After the looting, many local citizens, black and white, were seen in the streets cleaning up the debris and marching in a display of community unity and determination to repair the reputation of their besmirched city. A local hero, retired Baltimore Ravens icon Ray Lewis, in a fevered appeal on Facebook, declared: "This is not happening in our city! Go home, man! Stay home!" The white Republican governor of Maryland, Larry Hogan, meanwhile called out National Guard troops to help restore order.
