Baltimore has been run by Democrats since 1967, the Mayor is black, the City Council is predominantly black, the Police Commissioner is black, the police department is predominantly black, the city is 63% black. So..........where is the racism? It's called reaping what you sow!
Nail.On.Head. I can't help but be amused by all the liberal drones being interviewed on the street who talk about how these young kids (nevermind that the vast majority arrested are adults) are angry about a system that has held them down economically and targets them because of their race....and then they add to this talking point that violent protests is not the answer. So the message is "you are the victim of entrenched institutional racism that has been around since your ancestors arrived in America....but we expect you to be peaceful and don't rock the boat." HELLO...can you say mixed signals!
