Apparently I’m supposed to be more mad that somebody told JonTron to shut up than the fact that JonTron genuinely & unironically compared himself to people who were systematically murdered by the Klan like I think we need to really take a step back here & remind ourselves that TumblrInAction & similar hubs of ideology like this genuinely consider themselves the sane & rational & logical & common sense party despite the fact they run all five cylinders on an emotional reactionary level so self-obsessed they completely skip over a dude who got yelled at by people on Twitter comparing himself to slaves in the antebellum South to get angry over the lack of “mature responses”

Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.

It is not a riot.

Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)

Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.

Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.
