On the Ferguson uprising:

They were so busy containing protesters through tear gas that they weren’t really listening to what the community had to say.

On policing:

I just don’t understand how you can go through all this training as a cop, how to take down people — there are different things you use for the corresponding situation, say a tazer, but automatically use a firearm. That just doesn’t make sense to me.

On politics:

Looking at politics we see the systemic lack of power black people have and even built under a white structure.  It still takes time.

Ferguson Is…Everywhere
