A Post No Indictment Article Reader for 11/25/14

I had work to do today for school but my activist side took over today and I have spent the day consuming reports and articles on what happened last night. In order for us to move forward we need to reevaluate what really to try to figure out how to attack this ever evolving structural racism. Some of these are older but they are still relevant to what happened with the shooting of Mike Brown and the no indictment decision.
