The Ferguson Riots and anti-blackness

In fact, the population of Ferguson that lives under the federal poverty line has more than doubled in the last decade, with more than 25% of Ferguson residents today located below that economic indicator. Thus the situation in Ferguson: a town with a substantial Black majority but a white city Mayor; 5 out of the 6 city people serving on city council are white, the city’s police chief is white, and the city’s police force is 94% white, with officials from each of these sectors publicly and repeatedly expressing open disdain for the town’s Black majority after the shooting of Michael Brown.

El autor profundiza en las condiciones de la población negra en Ferguson para explicar el caso del asesinato impune de Michel Brown.
