This is what we need right now. We need to talk. We need to sit down, like civilized human beings, and talk about this on a level playing field. We need to talk about the reasons behind the actions, not the reasons of the individuals, but the reasons of the demographics. We need to ask why the victims did not listen to the police. We need to ask why the police pulled the trigger instead of talking it out, or pulling out the taser or the pepper spray. We need to ask how to address the answers to these questions, how WE the people will fix them. Legislation is not going to solve these problems. Law enforcement is not going to solve these problems. Video cameras and social media are not going to solve these problems. We must solve them, and to do that, we gotta talk about ’bout race.
So talk. There’s the comment box. Go.
