Knee jerk/emotional response is a part of it but let's also consider that the 'Authority' usually safeguard the important things which limits targets of oppression so that emotion still needs an outlet. Often times it is the oppressed boxed into their own areas that have that 'knee jerk' response.
Without some training and very good leadership that excess energy erupts in its primeval form often in our own communities. Let us also remember that there are always opportunists who have no emotional ties to the righteous cause who act as provocateurs.
I am suggesting that our communities are devoid of good and sustained leadership.
This is by design.
We know from our High School Physics classes that nature abhors a vacuum and it will be filled.
Good leadership in the Black community is a vacuum. We need to fill it with people of our choosing and reject those given to us by the same ones that oppress us.
Ask yourself, "who is my community leader?" Then ask yourself is that person working towards the community's best interest?We have a role to play. Let's play our role
We try to live healthy and provide a healthy environment for our kids. But, the conveniences of modern living offer so many temptations, and well, it's hard to know if those things that claim to be good for us, really are good for us.

Observing trends, likes, shares, and retweets of posted content, it becomes immediately apparent that a primary subject on the minds (and hearts) of people is that of personal relationships. The first letter in Planet Restoration's 7-point platform is "R", which stands for "Relation." If we are to become restored as people and the planet, it must begin with our relationships, not only with ourselves, but especially with each other. On our next episode of "PR 13:20", our guest will be social theorist and cultural creative Charles DeVeaux, whose blog "LoveRules.Us" explores the subject of love and what it takes to sustain a long-term, intimate relationship with your significant other. Having been in a long-term, committed partnership and marriage for over 20 years, himself, Charles is, in fact, an expert at what it takes to sustain and keep the love alive. He'll share some personal insights, speak about a methodology and practice he is in the process of formalizing, and even take some calls from listeners, as we explore the subject of "Relation" and how to create a sustainable relationship.

John Robb, Resilient Communities
I met John in May at the Monterey Sustainable Foods Conference hosted by Seafood Watch. Of all the presenters and amazing people I met, John literally had me from hello. He gets it. He can tell you the difference between sustainability and resiliency and why it matters. What kind of “cred” does he have? Read below and get as excited as I am about this show. From John’s about page: “So, rather than provide you a full list of what I’ve done (an excellent sleep aide), here’s a short summary: Tier 1 counter-terrorism operator and planner (you know, the guys that got Osama); a successful serial entrepreneur (I built companies, products, and hired people); inventor, astronautical engineer, top technology analyst; CEO, CTO, COO; professional pilot, author, officer, Eagle Scout, father, husband, and global traveler. In short? I’ve been there and done that. Fortunately, this broad experience is exactly why I can help you succeed.” This show sponsored by Chapman Tucson.
