It appears that the passion and angst over the killing of 18-year old Michael Brown, is continuing.

While the rioting and looting have subsided, intense through all of this, is the sense of uncertainty, from the perspective of many, as to whether or not justice will prevail. Attorney General Holder visited Ferguson on Wednesday, to assure support in the process, on a federal level.

Invariably, the shooting of Brown, conjures memories of what was thought to be from a bygone era; maybe in truth, it is bygone, but somewhere in this dynamic, perceptions prevail, given the seemingly unchanged and dismal condition of black people in America.

In truth, some have even correlated the shooting and ensuring response on the part of the police, to worldwide situations, such as the events that seem to be spiraling out of control in Gaza.

In truth, are the riots racial in nature, as has been suggested by some in the major media?

Also, Critical Discourse is proud to bring to the Roundtable, Abdul-Hakeem Abdullah, of Muslim Men in Action, as we ask him to weigh in on the aforementioned events and the role and mission of MMA.
