This is What I've Been Saying
That people tend to care more (or only care?) about violence when it hits suburban white kids. I understand that it's comforting to think that your children are different from those kids getting hurt and killed, but all kids are worth as much as yours are. All of them. I do not understand why we aren't equally upset when it's a poor minority kid as an affluent white kid.
