Kotaku: Pokémon Go Could Be A Death Sentence For A Black Man

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...

...but it's not all doom and gloom!

 
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.

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.
