The C.O.W.S. SPANISH LAKE: #Ferguson #JusticeForMikeBrown

[jwplayer mediaid=”6092″]

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Phillip Andrew Morton. Mr. Morton is 35-year-old White Man and St. Louis, Missouri native. He’s a filmmaker by trade and has worked with Hollywood stars Regina King and Kat Williams and contributed to the 2012 feature Battleship. Mr. Morton produced, directed and edited the 2014 documentary film, Spanish LakeThe project investigates the Racist White Flight from the St. Louis suburb of Spanish Lake. The White filmmakers accurately attribute the stark demographic shift to White Supremacy (Racism). Gus began hearing about this film in June of 2014 – about two months before the shooting death of Michael Brown, Jr. The world watched Ferguson become a literal war zone over the last month – tanks and tear gas. Much of the talk revolved around how this small predominantly black town is ruled and bullied by an almost exclusively White police department and local government. Morton’s film seems to offer many correct answers. Coincidentally, Whites in St. Louis elected to cancel a previously schedule August showing of Spanish Lake because they feared it would agitate racial tensions.
