Other corporations jumped in with multimillion-dollar commitments to help rebuild the majority-black town that became a global symbol of racial and economic inequality; but four years after the unrest, nearly all of the new development is concentrated in the more prosperous — and whiter — parts of town, bypassing the predominantly black southeast neighborhood where Brown was fatally shot by a police officer while walking to his grandmother's home.

...Robert McCulloch, the lead prosecutor of St. Louis County for nearly three decades and the man many blame for failing to get justice after an unarmed black teenager was shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, was unseated Tuesday night by reformist challenger Wesley Bell in the county’s prosecuting attorney race. With 89 percent of votes counted, Bell had 55 percent of the vote to McCulloch’s 45, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Missouri Democratic Rep. William Lacy Clay rebuffed a challenge from Cori Bush in the party's Tuesday's primary

https://www.yahoo.com/news/congressman-holds-off-progressive-challenger-030338352.html
