"What was a policeman, if not a civilian with a uniform and a badge? But they tended to use the term [civilian] these days as a way of describing people who were not policemen. It was a dangerous habit: once policemen stopped being civilians, the only other thing they could be was soldiers."

About Ferguson

So of late a lot of things have been happening in my hometown of St. Louis.
Many have asked me for my opinion on it. Questioned how St. Louis is or was while I lived there. Since almost no one reads my tumblr I thought this would be a good place to journal what my thoughts are.

First, the death of Michael Brown did not surprise me. The racist undertones did not surprise me. The rioting, the over compensating by police the over reacting the lack of dilogue, nothing surprised me.

This does not mean I was not saddened and appalled by of the aforementioned, in fact I was. I just wasn’t surprised this was happening in America in my state and in my home town.

It was hard for most people I know, now that I live in Toronto, to understand the demographics and historic segregation of St Louis. While I was growing up and still to this this day thee was mandatory desegregation bussing programs to send children to schools in the county. Think about that for a second, how divided does a modern city have to be to still be in desperate need of desegregation.

A little truth about St. Louis, it is very divided. In fact you can use a map and trace the white flight from the 1950s till today. Yes, Today! While there is a strong group of young people and families moving back to the city proper there are more and more people white people also moving farther and farther out. Ferguson is a prime example of a neighborhood that almost completely changed demographics in a few decades. Question that. Why? Because as blacks moved in whites moved out. It is so sickening how recent this white flight was still going on in St. Louis.

The issue in St. Louis is not just about the racism of the police the issue of racism in St. Louis it self needs to be addressed. Why? Because, that’s where our police force comes from. That is the pool where our politicians and law makers are chosen. If the pool of available candidates is infested with deep seeded racism they may not even be aware of then what hope is there for change?

We must ask for help as a city and county united to make strides to live together. We must focus on education. Quality education. There is so much more to talk about with this issue. I know that for a lot of people the issues of St. Louis may not be so foreign. However, if anyone has any questions about what St. Louis is like or about just how bad the race relations have been and still are. I’m happy to answer any questions.

Let’s just pray that we can have a safe night and eventually some peace for all my fellow St. Louisans. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Fear not your struggle is just and righteous.
