuff out so he's not waiting forever. He starts cussing her like a dog, calling her a m'fer and saying he was a grown ass man and nobody was gonna tell him what to do. She was speechless for a min then went the f off on him. It was kinda funny. She took her sweet time too. I'm starting to dislike blacks more and more everyday.
