Ferguson: American dream only for the rich

Rioting broke out again in the US city of Ferguson on Tuesday after a grand jury's decision not to indict the white policeman who shot a black teenager in August. But the reasons for the protests go deeper, the liberal daily Slobodna Dalmacija warns: "Without prospects of work or education a critical mass of disenfranchised Afro-American teenagers is emerging that won't be appeased by empty promises of formal human rights any longer. The American system allows only a handful of Afro-Americans to achieve superstar status in sport, the media or showbusiness, thus confirming the maxim of American society: only the rich can secure all human rights for themselves. In this system ethnic minorities are relegated to the fringes of society. ... Where the American dream ends, the nightmares of poverty begin."
