Baltimore riots!

Was reading about the Baltimore riots and found it disturbing on many levels. Firstly, these kind of riots occur in developing countries or in European countries where racial issues are prominent.

The US has made tremendous strides in human equality and justice. When I hear of riots like these, I feel that this will polarize communities further. Everyone will be forced into taking a position based on racial lines.

In my opinion, a vast majority of US white people are equal opportunity assholes (meaning they are assholes but racially indifferent). A handful of them are racially motivated assholes. But even a few can cause tremendous damage to the overall image. We should know that because we get stereotyped all the time.

Based on newspaper articles, the charges are:
- Cops are racially motivated
- Cops are far more hostile to blacks and minorities than to whites.
- Since cops operate within the legal framework, they have much more latitude. Hence, they can be racial and get away with it.

I'm not convinced that that's true. I feel that statistically, cops are more racial than the normal population. But the numbers are still small to become a significant threat to society.

But for the victims, it is still a horrible crime that needs to be addressed.
