On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we sit down with Michelle Whitfield, AJ Miller and Joe Paul as we discuss the devastating events and overwhelming amount of police presence and force occurring in Ferguson, Missouri after the execution of Mike Brown, an unarmed teenager, by Darren Wilson, a Ferguson police officer.
Eye-witness reports say that Mike Brown was pleading for his life before the officer shot Brown six times, twice in his head in broad daylight and left him in the middle of the street for more than 4 hours. Our conversation surrounds race relations in America, the tragic senseless hunting and killing of black men, what we can do as a society and helping America shine a brighter light on institutionalized racism.
The time for a change is long overdue. We will discuss how we can get there.
Thank you for tuning in.

When actress and comedian Cocoa Brown takes the stage, the world stands still.
Brown is undeniably one of the most talented comics and performers of this generation.
The Newport News, Virginia native, born Farah Brown, assails her craft with such
passion and soul-searching veracity, when she claims a stage the ensuing act is nothing
short of a force of a nature. Cocoa Brown audaciously draws from painful reminiscences
and hard-knocked lessons, bravely weaving humorous tales that uplift, upend, and
upgrade everything you thought you knew about comedy. What drives the comic who
female fans nationwide have nicknamed the “The Truth”? The sheer will of a woman
who survived the worst life had to offer and is still standing.

This week on Correcting The System of Unequal Justice:
Gerald E. Rose and Carla B., open up the phone lines to discuss the situation in Ferguson, Ohio -- stemming from the Michael Brown shooting. Call in & sound off @ 718-664-6543.
Update on the Michael Brown case:
Missouri Senators Claire McCaskill (D) and Roy Blunt (R) released a statement on the case:
“I join all Missourians in remembering the family of Michael Brown & the Ferguson community as they grieve the tragic loss of this young man,” Blunt said. “His recent high school graduation should have been a beginning of better things.”
Police say that Brown was killed while struggling for an officer’s gun.
“As a mother I grieve for this child and his family,” McCaskill said.
The Brown shooting may bring back memories of the Feb. 2012 Florida shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch officer George Zimmerman. Martin’s death sparked nationwide alarm, and Zimmerman’s case (he was acquitted) was addressed by President Obama.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon called for the independent investigation.
“It is vital that the facts about this case are gathered in a thorough, transparent and impartial manner, in which the public has complete confidence. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this tragic event, and I ask St. Louis County residents to exercise patience and respect for their neighbors as federal authorities work to get to the bottom of what happened through this comprehensive, independent review.”
