It has been over two weeks since Michael Brown was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson. Almost from the first day the racial narrative has been in place.
This is the racial narrative:
One day, for no particular reason, a racist white cop murdered an unarmed black teen in cold blood in broad daylight in front of witnesses. The unarmed black teen was doing nothing except walking down the street when the racist white cop stopped him for no reason and started harassing him. The unarmed black teen tried to run and the racist white cop began shooting him in the back. The unarmed black teen stopped and turned around with his hands in the air, trying to surrender. The racist white cop then shot the unarmed black teen several more times, including a final shot in the head as he lay wounded on the street.
This type of cold blooded murder of unarmed black men and boys by racist white cops is epidemic in this racist nation.
Sometimes instead of a racist white cop it is a racist white vigilante/cop wannabe who does the shooting. Sometimes there is more than one racist white cop involved. The unarmed black teen/man is always blameless and innocent, at least at the beginning of the narrative.
The amazing thing about the racial narrative is that it is basically impervious to contradictory facts, no matter how indisputable they may be.
Meanwhile, Michael Brown was buried today. It was a media circus.
I picked a bad week to quit drinking.
