The last two days when I see the senseless and easily avoidable shooting of two black men ( Alton Sterling and Philando Castile) or see several police killed and wounded , while policing a rally against police brutality and racism, that was relatively peaceful up into the point of the shooting.

It reminds of the Martin Luther King Jr. Statement, that conservative media purposely omits from MLK’s legacy and that’s “Riots is the voice of the unheard.”

Obviously, one wrong does not correct another wrong, but hurt people hurt people. You can’t kill more unarmed black people than white mass shooters and expect that everyone will turn the other cheek like the great Martin Luther King Jr. Especially when you have seen this ridiculous movie so many times from Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, etc. And you know how it all ends, no conviction, even if caught on camera.
