Quotes:

If black lives truly mattered to the know-nothings who comprise this
movement, they would have something—​anything—to say about the fact
that approximately ​5,500​ of the ​6,095​ black victims of homicide in 2014
were killed not by white devils, not by satanic ghouls in blue uniforms, but by
other blacks.

Notes:
Police aren’t killing black people its other black people killing black people.

Summary:
It is clear there is a pattern of unjust officers attacking unarmed black people. Even when
other black people are killing other black people, it is still a problem that must be addressed.

police who are committing these action. It is clear there is a pattern of unjust officers attacking
unarmed black people. Some say, it’s black people who are killing black people, even if this is
true, it is still a problem that must be addressed.
