dirge for #Ferguson: a song of condolence from a white ally

I have never feared death by police gunning, and I probably never will. Black men have good reason to, as the Ferguson case has made abundantly clear. This–being targeted, repeatedly and sometimes lethally–by the police, by the very laws that are built to protect Americans’ lives–is a whole new level of human rights violations, and it’s sadly not new at all.
