The 44thpresident is Barack Obama II.

 

President Obama’s half-brother told an Israeli newspaperthat when he first met Barack, he was struck by his sibling’s rejection ofWestern culture.

“I remember that my impression at the first meeting wasthat Barack thought that I was too white, and I thought that he was too black,”Mark Okoth Obama Ndesandjo told Maariv. “He was an American citizen on a journey insearch of his African roots, while I was a resident of Kenya seeking to findhis white roots.”

“I remember that when I spoke with him about the heroesof Western culture he rolled his eyes impatiently. My feeling was that, here isan American who in many ways is trying to be a local Kenyan youth. This issomething I tried to flee my entire life,” Ndesandjo said of the brothers’first meeting in Kenya, which Obama described in his 1995 best-selling memoir,“Dreams From My Father.”

On March 5, 1968, Ray underwent a facial reconstruction (rhinoplasty),performed by Dr. Russell Hadley.[10]On March 18, 1968, Ray left Los Angeles and began a cross-country drive to Atlanta,Georgia.[11]

Arriving in Atlanta on March 24, 1968, Ray checked into a rooming house.[12]He eventually bought a map of the city. FBI agentslater found this map when they searched the room in which he was staying inAtlanta. On the map, the locations of the church and residence of Martin LutherKing Jr. were allegedly circled.[13]However, according to Dr. William Pepper, "TheAtlanta map is nowhere related to Dr. King's residence. It is three oblongcircles that covered general areas."[14]

Ray was soon on the road again, and drove his Mustang to Birmingham, Alabama. There, onMarch 30, 1968, he bought a RemingtonGamemaster 760 .30-06-caliberrifle and a box of 20 cartridges from the Aeromarine Supply Company. He alsobought a Redfield 2x7 scope, which he had mounted tothe rifle. He told the store clerks that he was going on a hunting trip withhis brother. Ray had continued using the Galt aliasafter his stint in Mexico, but when he made this purchase, he gave his name asHarvey Lowmeyer.[15]

After buying the rifle and accessories, Ray drove back to Atlanta. An avidnewspaper reader, Ray passed his time reading the Atlanta Constitution. Thepaper reported King's planned return trip to Memphis,Tennessee,which was scheduled for April 1, 1968. On April 2, 1968, Ray packed a bag anddrove to Memphis

For many it is hard to understandthe extreme outpouring of anger and pain demonstrated on the streets ofFerguson in the wake of the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Questions or statements I heard frommy white family and friends included:

What is all of this about, really?
Black people kill black people all the time and no one riots.
Why is everyone so upset over this man? They didn't even know him.
It is not like this happens every day -- what's the big deal? We haven't heardall of the story yet -- what if it turns out that he (Brown) really was in thewrong?
I agree the police used excessive force, but why not just wait for the systemto work?


As a mother of a black man in America I have been in fear for so many years. Inmy son's early school days when his temperament, learning style and behaviorscaused him to be tossed out of class more times than we can count I feared thatone day they'd toss him out for good -- first out of school next into jail. Wewere in a constant fight with the school system. Every day he went to school Ifeared.

He must've been ten or eleven thefirst time he was brought home by a police officer.
His crime? He fit the description of someone who may have been sneaking aroundsome houses in the neighborhood.

He was riding his bike in his ownneighborhood. The police brought him home because they didn't believe that helived in our cul-de-sac; they weren't aware of a new black family on ourstreet. Every time he went outside, I feared.

I wondered then, what would happenwhen he started to drive. We had the discussion with him and his sister aboutwhat to do if the police approached them on the streets. Their stepdad toldthem how he had been detained in the upper class neighborhood where he livedbefore meeting us -- how he was humiliated by being made to sit on the curbuntil one of the white neighbors finally came out and vouched for him.

At the mall I would watch theexpressions on the faces of white folks as the kiddos came down the corridor.Not only did folks grab their bags I saw them duck into a store as the youngfolks passed by. Truth is my children and their friends (and their momma) areloud and demonstrative. We talk with our hands, might spin in circles whilechatting and are subject to falling on the ground while laughing. I've visiblyannoyed folks with all my carrying on but no one has been afraid of me. Butthese little black kids struck terror in the hearts of some of the white folksat the mall. When I finally agreed to dropping them off instead of staying withthem, I cautioned them every time: "Don't scare the white folks." Ileft them at the mall in fear.

