Protesting is one thing, rioting and looting is another. The clip was enough to anger everyone, regardless of color. A relatively peaceful protest demonstration (there would always likely be a couple of hotheads) would have gone a lot further toward empathy as far as the reality of racial abuse. This type of lawlessness only furthers and strengthens negative racist attitudes.
I saw a clip this morning of what appeared to be white looters carrying beer cases out of a store. There are those ready to jump at an opportunity when it presents itself. ...and who suffers the most when a neighborhood is ravaged?
