Greg Howard declares at Deadspin that America Is Not For Black People (16,198 shares). "The most important, maddening thing you'll read all day," TIME's Eric Dodds calls it. Marie Claire's Janet Mock adds that it's "A powerful read on Michael Brown, the militarization of police & the targets on black bodies in America."

For the LA TimesMatt Pearce explains that protesters are using the hands-up gesture defiantly (836 shares). "This isn't a riot story. My latest, on why the 'hands up/don't shoot' protest is so important in St. Louis," Pearce elaborates. 

And in the meantime, that photo from the NY Times continues to make the rounds on Twitter (461 shares).
