Again, We Wait for Answers: Justice for Renisha McBride

Mychal Denzel Smith writes for The Nation: “So much of writing/thinking/working around issues of race, racism and blackness in America is to say ‘again.’ Again, the right to vote is under attack. Again, the unemployment rate creeps near depression levels. Again, police chiefs and mayors push racist stop-and-frisk policies. Again, our children face criminalization and the school-to-prison pipeline. Again, we mourn the death of a young black person killed, seemingly, for doing nothing more than being black. This time, her name is Renisha McBride.”
