NBC TV drama Homicide episode 310, "Every Mother's Son," directed by Ken Fink, aired a story in 1995 of an African American boy that accidentally shot another African American boy in the head at close range. During the course of the investigation, the mother of the shooter unknowingly meets the mother of the victim and finds that they have much in common: poverty, violence and empty heart. It is a common theme for African American women who reside in impoverished urban neighborhoods. Criticizing the media coverage of the killing of unarmed Ferguson, Mo., teenager Michael Brown, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday, "93 percent of blacks are killed by other blacks. White police officers wouldn't be there, if you weren't killing each other."  Georgetown professor Michel Eric Dyson said Giuliani was applying a "false equivalency" to the situation in Ferguson. Nearly 84 percent of white victims from 1980 to 2008 were killed by white assailants. "Black people who kill black people go to jail, but white people who are policemen who kill black people do not go to jail." Did you know? While people were waiting for the Grand Jury decision about Darren Wilson in Missouri , two more killing happened in confrontation between African American and police. An unarmed African-American was shot dead by police in a Brooklyn housing project. Police reported that the shooting appears to have been accidental. Another death of a black youth made headlines Monday: A 12-year-old boy in Cleveland was shot over the weekend by an officer as police responded to a 911 call about what turned out to be a toy handgun. The Protest after the Grand Jury decision implies much more than simply indicting a white police officer. It is a broader pattern of excessive use of force by police against African-Americans. Do we really need militarization of law enforcement for domestic policing?

Ferguson's symbolism now sits alongside Selma's significance in the civil rights movement, Columbine as a symbol of teenage rage and gun violence, and Kent State's historic link to anti-war protests. Those are places that have adjusted - some more smoothly than others - to their emblematic meaning. (WP)  
It was better to endure indignities like infidelity, other wives told them, and to keep quiet even if the hostility in their marriages seemed unbearable than to cause a ruckus that could upend the success and harmony of the team. (NYT)
