We’re not a real life blog. I get that. We make fun of stupid shit and stupid people. We’re an escape from reality. Something to laugh at to get you through your miserable life. So covering the Ferguson riots isn’t really our bag. Although making fun of CNN’s Don Lemon last night was kind of fun. Seriously dude be more of pussy. You got Chris Cuomo and Jake Tapper eating tear gas. You got that other chick taking rocks of the head and where are you? You’re wearing a gas mask in the police station curled up in the fetal position sucking on your thumb, but I digress.
The point of this blog is do racist people know they’re racist? Like there is nothing worse than people who are clearly racist using events like last night as an excuse to be racist while pretending they aren’t. It’s the same people you see on your timelines everyday saying borderline racist stuff with racist overtones. And just like clockwork they come out in a moment like last night because they think it validates their stance. They think they can say borderline racist shit now without it coming across as overtly racist. It’s almost an excuse for them. Like look black people are rioting and looting. It’s easy to say they are are savages now. But where were these people during the 100 other riots that took place this year? Where were they when UNH, Umass, Keene State kids were throwing beer bottles and rocks at cops? Where were they during the US Open of surfing riots? Where were these people when Vancouver burned their city to the ground? Where were these people when West Virginia wins a game at anything or Kentucky basketball riots?
Bottomline is there are idiots everywhere. Doesn’t matter if you’re black or white or what. Truthfully the Ferguson riots were gonna happen whether Darren Wilson was indicted or not because everywhere you go there are morons who use big events to riot. That’s just life. It’s just so infuriating to see closet racists use this as an excuse to validate their racist ideology and be like “I told you so” on social media. No you didn’t. You were racist before this happened and you’re racist now. That’s how racists work. They see everything in racist terms regardless of the event. Obviously it’s fair to discuss racism with this case, but I’m strictly talking about the reaction to the riots.
PS – I don’t know how anybody can be on one side or the other about this verdict. Who the fuck knows what happened? There is so much he said. Only Darren Wilson and the kid he was with know the real truth.
