Martin Luther King would have been spinning in his grave.

No doubt, the riots were a fucking disgrace. Yes, let's all celebrate an event where shit like the following occurred:

Quote:
Reginald Denny Incident:
" At approximately 6:45 pm, Reginald Oliver Denny, a white truck driver who stopped at a traffic light at the intersection of Florence and Normandie Avenues, was dragged from his vehicle and severely beaten by a mob of local black residents as a TV news helicopter hovered above"

Fidel Lopez beating:

"At the same intersection, just minutes after Denny was rescued, another beating was captured on video tape. Fidel Lopez, a self-employed construction worker and Guatemalan immigrant, was pulled from his truck and robbed of nearly $2,000. Damian Williams smashed his forehead open with a car stereo as another rioter attempted to slice his ear off. After Lopez lost consciousness, the crowd spray painted his chest, torso and genitals black."

Guy is a significant part of history and civil rights...although none of it was his doing. Dude got his ass kicked when he ran from the cops. Big deal. Not the first nor the last time.

Yes, big event but doesn't mean we should mourn the man. He didn't refuse to go to the back of the bus. He was just being a criminal and ran into some asshole cops.

I can't post my personal opinion on this subject as I am a mod and I need to conduct myself in a mod fashion. I'll let Chris Rock say it for me though....

There is swearing in the video.

It's really all a bunch of semantics here, I just don't like seeing him get credit for somehow furthering a movement he had no intention of helping at anytime is his entire life to begin with.
I know what I need to know bout him
He was a junky! Nuff said black, white, hispanic who cares he was a junky.
Bleeding hearts join together ohhhh poor guy he never did nothin wrong he got beat cus he was black.....fuck that he got beat cus he was a junky and endangered people. If he wasn't a fuck up junky he wouldnt have gotten a beat down.
Cops dont beat people just minding their own business strollin down the street. Not even black people.

Yeah, a real class act. Great example for all.
