On Tuesday night, Cornell Brooks, president of the NAACP, appeared on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront and said this:
"The fact of the matter is, a single act of violence set this tragic set of consequences into motion. That being the shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson. That's what, in fact, caused all of this. And one of the ways that we can respond to this tragedy is to focus anger and turn anger into action and reform the criminal justice system. We can do no less… Think about it this way. Michael Brown’s mother lost her son. Her use of an obscenity should not be a reason for us to condemn her humanity in her grief."
Shooting Michael Brown cause someone to set fire to a building? Shooting Michael Brown caused someone to burn a car? Shooting Michael Brown caused someone to smash the window of a shop that had nothing to do with the incident. Is that what he really thinks? Does he mean that whenever a police officer shoots a black person a town must be destroyed?
No reasonable, logical, civilized person would think that way. Therefore, Cornell Brooks is unreasonable, illogical and uncivilized. If he represents Black Americans, then Blacks ARE what they have been stereotyped to be.
I don't thing they are...do you?
