Appearing on MSNBC, Eleanor Holmes Norton tried to fan the flames on the Ferguson racial riots.
||Here you have mostly white police force in a mostly black community, but Iím really perplexed about why most of the elected officials are white as well. Is there something about the way elections are done in Missouri or in the county? Thatís troublesome. Usually, when you get a minority community, or a community that becomes mostly minority, you get some diversity of representation. So, you may have elected leadership as well as a police force that does not feel that they are truly representative of the community ó and thatís poison.||Ē|
