Black and white Americans are responding very, very differently to the situation in Ferguson. While “this one chart that explains [something]” posts are kind of overdone, this one chart does illustrate the different responses very clearly: The death of Michael Brown and the ensuing response was always going to lead to a racially charged situation in Ferguson — an area where black drivers are much, much more likely to be stopped as white drivers — as well as in how people are reacting to this story. Still, the gulf here is really something. Aaron Blake has much more over at The Fix.
