MTV Releases Video Supporting Anti-Police Riots

You know shit is getting crazy when even MTV's viral-video sex educator is like: let's talk about riots. Yesterday, Laci Greene posted this short video "Is Ferguson like Mockingjay?"

In a clever bait and switch, Laci entices us with The Hunger Games, and then 30 seconds in starts talking about the legacy of riots in the US. She discusses the Haymarket and Stonewall Riots, taking what otherwise might be seen as boring history and makes it accessible to MTV viewers.

This video signifies the shifts happening in discourse around tactics as the frequency and brutality of police violence becomes harder to explain or comprehend, with major publications and cultural institutions defending rioting – even militantly anti-police riots – in unprecidented ways.
