There are loads of movies about black criminals — rewritten the way the media were hoping the story would come out, but didn’t. (Movie: “Murder Without Motive: The Edmund Perry Story.” Spoiler alert! The tale of a racist white cop who shot an innocent black honor student for no discernible reason.)
How about a movie paying tribute to the African-American eyewitnesses in Ferguson who told the truth to the grand jury?
Who speaks for them?
It’s sure not Sen. Rand Paul.
We need video footage of blacks burning other blacks’ stores down juxtaposed with clips of Sen. Paul saying that the reason “three out of four people in prison are black or brown” may be “because of the color of their skin or their economic status.” Another possibility — I’m just throwing it out there — is that the reason black, brown or white people are in prison is because they’ve committed crimes.
