If there is one city that I know a lot about it is Ferguson, Missouri. For many years I taught teachers from the Ferguson school district. As long as I could remember, teachers were complaining about inadequate funding, discrimination against black children, and a total disregard for those whose skin was not white.The shooting of Michael Brown was not a shock, but in true honesty it was a shock that this murder took so long to happen. Here is the reality of St.Louis,Missouri:
1. The business community years ago left the city of St.Louis and relocated to the suburbs to escape blacks. This was told me by a Vice President of Monsanto Corporation who bluntly said, “business people just did not want to be in a city where most people were Negroes.”
2. Corruption has been the norm in St.Louis. On this point there is no discrimination, whites and blacks share in the corruption.
3. There are still suburbs in which black skins are not seen.
So, why any surprise for death and violence in Ferguson?

Each day provides further and further evidence that Republicans are now vying as to who can utter the most outrageous comment in the quest to get Tea Party votes. Mike Huckabee wants the religious right to know that once he becomes president, they can forget about the issue of abortion. He is willing to consider any and all resources that could be employed to end the entire practice of abortion. He was asked if he would employ the National Guard to end the terror of abortion. His response:”We will see. If I become President” he will explore using the 5th Amendment, the 14th Amendment to protect the fetus in the womb.
His comments simply reflect the power now being imposed upon Republican candidates to say something wild in order to get on Fox News tonight. Ironically, the theme of Republicans is that Barack Obama wants more and more power. Mike Huckabee makes him come away as a state right president.
