"In many ways Ferguson meets the prototypical structure of a southern plantation"
Look, I am not going to pretend that this is some kind of new development, but can anyone seriously say that black people don't have every right to be terrified of letting their kids out of their sight? When their children can be murdered with absolute impunity by our law enforcement officers, that sends a message that cannot be understood by non-black people. It cannot be understood because it isn't felt.Read for yourself what Darren Wilson told the grand jury. It reads just like the right wing talking points you've been reading in the comment section on this blog.
I suspect that even our president, our First Lady, and our Attorney General are terrified.
Why wouldn't they be?
No indictment of Darren Wilson means the system has failed us again, and President Obama wants us to remain calm?
RedEye over and out..... for now.
