St Louis police whining

The Daily Show continues its excellent coverage of the recent deaths of black people at the hands of the police and ridicules the absurd whining of the St. Louis County Police Association that the raised arms ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ stance of five Rams football players as they on the field before a game constitutes some grievous insult to them that requires the NFL to apologize and punish the players. To their credit, the Rams coach and management have refused to do so.

Larry Wilmore then takes apart that absurd diversionary tactic of some people in the media of asking why people are focusing on the killing of black people by police and not talking about black-on-black crime.

    I saw this quote posted on Shakesville a day or two ago and thought it was amazingly powerful, and it definitely worth sharing here.

    I have a dream…that one day I’ll see as much outrage over professional football players raising their hands against a woman or child in anger as I’ve seen over football players raising their hands in solidarity with a community demanding justice.

    I have a dream that one day nobody will give a shit what overpaid brutes do on television. And especially that nobody will care what they think about anything other than football.
