Lessons from Ferguson should not be lost to revisionist history

... So when you hear our young people asserting that Black Lives Matter, they are not saying that to diminish the worth of others, they are simply calling out a hard, hateful truth that we can no longer deny: In the United States, in 2017, some lives are still worth more than others.
