After Ferguson

How can we challenge and change the longstanding racial and economic inequalities that Ferguson has come to symbolize?

Any satisfactory answer will begin by acknowledging that racial injustice in and beyond Ferguson is not just about the actions of individuals like Darren Wilson and Michael Brown. It is also about the structures—the laws, the policies, the social and economic institutions—that inform and shape individuals’ actions. Structural racial injustice demands specificallystructural forms of political change.
