So people shouldn't speak up and voice they're opinions? What's unpeaceful about that.

What if MLK never protested? Or if the women sat back and never asked for the right to vote? Or if Jesus never confronted the Pharisees?

Perhaps Soul Always is referring to the media coverage of protests, which tends to focus on the unruly and violent.

Kind of like Iraq - you only see the bad stuff....

Perhaps so. The media doesn't give them a good reputation at all.

True, peace doesn't make good headlines. Yet we all say we seek it.

Yeah, media coverage of protests tends to stink. I guess it's too boring just to show the people at the protests listening to the speeches, just holding our signs and minding our own business. They want to show the ones who hassle the cops, etc, etc. It's unfortunate.
