Years ago it was said that driving while Black was dangerous, but the cold blooded murder of Ahamaud Arbery by two white men in Georgia allows us to tweak that to jogging while Black is deadly. And yet no arrests have been made. The murders, no assassins, are still free, going about their lives as if nothing happened. Gloating, I’m sure, over their “trophy killing” in conversations with their close friends.
Can you imagine a similar response by law enforcement if two Black men murdered a innocent young white man jogging in a neighborhood on a bright sunny day? Once again, racism proves to be deadly, especially for young Black men.
