(CNN)I was disappointed that there were no protests in Charleston after the jury for Michael Slager --the white former police officer charged with killing an unarmed black motorist in North Charleston, South Carolina -- deadlocked last week. No outpourings of sentiment so forceful, so angry, that they would be deemed riots by those made to feel uncomfortable.
