Michael Brown shooting, protests highlight racial divide - CNN.com
There you go, CNN, awesome job!
Keep stirring up that pot, keep that animosity at a fever's pitch, feed the lifeblood that keeps you healthy and relevant.
The Middle East, Ukraine, Israel vs Hamas......not your cup of tea. Stick to what feeds the beast.
Two-thirds of Ferguson's population is black, and yet the mayor is white, and so are five of the six city council members.
The police chief is also white. There are only three African-Americans on the 53-person police force.
How many blacks applied to be officers and were rejected? How many blacks ran for city council or Mayor?
Nobody can seem to answer that, but everyone bitches about the racial makeup. If blacks aren't trying to be police officers, then yes, there won't be many on the force.
A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
Did these white candidates defeat black candidates in elections? Are blacks turned away from positions in the police department? Or....do they just not attempt to get these positions? Whatever the answers, CNN and MSNBC won't vet it out properly. They'll just use it as gas for the fire.
If you think liberals really care about these folks in Ferguson, you're kidding yourselves. Just like beheadings in Iraq don't bother them enough to really do anything substantial about it.
