    Why haven't the media noticed Gov. Nixon and the Chief of police of St Louis refer to Afro Americans as folks/those folks/the folks.....I just can't believe this is acceptable.... it make me sick every time I hear it.

    How can 67% of a population allow the minority to rule? Are African American voters NOT allowed to vote and elect their own representatives? Is this because it is a better tactic to overthrow an elected government through race manipulation? Why is it surprising that the majority gets arrested? If we demand justice, why is the media looking for a different verdict -ratings? I thought that the media's job was to provide an objective view not side with subjective views regardless of the pressure for ratings? If a man commits a crime why is the non-aggressor the victim? Remember the man bullied in the convenience store??? Does that person not matter in this chaotic 67-92?

    In the 60s police oppressed peaceful law abiding citizens for exercising their right to protest injustice. In the 21st century non-law abiding citizens can oppress law abiding citizens by making a bully a martyr. Is this really America?
