Eyes send the message;
Aliens failed to read
rage, despair, defeat.

    • They keep on happening. Where is the thought in these people of authority to look inside themselves before they react, particularly in a non-life-threatening situation?

    • I cannot imagine what living with this sort of constant threat in normal daily life must be like – “as a black woman in America, I do not feel alive. I feel like I am not yet dead” – truly appalling.

    • Hi Jo – the story at your link shows how backward and insular many of these cops are – so education is certainly part of eradicating such entrenched racism.
      (PS I live in Australia :-)).
