NOTE:CLIP CONTAINS PROFANITY
Last night Bill Maher and his guest Killer Mike discussed the Baltimore riots and Killer Mike justified the burning of the CVS and the other unrest. He basically said the residents of the community felt no sense of ownership so they weren’t burning their own community because they really felt no sense of community. He also said that the CVS that was burned did not employ people within the community. Keep in mind that Killer Mike is a resident of Atlanta so I don’t know where he gets his facts from but i do know that his arguments don’t justify the fire or the riots. We have a right to protest wrongdoing but we don’t have a right or a justification for illegal activity and we have to say that. Maher and Killer Mike also took some shots at Bill O’Reilly. After listening to the exchange one is led to believe Killer was invited for comic relief.

Last night I watched a BET special about the uprising in Baltimore. The crowd seemed unified around one issue and that was anger. They were angry at the mayor, the police, the church, any organized anything. We listened to alot of frustrated people. What we did not hear was responsibility. What has the community done to find themselves in their current state? That question was never asked or answered. There were questions about funding for programs, but who is going to fund them? The same government that was being railed against is the same government that will fund any program within that community. It is ironic to be dependent with an attitude, but that is the reality of Charm City.
