As we speak, many voices believe that such a joke had no place in the awards gala and that producers should have never sanctioned it, if only for the reason that the show was heavily in the shadow of the racially-motivated unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, where an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by a white police officer.

But Brown wasnt the first unarmed black person killed by police officers in 2014, although he was the first to inspire mass demonstrations, riots, and an unprecedented, draconian police response of armored vehicles, automatic weapons, and tear gas.

The protests in Ferguson, Missouri, the riots in Baltimore, and the shooting in a Charleston sanctuary all demonstrate that true freedom and equality remain works in progress.

Of course Twitter has its own video tools in addition to its own video app, Vine, which Dorsey used to record some of the Ferguson protests.

The stuff Im sayingit looks a lot like what people have been reporting from Ferguson, from New York, from Baltimore.

I was sitting on the sidewalk outside of the upscale fashion boutique Maxfield, on trendy Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles.

As for how badly her back hurt after the shoot, thats probably her way of trying to make people to see the shoot as a difficult task, one that wasnt even half as glamourous as it seemed: in Kims mind, art isnt something thats achieved too easily, you have to invest blood and tears (and baby oil) in it.
