Watch Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Give Emotional Speech on Unrest in Atlanta“This is not the legacy of civil rights in America — this is chaos, and we are buying into it,' Atlanta's mayor said in response to Friday night's violence the legacy of civil rights was tainted long before the protests. Do we really not remember the fact that a white supremacist is in office? If America had 100 more like her...it still wouldn't be enough strong leadership - too many weasels in office. That's why these protests won't end. Not because she was wrong. Sometimes anger just grows for way too long.
