           NEW YORK - Concerned about the racial overtones in Ferguson, Missouri and the recent death of a black man at the hands of white policemen in New York City, the City's Mayor Bill de Blasio today called a summit with religious leaders of the Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and Muslim faiths to try and heel ill will.
           The Mayor told a press conference afterward that "we all look at events in Ferguson with a sense of pain, but there is a deep understanding there is a way of doing things in New York." de Blasio seemed to be tempering this weekend's demonstration on Staten Island to protest the choke hold death of Eric Garner during his arrested by white NYPD officers while allegedly selling single, untaxed cigarettes.
