Michael Brown: The system worked

police-shooting-brown-profile.jpeg2-620x412

What is happening now to our young African-American men is reminiscent of the lynchings of young African-American males in the south. People slain with no remorse and no justice.

The term “achievement gap” doesn’t describe or address the difference in our society between minorities and the privileged.

If you want to see real change with low-income and minority children, you have to face the whole problem. Education reform, as it is called, is just putting a pretty, and expensive, bandage on a tumor. The only people who “win” are the ones who make the most money but at the cost of our children’s futures.

    Good for Dora Taylor. This needs to be said. Watching the non-verdict right now. There should have been a trial. We all know that and we know why that trial will not take place. Shame on us/USA
