Of the more than 16,000 words uttered at Sunday night’s debate, not one of them was “Ferguson.”

The debate took place at Washington University in St. Louis, an eight-mile drive from the suburb that erupted in rebellion following the 2014 death of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, and the failure to indict the officer who shot him, Darren Wilson. It was a moment that shifted America’s discourse around race and policing, and helped usher in the Black Lives Matter movement. 

But if you watched Hillary Clinton duel Donald Trump on Sunday, you’d never know it happened. On a night filled with personal vitriol unlike any other we’ve witnessed in modern political history, Ferguson — and the demands for a radical rethinking of black life in America that it prompted — wasn’t even a footnote. Instead, the candidates spoke about race in vague generalities that often missed the point entirely.
