I don’t understand the surprise and disappointment at the rioting and looting by African Americans in Ferguson, Missouri. After all, this is a white cop shooting an unarmed black teenager.
This is no different than the rioting and looting by whites following the not guilty verdict in the O.J. Simpson murder trial; or the rioting and looting by whites after the shooting death of an unarmed white teenager by a black police officer in Mobile, Alabama, back in 2012; or more recently, the rioting and looting by whites after the shooting of an unarmed white youth by a black cop in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Oh wait a minute, there was no rioting or looting by whites after any of those incidents. Sorry… Never mind.
