The Ferguson Dilemma
Since George Zimmerman’s acquittal in shooting Trayvon Martin (2013) and Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, MO (2014), America has not been the same. Seemingly overnight, racial tensions we have not seen to this extent, since the Civil Rights Movement, have erupted.
Only a few years prior to the Trayvon Martin incident, the first African American president graced the word’s highest political office. Many believe we were embarking a post-racial society. Some continue to believe that media has exaggerated racial biases.
Regardless of views, there is a needed answer to the explosion of tension we are facing on social media, in our school systems, and on our streets.
