I love when journalist speak their mind as opposed to feeding us what the publishers want us to read. Christine Flowers never pulls any punches and doesn’t mind mixing it up on the topic of race relations in America.
I think a big part of the race relation divide in America is that people don’t talk about race enough with each other, especially between the races. As a black blogger committed to a black community, I bring up race often. I figure someone has to speak on our behalf, why not me (us).
I don’t totally agree with all of Ms. Flowers statements regarding the Faux Controversy particularly her claims of this being a media-driven mess. I think the folks in Ferguson would have taken to the streets even if TV and social media wasn’t invented yet.
