The recent news in Ferguson, MO. could be looked at from the view of John Brown or perhaps Nat Turner. If indeed the Police situation in Ferguson is as bad as it has been portrayed then maybe  John Brown or Nat Turner were correct. If the situation in Ferguson is as bad as put forth by the residents then maybe “spike Lees’ film  “do The Right Thing” was correct. Each instance depicts an aggressive stance against  an authority that mirror’s the ante bellum south and even South Africa in the recent past. If the “white’ citizens of Ferguson knew about the abusive nature of the police and did nothing then perhaps they are as culpable as the authorities. All American citizens have the “right” to freedom of expression under the law but even now that appears to be elusive in some parts of the USA with the citizenry standing on the sidelines and accepting it as long it doesn’t happen to them. There are still some of us who accept the inequity of the “color line” as white privilege until it arrives at their doorstep, then it becomes “those people”. It is possible that at some point all of us will arrive at the same destination without a “Ferguson” and then there will be equality.
