I also have a featured story on Alternet (with a second one that is the lede story on the site
The Michael Brown-Darren Wilson saga becomes even more absurd as a tale of corruption, fantastical white racism, conflicts of interest, and now a planted witness who was on a "spirit walk" of sorts to overcome his hatred of "niggers" and just happened to be at the scene and subsequently described Brown as attacking the thug cop Wilson. You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried. Unbelievable.
If these events took place in another country the American press would have a field day; thankfully, there are some folks who are reversing the gaze in order to do some truth telling about America's habitual miscarriages of justice when police and other white identified vigilantes kill black people.
As is my habit, I would like to share a recent essay by friend of WARN, Mr. Werner Herzog's Bear.
Over at his site Notes From the Ironbound--which folks should be reading and sharing as it is very sharp and smart; truly, an under-appreciated gem)--Werner penned a very insightful and honest essay about his feelings about Ferguson and the historical amnesia of too many white Americans.
Once again, Werner is on point.
