Lady Atheist on rational responses to racism and police brutality
I have some reservations about her analysis. I'm convinced that racism often plays the biggest role in why some people get shot by the police and others don't. There is a terrible problem which divides the country -- an institutionalized injustice, often deadly, against one-eighth of the American people. We have to eradicate that. The status quo is intolerable. I've added a comment on her post which expresses these reservations in more detail.
But the liberal blogosphere's response to the crisis has often been flawed and simplistic, and Lady Atheist's post does the best job I've seen of elucidating that. Read it with an open mind -- resist the urge to close off thought with labels and clichés. We make our case best when we recognize the complexity of the situation, not when we dismiss facts and observations which don't fit the narrative.
