Default The End of Civil Rights

The fires on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, had barely stopped burning when the Department of Justice released an extraordinary report on the city’s police department. In the findings of the 2015 investigation of the Ferguson Police Department, the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division detailed how a municipality had built its social contract on a slow-rolling racist heist. Activists hoped that the Ferguson report—which was prompted by the 2014 police killing of an unarmed black teenager and found that police conduct had “severely damaged the relationship between African Americans and the Ferguson Police Department”—would not only change the city, but would signal that the United States was finally willing to confront the legacy of white supremacy. The Ferguson City Council reluctantly agreed to a consent decree with the DOJ that would overhaul city policing. Federal courts rejected voter-suppression schemes and reaffirmed affirmative action. Movements from Black Lives Matter to LGBTQ advocacy saw an opportunity to broaden the national civil-rights agenda.

Then Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III took over.

Last I looked, civil rights didn't allow people to start fires in the streets and get away with it before or after the appointment of Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, except for those few years that President Obama was in office.

Those of us who actually have lived in Ferguson Mo can only laugh at you insane description of what actually happened there.

Being ther, seeing it happen in real life and then to watch the experts tell us what "really happened and why" was worse than painful.

Our President, Yes that guy Obama, and his party, used Ferguson to make their progressive racist play. And it cost lives. reputations and property. Not to mention almost irreparable damage to any cause of justice for minorities.

Please describe what good came of taking a just self defense shooting of a known thug and making it about race instead of about the law? If we are a nation of laws, then we should chastise, scold, and arrest those who encourage breaking them with violence.

What good ever comes of that?

racism was already costing lives...just not those you care about.

did you read the article? it's about today and other civil rights as well.

Reading the insane ramblings of a moron will not help fix any problems. You are claiming that our civil rights are at risk yet you defend the actions of the past administration that looked to take them away. You should really learn to look at issues logically instead of emotionally. You might come to different conclusions.

Amazing Liberals who complain who the government is so bad want to give them MORE powers. Then when people want to keep and bear arms we are told that only the Military and Police should have those.
So which is it now Liberals?
You don't like the police and you don't trust the people?

The lies you spoke have nothing to do with my reading of the article.

I was THERE. It was my hometown. I still have family and friends there. Your account of events in Ferguson MO is WRONG.

period!

If i (and many other Christians) boycotted every establishment whose owners had 'PERSONAL views' that strongly disagreed with my own, then I'd practically never shop anywhere.
