Response to WilliamPitt (Original post)

17. Right wing racists are outraged on Rams gameday internet chat...

I briefly argued with one of them but saw no reason to continue when no reasonable statements were forthcoming.

The conservative mind is preconditioned to accept the police officer's version of ANYTHING....remember back to Rodney King's beating, even though that was ON TAPE, the majority of conservatives I knew thought that King was entirely to blame for not surrendering and staying down. Same goddamn thing here.

St. Louis is still a seething racial grievance hotbed right now. Michael Brown's execution is just one of many things boiling under a lid that cannot hold...we have near total segregation in the region, minorities have suffered a far deeper and longer recession since 2007 and really this is a situation that extends back to the civil rights movement of the 60's.

This issue is not going away and nor should it.
