Racism Raises Its Head on House Floor

After the president’s meeting with leaders on race, the Congressional Black Caucus took to the House floor to discuss the events in Ferguson, Missouri.

“The Ferguson grand jury’s decision not to indict former officer Darren Wilson was yet another slap in our face,” said Representative Marcia Fudge of Ohio. “It was another painful reminder that just like with Trayvon Martin, and Tamir Rice, and so many others, that law enforcement officers kill our black and brown boys without repercussions.”

Then Congressman Hakeem Jeffries brought the “hands up, don’t shoot” pose to the House floor.

“’Hands up, don’t shoot’ — it’s a rallying cry of people all across America who are fed up with police violence in community after community after community…in Ferguson, in Brooklyn, in Cleveland, in Oakland,” Jeffries said.

So much for the rule of law.
