It’s Never Enough

Last night I watched as black person after black person stood up to condemn the rioting in Baltimore.  They stated clearly they thought this was wrong, that these young people throwing rocks and concrete and wounding cops were thugs and trouble making opportunists out to create mayhem.  They noted they would pursue these violent criminals.

And yet, conservative white America is not satisfied and scoured all the condemnations for their opportunity to twist the narrative.  Their chance to denounce the city and it’s officials.  It took seven and a half minutes of one press conference to find their “smoking gun”, but they got it.

It really does not matter how aggressively black people condemn a riot.  For White America, no amount of condemnation is good enough.

Just remember…cops got hurt, but unlike Freddie Gray, their wounds were superficial.
