White Men Can’t Riot
Clash lyrics notwithstanding, I note that Schwarzenegger urges calm following shooting trial.
“A Los Angeles jury convicted former Bay Area Rapid Transit officer Johannes Mehserle, who is white, of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 shooting of 22-year-old Oscar Grant, who is black.”
Silly governor, riots are for blacks.
Racist? Point me to the last white riot. Not counting left-wing, hippie communists. Ok, never mind. I stand corrected.
On second thought, I think Schwarzenegger was worried about the blacks celebrating:
“Oakland police say a crowd of people forced their way into a Foot Locker store on Thursday night and began taking items.”
Yeah, I know. Some Harvard professor has undoubtedly vomited up some diatribe about how Nike theft is the modern-day equivalent of sitting in the front of the bus.
But what I want to know is: what do five-year-old Chinese sweatshop workers have to do with it? Can’t these kids drink their melamine-laced milk in peace without some Raiders fan fucking with their employer’s profit margins?
