Regardless of skin color, I think it’s safe to say that most people agree that looting businesses and burning them to the ground is a pretty poor way to make a point.
In fact, it often has the opposite effect intended, causing the very racism and unfairness being complained about to become more deeply ingrained in society.
Fortunately, there are still tons of decent people left in the world who put color aside and focus on doing what’s right, such as these black residents in Ferguson who came to the rescue of white business owners in the area, helping to protect their property.
From Opposing Views:
The white-owned Conoco gas station has remained open, though, because a group of male black Ferguson residents are keeping guard. Derrick Johnson, a 6-foot-8 man, held an AR-15 assault rifle as he stood in a pickup truck near the station’s convenience store entrance. Three other men joined Johnson, each armed with pistols. The men said they are protecting the store out of respect for the white owner, Doug Merello, who employed them over the course of several years, reports Inquisitr. According to R.J., the men have chased away several groups of teenagers that were rampaging through the area.
This is an awesome display of the kind of unity that this country needs much more of.
What these citizens are doing transcends color and focus on right and wrong. It’s wrong to destroy the property of others and to take what doesn’t belong to you, regardless of whether or not the reason for your anger is justified.
We can only hope there are more folks like Johnson out there who are willing to look beyond superficial things like race and focus on doing good things for others.
