It’s a sad day in America regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum.
Rioters tore apart Ferguson last night, and the city is clashing with their own police force.
Activists, athletes, actors and musicians in the public eye have been reflecting on the ruling to not indict Darren Wilson, a local white police officer for the shooting of unarmed black Missouri teen Mike Brown.
Here are some responses from local musicians and artists on Ferguson, the riots in Oakland, and escalating police brutality.
My Prayers for the Parents of #MikeBrown We grieve with you. This is a word but not the last word. We stand with You. Pursuing Justice. 🙏
