A Matter Of Racism

A way must be found to scrub it.

The Grand jury's decision was given on 11/24/14, and since then most of the mainstream media are talking about the violence in Ferguson, the burning and looting, and blaming the crowd that was mainly black or African American for the disturbances.

The authorities are going through the media and sort of fomenting the police officer's wounds, while grappling with Michael Brown, though, he had shot and killed Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, without good reason.

His actions have been deleted from the news; but remembering he pulled the trigger more than 12 times, six of which were aimed at Brown, causing his death.

There and then, that was an overkill, like the punishment outweighing the crime; and also it meant that the officer had made up his mind to kill rather than stopping Brown from attacking him.

Again, the news media are saying that the governor had brought in the National guards and he had failed to deploy them to stop the damage being caused; and the governor is being called upon to resign.

To many, they (media pundits) are putting the cart before the horse, by picking on the crowd instead of dealing with the kernel of the issue, which happened to be racism.

The scenario of Brown's killing, an unarmed African American being shot by a police officer was too common, for it has occurred many times; and each one was put behind everyone after a while. Then like a bolt from the blue, it would happen again to the dismay, but not the surprise of the public.

It is a matter of racism; and the people that should find a way to stop it would be the victims, meaning black people or African Americans.

If they didn't, people like Giuliani and those contributors at TV stations, particularly, Fox News, would always put the blame on them.

What should come out of the whole Ferguson thing should be that Michael Brown was just as human as Darren Wilson, his killer.
