Unarmed in America


21:1 is the official statistic of young, unarmed black men to young, unarmed white men shot and killed by police. There is no shortage of explanations for this fact, and these explanations are frequently embraced by one ideological group or another at the expense of the constructive conversations we must have.

I think about this every time my white sons go out with their black friends, knowing that even as they walk together they walk into two very different worlds. I hope ‘Unarmed in America’, helps all of us see the statistic 21:1in human terms.

Mixed media, including a bullet I found while walking to work.
