The last time there were riots in Baltimore were in 1968 when Dr. King was killed. It's not like people are walking out of their houses on a regular Tuesday or Wednesday and setting buildings or cars on fire. It's always in a state of unrest and people are tired. I'm not taking away from any other race, white or Latino, but I'm talking African-Americans, just black people in general. The struggle and strive of black people just to get to an equal level. I'm not talking about Obama being in office [because] that's amazing. That's great. It's another item we've accomplished; it’s something we can put on the walls and in the history books. But that's minute compared to the struggle we've fought just to be looked at as an equal race for hundreds of years.
