Across America, whites are biased and they don’t even know it – Most white Americans demonstrate bias against blacks, even if they're not aware of or able to control it. It's a surprisingly little-discussed factor in the anguishing debates over race and law enforcement that followed the shootings of unarmed black men by white police officers.
Hands Up, Don’t Choke – Another police killing of an unarmed man of color. Another grand jury deciding not to indict: Not for murder. Not for manslaughter. Not for assault. Not even for reckless endangerment. We live in a land of impunity. At least, for those in power.
An Appreciation: Eric Garner – Eric Garner repeated "I can't breathe" before he died, but before that he said no. His widow is now saying no.*
