In a discussion about the latest developments related to the death of Michael Brown and the subsequent civil unrest and political grandstanding in Ferguson, Missouri, Project 21 member Kevin Martin rhetorically asked host Rick Amato: “I thought this was about justice?”

“All of a sudden,” Kevin commented, “the political message is bubbling up.”  Talking on the 8/25/14 edition of “The Rick Amato Show” on the One America News Network about complaints that the grand jury considering potential charges against the police officer who shot Brown is predominantly white, Kevin wondered “what the heck does the racial make-up have to do with it,” and added, “it’s getting ridiculous” that critics are “always looking for the racial component in something.”

With the recent revelation that the White House is going to Al Sharpton for information and advice about the developments in Ferguson, Kevin said that he could not understand why the Obama Administration would not instead rely on federal officials already based in the St. Louis area rather than choosing to hear something filtered through a “professional agitator” such as Sharpton.
