Ferguson a defining moment for race relations in USA...........

FERGUSON, Mo.— When it comes to combating racial inequality, Cat Daniels says her generation has failed their children.
Daniels, 53, has tried to do her part righting that wrong by cooking and serving as the hen mother for countless young people on the front lines of the protest movement that blossomed here after the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager in August.
"This is 2014, and we are still confronting the problems that our mothers and fathers confronted back in the civil rights era," said Daniels, who is affectionately called Mama Cat by the protesters. "My generation came along, and we fed off what they did. We didn't fight and keep the fight going. Now, because we didn't keep the fight, our children have to fight."
The anger in the African-American community over a grand jury's decision last week not to indict Darren Wilson, the white police officer who killed 18-year-old Michael Brown, hasn't subsided.
