I'm going to be attending this free event this weekend (Saturday and Sunday) 'Black People's Grand Jury.' I believe this event is being presented for fair-minded people who have not already made up their minds as to guilt or innocence, right or wrong. The little snippets of information we receive from the media DO NOT accurately portray the facts and details of the case. Virtually all of it has some ideological or commercial intent which skews the actual, detailed, nuanced story. If you appreciate civil discussion, then I urge you to look at this article BUT to refrain from reading the extreme, biased comments below it. They represent the worst tendencies of our culture in which we demonize others with whom we disagree. This kind of knee-jerk dehumanization is exactly the kind of problem we face as a society.
