If only it were that clear-cut. Maryland was neither one nor the other.

If the south has to take Deleware, Maryland and Florida, then the north has to take Washington, Oregon and California.

And yet.. Since 2010.. Even if we could Maryland as the south.. There have still been 6 northern and 4 southern riots. And all the southern riots were on college campuses, and most due to sports teams.
lol uh nope.

Those states are In a different region all together. Delaware and Maryland are mid Atlantic with Maryland arguably being southern.

Florida is in the south (duh) lol.

They are finding links from Ferguson to Baltimore. This is organized and deliberate chaos. Anybody that does not realize this should open their eyes. It has less to do with either Ferguson or Baltimore and more about the "change" this administration is wanting. The end goal is communism and total government control.

The riots in both towns could easily have been prevented but that would not achieve the end goal.

I drove through Maryland once. I locked my door when a barefoot guy walked up screaming for some grits and taters and then took a dump on the side of the road. True story

Not a northern or southern thing. More like a "being too cheap and lazy to pick cotton is an eternal curse" kind of thing.

Northern alright, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire, they riot all the time. In one of those states the worst crime today probably was a fishing lure stolen out of a tackle box.

The Live Free or Die State, then you have Vermont, which basically lets 14 year olds carry guns, and Maine, "You can't get here from there so don't bother coming". Those crazy New Englanders have the country fooled.

Its not a regional thing. Its a black thing. I've never heard of a bunch of white or Chinese or Japanese people firebombing their own town, although winning a championship lets the hooligan out of some people of all races. In the 60's there were black riots all over the country, LA, Milwaukee, Detroit, Chicago, PHila. and Boston I believe were all hit by riots. There were other cities also, but my point is, it was all over.
