Dear Black America: A Few Thoughts on Ferguson

I would like to humbly provide a few words of wisdom to the millions of black Americans around the country following the events of Ferguson, Missouri. Please do not get hoodwinked into purchasing a ticket to the movie premiere of “the grand jury decision.” Spoiler alert…at the end of this movie black Americans will not see justice.  There will not be an indictment for either first or second-degree murder. If by some miracle a true bill were issued for a criminal charge, including manslaughter, it would ultimately result in a trial ending in another “movie sequel”…a hung jury or an acquittal. You see, a twelve-member grand jury in Missouri cannot “baptize away” the 400-year original sin of this nation.
