Among the many protester was the famous Mad Blogger - stidh.
We spoke with stidh during the protests and here's how it
CNN: So - stidh. How does it feel go be there in the mainstream
of American protesters?
CNN: What lead you to take part in this protest - stidh?
stidh: I'm glad ya asked that question - Anderson. And I'm
gonna give ya the answer right now.
I came here today because I'm a housewife - but in my spare time
I care about things. And I wanted to be where the action is. The
action - here in this Great Country of Ours - where folks stand
up for each Other - and where they stand up for Right.
CNN: That's great - Sue. And how do YOU think the protest is
stidh: I think it is Great - Anderson. The People here are orderly -
standing up for what they Believe to be true - that in fact this
slaying of a young Black man - was Wrong. And it was Racist. But
these People are not taking the Law into their own hands - but rather
they are just 'speaking out' - something that we here in America -
can do - without fear of repercussion. It's called Freedom of Speech -
CNN: I totally agree - stidh. Will you be staying here long?
stidh: No Anderson. My work here is done. I just wanted to come here
and see for myself - the American Spirit In Action. Now I will go
back home - to Southern Indiana - and continue to do what I love best -
what is inherent in my Life. And I'm talking about two things -
Anderson. Being a housewife - something that is the Core Of My Very
Existence - and Blogging - which is The Way Of The Future - for it is
a way for the ordinary - everyday person - to express his or her
opinion - in such a unique way - Anderson. But I want to say that it
has been a Real Privilege to be here - among such fine People. People
who are expressing how they feel - but not causing trouble - like it
used to be. Things are different now - don't ya think - Anderson?
CNN: Yes - stidh. Indeed I do. Thank you for taking time to talk
stidh: You are very welcome - Anderson. And may I say that it is my
honor to be speaking with YOU - Anderson Cooper. I am a huge fan of
CNN: Why thank you - Sue. And now back to you in the studio - Wolf.
well - that's how it woulda gone - if I had been there in Florida at
that Really Cool Protest...
