Coates on the Baltimore Riots of 2015

Coates on the State's call for peace during the Baltimore riots of 2015.


"When nonviolence is preached as an attempt to evade the repercussions of political brutality, it betrays itself. When nonviolence begins halfway through the war with the aggressor calling time out, it exposes itself as a ruse. When nonviolence is preached by the representatives of the state, while the state doles out heaps of violence to its citizens, it reveals itself to be a con."

- Ta-Nehisi Coates
