Terence Crutcher. Keith Lamont Scott. Two more beloved dark-skinned children of God killed in the streets of US cities by law enforcement. Two more families devastated as they mourn loved ones dead too early, and dead unnecessarily. As I write this post, 706 people have been shot and killed by police in the United States in 2016 — and there’s three and a half months left in this year. That is more than two people per day! The Washington Post is keeping a count here.
This cannot be ignored. We are being destroyed by racism and we must repent of the sin of racism and make bold efforts to dismantle racism.
