“If you choose, you can look at the dramatic events that have unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri as having nothing to do with economics.

In many ways, you would be right. It’s the tragedy of a young man whose life was cut short in a hail of bullets fired by a police officer, set in the broader context of a centuries-old tragedy of a country that either can’t or won’t find a way to look squarely at the legacy of its history as a slave-owning society. It’s a legacy that endures in a horrifying litany of violence.”

No one know this more that us, yet we look at the same oppressive system to free us.
