Baltimore GANGS UNITE to Protect Black Businesses… And Send RIOTERS to ARAB and CHINESE Stores Instead!
Thankfully, the Mayor of Baltimore and even Obama have actually called what these rioters are – thugs and looters. But some are still defending them, even going so far as to praise the crip and bloods gangs for “uniting” to stop the violence. Except they didn’t really stop the violence, they just rerouted it to businesses owned by people whose ethnicities they didn’t like!
From the New York Times:
Some of the young men wore bandanas to hide their identities. Several young men identified themselves as members of the Crips, Bloods and Black Guerrilla Family street gangs. One Crips member, who called himself Charles, said the gang members had taken to the streets because “there is only so far that you can push people into a corner. We’re frustrated and that’s why we’re out there in the streets.”
He described how he and some Bloods members stood in front of stores that they knew were black-owned business, to protect them from looting and vandalism. He said they made sure no black youths, or reporters, were injured by rioters.
Instead, he said, they pointed the rioters toward Chinese- and Arab-owned stores.
Freddie Gray’s death, he said, had brought Baltimore’s violent gangs together.
“I rolled over here on a truck and I was the only Crip, and everybody else was Bloods, and they didn’t do anything to me,” he said. “We’re together in this.”
Glad to know it’s not about racism. Oh wait.. wait.. yeah it is.
