The Banality of Black Death
Eli Langley

With all due respect, this is a highly racist opinion piece, with no facts to back up your broad strokes. Comments like, “Certainly, the proportion of black people killed unjustly by police officers far outnumber[s] the number of police officers indicted for those killings” demonstrate that. How could you possibly know that? I think we have work to do as a society, and there is certainly a crisis in the black community, but your perspective is perpetuating the current downward spiral, not reversing it.
