What does it take for Black Americans to feel safe right now? Video The New York Times 2 July 2020
For some, it’s owning a gun.
Even if that’s not something
they may have ever wanted to do.
In the video above,
a chorus of Black voices from across the country
— a schoolteacher in Oakland, Calif.,
a political strategist in Aurora, Colo., and others —
have an urgent message: “Go buy a gun. Arm yourself.
And just make sure you get some training.”
This is by no means the first time
many Black Americans have felt the need
to arm themselves for self-preservation.
But with a white couple pulling guns
on Black Lives Matter protesters in St. Louis,
right-wing extremists increasing attacks
and co-opting rallies to advance their own messaging
and half of Black Americans already feeling
that they can’t trust the police to treat them equally,
some Black Americans are saying they now have no choice
but to exercise their Second Amendment right.

'He Was Unarmed, but He Was Black.' My Son Ahmaud Arbery Was Murdered. Video NYT Opinion The New York Times 10 June 2020
After Ahmaud Arbery was chased down and killed
while he was jogging in Glynn County, Ga., investigators say,
one of the white men accused of shooting him used a racial slur.
In the above video,
Wanda Cooper-Jones, Mr. Arbery’s mother,
demands that these men be prosecuted
not just on charges of killing her son
but also for targeting him because of his skin color.
Yet as it now stands, that can’t happen:
Georgia is one of just four states in the country
without a hate crime law.
Georgia lawmakers can change this.
They’re going back into session next Monday,
giving them the opportunity to decide
whether to bring a hate crime bill up for a vote.
If we can’t stop these hate-inspired attacks,
we can at least prosecute them for what they are.
