Black Men, We Are Onto You

Abby Zimet

Poor West Virginia. Not only does it have a horrific chemical spill and inept government; it has black people living there, walking, working, talking and indulging in other potentially suspicious activities. From John Cole, a terrific catch titled Scenes From A Post-Racial America, from the local paper, on efforts by the sheriff's department to catch a (needless to say) black bad guy. Sample comment:  "I live on Long Island, but I think I saw the suspect today."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site.

If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
