in today’s “I don’t even know what to say about this” news…
Another dead Black man … another murderer walks free.
The name has changed this time from Travon to Michael. But the story is still the same. Reading through the testimony of Darren Wilson, a few things stood out to me.
- – the sense of privilege
- – the complete disrespect for a Black person’s life
- – the dehumanization of Black life
the last point in particular especially… Wilson said, and I quote, ” IT was like a demon” in reference to how he saw Mike Brown and why he had to put him down like a dog. It is psychologically manipulative and a powerful imagery that could alone sway a prejudiced christian idealist mind.
It immediately puts Wilson in the place of “saviour”…. touche’ mr. white man.
