Ferguson Highlights White Racist Police Culture

50 of 53 police officers in Ferguson are white and the town is 67% African American! That says it all! In the USA it used to be a sign of bad policing to shoot or kill an unarmed person.

The tragic events unfolding in Ferguson Missouri really highlight something our society is becoming increasingly aware of...there is a Conservative Racist White Male culture in our nation's police forces from Boston to LA to Seattle.
Thank God, the city I live near has a high enough percentage of African American citizens to get people of color into high office and this kind of thing almost never happens in Atlanta. But read this story from USA Today...
"Nearly two times a week in the United States, a white police officer killed a black person during a seven-year period ending in 2012, according to the most recent accounts of justifiable homicide reported to the FBI."
They call me...'the Dixie Dove'
