It is easy for white people to say we are disgusted by the rioting in Baltimore. But I ask that we put ourselves in the shoes of black residents there since Freddie Gray’s death.
How can they not be saying, “Sanford, Ferguson, Staten Island, North Charleston and now us? What are we expected to do — hold peaceful protests that have done nothing to stop the madness?”
Of course, the rioting hasn’t made things better. But imagine the frustration when your community has tried to do the noble thing and the situation only seems to get worse.