My son made it through some roughyears and is now a well-respected community builder and on-the-rise rapper. Idon't even like to call him a rapper given the images it conjures up. One nighthe stopped to help a woman whose accident he witnessed. He was in a button downshirt and tie having just left an event where he raised several thousands ofdollars for his program. His shirt was tucked in, he wore a belt and his pantsdid not sag. Even still he was questioned about his possible participation inthe woman's accident.

Living in a constant state of feartakes its toll on the human spirit. I suppose it is akin to holding a ballunder water -- eventually it is going to pop up. That's what's happening inFerguson and around the country -- people are popping up.

Truth is that we are tired of livingin fear while the rest of America lives in denial or justification. We aretired of worrying about the safety and well-being of our sons and daughters. Weare tired of wondering when it will be our son or daughter gunned down withoutaccountability. We are tired of black lives having less perceived value thanwhite lives. We are tired!

There is a sense of collectiveexhaustion.

It isn't just fear of randomly beingkilled by authorities that set Ferguson ablaze -- the exhaustion runs deeper.

It was explained to me that thebusinesses targeted for destruction are all (primarily) owned by foreigners whoreceive tax breaks for opening businesses while black folk in the community notonly are denied help, but have to jump through so many hoops thatentrepreneurship is a distant dream. People are tired of economic oppression.

The young folks have expressed theirexhaustion with going to schools that look like prisons, and lack realpreparation for life. One young man I talked to shared how he moved to the areain high school to live with his dad. The high school course work he had to takewas the same information he had in eighth grade in his former school. Heeventually dropped out and took the GED test. People are tired of educationaloppression.

Driving some young adults throughtheir neighborhood adjacent to Ferguson, I saw the signs of exhaustion (orfatigue) and discouragement. As many houses are caving in as there arestanding. Too many vacant lots are overgrown with weeds while the closest parkis too far for children to access. Children play in the streets as there isnowhere safer for them to play. Vacant, used-to-be businesses stand as areminder of the abandonment the community has experienced. People are tired ofenvironmental oppression.

There is also a collectiveexhaustion with the religious community. While there are a plethora ofchurches, the community lies in waste. Where are the voices demanding justicebefore a Mike Brown murder? Folks have complained forever about the harassmentthey experience by law enforcement officers. Has nobody heard? Nobody believed?Nobody cared? People were hungry before the riots. People were oppressed beforethe riots. People are tired of religious exploitation.

The Ferguson crisis was far deeperthan the murder of Mike Brown. We are tired. We are tired of being tired. Weare beyond tired and we aren't going to keep taking it.

There was a response from thecommunity -- not just the Ferguson community, but the collectively exhaustedcommunity. Black folks, white folks, old folks, young folks, professional andunemployed folks, gangsters and church folks were all present to express ourcollective exhaustion.

Until there is change at a systemiclevel that forces justice on every level, I believe that America will seeFerguson happen again and again.

That's what's going on here.

Questions or statements I heard from my white family andfriends included:

 

 

 

Being white is not all it is cracked up to be-- at least not for those who are really aware. There's no escaping the uglyhistory of those who look like me, those who have historically terrorized anddehumanized some part of nearly every culture including our own. In the past Icarried much shame and embarrassment about being white.

 

When Michael Brown was murdered Ifound myself sobbing while unconsciously rubbing my skin until it started tohurt. Was I trying to rub away my whiteness?

As a young white girl, I was raisedin a very prejudiced environment. My grandmother tried very hard to teach methat being white was better than anyone else -- especially black. Lessons camethrough getting the hell beat out of me for having my black friends discovered.Another time I was whipped until I bled for declaring that Jesus was black.After all, he hid in Egypt.

When I first heard the term"white privilege," I didn't think it applied to me; I certainly didnot feel any sense of privilege. I was from a poor home filled with abuse andbrokenness. Life had been hard. As the mother of black children I feared dailyfor their safety as they left home for school, work or play.

As I learned more, I understoodwhite privilege as a social benefit of which I am, by default, a recipient justbecause I'm white.

I have never been as aware of myprivilege as I was on the volatile streets of Ferguson.
Being out there was not an option for me; the Spirit pulled me as the moonpulls the tide. As I stood in the road interceding -- praying God's peace,pleading with our sons to back-off and not charge the police -- I never oncethought about being white, not once.

