Media Lit Post #1 — The Shooting of Terence Crutcher
Mae Bennett

This was really thoughtful and well written, and I agree with you on so much of what you said. I think it’s easy for people to kind of just sweep black lives under the rug or turn the other cheek when a shooting like this happens because most people would assume what was being done was right and justifiable based on the stereotypes that you mentioned.

So many people have died and most of the public probably haven’t even heard half of the stories or know more than half of the names of the black lives that have been lost. I think that you brought up some really important points.

Like what you read? Give Kortney Dodson a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
