Ilana Mercer, a columnist at WorldNetDaily, wrote that while the Ferguson, Mo. shooting was an example of "police brutality," the "rise of the warrior cop," and "militarization," it was not an example of racism, saying that theory amounted to "nonsense on stilts."

While Mercer expressed outrage at the militarization and "unjustified use of lethal police force" that occurred in Ferguson, she refused to acknowledge that there was anything racist about it.

Could it be that ordinary Americans maligned as racists are honestly waiting for more information, or suffer an authoritarian, submissive mindset; are ignorant about “police state USA,” or have simply experienced “black crime” firsthand, or are fearful of experiencing “black-on-white violence” in all it (sic) ferocity?

Writing that Brown's "community of submissives would be silent" if the victim had been white, Mercer added that "black, brown and white, we are all in this together," a realization she said President Barak Obama and the Reverend Al Sharpton have failed to acknowledge.

"Like two pimps in a pod, Sharpton and Obama have collaborated to keep racial grievance going," Mercer wrote.
