Daily Digest 11/26/14

Some of the most insightful articles I came across today:

Cory Booker wrote a Column about Rodney King in 1992. It’s a Perfect Response to Ferguson, Libby Nelson, Vox

Organizing Fergusons, Keeanga-Tamahtta Taylor, Jacobin 

How Note to Use a Grand Jury, Jeffery Toobin, The New Yorker 

Why Ferguson Burns, The Editors, The Nation

Barack Obama, Ferguson, and Racial Wounds Unhealed, Paul Waldman, The Washington Post

Telling My Son About Ferguson, Michelle Alexander, The New York Times 

By far this is one of the most powerful pieces I have read about Ferguson and how it affects black families. What happens when the police whose job it is to protect and serve view even young black boys as threat?
