    This was posted in the Ferguson Scanner, and later deleted. I copied it before it disappeared, and emailed it to myself. I am posting it here because I found this man's message to be in keeping with my own thoughts about the events going on in Ferguson. It's lengthy, but worth reading. See if you agree, and let me know your thoughts (I blanked out references to the 'n' word, for FB rules):





    My Name is William G. Lillas....

    I wanted to clear up a few black and white questions and answers. The things I state are facts. They are not downloaded from some media website, not propaganda, just observations from a 83 year old black man, born in America:

    "I was told by my parents (yes, a married man and woman with my last name), that I was n***. We lived in "N*** Town" in a small Texas town, no A/C, grass growing through the floor, no car, no TV. We washed our bodies with lye soap that my mother made, by hand. I thought I was a n***, until I graduated high school, went to college, did an enlistment in the Army, and got a job. I am now retired, own my own home, have 6 children by ONE WOMAN, and we all have the same last name. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts, a Master's Degree in Sociology. My retirement, VA disability from combat in the Korean War (I only have one leg), and part-time pay in a local college, is about $125,000 a year. From dirt poor n***, to old, black, proud American.

    Yes, I am black, and I can say "n***", because I understand the true meaning of the word.

    Let's clear up a few things about the Michael Brown incident.

    -Fact: It is not called "shoplifting or stealing", it's called "robbery", which is a felony. Brown stole something and assaulted someone, that means ROBBERY. It's on video, and it's a fact. Not shoplifting, not theft, not "lifting" a few cigars, but ROBBERY!

    -Michael Brown, like Trayvon, was portrayed by the media as a "little black boy", cute little headphones, and his cap and gown photo, gunned down by a ruthless police assassin, executed by "whitey". First, I have never seen a cop drag a person into their car's driver door to arrest them. So, let us be clear, Michael Brown was a n***; a sorry assed, criminal, hoodlum, n***. Nobody wants to say that, but I will. He had a criminal record a mile long, was known for numerous assaults, robberies, including the one you saw with your own eyes, and still refuse to call it a robbery. He was, like so many others, living a life that he thought he was "entitled" to, just for being alive. Gangsta rap, weed, drinking, guns, and those stupid-assed low profile rims, makes him some kind of bad-ass n***.

    -I have fought communist Chinese and North Korean soldiers in the 1950's with more honor than that n***. Yep, I peeled potatoes and shot communists. That's the only job a n*** soldier could get.

    Rodney King? Black Riots!

    Trayvon? Black Riots!

    -Hurricane Katrina? Black Riots! Stealing TV's, designer clothes, etc.

    . Simpson kills white man and white woman, found NOT GUILTY? Did white folks riot? Nope!

    -In fact, when is the last time white people rioted? Civil War, maybe? That's because they are, relatively, civilized people, much like many black Americans. Protesting is one thing, hell, I'm all for it. Even if you are an ignorant idiot, you have a right to protest.

    -Stop only showing the young black "cap and gown" photos of Michael. Charles Manson may have a few of those laying around, as well. Show the n*** "gangsta" photos of the "poor unarmed teenager" (grown man) pics that have been removed from his Facebook page, holding the loaded pistol, smoking weed, with a mouthful of money.

    -Militarization? The stupid-assed media that publicizes this has no idea what "militarization" really is. Cops wear helmets and vests, and drive armored vehicle because unemployed n***s thrown bricks at them, moron! You put on an "Adam 12" uniform and walk down the streets of Ferguson during the criminal riots. I can guarantee that you'll jump into the first armored "military tank" that you see.

    -You only "want the police" when you "need the police", otherwise, you mock and fear what you do not understand about the police. And by the way, the police are trained to take your shit, but I wouldn't fuck around with those Army National Guard, they aren't as well disciplined "culturally" to take your shit like police do every day. They will ventilate your black asses with M-16s, with military precision and extreme prejudice.

    -And finally, the way we protest and demand justice, is run down the streets breaking shit, looting stores, and acting like a bunch of untrained monkeys? Hell, after Rodney King, criminal n***s were actually killing people, thinking they were entitled to be worse criminals than they already were. For those black criminals that do that, you are a disgrace to your race, inflamed by idiots like Al Sharpton, instead of listening to logic from proud black Americans, like Bill Cosby, Samuel Jackson, Colin Powell, Allen West, me, etc.

    -You blame white people for your ignorance, criminal acts, unemployed laziness, etc.

