This is ridiculous. Yet I'm not surprised. This system was not made for people of color to thrive and succeed unless they are doing what those who have power want them to do. Michael Brown was shot on the ground and once again another guilty person is basically free. This is not right and I'm so disappointed in our "justice system." This is not justice. It's one big failure. From slavery to Jim Crow to now, the struggle is very real and it's as serious as ever.
This issue in Ferguson definitely speaks to broader issues in our nation. And it does relate to the history of racial discrimination here. And I agree with Obama that we need to separate people who mean to do violent acts from those who simply want their voices heard. Progress will not come by throwing beer bottles, vandalizing cars, or hurting people. The citizens of Ferguson need to work together. .... But as I watched the split screen CNN news, I saw Obama on the left and tear gas on the right. ... Not cool.
I just want to encourage and inspire as many people as I can for Jesus Christ.
