I just came across an article about the recent death of the 18-year old black male, Michael Brown, on Facebook, thanks to Alex Medina.
To sum the article up, it's simply about how the non-black Americans and media are responding to the death; pretty much treating it as norm. Looking away. They're violent; they deserve it don't they?
The death of Michael Brown hit me hard; as expected; another black kid killed by someone (not black/racist) in authority. Not many people in my circle (black, white, etc) are talking about it; not among my circle of facebook friends all over the world - and it kinda bothers me.
I haven't talked about this issue lots to prevent ruffling some feathers; but why play safe? Why start now?
