Ferguson and the Violence of Indifference

Robert F. Kennedy, the day after the death of Martin Luther King challenged our country to rid ourselves of the violence of indifference, which slowly corrodes humanity and poisons the relationships between men and women because of a difference in the color of their skin. The violence of indifference is what Ferguson is asking us to indict, and I draw on the voices, protests, and events in Ferguson to challenge educators to interrogate their own indifference and those of their students.
