Of course, all of the above events descended into black on white violence in the Queen City (which has somehow shut black people out of any opportunity for advancement).
|Black Lives Matter Rally/Riot Gone Wrong: Suspect on left, victim on right|
Well, the black protester who was gunned down by a fellow black person at the Black Lives Matter rally/riot in Charlotte "died for a cause" apparently... [Charlotte protester Justin Carr ‘died for a cause,’ mom says, Charlotte Observer, 9-24-16]:
The mother of 26-year-old Justin Carr, who was fatally shot during protests in uptown on Wednesday night, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday that her son died for a cause.
Vivian Carr said her son wanted to tell his grandmother, who marched with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., that he had taken part in the protest.
“ ‘I just want to come down here and help out,’” Vivian Carr said her son told her.Police said they found Carr suffering from a gunshot wound in the 100 block of East Trade Street at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Carr was shot in the head, Observer news partner WBTV reported, citing a police report.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police on Friday arrested Rayquan Borum, 21, of Charlotte on charges of first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and being a fugitive from another state.
Carr joined hundreds of others protesting the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott as he waited in the parking lot of a University area apartment complex for his son to get off the school bus.
During protests on Thursday over Scott’s death, participants paused marching and chanting briefly for a moment of silence in Carr’s memory. A small memorial with candles was set up for Carr.
The memorial was near the Omni Hotel, at the approximate spot where officials say Carr was shot. He died Thursday afternoon at Carolinas Medical Center.
Vivian Carr told CNN’s Cooper that her son was a good man who liked to talk. A favorite topic was his expectations as a father to be, she said. A son is due in late October.
“He was so excited,” Vivian Carr told Cooper. “He wanted to teach him how to play sports, just as he did.”
Carr’s brother Kenneth told Cooper that Justin often spoke about social issues that touched his heart.
“Justin never had any problem speaking out about any particular situation or cause,” Kenneth Carr told Cooper.
Words don't do this story justice.

Just so people know how prevalent black on black homicides are in Charlotte, let's roll the ugliness from 2015 (data proving that if Charlotte had no black population, the city would have no violent crime problem). [Homicides in Charlotte rise to a 6-year high, Charlotte Observer, 1-1-16]:
Victims are mostly black
African-Americans were disproportionately represented among 2015’s homicide victims, although the ratio decreased from 2014.
While blacks make up about 35 percent of Charlotte’s population, 70 percent of the year’s homicide victims were African-American, a total of 44 people. In 2014, 76 percent of the homicide victims were black.
Putney said the numbers are even grimmer for black men.
“Black males make up 17 percent of our jurisdiction,” the chief said. “But they’re 63 percent of homicide victims, and 68 percent of homicide suspects.”
Putney said that reflects other disparities among the city’s crime victims. Blacks account for 52 percent of all crime victims, and for 62 percent of violent crime victims, he told city council in November.
Patrick Graham, the president and CEO of the Urban League of Central Carolinas, said the disparity is more about socioeconomics than race, although the two often intersect.
“What we are experiencing is a culture of violence in low-income communities where they are socially and economically isolated without the type of mentorship or visible signs of hope,” he said. “It’s the notion that you can’t rise above the circumstances in which you live. And a lot of times it’s very hard to envision something when you don’t actually see any examples of it.”
Kami Chavis Simmons, the head of Wake Forest’s criminology department, said recent high-profile police shootings of minorities may be intensifying the disparity.
Crime victims and witnesses in minority neighborhoods may be less willing to cooperate with officers, leaving violent criminals on the street for longer, and increasing the chance that they’ll commit more crimes.
“If you can’t trust the police officers, it is very difficult to form partnerships and for people to want to cooperate with them,” she said.
If you can't trust individual black people to collectively abide by the law (established long ago by white people who created the United States of America), then what hope is there for this racial group that has no problem rallying around black career criminals and destroying private property/attacking white people in their memory?
It's quite simple: if Charlotte had no black people, the city would have virtually no need police.
With a black population, the city of Charlotte has no future.
And as the statistics clearly show, black people attending Black Lives Matter rallies/riots (or merely living around other black people) don't have much of a future other... courtesy of fellow black people.
