Another anecdote from that weekend rally
to support the officer that shot Michael Brown: Did we mention that it's not about racism, no sir, can't imagine where you got that idea
While CNN was talking to pro-Wilson demonstrators, a local resident, Victor Dewan, came by to tell the rally to go home, that he doesn't want trouble in his neighborhood.
"We don't want any controversy. There's a lot of black people live around here and I want for the peace. Let them get out of here. We don't want this street to be any violent," said Dewan.
But as he voiced his displeasure, divisions here became apparent once more, with protesters telling Dewan that it is their First Amendment right to protest, and telling him they are U.S. citizens.
Dewan replied that he is a U.S. citizen, too. Then one protester told him to learn to speak English.
"I am speaking English," Dewan said.
"I am speaking English do you understand that?! Stupid jack***, do you understand that?!" a protester yelled at Dewan.
It is purely coincidence that the crowd supporting Wilson was as white as the driven snow, and that the crowd's first instinct upon being confronted with an alternate opinion is to suppose the objector is not a real American anyhow. Pure. Coincidence.
And anyway, "It was a good kill."
