I would say Greg hardy would be playing for any other team in the league right now. We caved simple and plain. Had we not hardy would have been suspended the nflpa would have appealed and won and he would have yet to miss a game
asymmetrical power relations of the past that have created social tensions of today are what create a difference between how killings are perceived. in context, it is much less likely that the black cop killed the white kid because he was white, whereas white cops killing kids because, ultimately, they were black, has a long and ugly historical precedent.
i'm sure you know this, though.
Don't you think that is a problem in 2014? EVERY time a black kid is shot by a white officer automatically with out facts and with out fail. HE'S A RACIST KILLING PIG. and without out fail and without out fact THAT BLACK KID HAD IT COMING. Those two groups scream the loudest and the large majority of sane people wait for facts to come out and by the time they do the media train is already plowing a head full force.
How is laying in the street stopping people from where they are going a protest. What if someone was on their way to a dying loved ones bed side and now they will never get to say good bye. Mike Brown made a few mistakes and put himself in a bad situation. If he was any other color you wouldn't give two shits about him. That's as much of a problem as anything that you're protesting.
Good Lord we've scored half our points in the fourth quarter. You'd think that means we're closing out games. Nope the other team has quit trying at that point to minimize our embarrassment. That said. All aboard the playoff express!!
