Right now, my main takeaway from the many enlightening #Fergusonconversations happening right now is still this combination:
A) Darren Wilson will never have to risk jail for his decision to shoot and kill Michael Brown while Brown was unarmed
B) the lack of an indictment doesn't really shock anyone and
C) I CANNOT IMAGINE those realities being true if Wilson were Black and Brown were White.
The gulf between White and Black America is still vast, systemic and clear. I want to feel confident that #Ferguson will be a catalyst for deep, difficult conversations that lead to long lasting changes.
If that happens, Michael Brown will be this generation's Emmett Till. If not, we will have failed him, ourselves and our children as our parents have failed us.
God bless us. Every one.
