The trial for the first officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray has ended in a mistrial. The jury deliberated for 15 hours over three days before a judge in Baltimore declared a hung jury in the case against Officer William Porter. William Brangham joins Gwen Ifill from outside the courthouse in Baltimore for an update.

What's left unsaid is that whites want the changes to be comfortable, on their terms and sacrifices shared equally. Authentic change cannot happen this way. Whites will have to do the heavy lifting, if blacks could fix it, it would be fixed by now.

Whites need to make racial and economic justice part of their personal politics, make commitments and vote accordingly.

White people have to rethink why they feel like they are losing something, equality shouldn't be a threat to them.

Umi Selah (formerly known as Philip Agnew) and Jelani Cobb and their words were the highlights of the evening.

After the 1991 beating of Rodney King, the Department of Justice started investigating police departments for patterns of abuse. How many investigations have launched since then, and what has changed? Explore for yourself in 'Fixing The Force' -- a new +FRONTLINE PBS | Official that compiles 20 years of data, and the stories behind the numbers. 
For two decades, the Justice Department has had the power to investigate law enforcement agencies nationwide. We're tracking each inquiry and the stories behind them.

Bottom line, whichever is the dominate gene in your DNA is who you are.  Most likely that is Black, African Decent. Period.  Keep it simple.  If you are not Irish, Swedish pale caucausian, you are of African Decent.  Mulotto is a name given to slaves who produced babies due to rape.  Wake up
