People of all nationalities are justified in defending their rights in a non-violent and reasonable manner against people of their own or other nationalities. That it is suggested otherwise by bloggers is hard for me to understand. For example, those African-Americans who stayed within the law and peacefully protested yesterday in Missouri were justified. The violent ones were not. While there was a certain degree of obstruction of economic functions during the HK demonstrations (which I criticize), there was little violence or public damage.
