Are we on the verge of another race riot? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


August 27, 2014 by The ReadyWriter


There are some details and incidents about racial unrest recently here in the United States.

In April 1992, one of the nation’s largest bouts of racial violence came behind the acquittal of four Los Angeles police officers who were videotaped beating unarmed Rodney King in April 1992. When that unrest subsided, 53 people had been killed and more than 2,000 had been injured. Property damage was estimated at $1 billion dollars or more.

Over the past 30 years, all hell has broken loose on numerous occasions, the most recent of course being the headline-grabbing racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. Compared to previous incidents, Ferguson has been pretty rough both in terms of its duration and the number of arrests involved.

These racial unrest was roiled after 18-year-old Michael Brown, an unarmed teen, who was black, was shot and killed by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, on Aug. 9.

If justice and fairness does not begin with the arrest of the police officer who killed Mike Brown, race riots might very well ensue again. Black males, who have recently been gunned down, wrestled down and/or killed by white men and/or white police officers who claim “reasonable fear” or “self-defense” as their defense, is becoming a weak or repeated cover.

    If Darren Wilson is NOT CHARGED I’d say it’s VERY possible.

    “Are we on the verge of another race riot?”
    Um if they don’t FIND, arrest and charge that cop in Ferguson, Pretty much!


  3. Bobby says:

    Black folk tired!!!!!!!


  4. Mrs. Hawthorne says:

    well in north carolina the kkk held a rally right across the street from a black church function. you could here the people praying while the cops were there to make sure it didn’t get out of hand. so with the way things are going, anything’s possible.


  5. Mrs. Hawthorne says:

    Afternoon all. This is going to be a good conversations.


  6. Cameo says:

    well seeing that Missouri already rioted when ‘big mike brown’ was shot. if that cop is acquitted them people just may go ballistic.


  7. 2Thick says:

    Not only what went down in MO but what went down in NY too….Let us not 4get Eric Garner. The lil cop who killed him by choke hold. I can see shit implode from NY to MO!


  8. Tamala says:

    Hmmmm this is something to think about O_o


  9. Adam says:

    We need to focus on the facts of the case and let the justice system take its course.

    Every day we are hearing the police get more and more out of hand with their use of force.

    If we don’t hold them accountable, then it is only a matter of time they turn that force against us.

    Was the cop abusing his power, or was his response reasonable in the circumstances…I don’t know, you don’t know.

    We need to find out before issuing judgement on either side.

    And my God! I pray it doesn’t come to race riots in MO or anywhere for that matter.

  10. Nicole says:

    While I am not a supporter of racism in any form, I’m not DOWN for rioters.


  11. Yes says:

    rioting is an unfortunate HUMAN phenomenon. every ethinicity engages in it. don’t belive me? google sports riots for a start.

    most riots are sports riots and engaged in by white people. LOL 😆


  12. Miss Ang says:

    Yes I am afraid we may be on the verge of race riots and rioting is not part of the solution!! Nor will it solve the problem or the issue.. Just saying 😦


  13. angelhair says:

    There is only one cause…justice. When justice is denied this is what you get. Let’s get real here. We have a massive racial disparity in this town and it was a powder keg ready for a spark…and spark the cop did. A nearly all white police force knocks off the wrong black kid and they provided the excuse for the thugs to come out and destroy the infrastructure. Hey, it could happen anywhere.

    There is injustice and you can only kick your dog so long before he bites your balls people!


  14. Ashanti says:

    We have a real problem in this country, and the media is throwing fuel on the fire!!!!


  15. Rezzie says:

    We are witnessing the result of the Judaization of the American police – the early stages – in Missouri. The cold-blooded murder of a black teenager, who with his hands up was reportedly begging a cop for his life, is exactly what we see daily in Israel. Just as in Israel, the murders of teenagers are pretexts for the police state.


  16. Omar says:

    Rioting give these ignant monfuckers a reason to loot.


  17. Pinky says:

    race riot, i think this needs to be defined. I see some of us are a bit confused.


  18. Starr says:

    a race riot is happening now! congress hate our black president (Barack Obama) so as leaders some people follow and spit that hatred rhetoric. sad 😦 but it’s happening now!


  19. BillyBoy says:

    I don’t know but the shit is possible!


  20. HarlemGirl says:

    I still say killing Mike Brown was an emotional killing. That shot to the head is what killed him.


  21. HarlemGirl says:

    Tuning in though


  22. Acquitta says:

    Damn folk gone for the weekend already? Where is everyone? Powerful show.


  23. Omar says:

    Good morning!
    Good show last night Tra


    • Daisy says:

      Morning Omar….Her show was good as usual. It’s scary to think about all the black men that have been killed since Obama took office. And she made an interesting statement:: If they can’t get to the black man in office, then they’ll get the black man on the street. people are just that crazy.
