Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.
It is not a riot.
Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)
Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The people of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.
Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.
TRUST. We Vancouverites know our stupid, mindless riots. That shit ain’t no damn riot. Not even CLOSE.

In a moss-draped rain forest in British Columbia, towering red cedars live a thousand years, and black bears are born with white fur.
those are Kermode bears and they are wonderful (terrifying but also wonderful)

On the right is the beautiful Ormidale Building (aka “151”) where I lived/worked for parts of the last decade. On the left, the Flack Block, which housed my old office at the alt. weekly Terminal City. Not seen here - but immediately around the corner - my current pub/place of work.
Vancouver Winter is Coming
Ugh. Looks like the rain returns next week. This is about the time when I start having footwear panic.
