A Tale of Two Countries

It's 7 pm and I am at holiday party in the Upper West Side. Just a few hours ago another shocking not indictment verdict for the Eric Garner's chokehold death caused by a white police officer.
A week ago on November 24 another not indictment verdict for the unarmed teenager Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, on August 9.
What's going on? Is this a tale of two countries?
It is a troubled time, full of contradictions, from the comfort of technology to the never ending racial hate.
