A Failure to Indict. A Statement from Mocha Moms, Inc.






We stand with the family of Michael Brown. Mocha Moms, Inc. is profoundly disappointed that the grand jury has decided not to indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed unarmed teen in Ferguson, MO this summer. Our hearts go out to Michael Brown's family and our thoughts and prayers are with the Ferguson community.

While we are disappointed, few of us are surprised. We respect the process of justice we have in this country. However, we will never accept the culture of preconceived notions and stereotypes that drives our sons unfairly and disproportionately into that process. We are so tired of our boys being killed. We are so tired of courts failing to recognize the value of our children's lives.

We will continue to teach our children to be respectful. We will continue to teach our children to value themselves and others. The only way America can truly become the great society we claim ourselves to be is if all Americans commit to doing the same, and stop marginalizing and criminalizing our black and brown children.
