Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Ronan Farrow Daily,” Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) said the riots in reaction to the grand jury announcement Monday night that Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson will not face charges for fatally shooting Michael Brown was because of the demise of the American middle class that is causing two Americas to arise.
Nelson said, “What are the conditions in this country that is causing so much strife? And I think if you look at our history, we have had a very stable country, one with rule of law. We always had a large middle class and an aspiring middle class. When we start dividing America becomes two Americas, with the very well off and very un-well off, then we are going continue to have clashes. You have seen that in the tax policy. You have seen that play out in the immigration issue. that’s what concerns me in the future of our country and the direction.”
