  1. John Moore says:

    If We boycotted the holiday season (Black Friday through the day before MLK day) it would put a major dent in corporate America. We would then resume our spending on MLK day. This would provide hard data that we do matter. An economic shutdown during the holidays would be a peaceful way to show our support for the Browns and all the other families who have lost loved one to police brutality, while showing America that we are not happy about our kids being murdered. A boycott would not only help Ferguson, it would energize Black America. #Economic$hutdown

  2. We were told this week that two wrongs make a right. Michael Brown was only 18 years old. He was no saint. He disobeyed a Police Officer. He struck a Police Officer. He broke the law and he should have been punished, not murdered. He should have been given a chance to reform himself through the proper channels of a justice system we’re supposed to trust. Instead, he was given a death sentence in the middle of the street. Michael will never see a day in court for his wrongs- and neither will Officer Darren Wilson for his. I was compelled to create a portrait of Michael in memoriam at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2014/11/michael-browns-shoes.html to stand in solidarity with the people of Ferguson and families who’ve lost their children to sentences passed by cops in the streets.
