This just in–yet ANOTHER black man, this time in Tulsa, Oklahoma, shot to death by a white police officer. On video.
One of the officers involved in the incident was recorded saying the following:
“He shot me! He shot me, man. Oh, my god, I’m losing my breath,” Harris says as officers pin him to the ground following the lethal gunshot.
“You fucking ran! Shut the fuck up! Fuck your breath!” an officer shouts as Harris lies dying.
This is nothing short of abhorrent. I initially started write these blog posts in an effort to show how often minority-related issues are presented in the media and what sort of light is shed on these issues, but I never thought I would be handed so much ammunition. As one person put it, “another day, another hashtag.”
