Protestors march down in Ferguson, MissouriBy Tim McLaughlin FERGUSON Missouri (Reuters) - In many ways Dwayne James is a beacon of hope in Ferguson, which has been torn apart by racially charged riots.

Ferguson's black residents complain that they do not have a voice in the town's power structures, and that lack of representation has contributed to the anger that has sparked rioting, they say.
