This iReport is part of an assignment:
Black Lives Matter protests (2014)
This goes way back! East Saint Louis Illinois which is just across the Mississippi river had gone through the same thing. My point is that it is all over in that region. Being that the police officer that shot Michael Brown is from Belleville Illinois, about 20 miles from Saint Louis. Belleville is predominantly white and had issues with blacks going into their town!
