(The Washington Post)—Since an unarmed black teenager was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., on Aug. 9, demonstrators have flooded America’s streets to bring the nation’s attention to what they say is an epidemic of police brutality.
Over the weekend in New York City and Oakland, Calif., they tried a different tactic. Tweeting the hashtag #BlackBrunchNYC, protesters targeted what they called “white spaces” — brunch spots.
