Solomon Jones comments:
I see a black man named Alton Sterling — who was armed, but hurt no one — shot and killed by police. I see a white man named James Holmes taken alive after killing 12 and injuring 70 in a movie theater shooting. I see a white man named Dylann Roof kill nine black parishioners in a church, get arrested by police without incident, and then get a trip to Burger King courtesy of police officers who thought he might be hungry.
The racial disparities in our law enforcement system are many. They are obvious. They are wrong.
