Quote of the Day   Leave a comment

Larry Wilmore speaking about protests like the one in Ferguson “It’s not that these protests are less focused it’s just that the goals are less tangible.  In the old days it was about being able to sit at a lunch counter, or going to the same schools, or even voting.  Today, we’re just trying to not get shot on our way to work.  Now look, I know it sounds like I’m exaggerating, people may think Hey Larry, calm down, calm down.  Police aren’t targeting black guys  OK.  Roll 122”

Reporter Channel 6 “Tonight a South Florida family is outraged by this image right here and others.  They say North Miami Beach used it, and the images of five other minorities as targets during weapons training.”

Outraged family member “People that are out there supposed to be protecting us are using us as target practice.”

Wilmore “That story was reported way back in today.  The police in Florida are literally using pictures of young black men as targets.  Now, how can we see that and be surprised when it happens in real life?  I’m not surprised when Kobe hits a jumper, that dude practices.”
