‘Urban development’, ghetto style.
During a large rally in front of Baltimore’s City Hall, a young man introduced as “Brother Rose,” in winding and sometimes incoherent speech, praised the burning of a CVS store at the corner of Pennsylvania and North Avenues. “America didn’t care until we started affecting things they profit from… What we saying, ‘Let’s get you out of our communities.’”
He also said, “Without us running (unintelligible) Mondawmin Mall [the site of mass looting on Monday], taking back from the stores that have taken our dollars for how long, and not giving back to the community in any type of way. We made a statement. The world heard us then. They heard that the youth of Baltimore are going to get justice by any means necessary.”
He also advocated shutting down restaurants and businesses that were protecting their investments. “If they protected themselves against you, protect yourselves against them. Don’t spend your money there. Don’t give them no reason to be in your neighborhood. Kick them out.”
It was unclear how his grand plan would allow neighborhood residents to get desperately needed vital goods and services.
Well, they destroyed 200 businesses, so they’re off to a good start. The only thing they left behind in the CVS looting was suntan lotion and Father’s Day cards.
“Brother Rose” like most of his comrades who torched the city, is an illiterate, trash-talking assclown. If all the stores leave town, how is “Brother Rose” supposed to cash his welfare check and buy liquor?
Since they don’t need commodities like food, pharmacies, and medical facilities, let them rot. They’ll be fighting each other like a pack of rabid dogs over the last scraps of meat.
Aside from the usual agitators like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, the leftwing media did its part to whip up the mob into more violence.
Any business owner who operated in Baltimore should take their investment elsewhere and let the dregs live in the squalor they created. If the ‘social justice’ dimwits think the best way to achieve ‘equality’ is through devastation of their neighborhoods, have at it.
They have all kinds of space but there’s not much left to destroy.
