The Grand Jury made their decision and while it might not be a popular one what took place afterwards is not the answer. In fact it is just validating the stereo type situation in which blacks are viewed. There were no winners last night and there was nothing gained. A young man lost his life and the verdict did not seem like justice. I understand the anger and frustration but violence is not the answer.

The people of Ferguson must move forward. Michael Brown is dead and burning down Ferguson will not bring him back. Instead of tearing down let’s build something in the memory of this young man. Do not create  situations that will give police officers a reason to kill again. As last night clearly shows in this war they will win.

Instead of fighting let us educate our young men. Let the memory of Michael Brown serve as a catalyst for change. Let them strive for the day when Ferguson Police Department instead of having fifty white officer to three blacks will have and equal amount of blacks and whites. Let us strive for the day when a man’s life is important irrespective of his skin color.
