Sacrificing Black Lives for the American Lie

writes: “Why are police officers rarely charged for taking black lives, and when they are, why do juries rarely convict? . . . The deeper answer is that black death matters. . . . In these high-profile cases, it is not just police officers who are on trial. America is on trial. Either these deaths are justified, and therefore America is just, or these deaths are unjustified, and America is unjust.”
