Ferguson 

The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri reminds us that the nation has some serious issues of race and racism that need to be addressed.  In that vein, AP reports that a Mississippi sheriff says a man was beaten and shot two weeks after calling authorities to report a cross burning in his yard, and investigators are trying to determine whether the attack was prompted by people being upset that the man was visited by his mixed-race grandchildren.
