For all the bad that we’ve be presented with in the Baltimore Uprising, the one good thing we can look to is the showcasing of racial disparity.  In the social media/insta-everything age we live in, you would think the “powers that be” would be a little more cognizant of the optics.  You’d think that and you’d be wrong. Very, very wrong.

Apparently, the curfew in Baltimore meant different things to different people.  Black man with dreads and you’re out past the curfew? Have a heaping helping of oleoresin capsicum.  White kids out past the curfew? Have a warning, no, have three and make sure you wash them down with a beer.  To highlight this disparity there was a #breakthecurfew movement in Baltimore, before Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake lifted the city wide curfew on Saturday.
