the 'grid: No justice no peace.
b1-66er: there's no peace at home. my housemate's lying down in a DEEP funk (and I don't mean the ohio players kind). we watched the verdict. I thought she was going to throw up.
'g: It is an unfortunate decision but to see the ass whores tear up the city is worse in my opinion. It is like the two riots in Los Angeles revisited.
b1: yes. I've never understood rioting. (including winning/losing chapionships.) it seems like it "punishes" unnecessary targets ...
... and fundamentally doesn't help the cause. having said that, it's not completely clear to me what good the gandhi/king approach is either ...
... not unless you REALLY get on it. TOTAL black-folk walk-out would be interesting.
'g: I like how Jackson plays the King role but is a race baiter. He perpetuates more shit within the desperate and underserved black communities than does any good.
b1: so right. he's such a strange man. being on the same balcony as MLK when he caught a bullet doesn't make you a great man by default...
...it absolutely DOES make you a "near miss."
'g: Yes. He should continue to count his blessings and stop being an ass.
