Things that matter. Pass ‘em on.
I heard his story on NPR. His mom raised him to “not see color” etc. And the cops beat the hell out of him when they pulled him over. It took seeing him in jail beaten half to death for her to see that race matters every day.
Wow. I am a half black male raised by a white mother…but I’m fortunate to be Canadian. This stuff doesn’t happen here. I’m treated the same wherever I go in this country, and have had very few people assume anything about me because of my ethnicity. That wasn’t a luxury I was given when I lived in the US for 3 years. It’s mindblowing how race is still a serious issue in many parts of the country south of mine. If the cops did anything like that here they would all be held accountable, discharged, and jailed. Wow.
And here we have the wild Canadian fuckboy in his natural habitat. That garbage out of mouth? A distinctive mating call.
