What could have been different?
Black Lives Matter protests have been overwhelmingly nonviolent. Protesters have the right to express themselves.
A 17 year old white kid “trespassed” into a domain that had otherwise been defined by a majority group. He became a target for people whom, i believe, probably had a legitimate moral argument to ask him to leave to protect the peace. He stood his ground. Tragically, lives were lost. I am pretty sure he regrets the whole thing and will live with what happened the rest of his life.
How right does everyone want to be? Is it worth peoples’ lives? Other peoples’? One’s own?
