The scale of the riots

In certain circles (like my circles) it’s popular to post things about how when whites riot (and they do) we call it frat boys having a good time. Now whites frat boys riot over stupid shit, like their sport’s team winning, or their sport’s team losing. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not down with frat boy culture. I think…

Don’t believe the hype

Messages to rioters

These messages also need to be heard by all the apologists for rioters as well. Especially those that live nowhere near Baltimore.

Baltimore mom beats son for rioting

This had become a popular video in Baltimore. And the interview with moms. You know, technically, in our-spanking-is-wrong society, mom committed the crime of physical child abuse.
