white people: mike brown robbed that store!
Lawyer: no he didn’t
Store owners: nope
Eye witnesses: nah
white people: MIKE BROWN ROBBED THAT STORE
people who are paying attention: hey hey did you know that robbing a store is not actually grounds for an extrajudicial execution anyway
Um no!!… do NOT group together “white people” in this situation. Blame the ones who were at fault, the police, the shitty people defending them…. but ducking do NOT blame all white people because most of us are just as disgusted and outraged by this situation. That is not okay.
