Nothing is going to change as long as people refuse to see and accept the truth about the Michael Browns in our society. He MIGHT HAVE BEEN the person the speakers described at his funeral, but he CHOSE NOT TO BE. His family apparently chose not to bother knowing with whom he was keeping company, not to observe his habits, and not to be concerned about the direction of his life. We don’t know much about Michael, but we know that he chose to hang out with a fellow with a bad reputation, steal, intimidate, and disregard the demand of a law officer that he stop obstructing traffic. It also may be that Michael chose to assault a police officer, but that will be sorted out later. Meanwhile, Mike Brown’s supporters have decided to cover Mr. Brown’s casket with their own truth. More young black men will take the wrong road and end up sprawled in the street. Nothing will change. Pity.
