There is a new Ferguson in town, only this time it’s on Staten Island, New York. Eric Garner, a black man, died after a white policeman put him in a choke-hold.

There are going to be black stormtroopers in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens film. Prepare for protests if any of them are shot by white Jedis.
