Clay, from St. Louis, who preferred not to give his last name, said he visits Ferguson's protests once or twice a week to "make sure everything's peaceful and show support with the numbers. A lot of people tell me 'you don't look like the kind of guy who might be out here.' A middle class black guy doesn't fit the profile of a protester. I want to show support. Keep it peaceful, don't loot. It goes a lot further if it's a peaceful message."NBC News
