Why are We Marching?

This needs to be shared:

Are people mad because a white man killed an unarmed black teen, or because they think he hated said teen? Hate is wrong, but you should be just as mad about anyone’s child being killed for no good reason. I think the problem is that we are all too ready to draw those colored lines in the sand, either out of fear or righteous indignation, or whatever the justification du jour is. We are quick to jump to the defense of a child that looks like we do, without making that same leap to defend one who doesn’t.

Thank you, Chris.
