Racism isn’t a subject we talk about lightly and defiantly not something we have talked about in class in a uncomplicted and ever changing topic. Today in class @taylornovickfinder @lucasfromnewyork @josuepasillas you presented your manifesto on the unfair treatment by police and in particular reference to black males “looking a certain way”. A friend of mine posted this a few weeks back on social media and although nothing new the headline title really got my attention and in particualr the first few lines, I think it sums up perfectly what your advocating for!

Those who resist are treated like terrorists – as in Ferguson this year, and as I and other black activists were in the 60s and 70s”
