2 Years After Ferguson, Mo., the Fight Grows, Goes On for Black Lives Matter by lindaoppenheim | Aug 9, 2016 | Article | 2 comments On the second anniversary of the killing of Mike Brown in Ferguson, MO, Lawrence Ross reviews the history and current status of Black Lives Matter for The Root. 2 Comments nayan B Trivedi on August 9, 2016 at 1:29 pm I am so amazed by the priorities the media and our politicians set on various social topics. “Black Life Matters” got some decent publicity in the beginning. Of Course I do not pay attention to the right wingers like the former mayor when they use euphemism such as “all life matters”. But it increasingly seems to me (rightly or wrongly) that even the liberal politicians utilize the title to score a few points, but just a lip service. Then, then the election games started. Its been almost a publicity “blackout” type situation for that worthy cause in last several weeks in spite of continued violence against the black youth. Hope the day comes, for us all, when the society stops chanting about “racial justice” and start taking positive steps in that direction.
