It was exactly one year ago today that Ferguson, Mo., teen Michael Brown died of gunshot wounds following a run-in with Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Wilson has since resigned from the force and gone into hiding.
To mark the anniversary of the event, race huckster Al Sharpton, a man who cynically makes a living stoking outrage over incidents like this by insisting they all reflect systemic racism, has a piece in New York’s Daily News, demanding an end to “excessive police force and brutality” against people of color.
Across the country, in Fegruson, locals are commemorating the shooting with (what else?) a pig roast. Get it?
