Six years since #Ferguson. Since Darren Wilson murdered Michael Brown. Since County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch circumvented the calls for justice. Three years Since the community rose up against injustice and oppression. Six years since Black Lives Matter rose to prominence.
Six years… Josh is serving 8 years. Skeeta “committed suicide”. Basem Masri is dead. Lizz Brown is dead. Darren Seals was assassinated.
Six years since the Democratic Party, nonprofit industrial complex, Black Lives Matter, Deray and a host of other organizations, opportunists and actorvists exploited a community in grief.
What began as the largest uprising since the Civil Rights Era resulted in zero convictions & little change despite a black President.
This is how it all fell apart…
