I have heard many MANY people on various social media platforms, blogs & posts from their living room couches & office desks castigate & pass judgement on those who “resorted to violence” during the protests in Baltimore this week and different post variations of the following:
These protests don’t do anything
The violence we have seen in these protests “muddles the issues”
Why don’t the issues also effecting the Baltimore community get addresses as much as police violence.
I’m sick of arguing with people – so I thought I would just write out my thoughts & point people here when they decide to come at me or make some ignorant post on these issues.
