America is a funny land.
Not funny as in "ha ha," but funny as in strange.
So strange that even though cops have historically been at odds with Blacks, people try to pretend that there is something else going on in a so-called justice system that sometimes seems like it persecutes just us.
But anyone who has lived in a poor neighborhood with their eyes and mind open realizes that the "Thin Blue Line," is typically erected between the "haves" and the "have nots," frequently doling out abuse to the "have nots."
And, the "have nots" don’t always get their day in court when there is abuse, which is why periodically, the people speak in the loudest voice possible—riots.
Ferguson spoke in that loud voice and now, Baltimore is speaking as well.
Perhaps no city has the reputation for rioting that Los Angeles has earned.
This April 29, marked the 23rd anniversary of the notorious LA Riots.
And it is business as usual, from Rodney King to Micheal Brown and from Eric Garner to Freddy Gray, countless Black men and women in between, as well as throughout American history.
