Tonight on internet radio show Center Stage we will explore why African Americans feel they are being targeted for extinction through ebola and police brutality. In both cases it appears African Americans are being singled out far more than other groups to have their situation turn deadly. There are over 3,400 deaths due to ebola in West Africa and all are Black. In cases of fatal police shootings it does not take much to realize most police encounters that turn deadly are with people of color. The question is why.

This week St Louis Police killed 18 year old Vonderrit Myer Jr., because they say he shot at them first, however, eye witness accounts say he was carrying a sandwich that police mistook for a gun.
