sbmale, it is not ALL about black and white, but it is to a great degree. Whites, and males especially, cannot stand to be outperformed in any way by blacks. It's a blow to their manhood. They can be entertained by it, and thus will worship a Michael Jordan or LeBron James, but in the workplace, education and politics their egos are very frail.
This is why they praise the police and all sorts of power. They know those institutions are in place to prevent forward progress of black males in order to keep the place of white males secure.

Noozhawk accurately reports several hundred protestors. Independent came towards the end, and saw "more than 100". Was on KEYT's site last night but they pulled it down. Santa Barbara News-Press did not cover it.

You didn't read, or chose to ignore, the report. There are people in our own community, law-abiding, who are threatened by law enforcement.
The diplomatic thing would be for you to attend such a rally and hear the stories.

Re-read please: no one claimed you celebrate deaths. You celebrate police, because they are no threat to you, and I'm going conjecture, any of your family or friends, either.

Police brutality makes all the sense in the world to those who benefit from police control. When they are no threat to you, all you do is celebrate them.

Why expose yourselves?
On Hundreds March in Solidarity with Ferguson

Reading these comments I can tell how surprisingly few Santa Barbarans are educated. You might argue that this is not a sufficient sampling, but if you spend time in Boston, Santa Cruz or Palo Alto, you can practically feel the intelligence, as they have set a higher bar for dialogue.
Yes, there are institutions of higher education, here, but apparently those communities are isolated from the general population.
