this thing w ferguson is making me wonder how many of the historical riots that happened in the 20th century they teach you about in school were actually ‘riots’ ??
I’m scared that in 40 years, I’m gonna have to tell my child what really happened because their textbooks will be full of lies
40 years ago, all something like this would get would be five minutes on the evening news. Now, with the internet, anyone who cares to can follow it in real time, and get info from normal people who are actually there. It’s…not enough, but it’s a step in the right direction, at least.
