I can’t write, not clearly or coherently, about my own feelings on this matter. So I’m going to share this young woman since she hits many of the points I would make.

I do tell my kids to please not piss off the police. Texas can be a shoot first, ask questions later sort of place, and the venom I see spewing on local web sites and social media is a constant reminder that color does matter and that racial prejudice is very much a part of everyday life in America.
