  • "If black people are going to act like animals every time they're treated like animals, racists like me will never respect them."

    Ira Richmond
    Business Owner
  • "Riots are tragic releases following years of pent-up rage and despair. Unless they occur after a sports championship. Those rule."

    Plumber
  • "This is the worst thing to happen in Cincinnati since that radio station dropped all those flightless Thanksgiving turkeys from a helicopter."

    Systems Analyst
