Watch: Racist Cardinals Fans Get Ugly In Clash With Ferguson Protesters
In a video captured by Argus Streaming News, St. Louis Cardinals fans are seen clashing with Ferguson protesters on Monday night outside Busch Stadium. The baseball fans began chanting the name of the white police officer who fatally shot the unarmed black teenager down. Then things turned from bad to worse.

Deadspin has at timeline of the dialogue, which states in part:
At about the 22-second mark, an old white Cardinals fan begins telling the protesters—all of whom appear to be black—that they need to get jobs. He looks right in the camera, proudly, and says, “That’s right! If they’d be working, we wouldn’t have this problem!”
At 8:10 one of the Cardinals fans calls one of the protesters a “crack head” and tells him he needs to go see a dentist.
At about 10:25 a small blonde lady starts yelling at the protesters: “We’re the ones who gave all y’all the freedoms that you have!”
At about 12:14 an older female Cardinals fan begins telling the man holding the camera, who claims he is a former Marine, that she doesn’t believe he is a veteran. The conversation does not go well for her.
At 14:54, the Cardinals fans start in on a very loud “USA! USA! USA!” chant.
At 16:07, another Cardinals fan begins yelling at the protesters, telling them that they need to get jobs.
At 16:43, a female Cardinals fan begins chanting “Africa! Africa! Africa!” at the protesters.
