    • Do not forget Michael Brown
    • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
    • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
    • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
    • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
    • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
    • Do not forget Ferguson

    Family, friends at funeral remember Michael Brown

    Ron Davis, the father of Jordan Davis, a black teen who was unarmed when he was fatally shot in Florida two years ago, arrived with Cephus Johnson, the uncle of Oscar Grant, who was killed by a police officer in Oakland, California, on New Year’s Day in 2009. Film director Spike Lee, Rev. Al Sharpton, and Missouri lawmakers Claire McCaskill and Maria Chappelle-Nadal were among those in attendance.
