    Again a good article for the same repeated comment>
    Dear Black America…the National News Media is causing more racism than ever in America by their extreme biased reporting in Ferguson. The very manner of their presentation, words and very personal statements taint their entire profession as the National News Media is actually joining in the street protests & activities.

    What reasonable person would be out after dark under such dangerous street conditions created by the violent people who are the real trouble makers???
    What Parent would bring their children out into the streets after dark to risk their lives???
    If Law Enforcement leaves now who will ensure the neighborhoods from the black anarchy of the gangs???

    The utter appearance of the crowds makes one think of mob violence not peaceful demonstrations.
    The Brown man will receive proper due process justice as any shooting by police does.
    The News Media “lynching” of Officer Wilson serves only one purpose now to create more racism.

    Every black person in America should pray that the Ferguson events are soon peacefully restored to lawful demonstrations, if not, then Public opinion will turn the next elections & future legislation into a race statement…something this Country does not need.

    Arrest everyone of the thugs. They have no respect for their community.

        I think not I didn’t go to riot and loot a city and harm people. It always seems people get out of hand before they have all the facts more and more everyday.

    Guess it isn’t just blacks causing a ruckus. Must sting for a lot of people around here.

    Now watch how many of these charges get dropped.