Determined that no young personwould be left behind, I stayed in the streets as the police advanced on us --begging the few remaining young men "C'mon, let's go now baby, let'sgo." I stayed long past the police's final warnings to "disperseimmediately." I stayed until the last young man ran past me right afterwhich I was shot in the stomach with a wooden bullet.

Immediately I was stunned -- beingshot and tear gassed shocked me. I couldn't believe that this madness happensfor real! I was dumbfounded that this type of force was even legal.

But what really shocked me wasrealizing that I really did not expect to be injured. I was never reallyafraid. I certainly was not afraid of the young folks. It was very painful tosee young folks ready to charge the police -- "What they gonna do, killus? They already doing that." It was painful, not at all frightening.

Obviously, I realized, I wasn'tafraid of the police either. The reality that I didn't have to think aboutfearing the police was a result of white privilege -- the privilege I don'tclaim but I yet have, just because I'm white.

My black colleagues, friends andfellow foot soldiers didn't have the luxury of not considering danger; theyconsidered the danger and acted anyway.

They were brave.

I have been called brave forstanding on the streets. Bravery is reserved for those who stood knowing therewas danger.

Maybe I can be called bold, but notbrave.

Assumed white privilege on thestreets was the expectation for safety -- the expectation that everything willbe okay -- just because. The evidence of white privilege isn't so much thethought, "I'll be safe just because" but more so the fact thatit never occurred to me to think about my safety.

A young lady took a picture of mywound that went viral. Media outlets were calling to talk about what happenedto me. I wasn't the only one who was shot. Why weren't we talking about themilitarized police or the murder of Michael Brown? I was irritated andinitially refused all interviews.

When my spirit and brain connected,I had an "ah-ha!" moment: I was white, woman and a pastor. Privilege.I wasn't the only one who had been shot: I was the only woman who was a pastor,who was also white, who had also been shot. Privilege. Three places ofprivilege.

The young lady posted the picture toshow what they were doing to us. The young folks understood it. They said itlike this, "If they'll shoot the white pastor you know they'll get mya*&."

The media picked it up and ran withit because of my places of privilege -- white, woman, clergy -- more so thanbecause the act of militarized police was outrageous.

As I spent more time on the streetsI became more aware of the privilege given, expected, and willingly received.

On two occasions there was a groupof young white folks who didn't think that they had to "keep walking"like everyone else. After all "We don't live here," they told me.

The reporters, who were nearly allwhite, were allowed to walk in the streets when the protestors, who wereprimarily black, were twice arrested for walking with media, that I am aware.

Groups of white agitators, withtheir angry words and fists and "ready-to-die" spirits, were able topresent themselves as sympathizers throwing off police as they threw bottles atpolice without being noticed by them. Couldn't be the white folks, now couldit?

On the Sunday night ambush, as weran in terror on the streets, the young folks who ran by me one after anothersaid, "Pastor, tell them the truth; they'll listen to you. You've got totell them the truth. Tell them the real story, Pastor. Don't let them get away withthis."

Did they trust me to tell the storybecause I am a pastor? Because I had been hanging tough with them? Or, becausethey knew I'd have access to those who would listen?

The reality is that there will bepeople who will hear me because I am white. There will be those who believe thestories of terror because I am white. There will be those who feel a deepersense of outrage about the actions of the militarized police just because .

White privilege exists. It is anirrefutable social-issue imposed upon white people by white people. It divideswhites from non-whites and it divides whites who embrace privilege from thosewho snub privilege.

Would the police have allowed me tostand between them and the people that Wednesday night had I not been white?

On Thursday I joined with five youngmen who wore bandanas as a form of protest and who chose to protest one ofprotest marches. Could a black clergy person have marched with these young menand worn the bandana and been safe from police action? To many I just lookedsilly. How would my black colleagues have looked to the police and media? Thepolice obviously concluded that I was not a threat -- just because.

In nearly all of my familial andsocial settings I am the only white person yet I never feel white. On thestreets of Ferguson I not only felt white, I had a responsibility toacknowledge that my whiteness carried privilege.

With privilege comes responsibility.

On the street I was responsible foracting cautiously and prayerfully making sure that I did not carelessly mistakemy sense of acting in faith for my privilege acting or mistake God's favor forthat of man.

