It all seems like too much.
Another child (13 years old!) shot to death with his hands up.
This is, sadly, the America I know. The America where I always look for idling cars when I’m on walks. Where I choose vacation spots based on the likelihood that I’ll be the only person of color in the city. Where I take my hands out of my pocket whenever I see law enforcement.
Another dead 13-year old.
I’m unsurprised, and am terrified that I’m unsurprised.
We have to do better. We just have to.
