<p>The China Buffet is a big part of life as it influenced me to eat vegetables (which despite research are actually healthy) When I was 16 or 17 maybe 15 actually I hated vegetables and sampled broccoli (pronounced brock-o-lee) at a China Buffet on East Ridge rd in Irondequoit. I loved it! Also on that fated evening I rented Vincent Price’s ‘The Raven’ from Video King. To this day that movie reminds me of Chinese food and Chinese food reminds me of the movie.</p>
Demonstrators gathered on November 17, 2014 in Clayton, MO--a suburb of St. Louis that happens to be the seat of economic and political power for the city. It is in Clayton that real systemic and institutional action could challenge white supremacy and end racism. Clayton is where St. Louis County Police Department Chief Jon Belmar works, prosecutor Bob McCulloch works over the grand jury, and is the home to many wealthy donors with an interest in maintaining the status quo.
The Injustice Freak Show had many components: a big baby, wonderful banners of Governor Jay Nixon and officer Darren Wilson, balloons, a wailing woman, scared white people, black youth demanding systemic change, plenty of police, and people to boot. The group of maybe a few hundred worked to shut parts of Clayton down with success.
The action, organized by many different groups, happened on the 101st day since the murder of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
