Three weeks ago most people never heard of Ferguson. Now the world is talking about the town and its leadership. yesterday the mayor of the town was asked if there was a racial divide in Ferguson. His answer was no. From his vantage point everything is fine, but I bet his vantage point does not include Mike Brown’s neighborhood. Brown lived in the part of the city that is not often exposed to the world. Tourists dare not venture into the neighborhood, but aren’t there neighborhoods like Ferguson in every city? A teenage boy was killed. The facts are in dispute and hopefully the legal system can sort out the details and ferret out the truth, but the cameras are going to soon turn their lights out and move on to the next story and this town will be left to move on. So where do we go from here. There is a racial divide in this country and how you view Ferguson depends on your vantage point. In America all vantage points are not equal.
Is there a racial divide in Ferguson…yes, there is a racial divide in America
