If there were any real black leaders in this country they would know exactly what to do with this type of information, but since there aren't any ---there obviously wont be any action taken...

"...More than 1,000 people took part in a rally outside the US embassy in London following the decision not to prosecute the American officer who shot dead black teenager Michael Brown....read more here

I have to agree, all of the traction hopefully won't go to waste.

Peace!

How the rest of the world responded to the Mike Brown decision

"...In Germany, the criticism was harsher. The conservative newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung argued that the underlying reasons for the violence in Ferguson are deep in American society. "The fact that racism exists in America is indisputable — but this racism is not only directed in one direction," the paper wrote..."

"...France's leftist Liberation newspaper took a similar focus. "A predominantly white jury chooses not to pursue another white, accused of murdering a black in a predominantly black city," the newspaper wrote, concluding that Ferguson raises yet again the question of racism and police brutality in the United States..."

"...Closer to home, the Canadian newspaper the Globe and Mail wondered what was next for their neighbor. "After Ferguson, America’s conversation about race has only just begun," an op-ed in the paper read. The same paper had previously used the events in Ferguson to marvel at how effective its own policing was in comparison. "The sad events in the St. Louis suburb give us the opportunity to ponder how we do things differently, and to realize how comparatively well things work here," David Butt, a lawyer writing for the paper, explained in August..."

"...In India, a reporter for NDTV, the cable news channel, said that “the case epitomized race crimes in America” and that the photos of protesters evoking the images from Tiananmen Square were a “symbol of the challenge the greatest nation on Earth faces today...”

"...In Turkey, a country that has seen its own heavy-handed response to protests criticized by the international community, there were reports that the country's official press agency Andalou News had sent war correspondents to Ferguson. A journalist from the same agency had been arrested while covering the protests in August..."

"...Iran's state-owned Press TV ran stories that focused on the protests in 90 other U.S. cities, which it noted started "after St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch said that white police officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted and that he would not even face charges for killing the unarmed African American." In the past, Iranian lawmakers had asked their military to condemn "rights abuses" in Ferguson, and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the country's supreme leader, took to Twitter to criticize the U.S..."

"...So far, North Korea has not responded to the latest developments in the Ferguson case, though in the past it has resorted to exceptionally bellicose language to describe the situation. In August, official state news agency KCNA said that the U.S. had become "a laughing stock of the world" following the problems in Ferguson..."

“...In China, a similar but more subtle approach has been taken. Most media outlets have stuck to reporting the bare bones facts, and China's Foreign Ministry took the opportunity to take the moral high ground Tuesday...The case you mention is a U.S. internal affair. As the spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry I will make no comment on that,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said during a press briefing, according to the Wall Street Journal. “But I would like to say that there’s no such thing as perfection when it comes to human rights regardless of whatever country you're in,” Hua added. “We have to improve the record of human rights and promote the cause of human rights. We can learn from each other in this area.”
