Dr. Jill Stein speaks out in Ferguson July 25, 2015

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.

While condemning systemic racism in Ferguson, Dr. Jill Stein arrives at several related insights in her brief but powerful address: "We have the power to end federal funding to police that is (wrongly) based on the number of arrests" and "Marijuana is not illegal because it is dangerous, it is dangerous because it is illegal". We have the power!

A Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to disrupt the recording near the end of this blurry video.

The video was cropped and sized from the one that is available on YouTube. It is regrettable that her events are usually not well documented.
