After Ferguson: Defend the Dead

Rinaldo Walcott

Black people across North America are living in a state of emergency. It has been a long and unbroken state of emergency.

In every instance that something called change or progress occurs other factors quickly arrive to maintain the state of emergency. From the ongoing conditions of poverty, to substandard and unequal educational opportunities, to unemployment and underemployment, to over policing and death -- each day black people are reminded our lives do not matter.
