What’s the best way for white Americans to act in solidarity with black Americans protesting the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson?
I don’t claim any fresh insights on this question. Janee Woods has some good ones.
"We already know that he started out at a time when it was accepted for a Ferguson cop to charge somebody with property damage for bleeding on his uniform."
Police overreach has long targeted black Americans. And in Ferguson, cops who don't seem to know what they're doing have massive firepower with which to do it.
It's difficult to imagine police responding to white protesters the way they've responded to black protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.
