"For some observers, the humane treatment that Roof, Holmes and McVeigh received from authorities versus the split-second executions of Rice and Crawford, highlights a disturbing contrast in how law enforcement treats suspects depending on their race. During moments of alleged crisis, critics maintain, police not only perceive white suspects versus black ones differently, but may also perceive the existence of a crisis differently."
White privilege making mainstream news is always a good thing. But it's galling when they are so late because predominantly white news organizations are so dense. But obvious examples of white privilege making mainstream news is a good thing. I keep saying that to myself over and over. Something has to penetrate skulls in a lasting way eventually.
