I will let some white men who have manage to get beyond beer and baseball give you all the picture of what is going on.

Douglas Johnson Not only valid but accurate points. The inequality has long been recognized, in these matters, in testing, teacher quality and experience, infrastructure age and condition, neighborhood safety for student transit, etc. The fixes lie in city government, aided by state and federal funding. Unions contribute to some of these problems as well. Our federal govt is spending 20% of its budget on Defense, and just 2% on Education, so the blame can go higher if you contact your Congressional rep. None of these have easy fixes. The antiquated, non-functioning school funding system absolutely does need to be changed, in totem. You are correct, sir. I lived in another state for 20 years. Schools in the burbs had planetariums, pools, closed circuit t.v. systems and green practice fields for sports, while schools ten miles away in the city were crumbling. It’s pathetic, it really is. We continue to pump billions into foreign aid and security the borders of other countries, and neglect our own. Re-elect no one. They have gall to come now and campaign for re-election votes.

I am a white male. I will never know the experience of being a person of color in America. But I can study history from pre-colonial Africa to today. I can read works by Ralph Ellison, Frederick Douglass, Dr. King, etc… I can read of the ideals set down by America’s national founders. I can watch film footage from the 1950s and 1960s and see Bull Connor and George Wallace spit invective. From all of those, perhaps I can at least try to imagine America from an African American’s perspective. When I do, maybe I can begin to identify with a protester in StL who shouts “BLACK LIVES MATTER” or “HANDS UP, DON’T SHOOT!” or a man in SC who even after being shot by a state trooper for doing nothing other than what he was asked to do still addresses that man as “sir.” Maybe then, I might begin to understand that I am not much different from any of them. Not because I am a young black male. But because (like them) I am a human being. I am not an object. I am not a label. I have family, friends, ancestors. I do right and commit wrongs. Perhaps I can recognize that America is a wonderful country, but not blind myself to the horrors and injustices that lurk in its history and its today because of my fears, defensiveness, self-justification or complacency. Perhaps I will begin to be better able to treat my neighbor as I would like to be treated instead of casting them in the role of the “OTHER.” A little empathy might be a good thing.
And the injustice continues.
WHO BROKE THE LAW
TO ALL THAT FOLLOW THE LAW

Constitution or laws of the United States
They followed chief belmar advise when he said we have to train for better media coverage. So this one chief dotson took his advise. So they mixed a little Trayvon credentials mixed with some Mike credentials put the two together and this time they figured they were covered on the media coverage thanks to belmars training but just as the script was the first time so it as this second time there is always that darn video that captures something and now the story has to change. First time chief jackson comes out the box and says he was shot twice. Video comes out now chief jackson turns it over to chief belmar belmar knows what jackson said about him being shot twice so he comes out trying to cover better known as straight up lying saying (He was shot twice but not much more than that. What does that mean we left his body in tact because to me six is much more than twice and to know 10 or 11 shots where kids play for nothing. To me this is what he means by training for media coverage. So now as the cameras roll here goes the story changing as well . It is more than being said .

Same ones did ice cream truck and for those of you who say how sick you are about hearing about this. Think how much we are tired of living it. It is a cancer that grows if not treated.
And the only treatment is JUSTICE= Peace Abundance Happiness for All
Which is a constitutional right.
