So I had to explain to my mother what's going on in Ferguson

Mom: why do black people always assume that these things happen only because of race?

Me: why do white people assume that this bullshit ISN'T about race?

Mom: you can't talk about white people like you aren't one of them.

Me: I'm aware that I'm white, mother, that doesn't mean that I have to like white people.

Mom: stop complaining. You belong to the most privileged group of people in the world.

Me: if that were true then I'd be white AND I'd have a dick.

And that is why my mother tried to slap me today.

-----------------

I'm just going to add that it's because "you belong to the most privileged group of people in the world" that this is a problem, and it's BECAUSE OF THAT that black people think that what's happening is about race. It's BECAUSE it IS about race. They literally are not as privileged as white people, and they're not stupid. They know what's up. They know it's not right. Your mother is an idiot who contradicts the hell out of herself. Apparently, she thinks it's only about race if it benefits her.

Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.

Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)
