  1. Mr. Gentry,

    Sir, I can’t fully understand why all your displaced rants, rages and anger are directed to those that are powerless. Of course, I don’t condone the looting that went on, most of the people protesting were law-abiding citizens that were in Ferguson, and please let’s keep it on Ferguson!

    I’ll try to keep my equanimity because I do not want to get in a shouting match with you because you are unaware of the vast sociological, psychological and economical complexities involved in the Fergusons’ in America! Sir, I been stopped by the policemen many times in the past, some were good, others were very disrespectful! And yes, I’m a professional African-American man, black man with degrees!

    And yes, my presentation when interacting with the policemen were executed with the utmost etiquette and civility! Great parents! For example I just happened to be driving a nice car and was rudely approached, from the officer’s reclamation “where’s the drugs.”

    Most policemen are wonderful, my brother is a policeman! Unlike some, who direct their rages towards the downtrodden, weak and powerless. Sir, I went and filled out a complaint against that unruly officer!

    Now, I don’t know what kind of work you do but I’ve worked in those communities and witnessed first hand, the economic and overwhelming devastation those brave individuals are living and dealing with daily, something you could never understand. You mentioned in your rants and rages let not get it contorted, convoluted, or “twisted.”

    Unfortunately, that exacted what you’ve
    managed to do, if you have no clear knowledge or immediate resolution, then please don’t respond to things you don’t understand or can’t fix, anyone can blame!

    For example, when I first was learning how to swim, I did not jump into the water or I would have drowned! Many people that live in those communities are drowning and no one comes to their rescue! Do you, Sir!

    I’ve chosen to go into the fire with these individuals countless times and make a difference and positive contribution with some of these wonderful, brave, hardworking and dedicated people that still wants the America dream!

    Another thing, Sir, I’m a veteran that served my country and was almost killed from a card-carrying Klansman serving in the navy as well! Oh, by the way, 10-20 of my white brothers stood by and watch and did nothing, as I fought valiantly for my life!

    Sir, please direct that same kind of rants and rages to the Klan that are now strong in almost 40 states in the good ole USA! I fought for over 40 years to get compensated, and still fighting!

    Lastly, if Reverend Al Sharpton was around during those acrimonious times I would have called him, like the Brown’s family did, and I know that he would have been right there for me! In closing, even with all your rants and rages, if you were killed by the police, Mr. Sharpton would be right there for you, if your family called!

    Remember, there are good policemen and racist policemen that hate us for our color. Sir, you just have not ran into the right one, just give it time, sooner or later! Stay calm! Sir, if your not seeing a doctor, please see one and get your blood pressure check I care about you!

    God bless you!

    Dr. Knox
