Here's a very big "What if...?"
What if the police were fully justified in shooting this guy?? That's a distinct possibility. But no. People across the country assume the police were wrong before knowing all the facts of what happened.
I'm not an NBA guy at all but I totally agree with your post. In fact, what bothers me is the message it sends to black youth. There was a time when black culture emphasized education and hard work. Parents taught their children that it was the only way out of generational poverty. Now the message is "let's protest before we even know the facts".
Sometimes criminals have to die. That's reality and it's the police who do this dirty job. Not every black man or white man or Hispanic man who gets shot is the symbol of some grave injustice. The media needs to STOP with this bullshit narrative before this country burns to the ground...unless that's what they want??
