Ferguson Pastor says Ferguson Doesn’t have a Race Problem

The Pastor of First Baptist Church in Ferguson, Missouri is a man named Stoney Shaw.

Pastor Shaw has credibility when it comes to race issues – he marched hand-in-hand with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through the 1960’s while attending seminary at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky and he’s had a front-row seat to the terrible happenings in Ferguson these last few months.
