Race in America: Experts discuss post-Ferguson grand jury decision

NEW YORK (PIX11)– Protests against the Ferguson grand jury decision have fanned out across the country through the day and into the night.

In New York, demonstrators went into Manhattan and Brooklyn. At one point police officers shut down the Lincoln Tunnel and in Times Square police arrested a group of protesters.

In Minneapolis, protesters were targets–a frustrated driver hit the gas and plowed through the crowd.

Monday and Tuesday, throughout America has experienced a new movement in America fueled by a generation that has witnessed what many call an injustice on black men in America. A generation that has watched their unarmed fathers, brothers and sons killed by police officers who never had to pay the price or face a judge for taking a life: Ramarley Graham, Sean Bell, Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

  1. What is great about the peaceful protests is that the people refuse to be silenced on this systematic injustice.