I am responsible for using my voiceto speak expose injustices and bring truth to light even and especially when todo so puts my privileged standing in jeopardy. I am responsible for telling thestories of injustice and pain and truth to people who will hear it from me inthe places where I've been given voice.

I used to say, "It's not myfault that I'm white." One day I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit askme, "Whose fault is it?" I have long believed that before I wasformed in my mother's womb God knew me and had a plan for my life (Jeremiah1:5). Although being white is neither a fault nor a privilege in terms of God'sdesign, it is a reality that must be reckoned with in this human world.

Whites do not choose to be givenprivilege; whether it is wanted or not, it is present. We choose what we dowith the privilege given and we can choose to break the cycle of being aprivilege giver.

We must be able to identify andacknowledge privilege when it is given. We must also know how and when to bothdeny it and utilize it.

As a white-woman-pastor I was a PRnightmare for the establishment and a goldmine for the media. I refused toexploit the situation which is why there are only two pictures of my wound: onethat was taken by the young lady and one by the Alderman. Privilege denied.

For the white groups -- who thoughtthey didn't have to move -- I made up a cadence that I chanted next to themuntil they started walking: "No white privilege on the street, Everybodymove your feet." Privilege exposed and rejected.

I intentionally followed the same rules that everyone else had to follow, evenwhen I felt like my feet were about to crumble apart with every painful step.Likely I could have rested and walked in the streets without much fuss from thepolice. Privilege denied.

Regarding the ambush and theallegations that we were storming the police, I told several media outlets,"They are lying." I told the real story, but this small quote is allthat was printed in their stories. At least it was said. Privilege used.

The young men would have worn theirbandanas and protested the protest march without me. With me folks didn't messwith them. I looked silly and pissed off people. Privilege used.

I don't ask to be treateddifferently because I am white. I don't expect to be treated differentlybecause I am white. I will not treat others differently because they are white.

I will deny privilege when it isself-benefiting and I will attempt to skillfully use it when it can be a weaponin the fight for justice. And I will constantly and deeply seek God for thewisdom to know the difference.

One thing I am, for sure, wiseenough to know is that it was neither my whiteness nor my two-fingers of peacethat held the pain-filled protestors from crossing the police line -- time andagain since that first night it has been the power of love and life engulfingGod's people. God uses whomever God chooses in spite of notjustbecause of.

Barabbas orJesus Barabbas (a Hellenization of the Aramaic bar abba בר אבא, literally "son of the father" or"Jesus, son of the Father" respectively) is a figure in the accountsof the Passionof Christ, in whichhe is the insurrectionary whom Pontius Pilate freed at the Passover feast in Jerusalem, instead of Jesus.

 

According tothe four canonical gospels and the non-canonical Gospel of Peter there was a prevailing Passovercustom in Jerusalem that allowed or required Pilate, the praefectus or governor of Judea, to commute one prisoner's deathsentence by popular acclaim, and the "crowd" (ochlos), "the Jews"and "the multitude" in some sources, were offered a choice of whetherto have either Barabbas or Jesus released from Roman custody. According to the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew,[1] Mark,[2] and Luke,[3] and the accounts in John[4] and the Gospel of Peter, the crowd chose Barabbas to bereleased and Jesus of Nazareth to be crucified. Pilate is portrayed asreluctantly yielding to the insistence of the crowd. A passage found only inthe Gospel of Matthew has the crowd saying, "Let his blood be upon us andupon our children."

 

The story ofBarabbas has special social significance because it has historically been usedto lay the blame for the crucifixionof Jesus on theJews, and to justify antisemitism—an interpretation, known as Jewish deicide, dismissed by Pope Benedict XVI in his 2011 book Jesusof Nazareth, in whichhe changes the translation of "ochlos" in Matthew to mean the"crowd", rather than to mean the Jewish people.

Brad Smith, a student at San Diego State University and a tenant ofBoulevard 63 Apartments, said apartment complex managers told him to remove theAmerican flag he was displaying on his apartment's balcony because it"could offend foreign people."

Smith said that when he asked management about the notice he receivedordering him to remove the flag, they reportedly told him "it was forpolitical reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here,foreign exchange students."

ABC News' investigationrevealed that the rules of Smith's lease prohibit signs or other personalproperty from being kept outside the premises, and that management determineswhat is "permissible and acceptable."

But Smith asserts this is not the explanation he was given.

