Here are some of the people writing about some of the stuff I wish I had time to write about, for November 25th from 12:57 to 13:12:
- ‘Fanciful and not credible’: CNN legal analyst destroys Darren Wilson’s testimony – CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin ripped St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch for asking Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson “softball” questions during the cross examination of his testimony, which she called “fanciful and not credible.”
- Taking Note: How Darren Wilson Saw Michael Brown in Ferguson – In his testimony, he said the unarmed teenager “looked like he was almost bulking up to run through the shots.”
- Ferguson and American Racism After the Killer of Michael Brown Goes Free – This is a sad day. The grand jury’s decision is yet another sign that all of America’s sons’ lives are not yet valued equally in the eyes of our courts. All of America’s fathers, mothers and children should stay outraged
- Being Black, the Real Indictment in Ferguson and the USA – Now that the grand jury has returned with their decision on the extrajudicial killing of Michael Brown, we should be reminded that even though Darren Wilson was not indicted, Blackness was certainly indicted by the grand jury. Black Americans have been reminded again that their lives are regarded as of little worth. However, the burden of what needs to be done to change this issue is not a Black problem.
- Most White People in America Are Completely Oblivious – Black people have to learn everything about white people just to stay alive. White people just don't get that.
- A Sad Night for America – Many black families woke up this morning knowing that the lives of their children are worth less than the lives of white children in America. The deep distrust of law enforcement in their own communities that so many African Americans feel just got deeper last night — 108 days since the killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown — when the prosecuting attorney announced the decision not to subject the police officer who killed Brown to a trial where all the facts could be publicly known and examined.
