After the grand jury decision in Ferguson and the sometimes-violent aftermath, I wrote a piece for Rare explaining--but not excusing--why people reacted the way they did. It's not very long, but might be summed up by a friend's comment on Facebook, "Well what did you expect to happen when you treated people like niggers?"
My piece is here. If I get a chance, I'll share a roundup of some of the most poignant writing on the aftermath.
I hope you have/had a wonderful Thanksgiving, or Thursday, if you don't happen to live in America.
