Telling the people of Ferguson to take this anger and “channel” it to the polls, i.e elect officials that reflect them, is so fucking beside the point and victim blaming. This is ignoring disenfranchisement of the black voter (racism) and the poor voter (can’t take time off to vote). This is ignoring how expensive it is to run for office. This is ignoring that this is a matter of the dehumanization of black people and not some trivial political disagreement. Like this only serves to uphold what you think is a democracy, to uphold your just world fallacy.
