A cartoon by Mike Luckovich. It seems to me absolutely inappropriate for people who have done nothing at all to try to change a status quo resulting from years of slavery, segregation, and discrimination (much less anything committed on principle to non-violent means), to criticize others when frustration with the status quo bursts forth in rioting.

When I see riots, I do not feel it appropriate to offer blame, except above all against myself, for not having found a way thus far to change the system sufficiently so that people are not living in destitution, hunted by those whose job is supposed to be to protect them, feeling despair and hopelessness.

Those actually engaged in rioting are certainly to blame for what has been happening in Baltimore.

But so am I.
