The fact is, in the United States in 2015, black people do not own their bodies. The police do. In this climate of violence, one could say that every day, black people are loaned their bodies, and each day they are not shot or maimed, they are privileged to continue stewardship of their vessels.
The Banality of Black Death

This is a powerful, painful sentiment. The fact that we have illustrations about a black family’s talk with their child vs. a white family drives this point home. Profiling is normal. Assumptions are always made. We still must tread lightly, not make a fuss and be complacent in the face of loss and injustice. Thank you for speaking up.
