Did Darren Wilson invent systemic racism?

The anti-climatic conclusion to this grand jury drama that has played out in Missouri, is that officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted.

Well, he should have been.

On the other hand, that would be letting the bigger villains off the hook.

Why are cops today trained to use overwhelming force first?

Darren Wilson is a product of his training and his socialization. Darren Wilson did not invent systemic racism.

Both Michael Brown and Darren Wilson are products of that system of institutionalized systemic racism that saturates America 150 years after Lincoln allegedly freed the slaves.
