I am deeply saddened by the events occurring in Ferguson, Missouri and in many ways it’s reminiscent of the civil rights movement. There are so many things I find appalling about what is going on, but the one that┬ásurprised me the most is the fact that only 3 of 53 policemen/women are African American. In a city that is two-thirds black, that number is another reminder why affirmative action is still needed.
