Nothing Soothes Racial Tensions Like Free Tickets To Fake Football

Ready For Some Football?
Unless you've been under a rock for a good line while, you've seen the military police level horror of what's been going on in Ferguson, MO. Before I get into the weeds of who's at fault for the execution of an unarmed black kod, or the long history of similar actions, or how a police department gets to be so overwhelmingly opposite of the racial composition of its citizenry through what is presumed to be a very long pattern of poor hiting practices and/or ...

Well, whoops. Weeds. But here's the St. Louis Rams to make things all better with... free tickets to a game for football players from those area high schools! Well, that's awfully nice.

I guess they are going to have to work out how to keep the kids from selling those seats, though. As nice as it is to treat kids to a game, the fact is that even the cheap seats at a Rams game buy a lot of groceries, and you can't just assume...

Oh, wait. It's a pre-season game. Well, I suppose the Packers are kind of fun... and getting out of town, even if it's just for a few hours, certainly has its advantages.

Just one thing... how are the kids getting to the game?

And just how many white people are going to have to go with them to vouch for their status as non-targets?
