I'm a black male living in the USA, and yeah, racism - however subtle or extreme - sucks, and occasionally does cause me to exercise caution in varios situations. But you know what? It's a sad world we live in, for one reason or another. Some folks are forced to face every day of their lives in fear of it being their last, whether it's due to ungoing wars, starvation, or sickness. Ultimately, it's not only tough being black... it's tough being a citizen of this world!

So as a black male, I'm not going to stick my head in the sand, but I also won't let fear - which eventually breeds hatred - have victory over me. Instead, I'll just rejoice in the moments where even a gimmer of hope exists. So, thanks for posting this...

I thought it was a stupid clickbait article. Until I read it. Yup, that is a stark reminder of the sad reality we live in.

Well it's happened again. 40+ people catching a Lapras outside a city hall and a black lady in a chair (her walker next to her) approached by a cop with his hand on his holster. :(

She's understandably traumatized.

Welp. I'm going to be depressed for the next hour or two at least.

kakitie wrote in a Facebook post that approximately five Iowa City police officers stopped him and four guns were pointed at him as police searched for a suspect who had robbed a nearby bank 10 minutes earlier.

This is real and the police pointing guns at a Black person is a potential death sentence.

Fucking infuriating. I'm so glad none of them were hurt.
