Dr. Jill Stein speaks out in Ferguson July 25, 2015 (video/mp4 32.7MB) - by Jill Stein/IndyRadio edit
How many presidential candidates have visited Ferguson? While there, Jill Stein spoke against systemic racism that leads to fatalities, through forced choices in housing, education, and how we deliver justice. It is amazing she has been painted almost completely invisible by the media - even and especially the "progressive" media.

Meanwhile, casual racists are untroubled, since no one has broken any windows. Meanwhile, police continue to murder black and brown people with near impunity.
