White Guy Looking Forward To Forgetting About Ferguson

dgl_computer_man_concern_200x241WOODBURY, MINNESOTA – Local white guy Jeff Bernhard is apparently looking forward to a future date when he can forget about the events in Ferguson, MO and get on with his life. When reached for comment, the 44 year-old insurance salesman and father of two noted the media coverage surrounding the police shooting of an unarmed black man made him feel “pretty uncomfortable” and, although he does care about racial issues facing our country, he’d rather not think about it quite so much. The protests following the incident only compounded Bernhard’s anxiety and media attention has made it very difficult for him to avoid dwelling on it. Bernhard is anticipating a date a few weeks from now when everyone will just sort of forget about all this. “Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s important to address the issues of race inequality and overuse of force by the police,” Bernhard said. “But I think we can all agree this is a little too real.”
