" Evil doers" can be killed. Bombed to hell and back. Justifiably.

" Demons" can be shot down. Evaporated. Justifiably.

" Criminals," justifiably, can be incarcerated or murdered.

Africans, once the first humans, became animals. Lower than animals. A pope grants rights to Europeans. Do what you want with them!

" The Europeans...were obliged to make slaves of the Africans..." Charles de Montesquieu, philosopher. And the year was 1748.

We can increase the numbers of "lovely White..." by "excluding all Blacks and Tawneys." Benjamin Franklin, statesman and scientist. And the year was 1751.

" The Negroes of Africa have by nature no feeling that rises above the trifling." Immanuel Kant, philosopher. And the year was 1764.

" Comparing them by their faculties of memory, reason, and imagination, it appears to me that in memory they are equal t the whites; in reason much inferior...and that in imagination, they are dull, tasteless, and anomalous...I advance it therefore...that the blacks...are inferior to the whites in the endowment of both body and mind." Thomas Jefferson, president. And the year was 1782.

" The Negro...exhibits the natural man in his completely wild and untamed state...for Africa is no historical part of the world." George W.F. Hegel, philosopher. And the year was 1830.

" Between the civilized European and the barbarous African there is a great gulf set..." Charles Dickens, novelist. And the year was 1848.

" I content that we are the finest race in the world and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race." Cecil Rhodes, British financier and Colonizer of South Africa. And the year is 1900.

This is the violence before the first captured African. Violence before the first African became enslaved. Violence before the first brutal act, the first rape, the first murder.

When the "demon" became visible to Officer Darren Wilson on that 9th day in August, when the "demon" is shot multiple times, when the "demon" lies dead in the street for 4 hours, Wilson was protecting himself--as scripted. For centuries.

The "demon," the "evil doer," "the inferior," less-than-human, the Black young unarmed 18-year old Micheal Brown is murdered --as scripted.
