The Real Racist Conspiracy In Ferguson

After a grand jury in St. Louis, Missouri, voted 
against the indictment of Officer Darren Wilson 
in the killing of 18-year-old black man Michael 
Brown, President Obama gave a short address to 
the nation. In it, he said he understood why some 
would feel disappointed at the verdict ­ an odd 
statement, given that all available evidence 
showed that Brown had robbed a convenience store, 
attacked Wilson in his vehicle, attempted to grab 
his gun and charged Wilson before Wilson shot him.

Then Obama dropped a doozy: "We need to recognize 
that this is not just an issue in Ferguson, this 
is an issue for America ... there are problems 
and communities of color aren't just making these problems up."

Obama did not specify what problems he wanted to 
discuss. Nor did he explain why Ferguson's issues 
were America's. But the largest lie was the 
notion that "communities of color" don't make problems up.

Because in Ferguson, that's precisely what a community of color did.

In the immediate aftermath of the Brown shooting, 
grand jury documents show, witness intimidation 
and lying became the order of the day. Witness 
after witness told police that local thugs were 
intimidating those who had seen the events. One 
witness told police, according to the St. Louis 
Police Investigative Report, that threats "had 
been made to the residents of Canfield Green 
Apartment Complex." This witness said that "notes 
had been posted on various apartment buildings 
threatening people not to talk to the police, and 
gunshots were still being fired every night."

The witness wasn't alone. Other witnesses stated 
that supposed witnesses were lying to the media 
about events, that others who had seen the events 
were "embellishing their stories" in order to 
convict Wilson. One witness stated, "You have to 
understand the mentality of some of these young 
guys they have nothing to do. When they can latch 
on the something they embellish it because they want something to do."

Some 16 witnesses testified that Brown's hands 
were up when he was shot, which was factually 
false according to the autopsy. Another 12 
witnesses said that Wilson shot Brown from behind 
­ again, false according to the autopsy. One 
witness testified that Wilson used both a Taser 
and a gun ­ false. Another said that Brown had 
kneeled before Wilson shot him. When confronted 
with the fact that the physical evidence made 
such an account impossible, the witness 
acknowledged he hadn't seen the event, and then 
asked if he could leave the grand jury because he was "uncomfortable."

In 1964, Kitty Genovese was stabbed to death 
outside her apartment complex in New York. The 
entire nation gasped in horror when it learned 
that supposed witnesses had not called the police.

Fifty years later, the nation completely ignores 
the fact that an entire community apparently 
lied, facilitated lying or intimidated witnesses 
in order to put an innocent man behind bars, 
because he happened to be white. At least Kitty 
Genovese's neighbors didn't actually murder her. 
Members of the Ferguson community tried to murder 
Darren Wilson by putting him on death row. 
Meanwhile, President Obama and those in the media 
who played up the original narrative cheered them on.
