Quote of the Day

You'd be beside yourself if your children were slaughtered, and then had their slaughter justified on television, and on social media, as their names were heedlessly dragged through the mud because they playfully posed as a gangsta and posted the photo to their Facebook or Twitter account.  How many of your kids do that too?  Yet they grow up to be bankers and lawyers or cops who kill black people because those black people provoke suspicion by doing the very thing those same cops did when they were young.  But they didn't end up dead.  They end up making us dead.

-- Michael Eric Dyson, Tears We Cannot Stop, p. 192
