What an absolute miscarriage of justice.
I am beyond disgusted. I am not totally surprised but I had hoped. Had. Hoped.
The system of white supremacy let a child murderer go free. I feel less safe and more angry. I am no longer willing to give anyone who is of reasonable age the benefit of the doubt. If you don’t recognize that white privilege exists, that racism is alive and well, that American culture continues to weave a damaging mythology around the bodies of black people, you are stupid. Not ignorant, or misguided. Stupid. And I don’t need to know you.
