Our justice system hangs by a thread. Our prisons are brimming over with black people, so much so that police are just indiscriminately executing them on the streets. Our president calls for police reform, but he’ll be blocked at every turn by those who would shut down a nation rather than do their jobs as public servants. Anger is appropriate, but violence won’t work.

The whole human history is riddled with one group killing another so its ideology will triumph, only to be overtaken by another–endlessly. I don’t have any solutions. I don’t even know where to begin. But I do know that one of these days an officer is going to draw their firearm on another black child, and isn’t going make it back to the station. And I can’t imagine the hell that will ensue as a result.