    -You blame white people for 89% of the prisons in America being full of blacks. They did nothing wrong, the racists white cops framed them all, right? No chance at school, no chance for college, military, employment?

    BULL SHIT!

    -More n***s kill n***s, than n***s killing whites, whites killing n***s, and whites killing . I find this astounding.

    -It's not white peoples' faults, the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by a white man years ago. You can go to school, get a job, buy a house, and vote, JUST LIKE WHITE FOLKS!!!! You are not a slave, you are not discriminated against! Slavery is abolished, and nobody alive today, was alive when it was popular. Get over it! You are discriminated against because you are a criminal, sorry-assed n***. Otherwise, black Americans are treated like everyone else.

    -If you choose to create "baby daddy and baby mama", and fake disabilities as an excuse for laziness to draw social security disability instead of husband, wife, family, job, mortgage, it's YOUR FAULT, not white folks. And there are a lot of proud black Americans that will tell you the same, as I AM ONE OF THEM!!!

    -Remember, the way you act on the camera, is remembered by everyone who sees it. They will never forget it. It shows them how you, as the black race, respond to situations that don't particularly go the way you think they should. It will become a reference standard, something they expect from you when the next media report doesn't go your way. Stop being stupid n***s, and be a proud black American. My parents raised me well, but they were wrong about one thing, I am not a n***.

    I will not be around long. While my mind is still sharp, and my aim is still good, my body is eating away with cancer. It started in the prostate, and is spreading rapidly. After I die, I have asked my children to publish my writings, and include my name. Although I am not expecting any miracles, I can only hope that Americans will stop blaming color, start blaming criminals, and see people for what the y really are. We have too many countries that want us dead. We should not be fighting each other.

    I am truly disappointed in you for not doing your homework on this tragic event. You obviously didn't listen to the prosecutor or read the Grand Jury report (admittedly it is long, but that IS your job if you are going to comment on the situation). I expected this kind of reporting and worse from "The View" and got it, but not from you. It is a horrible thing to happen, but the Grand Jury deliberated for hours and hours, looked at pages and pages of evidence, talked to people (over 40) some that came forward on the QT (some were black) to tell what they actually saw not hearsay or what they thought happened or were told happened, but what they actually saw and did not change their stories. Some witnesses were discredited when changing their stories after they heard the facts, etc. They also talked to the officer. The Jury was chosen in May not after the shooting and stayed after their term was up. They gave of their time from work and from their families in fear of their lives and lives of their families. They knew if they did not indict they were in danger as well as their families and that there would be riots. They did what they thought was right. (We were not in that room with Let's listen and calm the situation not exacerbate it. I might add the Jury was made up of a diverse group; all ages, incomes, races, etc. Riots, looting, robbery, setting fires, and killing are not what should take place. Let's not forget some of these people were not even from Ferguson. This was not a crime of race and killing black boys as "The View" likes to say (and worse). Please do your homework and then apologize to the people of Missouri. Missouri is a good place to live. It is not the most racist place in the . (again as "The View" says. Please let me continue to have faith in you to report with knowledge instead of emotion.moreless

    Really Ladies, I am a fan of your show until today! You four insulted the grand jury in Ferguson who were chosen to do their civic duty, they heard testimony and saw evidence we were not privy to but all four of you obviously consider them STUPID and unable to make an informed decision. From what I heard on the news Michael Brown was NOT shot in the back (per forensic evidence) and did not comply with the officers instruction. I feel you should devote one entire show to educating the public on the law, the evidence in this case and explain the forensic evidence to ALL of us that are incapable of making an informed decision. I look forward to watching the four of you muddle through that show.moreless

    I can honestly say as a mother of 4, 2 of which are adopted that I love my kids more than anything. I also worry about them everyday! The comment about having a black child and not letting them go outside because of the police was to much to ignore. Every child in this country and this world for that matter faces fear and possibly death everyday! Race is no matter. Kids are starving, being sold into slavery, being beheaded, raped and abused, given drugs, bullied,abducted and the list goes on and on.... I could just as easily let the fear of the world keep my kids inside, but it is the world we live in and we need to teach our kids different. All you did today was stir the hate more. My kids will go out into this world and show the good inside themselves. They will love and respect everyone, even those who don't deserve it. They will make this world better for everyone! That's the attitude we need to show our kids. I believe one of the greatest tools for evil is our tongues and what we speak. Thank you.moreless
