So much of what James Baldwin said is still relevant today.
It’s worth reading the replies to this:
Oops, the guy we killed was not the shooter, but he was black and fleeing, so we assume he was involved.
Of course, the “good guy with a gun” is assumed to be a white guy, and a black guy with a gun is known as a “target”. “He shouldn’t have been holding the gun” that he had a permit to carry in a situation where someone was actually shooting. He would be a hero if only he had less pigment…
The casualties go beyond the direct targets.
Hope, maybe? Of course, the fact the victim was an undercover cop makes this a fairly unique case.
