Make sure you understand who was elected from the local level.
Who is going to be in charge of putting the police chief in place?
What is that police chief's history?
In regards to talking about white people who feel bad that this happened, I'm going to quote Emerald, (Eric Garner's youngest daughter). 'We don't need your condolences. We don't need y'all to say you're sorry. We need you to help us actually get these laws to be changed. We've had enough condolences.'
