Let's Not Go Nuts. And Let's Not Lose Sight Of The Real Issues.
And it also obscures the important, very real reasons why people were protesting in the first place. The issues remain -- decades of police brutality, harassment, and institutional racism.

Donald Trump will now scream about law and order and claim it's all Obama's fault. Swell.
