What's your opinion on the story? I'm not interested in American news but twitter is blowing to pieces over Mike Brown's death (An Unarmed Black youth) shot by a white police officer??

There have been riots all over St. Louis since this murder.

Why is the story centered around his ethnicity? Playing the race card is both far too easy and common these days.

Just shows you that the law on guns in America is ridiculous also their law in general is poor if police officers can get away with countless similar offences with alarming regularity.

The ethnicity is central to the story. If the shooting was black on black, or black on white, there would be no story because there would be no riots.

The riots and looting are the product of black collectivism and racial solidarity, one of their brothers has been gunned down by evil whitey (and a pig to boot) so its time to run wild.

If you actually read the story, you will understand why the Police shot the man. The teenager reached into the Police car, which if I were a Police officer, would scare me.

Also, why do people always play the race-card?

Because the police officer would have definitely been less likely to shoot him if he was armed....

A bunch of people pulling the race card to enforce a 100% sale on all shops.
