Cleveland Cops and Kids

The child who was shot and died, was black.  I assume the cop was white.  If the child had been white would the cop have put two in the tyke's chest?  Somehow I think not.

Cleveland police kill 12-year-old boy wielding BB gun that looked like a semi-automatic pistol

Race and racism still thrive in this nation.   We, as a people, have improved.  100 years ago this would not have been news at all.  50 years ago it would have been a small local story.  Today it is a national story with which we must contend.  Again, white kid taking two in the chest?