"This was never brought to my attention," Smith said. "I'vehad friends and family fight to defend that flag."

The apartment complex called the incident a "misunderstanding,"and has since amended its rules to permit the display of state and countryflags.

CHICAGO (AP) — Four men have beencharged in the death of a 9-year-old boy who was gunned down in a backyardafter becoming upset with his mother and running from his Chicago home, PoliceSuperintendent Garry McCarthy said Friday. Derrick Allmon, 19, Jabari Williams,22, and Michael D. Baker, 19, all face first-degree murder charges in the deathof Antonio Smith, McCarthy said. Police didn't immediately release the name ofthe fourth suspect. Allmon, Williams and Baker were allegedly driving aroundlooking for rival gang members on Aug. 20. Allmon was handed a gun by Williamsand ordered to shoot two men they came across, McCarthy said. "As Allmonapproached his intended targets on foot, he came across Antonio Smith in a rearyard of a residence,'" McCarthy said. "Believing that Antonio Smithwas yelling a warning to his intended victims, Allmon shot Antonio Smithmultiple times, wounding him fatally." The boy was shot at least fourtimes — killed not far from where he lived in the Grand Crossing neighborhoodon Chicago's South Side. Shortly after the shooting, the boy's mother, BrandiMurry, said her son left home after she answered "no" when he askedfor a cupcake. About an hour later, he was being taken to a hospital withgunshots to the chest.

NEW ORLEANS, Sept 8 (Reuters) - Former New Orleans MayorRay Nagin was due to report to federal prison on Monday to begin serving a10-year sentence for corruption during the years when the city was strugglingto recover from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina. Nagin, aDemocrat, was thrust into the national spotlight in 2005, when Katrinaoverwhelmed levees and flooded 80 percent of New Orleans, killing 1,500 peopleand causing some $80 billion in damage. He is due to serve his time at afederal prison in Texarkana, Texas, according to television station WDSU.Nagin, 58, plans to appeal his conviction. He has said in court filings that heis nearly penniless, and has been granted a court-appointed lawyer. The onetimecable company executive who served as New Orleans' mayor from 2002-2010 wasconvicted on 20 criminal counts including bribery, conspiracy and moneylaundering, all tied to payments he received for granting city contracts.Seeking re-election in 2006, Nagin, a black politician who had enjoyed strongsupport from both black and white voters, seemed to adopt a racially divisive tone,urging residents to rebuild a "chocolate New Orleans," referring toits majority black population. Under federal sentencing rules, Nagin wouldserve about 8-1/2 years in prison with good behavior. (Reporting by JonathanKaminsky. Editing by Chris Micahud ad Simon Cameron-Moore)

According toeconomist Walter Williams, “[f]rom 1900 to 1954, blacks were more active thanwhites in the labor market. Until about 1960, black male labor forceparticipation in every age group was equal to or greater than that of whites …As early as 1900, the duration of black unemployment was 15 percent shorterthan that of whites; today it’s about 30 percent longer.” According toeconomist Thomas Sowell, “[t]he poverty rate among black families fell from 87percent in 1940 to 47 percent in 1960, during an era of virtually no majorcivil rights legislation or anti-poverty programs … In various skilled trades,the incomes of blacks relative to whites more than doubled between 1936 and1959.” Most important, back in Gantt’s day, his and Clara’s devotion to eachother was the norm. In fact, from 1890 to 1940, the black marriagerate was slightly higher than that of whites.

There waslittle violence after the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's killer last July. Peaceprevailed when at least four other unarmed black males were killed by police inrecent months, from New York to Los Angeles. Then Michael Brown was gunned downin Ferguson, Missouri. And waves of rioting have convulsed the St. Louis suburbfor more than 10 days. Why Ferguson? The response to Brown's death turnedviolent because of a convergence of factors, observers say, including the starknature of the killing in broad daylight, an aggressive police response toprotests, a mainly black city being run by white officials — and the cumulativeeffect of killing after killing after killing of unarmed black males."People are tired of it," said Kevin Powell, president of the BKNation advocacy group, who organized peaceful protests after the Floridaneighborhood watchman George Zimmerman was found innocent in Martin's killing.Powell is headed to Ferguson as an organizer and peace activist after thekilling of Brown, the unarmed black 18-year-old who was shot by white policeofficer Darren Wilson. Battles have raged in Ferguson almost nightly, withstores looted, police firing tear gas and rubber bullets, people tossingMolotov cocktails, and dozens of arrests. When police first confrontedprotesters with armored military vehicles, assault weapons and dogs, itreminded Powell of images from the 1960s civil rights movement. "Just a recklessdisregard for the safety of the community they're supposed to beprotecting," he said. "They just don't care. It feels like they don'tcare at all." "Zimmerman was one person. This is an entire policeforce. It feels like the whole system doesn't care." It is not all thatunusual for an unarmed black person to be killed by police. There are noreliable national statistics on people of any race killed by police, butanecdotal reports count significant numbers. One study, relying on Internet searchesof media reports, found 18 unarmed black people killed by police and securitypersonnel in the first three months of 2012, including Trayvon Martin.

