A police officer in Ferguson, Missouri shot a killed Michael Brown a little over a week ago. The community has been protesting since then.
No one has any idea why the police are tossing their shit. I mean, other than institutional racism.
A lot of people still don’t know about this because the mainstream media in America have done a really poor job of covering it. Check out social media to stay up to date.

Important updates from Ferguson, Tuesday afternoon. August 19th.
Less than 3 miles from where Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, another young black man was gunned down by police this afternoon in North St. Louis.
Journalists on twitter are sharing info on where to buy gas masks.
Everyone needs to be following Elon James White! His coverage of Ferguson has been TOO REAL!!
This is the first time that Amnesty International has sent a team to observe human rights abuses within America.
It’s a sad and frustrating story, but one that NEEDS to be told. It speaks to so many issues, namely institutional racism.
Daytime in Ferguson is a lot more peaceful. More celebratory, more community-orientated.
At night, the police feel they can do whatever they want. Remember, the police are the ones instigating and escalating violence here.
I cover both times of day, but there’s just more to cover at night.
Yes, please do share!
Social media has been the best source of info from the beginning and continues to be. Though, yeah, seems pretty silent on Facebook.
I’m glad you’re talking to people about it! Keep it up!
