Thoughts on tragedy:
Most times when a white person is violent, they are labeled “mentally ill.” If their skin is another color, they are a “thug” or “terrorist” — dehumanized. This is a racist narrative and we should stop accepting it.
Black Lives Matter. That phrase does not devalue other races, so don’t knee-jerk “all lives matter.” Stop and listen.
The president lamented mass violence in America today, yet the government kills and tortures people around the world. I think to reduce violence, we must reject it both institutionally and privately.
