Essentice question

In the James brown document the whole point was how the people reacted to the death of Dr Martin Luther King Jr. People wanted to fight each other damage things it was a whole big scene but on that night James brown had a concert he wanted to perform where everyone was going crazy he wanted to bring the community together with out violence. The whole point on the James Byrd document was racism shouldn't bring it to a point were u have to kill someone because of their race even if you were drunk and taking down that fence in the graveyard that was separating the people that were buried that were also black and white.
