Former Georgia State Senator, former Georgia State Representative, NAACP chairman, member of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, first president of the Souther Poverty Law Center and University of Virginia professor Julian Bond died this week. Gus’ studied Racism and the Civil Rights Movement in Bond’s class for a semester. The New York Times used this moment to brand his great-grandmother, Jane Bond, a “slave mistress.” The hefty number of White chics on the Jonathan Ferrell jury are likely flexing their muscle, as reports indicate a deadlock in deliberations in the manslaughter trial of Randall Kerrick. Ferguson, Missouri continues to roil, while last summer’s protesters are still facing possible convictions.