On July 17,Eric Garner was killed by a chokehold after an arrest for illegally selling loosecigarettes in New York City. On Aug. 5, John Crawford III was killed whilehandling a toy gun in a Wal-Mart outside Dayton, Ohio. On Aug. 11, Ezell Ford,a mentally disabled man, was shot dead in South Los Angeles. The circumstancesof each case are different, of course, and investigations continue. Brown waskilled Aug. 9. The riots erupted Aug. 10, when more than two dozen businesseswere damaged and looted. Some of the rioters, according to media reports, arehardened, violent young men who speak of seeking "justice," which isoften confused with revenge. Some are coming to Ferguson from out of town,whether to show solidarity or fight the crackdown, or possibly drawn to themedia spectacle. Police have reported arrests of people from New York and California."It feels like a turning point," said Blair L.M. Kelley, a historyprofessor at North Carolina State University. "I think because so manyblack men die at the hands of the state." Kelley and Powell both said thatthe nature of Brown's killing fueled anger: He was shot at least six times inbroad daylight, in the middle of the street, in his own housing complex. Thenhis body lay in the street for hours, uncovered, in a pool of blood, beforebeing taken away. "There were more than 100 people there looking at hisbody," Kelley said. She mentioned the killings of Jonathan Ferrell, anunarmed black man who was shot by a white officer after crashing his car inCharlotte, North Carolina, last September, and the black woman, RenishaMcBride, who crashed her car in Detroit, went to a nearby house, and was shotdead through the front door. "Those happened at nighttime, away from thepublic gaze," Kelley said. "To leave Brown in the street like that,it was a disregard they could feel and taste and see." The last riots overan unarmed black death were in 2009, when Oscar Grant was killed by a whiteofficer while lying face down on a train platform in Oakland, California.Hundreds of businesses were damaged, cars were overturned and smashed, and morethan 100 people were arrested. Similar circumstances led to unrest inCincinnati in 2001 and in St. Petersburg, Florida, in 1996. One of America'sworst race riots ever was in 1992 in Los Angeles, after the acquittal of fourwhite officers who beat the black motorist Rodney King. And people in manycities rioted against racial oppression during the turmoil of the 1960s."Riots erupt when all other options have been closed," said CathySchneider, an American University professor who studies race riots. "Whenpeople really feel vulnerable in the face of police violence and localauthorities are totally impervious to community demands." Ferguson is 67percent black; the mayor, city council, school board and police force arealmost all white. Schneider said that the riots of the 1960s gave rise toindividuals and groups who could effectively negotiate tensions with police.That infrastructure may not exist in Ferguson, where the population has rapidlychanged due to white flight, she said. Local officials promised Tuesday to makechanges and be more receptive to community concerns. Powell sees Michael Brownas a bookend of sorts to Trayvon Martin. "Many of us who were involved inTrayvon thought we could get through this summer without anotherincident," he said. "Sad to say, this relit another fire."

Leading upto Holder's visit, commenters noted that he'd have to juggle his reputation forbeing frank on race with the delicate nature of an ongoing investigation.During his comments, Holder focused on the work the Civil Rights Division andthe need for action, not just dialogue, in Ferguson. On the subject of therelationship between communities and law enforcement, he recounted his ownexperiences with racial profiling:

 

We have seena great deal of progress over the years. But we also see problems and theseproblems stem from mistrust and mutual suspicion ...  I can rememberbeing stopped on the New Jersey turnpike on two occasions and accused ofspeeding. Pulled over.... 'Let me search your car'... Go through the trunk ofmy car, look under the seats and all this kind of stuff. I remember howhumiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me.

