The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas

This fictional shooting is ticking me off. We now have Starr at the police station trying to give a statement and yes the cops are doing their best to make it seem like her friend somehow was asking for it. I feel for her. I don't know why in the US we always do our best to showcase black victims of police shootings as bigger than they are, scarier than they were, and or talking back or doing something that would never have caused a white girl or boy to have been shot in the same circumstances.
