Good to see Black republicans like Crystal Wright stand up and speak out against the extrajudicial murder of a Black teenager by asking the important questions. Do these people have souls?

Crystal is known to be trash

Don’t pay her any mind

boys just make me want to be put in a garbage bag and tied up and thrown into a dumpster to suffocate and die

I hate the concurrent acceptance of US military and the opposition to militarized police.

FYI Israel has resumed bombing Gaza and has already injured 2 children.

The total Palestinian casualties caused by Israel today were 3 dead — including a 3 year old girl — and 40 injured. Many of these casualties were from the al-Dalou family, whose home in the Sheikh Radwan area was targeted in an airstrike. In Israel’s previous massacre in Gaza in November 2012, Israel killed 12 members of this same family in another airstrike.

Egypt’s government has called on US authorities to show restraint against protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.

It said it was “closely following the escalation of protests” after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman on 9 August.

The statement echoes US President Barack Obama’s comments during Egypt’s crackdown on protesters in 2013.

Correspondents say the criticism is unusual since Egypt gets about $1.5bn (£1bn) in aid from the US every year.

President Obama is under increasing pressure to bring an end to the violent scenes in the St Louis suburb.

It is now 10 days since Michael Brown’s death, which sparked mass demonstrations.

Jay Nixon, the governor of Missouri, has ordered the National Guard to support police operations, but violence flared again on Monday night, with law enforcement officers arresting 31 people.

The statement from Egypt’s foreign ministry followed a similar call from United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon, who called on Missouri police to abide by “US and international standards”.

Iran added its voice to the criticism, with Majid Takht-Ravanchi, the deputy foreign minister for European and American Affairs, saying the unrest was a sign of “the phenomenon of racism” in the West.

Meanwhile Chinese state news agency Xinhua said that despite the US playing the role of an international human rights defender, the clashes showed “there is still much room for improvement at home”.

"Obviously, what the United States needs to do is to concentrate on solving its own problems rather than always pointing fingers at others," the Xinhua editorial added.

Members of the Asian American community at UC Davis are taking a stand in solidarity with the people of Ferguson and their continued struggle for survival in the face of police brutality. All black lives matter.
