Ferguson, Football, Fits and Fundraising I was just thinking. Kill a dog, and you’re going to prison. Shoot yourself, and you’re going to prison. Walk Black down any street in America, and you “fit the profile”, so you just might be on your way to prison. Die an unarmed black man at the hands of white cops and your character goes on trial by a national jury of media and non-peers. Kill an unarmed black man as a white cop in America, and you’ll be home in time for dinner, with a couple of hundred thousand dollars in crowd-sourced fundraising to show for your trouble. The difference? Being a nigger versus a white man in America.
