Micheal Brown was a thug, why are all those people in Ferguson?
I had been researching to simplify, and make the issue more approachable. Avoiding statistics and annectdotes. This message wisely addresses the core of the issue that has people so fiecely protesting. Think about the statement above as you watch the video at the link below.
“When this woman held up her protest sign at a vigil in Washington, D.C., she had no idea she would become a symbol of history.”
“It’s not about whether or not the shooter is a racist. It’s about how poor black boys are treated as problems well before we’re treated as people.”
– Dr. Javon Brown
“I cannot believe I still have to protest the shit!!!”
