A Group Of Boys Ask Whether They're Next. What They Mean Makes My Heart Sink.
Have you ever had to ask any of the questions they're asking?
Police recently held the son of New York Times columnist Charles Blow at gunpoint. He was walking home from the library at Yale University. To the cops, he fit the description of a burglary suspect. He was shaken up, but his father was fuming.
The students of Georgetown University in the video below feel the same way.
Whether they're living in Ferguson, Missouri, or attending college at Yale or Georgetown, the point these students make is that they're always at risk of police brutality, always suspect to suspicion. They always have to ask a question many of us never consider: Am I next?
