Add comment on:"Black youth too stupid to be angry", says mayor, local nonprofits
OAKLAND, California, - "Don't get used by these protesters" says a man who was paid to drop his 'old-black-dude-who-went-to-prison' wisdom on a group of Oakland youth. "Don't get pimped. You kids are too stupid to analyze the system, you don't need to get angry. It's just the agitators who want to use you to legitimize themselves," he continues, in the city-funded nonprofit's main room, while a police negotiator sits quietly in the corner.