 

Compare thatto the president's less personal commentary from Monday:

 

In too many communities, too manyyoung men of color are left behind and seen only as objects of fear. Andthrough initiatives like My Brother’s Keeper, I’m personally committed tochanging both perception and reality. 

 

This is whatpeople expected from Holder. Author and Georgetown professor MichaelEric Dyson explained it to The New York Times this way: Obama's speech on Monday wasa “stunning epic failure” but Holder is “an up and down race man whounderstands the moral consequences of the law on the lives of blackpeople.” A June Politico profile summed it up moresuccinctly: "Holder has been willing to say the things Obama couldn’t orwouldn’t say about race."

Luckily forSouth Africa the SPI didn’t count sexual aggression among their safety measuresthis year (estimates say 500,000 women are raped annually here by one in everyfour men — the highest rate of sexual violence the world). Regardless, with 50murders happening daily, it’s no surprise violent crime and thievery are two ofthe most cited reasons for emigration out of South Africa’s borders. In 2007, amajor South African insurance company discontinued policies on Volkswagen CitiGolfs simply because they were stolen too often; so while you might get awaywith ignoring the occasional stop sign in your hometown, if you find yourselfat the stop sign in a South African city you should probably keep driving.

Protestserupted in Ferguson as soon as news of Brown's death began to spread. A crowdbegan to gather around the scene of the shooting almost immediately, whileBrown's body was still lying in the road. His body would remain there for several hours. (Ferguson Police Chief Jacksonlater said that he was "uncomfortable" with the amount of time thatBrown's body had been left on the ground.) After the demonstration at the scenedispersed, a smaller group of approximately 100 people gathered outsideFerguson police headquarters and continued to protest. Non-violent protestscontinued on Sunday, but tensions began to rise between the demonstrators andthe police, who had deployed with military equipment and body armor. One video, from CNN, showed an officershouting at protesters to "bring it, you fucking animals! Bring it!" Theprotests briefly erupted into violence on the night of Sunday, August 10, whena group of people looted and burned a QuikTrip convenience store. A SWAT teamused tear gas to disperse the looters, and at least 32 people were arrested.Protesters remained largely non-violent during the demonstrations from Mondayto Thursday, but on Friday night there was more looting. A group of communityleaders organized non-violent protesters toprotect the businesses being targeted, and they eventually managed to defusethe situation, and the looters dispersed by about 4am.

Brown'sfriend Dorian Johnson, who was with him when the shooting occurred, gave this account to MSNBC: Johnson said that he andBrown had been walking in the middle of the street when a police officerapproached and told them to use the sidewalk. They complied, and the officerbegan to drive away, but then threw his car into reverse and came backalongside the teens, nearly hitting them. Johnson heard Wilson say somethinglike "What'd you say?" before trying to open his car door, slammingit into Brown. Then the officer reached out and grabbed Brown by the neck withhis left hand. The two men struggled briefly, and then Wilson, still in hiscar, shot Brown once. Johnson said that he and Brown both attempted to flee,but Brown was shot a second time. After the second shot, Brown turned aroundand surrendered, putting his hands in the air and saying, "I don't have agun. Stop shooting!" Johnson said that Wilson then approached Brown andfired several more shots, killing him.

Fultonurged the Brown family to ignore the theories about their son's killing:

 

Facts, myths, and flat out liesare already out there in Michael’s case. Theories, regardless of howridiculous, are being pondered by the pundits. My advice is to surroundyourselves with proven and trusted support. Through it all, I never let go ofmy faith, my family, or my friends. Long after the overwhelming media attentionis gone, you will need those three entities to find your ‘new normal.’ Honoryour son and his life, not the circumstances of his alleged transgressions. Ihave always said that Trayvon was not perfect. But no one will ever convince methat my son deserved to be stalked and murdered. No one can convince you thatMichael deserved to be executed. now this: neither of their lives shall be invain. The galvanizations of our communities must be continued beyond thetragedies. While we fight injustice, we will also hold ourselves to anappropriate level of intelligent advocacy. If they refuse to hear us, we willmake them feel us. Some will mistake that last statement as being negativelyprovocative. But feeling us means feeling our pain; imagining our plight asparents of slain children. We will no longer be ignored. We will bond, continueour fights for justice, and make them remember our children in an appropriatelight.
