I was not aware that, despite a grand jury decision not to indict in 2014 and a Justice Department investigation that cleared officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown, a St. Louis prosecutor had reopened the case.

One of the two posts of mine that sent some alumni, faculty, and students at Cornell Law School into a rage regarded the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” slogan which has become synonymous with the Black Lives Matter Movement.

The Black Lives Matter movement was born of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. While the BLM founders started their organizing after the prior Trayvon Martin case, it was Brown and Ferguson which launched the BLM movement into the public spotlight through the protests and riots in Ferguson.

In July 2016 I documented a growing tactic in the anti-Israel movement, to blame Israel for domestic U.S. police shootings of blacks, such as Michael Brown in Ferguson.

The tactic, meant to exploit preexisting racial tension and stoke anti-Semitism to turn people against Israel, had been many years in the making, as...

On August 9, 2014, Ferguson, MO, Police Officer Darren Wilson shot dead Michael Brown.

Our first post about it was on August 11, 2014, as rioting broke out. We kept the coverage non-evaluative. We learned from prior cases, such as Trayvon Martin, not to accept at face value racial and other narratives...

For years we have been documenting the efforts by anti-Israel activists to stoke racial hatred of Israel through the concept of “intersectionality” – the notion that all revolutionary struggles, particularly against racism, are connected.

The almost exclusive focus, however, is Israel.  Hence, Israel is falsely blamed for local police shoot...

Facts don’t matter in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Trayvon Martin’s shooting planted the seeds for the movement. Contrary to popular myth, Trayvon was not unlawfully shot and killed by George Zimmerman. The trial evidence was overwhelming that Trayvon attacked Zimmerman with a punch to the nose and when shot was on...

One of the dominant theories of our time is that police officers are waging a Terminator-like war against unarmed young black men, killing them with a ruthlessness and determination evocative of a genocide, all the while escaping legal sanction.
