Protest vs Riot


There is a wide difference between protesting and rioting. Everything from civil rights to women suffrage has been catalyzed by protesting the status quo. We engage in civil protest when we fight for what is right when wrong has set the precedent!

Now the latter, rioting. Rioting is fueled by hate and lack of information not to mention unbridled energy that typically hurts other people and property. All have to do with passion and purpose.

– Passion without purpose is the equivalent of rioting.

– Purpose without passion is the equivalent of quieting.

In either case, to do nothing is silencing and that makes one just as conspicuous.

One of my Texas Southern University Profs, Dr. Eugene Barrington, always told we, graduate students (back-n-da-day), you are conspicuous by your silence.

If at the end of the day, you did something to close the gap…then at least you contributed something, anything less would be uncivilized.
