Ferguson and all those that did not come out to vote to get some power behind them. We are the ones that put RACISM back in power. Demonstrations will only last for a moment. It is sad that we threw away our chance to have some fairness in this land. They are even throwing one of our ICONS under the bus Bill Cosby to get the attention of Ferguson. Think about it, 44 to 50 years ago he was making a lot of money(no one said anything). Now that he is old and sick accusers are coming out of the wood work. The statue of limitations has long past but all it takes is a smear. to knock down a legend. SAD no more reruns or anyway to make any money at all.

While I agree with you that more people should have voted (I was hot about that too), I can't support the idea that the women who have accused Bill Cosby of rape are exacting a smear campaign. The accusations have been very consistent over several years. I'm inclined to believe these ladies....but I guess the truth will be revealed.
