Writing at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, James Causey talks of being while black in the United States. A snippet:
Dallas Police Chief David Brown said, “We don’t feel much support most days. Let’s not make today most days.” Well on the flip side, there are a lot of minorities who don’t feel support from police most days, either.
Too many black men are being shot and killed by police, and this is scary to me because as a black man I know that if I’m shot by police or one of my black friends is shot by police, there is a good chance that nothing will happen to that officer. This is not to say all officers are bad. But I can be stopped by an officer who may be a little jumpy one day and I can reach for my wallet and he can say he thought I was going for a gun — and my life is over.
