Oppressive authority

Ferguson, Mo., is becoming fused into our historical encyclopedia with the Boston Massacre, Haymarket, Birmingham, Watts, Chicago, Kent State, Stonewall, L.A., Seattle and recently, Occupy. They all defined an era's systemic social injustices that were further exposed by a reactionary governmental authoritarian response.

Yes, we can elect a black president, but in America there still remain white-dominated local police forces who can and will gun down unarmed men of color, seemingly with impunity. On average each year, there are 400 killings by local police; 96 are black males comprising just 4 percent of the population. On average 40 of those 96 victims are also unarmed, no different than Michael Brown.
