Hot Takes

Governor Nixon will bring in the National Guard in order to pacify the restive province of Ferguson.

"We must use state violence in order to put down peaceful protests of unlawful state violence"- Nixon, probably.

Large numbers of white people (especially) in this country see black people as inherently criminal, as irrationally violent, as a problem to be dealt with. Not as citizens who sometimes have very legitimate grievances.

It's all very depressing.
