The population of Ferguson, Missouri is over two-thirds Black. In the 2010 census, Whites comprised less than 30% of the town’s residents. So, it would be logical to assume the city government would reflect those racial demographics.
But, that assumption would be completely wrong. The mayor of Ferguson is white, five of the six city council members are white, 50 of its 53 police officers are white, and the local school board is 100% white.
