More Voices, More Passion

More folks with comments on the events surrounding and highlighted by the Ferguson grand jury decison.

Thorn Coyle writes: “I pray that we remember: We are responsible for one another’s well being,” in An Open Letter to White America

Morpheus Ravenna writes: “The thing is, property is what this society values above all else. Thus, it’s destruction of property that gets heard. This is why looting happens.” in The Violence From Below

Brennos writes: “Peace without justice is oppression and battle for justice is the only route to peace,” in Social Justice and a Goddess of Sovereignty and Battle

This is all much bigger than one cop shooting one kid. Too many people are content to frame each crime as an anomaly, as unconnected crimes by bad individuals. The alternaive is to bear the pain of being aware that they are part of a system of domination, a system that grinds them down, too.

I am not surprised that these protests (and make no mistake, it’s not just happening in Ferguson) include violence. All I am surprised by, is that anyone is surprised.
