Carol Anderson is the latest angry and deluded African American studies professer to embarrass herself over the Ferguson riots.
Anderson believes the Ferguson rioting and looting was not about black rage, it was about white rage against “progress.”
What an idiot.
The Washington Post reported:
When we look back on what happened in Ferguson, Mo., during the summer of 2014, it will be easy to think of it as yet one more episode of black rage ignited by yet another police killing of an unarmed African American male. But that has it precisely backward. What we’ve actually seen is the latest outbreak of white rage. Sure, it is cloaked in the niceties of law and order, but it is rage nonetheless.
Protests and looting naturally capture attention. But the real rage smolders in meetings where officials redraw precincts to dilute African American voting strength or seek to slash the government payrolls that have long served as sources of black employment. It goes virtually unnoticed, however, because white rage doesn’t have to take to the streets and face rubber bullets to be heard. Instead, white rage carries an aura of respectability and has access to the courts, police, legislatures and governors, who cast its efforts as noble, though they are actually driven by the most ignoble motivations…
Read the rest of this nonsense here.
And remember, white rage caused this…
White rage against progress caused these two black youths to loot a huge saw from the Ferguson electronics store in August.
